Hawaiian / Aloha Shirts

Postby snakebite » Sun, 16 Apr 2017 11:58 am

Maybe I'm just not a very good shopper, but it seems there are very few and far between shops that stock any decent Hawaiian / Aloha shirts for men.

Not looking for anything too outrageous. Thinking along the lines of linen, neutral/pastel colours, palm leaves/beach/nature style.

I am not that large so the American sizing of e.g. 48" chest being a "medium", will not work.

Any suggestions? Have already scoured the usual suspects at Orchard (Tangs, Taka etc) to no avail.

Cheers

Not sure where you are getting your sizing information from but a 48" chest in the US is a size XL~2XL. A Medium is a 38~40" chest. From a medium Yank.

Hmm numerous websites seem to say otherwise. Might be that Hawaiian shirts are supposed to be roomier than ordinary ones...not sure.Image

Zara has a high number of Hawaiian shirts in at the moment. Slim-fitting with tasteful colourways. Worth checking out.
