Hawaiian Shirts For Boys

Hawaiian Shirts For Boys

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 design on the pocket and on the shirt align perfectly, like a jigsaw puzzle.

Having the pockets line up exactly is an attention to detail that drives up the price so the shirts on this page do not have pockets that match the pattern on the shirt exactly. I thought that it was more important in this case to present an economical shirt than a totally authentic shirt.

Will your children notice? Maybe not but mine would have. That little but important detail about Hawaiian shirts is one of the first things that we learned when we were in Hawaii. However, my sons certainly would not have complained about being given any aloha shirt. They might, however, have had a problem in choosing just one of these color options from RJC.



LOOKING FOR HAWAIIAN SHIRTS FOR YOUR SONS?


Are you planning a family trip to Hawaii? Maybe you have already had your Hawaiian vacation or you are planning a Hawaiian themed party or costume. Whatever the reason you need one, you can be relieved that you do not have to travel to Hawaii to buy one.

Your boys, from size 2 to 18, will look great in any one of these shirts. Even after our vacation, my sons were thrilled to have a reason to put on their Hawaiian shirts. They had a feel for the retro style and they were reminded of the fun they had in Hawaii when they put them on. To my guys and even to my husband, a Hawaiian or aloha shirt means good times!

Buying from Amazon means that you can buy a shirt in advance of your trip or even afterward when you arrive home and you or your son really, really wish that you had purchased the one you saw while you were in Oahu. Of course, no trip to Hawaii is required at all. You can just buy one of these shirts because your son would love to have one!

  1. We took our trip to Hawaii in 1988 to see our best friends & former California neighbors who had moved to Oahu. And yes we got a Hawaiian shirt for Hubby (I got a Muumuu). Hawaiian shirts are such fun to wear and they do bring back the fond memories when worn.

  2. Well what timing for me. We are headed to Hawaii on Thursday this week......yikes, I still have to pack. Now that Hawaiian shirt would be a great take along. Hubby doesn't think we have time before we leave, even with Prime. So I may just have to buy him one there. Thanks Brenda for some lovely options.

  3. What a fun idea! I worked in the fashion industry in NYC for a decade, so having patterns aligned (seams, pockets, etc.) is something I definitely notice. But if it doesn't bother the boy who will wear it, I agree that it's nice to have a more economical option, especially at the rate most boys tend to outgrow their clothing. :)

    1. Definitely nice to have an affordable option, Margaret. Interesting that you worked in the fashion industry in NYC. That'd be a story!

  4. I love Hawaiian shirts! The brightly colored beach scenes are always gorgeous. My husband and I recently wore matching Hawaiian shirts to a themed retirement party. All of the Hawaii shirts were awesome. Hawaiian shirts are simply fun to wear whether you have been to Hawaii or not. Now you have made me wonder. I need to go back to our closet and look at the pockets.
