How to wear Aloha Shirts today?

Post by cabanalane »

Back in my days, and earlier, people wear their Aloha Shirts loose. I mean the downtown Bishop street crowd. That was in the 80-90s.

Today, when I look at the Reyn's models on their website, it looks like they wear their Aloha Shirts one side too small. Thinking of ordering some Aloha Shirts.

I don't mean the models are thin or fit in size. I mean it looks like the shirt is one size too small.

Is that how to wear the business attire now today? Is that how mens wear them now?

Not sure but I would wear mine loose.

Just went to the website, the model also had his tucked in. I think guys still wear them loose and untucked.

I wear mine loose but tucked. Go figure. I don't have much of one. :lol:

However if you've got the guns and washboard abs, then by all means, the tighter and more form-fitting the better.

I'm also loose and only in formal meetings do I tuck in.

Also I never button the top button. That's too "Downtown Business Man" for me.

I wear mine loose and never tucked in. I don't even own formal shoes so most likely no pass dress code for formal stuff. Never button top button to two or three I'm just casual like that. Anything that requires more attire isn't worth it to me. I mean it's enough I have an aloha shirt and shoes even if they are sports/tennis shoes. I would prefer surf shorts bare feet and if needed slippas and t shirt to get dressed up.

I usually get compliments on my Aloha shirts when I wear one here on the mainland so take pride Hawaii.

When the wife and I have a date night, it's always an UNtucked Aloha shirt and my Olukais. :)
