Exotical is a Hawaiian Apparel store located in downtown Downey, Ca. I work in Downey and drove past this place for several months before I went in. The owner is the same owner from the sixties. He makes all the clothing. In earlier times the store was bigger and he also had rattan furniture. He sold of some of the store. He only now deals in apparel. I found some of the best Hawaiian shirts. I highly recommend a visit.
Exotical's phone number has changed.
We also have a website at www.goexotical.com and Facebook page.

The Exotical is still going strong! My brother Jon and I have been running the store under our father for the last year. After 46 years, our grandfather has retired the business to us. We have a lot of great vintage Hawaiian clothing as well as some new and exciting arrivals from Hawaii. Check out our website at http://www.goexotical.com or our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Exotical-Hawaiian-Apparel/157737910978938 for more info. See you there!
Great to hear you are keeping the family tradition alive, that is rare! And about time for Paul to retire, I was amazed to still find him there year after year. Folks, go to this store, it is the Oceanic Arts of Aloha wear!

.... So I'm at Exotical yesterday and started small talk with Martin Orloff and told him I was Eli Hedley's Grandson. He said his dad and Eli were working on a job together at Lake Elsinore and Eli had a big canoe and paddle. They ended up sending young Martin off to sea. He said he'll never forget how much fun it was.
I wonder what job ....
