The modern Aloha shirt, commonly referred to as a Hawaiian shirt, was devised in the early 1930s by Chinese merchant Ellery Chun at a store in Waikiki. The first advertisement in the Honolulu Advertiser for Chun’s Aloha shirt was published in 1935. Local residents, especially surfers and tourists, descended on Chun’s store and bought every shirt he had. A legend was born.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary from brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
