Yellow shirts, honoring the country's beloved King Bhumibol Adulyadej on the 60th anniversary of his accession to the throne, are so popular that there aren't enough to go around.

Thailand is marking the anniversary this month with elaborate celebrations to be attended by more than two dozen heads of state and representatives of royal families from around the globe.

Ordinary Thais, meanwhile, are showing their allegiance to the king by heeding a government-encouraged campaign to wear yellow shirts. Yellow is the king's birth color, traditionally corresponding to the day he was born, a Monday.

Suppliers say they're running out of shirts, and buyers complain they are being gouged by sellers.
