The Aloha Shirt

The Hawaiian or Aloha shirt is one fashion trend that is here to stay. The original Aloha shirt was created in the 1930's by Ellery Chun who was a Chinese merchant in Waikki. The original Aloha shirt was made for tourists from kimona fabric.

This may be a little surprising to you but vintage Hawaiian shirts are a highly sought after collectible and regularly sell for hundreds of dollars.

Over the years the Hawaiian shirt became a popular souvenir with tourist and in 1961 Elvis Presley wore a red Aloha shirt for the album of Blue Hawaii. Aloha Friday began in 1966 when young adults started wearing the Aloha shirt to work every Friday. This gradually spread and became the Casual Friday that we all know today.

Although the Hawaiian shirt has been worn by several famous celebrities over the years, many people associate the Hawaiian shirt with Tom Selleck who frequently wore a Hawaiian shirt for the popular Television series Magnum PI which aired in the 1980's.

Karen, this was a fun Hub. I happen to have about a half-dozen Hawaiian shirts hanging in my closet, from when I went through a "kick" a few years ago. Think I'll get them out for a closer look, maybe sell a couple on eBay, and buy a new one or two. The longer ones are great toppers for bathing suits and make fantastic over-shirts with crisp while summer pants and a camisole or tank.
