The History of Hawaiian Shirts

Nearly a century ago, in the 1920s, the Hawaiian shirt first popped up in Hawaii. Several clothing sellers began fashioning shirts from colorful Japanese material, and they became popular in the then-U.S. territory. In the 1930s, people began referring to the shirts as "Aloha shirts," and manufacturers started mass-producing them after the war. Elvis Presley eventually wore a Hawaiian shirt on the cover of "Blue Hawaii," cementing the shirt's popularity.

When to Wear Authentic Hawaiian Shirts for Men

Hawaiian shirts are casual. Unless you have a dress-down policy at work, you shouldn't wear them to the office. That said, they provide the perfect choice for men who want to look good but don't want to wear something formal.

You can wear a Hawaiian shirt to a friend's birthday party or to get drinks with the guys. They'll help you stay cool in the San Antonio heat, making them a good choice for activities such as visiting the zoo with your kids and enjoying a neighborhood barbecue.

What to Wear Hawaiian Shirts With

You can pair Hawaiian shirts with a range of clothing. A Hawaiian shirt is a dress-down selection, and it can soften whatever you pair it with. Consider wearing the shirts with these other types of clothing and accessories:

You can also dress down a suit or sport coat by wearing a Hawaiian shirt underneath.
