Orvis Limited Edition Hawaiian Shirt

The “Aloha Shirt” or “Hawaiian Shirt” was created in downtown Honolulu in the early 1920s. The young teens from Hawaii would buy “kabe crepe” material from the dry goods stores and bring them back to their mothers to sew. Soon after the trend spawned across the islands of Hawaii and Guam, tourists and military men had to have an “aloha shirt.” Today, many contemporary menswear designers still use Hawaiian shirt inspired fabrics to create garments with more modern styling. Orvis releases their new “Limited-Edition” Hawaiian shirt but uses their love for fishing in the print and style. The best detail is the “coconut-shell buttons.” The shirt comes in four prints.
