Re: Aloha shirts

How does the sizing work on these Aloha shirts, would a Large equate to a 16/41 neck size?

And is one's appreciation of the voodoo music of Les Baxter and Martin Denny enhanced when sporting a Aloha shirt whilst sipping a rumbullion cocktail?

Is a shirt with WWII bomber motiffs suitable attire for my European vacation?

Thanks!

Re: Aloha shirts

Just take whatever alpha size you usually choose and you'll be fine.

I wear a shirt with WWII bomber motifs regularly, just like this one: https://www.alohaland.com/images/flyin. … 7544.2.jpg. Jerry doesn't mind.

Sizing can tend to be a bit large on older shirts (pre 60's), bigger than you would expect ( a medium would be closer to your size), modern/repros tend to be true to size (so a large is probably closer to 16/41).

Not essential for a bit of Exotica, but a loop collar seems to suit it better than a button down.

I've avoided military related alohas, not for danger of causing offence but the only one I own ( a 'Victory in the Pacific' shirt) is historically incorrect and I also tend to prefer more abstract designs.

Re: Aloha shirts

I never did make it to Present last year when they had their batch of Spooners here... really wanted to test the water sizewise so could plunder on ebay...

I find Beyond Retro/Rokit excellent on the Aloha side mind....some rich pickings and some in great nick...all luck on the size front of course...

There's a great scene in 'The Wanderers' where a bunch of Aloha wearing gangster guineas take care of a few bowling hustlers...

Re: Aloha shirts

If anyone can point me in the direction of Sun Surf's 'Pinapple Chain Border' style SS36828 in green, size 15-15.5 (medium??) that'd be much appreciated.

I make sure to watch American Graffiti every summer... It's getting close to that time again...

Still can't do them. Don't think I'll ever be able to.

Re: Aloha shirts

I usually wear 'em with a pair of shorts wink

That's actually not true... I usually go for an aloha shirt with some broken-in khakis and blue Keds-type sneakers... a great look with untucked madras as well, a la Curt from American Graffiti...

Re: Aloha shirts

A nice one.

I think maybe a guy can pull off the Hawaiian shirt look if a guy wears a nice, expensive watch. And sails a boat.
