Aloha Shirts

The Aloha shirt, commonly referred to as a Hawaiian shirt, is a style of dress shirt originating in Hawaii.
Aloha shirts exported to the mainland United States are called Hawaiian shirts, and are brilliantly colored with floral patterns and Polynesian motifs.
The modern Aloha shirt was devised in the early 1930's by Chinese merchant Ellery Chun of King-Smith Clothiers and Dry Goods, a store in Waikiki. Local residents, especially surfers, as well as tourists descended on Chun's store and bought every shirt he had. Within years, major designer labels sprung up all over Hawaii and began manufacturing and selling Aloha shirts.
Today the Aloha shirt is widely accepted as business attire throughout the islands and a perfect shirt for casual Fridays on the mainland.
