A bowling shirt is a style of camp shirt in which the fabric, color and design vary greatly, but frequently incorporate contrasting earth tones and simple geometric designs, with more expensive ones often made of silk. They may have a single pocket on the left—small logos or monogram initials are also common options on the left breast.
The character of Charlie Harper, portrayed by Charlie Sheen in the situation comedy Two and a Half Men, often wore two tone bowling shirts. Two tone bowling shirts are also associated with bar and billiards culture, rockabilly, ska, and jump blues music.
