Hawaiian Shirts For Boys

Updated on October 15, 2014

Looking For Hawaiian Shirts For Your Boys?

Are you planning a family trip to Hawaii? Maybe you have already had your Hawaiian vacation or maybe you are planning a Hawaiian themed party. Whatever the reason, if you are looking for a Hawaiian shirt for your son or sons, you can be relieved that you do not have to travel to Hawaii to find them.

On this page you will find a great selection of Hawaiian shirts. Your little boys will look smashing in any one of them. My sons were always thrilled to have a reason to put on their Hawaiian shirts. They had a feel for the retro style of these shirts and they were reminded of good times at the beach in the sun and the surf when they put them on. To my guys and even to my husband, a Hawaiian or aloha shirt means good times!

What Is A Hawaiian Shirt?

I've always called our Hawaiian shirts exactly that, Hawaiian shirts but I see now that some people call them aloha shirts. Whatever you call them, you know that we are referring to a type of shirt that originated in Hawaii.

The Hawaiian or aloha shirt usually features a bold pattern, short sleeves, a button front and a collar. They also feature a straight hem and are worn untucked. They usually have a pocket sewn on the chest and purists say that on a REAL Hawaiian shirt, the fabric of the pocket and the shirt match exactly, like a jigsaw puzzle. This attention to detail, however, drives the price up on a Hawaiian shirt up so the ones featured on this page do not have pockets that match the pattern on the shirt exactly. I thought it was better to have a more economical shirt choice for children then to have a totally authentic shirt. I will not go so far as to say they will not notice the difference because mine would have. That is one of the first things we learned in Hawaii. However, my sons certainly would NOT have complained about being given any of these aloha shirts. They might, however, have had a problem in choosing just ONE shirt.

Hawaiian Shirts For Boys

Are you impressed with the variety of Hawaiian shirts that are available through Amazon for your boys? I am. The selection means that you can buy a shirt in ADVANCE of your trip to Hawaii or buy one AFTER your trip to Hawaii when you arrive home and you or your son really, really wish you had purchased the one you saw while you were in Hawaii. The availability means, too, that you can just buy one because your son would love to own one because he loves the spirit of Hawaii.

Which Hawaiian shirt would you choose for the boys in your life?

      My younger son (9) has suddenly decided he is a button-down kind of guy rather than a t-shirt kind of guy. Maybe I'll get him some Aloha shirts for Christmas!

      My favorite Hawaiian shirt is the guitars and palm trees on the black background. When I see a Hawaiian shirt I think of fun times!

      I kind of like the ukelele shirt and think my boys would have chosen that one. One of my sons, who shall remain nameless to avoid his getting mad at me for telling this, actually took tap dancing lessons when he was about 3 and had a Hawaiian shirt that he wore in the recital. Later, he had another one that he wore, along with sunglasses, when he dressed like Magnum PI. He's grown now and I'm pretty sure doesn't own a Hawaiian shirt anymore. :) Maybe someday he'll have a little boy who can wear one of these retro Hawaiian aloha shirts. I love 'em!
