Welcome to the Hawaiian shirt blog, archive and news resource. Aloha shirts are a reflection of the Hawaiian culture and the broader world. For example, the rise and fall of the famous 'pinup' theme shirts that gain popularity during times of war or national strife.
Aloha shirts are considered by their many ardent fans as wearable pieces of art. Hawaiians see them as a source of historic culture. There have even been some public exhibits of historical vintage shirts. We also offer vintage shirts from our own private collection, please see the links below.
