Your association with summer and holidays may have something to do with it. Its appearance dates back to the 20th and 30s of the twentieth century in Hawaii. But of great importance was Koichiro Miyamoyo, a tailor in Honolulu who started sewing patterned shirts from the fabrics used to make kimonos, and who would market them in the magazine as “Aloha sweaters”. However, the patent is held by Ellery Chun, who saw that Hawaiian citizens used them a lot and did business. So he founded King-Smith Clothiers and patented the brand in 1937. Between these two names, they still promoted its commercialization today.
The cinema has done a great service for Hawaiian shirts since they started wearing such famous faces from the 50’s onwards. Al Pacino, Tom Selleck, Leonardo Dicaprio or even Elvis Presley himself.
At present, this garment is usually seen in both day and night plans and it is common for the most important brands on the market to have one in their catalog. Its main partner in an “outfit” is a short or long jeans. But beware, with tailored pants and “sneakers” you can create a winning look.
