The Aloha shirts are also referred as the Hawaiian shirts. This is a style of dress shirt originating in the Hawaii Islands. It is currently the main export of the Hawaii Textile manufacturing industry. The shirts are printed, mostly short-sleeved, and are collared. They usually have buttons, sometimes for the full length of the shirt, and sometimes just down to the chest. Aloha shirts usually have a left chest pocket sewn in, often with attention to ensure the printed pattern remains continuous. Aloha shirts may be worn by men, children, and women, where women’s shirts usually have a lower-cut style& the lower hem is straight.
The Hawaii made shirts, which are exported to the mainland United States and other countries are called as Hawaiian shirts, and they are often brilliantly colored with floral patterns or generic Polynesian motifs. You can easily recognize them anywhere because of their special large floral patterns.
Traditional men’s Aloha shirts, which are manufactured for the local residents, are usually decorated with traditional Hawaiian designs and simple floral patterns in more soft colors. Modern shirts may have prints that do not feature any traditional Hawaii designs but they have automobiles, drinks or some other elements arranged in the same pattern as a traditional Aloha shirt.
The Hawaii Shirts manufactured for local use are formal wear, and thus are regarded as equivalent to a shirt or coat. The visitors or guests to the Hawaii islands often wear designs of the bright colors while those who are living in the islands for a long time prefer less busy patterns. These shirts are often printed on the interior, resulting in the gentle color on the exterior, and are called as reverse print. This looks like a manufacturing defect but it’s not!
The related concept of an Aloha Attire has arrived from the Aloha shirt. The dress for weddings, birthday parties and dinners are often designated as Aloha Attire. This means men wear Aloha shirts and women wear other tropical prints. Because Hawaii tends to be more casual, it is not appropriate to attend such functions in the full evening wear. Instead, Aloha Attire has seen as more common and a medium dress between excessive formality and casual wear. Of course, this is applicable when you are in the Hawaii state or the Big island.
Aloha Friday is a tradition of celebrating the weekend by wearing a casual attire on Fridays, initially started out of an effort to promote Aloha shirts & more men participate in this celebration than women. The Aloha shirts have a long history in Hawaii and the shirts have become famous as Vintage Hawaiian Shirts all over the World.
