no one will GIVE one of these off their backs: but at the Hawaiian Shirt Show at Momo there were some for sale!

Danny Eskenazi famous Aloha Shirt Aficionado, exhibited 5 rare vintage Aloha Hawaiian Shirts. Textile artist Huei Huang was selling tiny Aloha Shirts for boys... super cute!

A special selection of Hawaiian shirts from Honolulu's Iolani Sport were part of the Trunk Sale, as well as shirts from Danny's personal collection. Nothing rare, mostly modern stuff.

Momo is a cute boutique store with an ecclectic mix of Japanese and Hawaiian doodads and clothing.

Danny, from our Seattle Hawaiiana Club



circa 1940 shirts for display only! similar shirts have sold for $1000 recently on ebay. and Danny isnt willing to part with his!


nifty cubbyholes full of stuff

Sox for special people with only 2 toes

oh its spam! many flavours

Danny shows us the "rarest of the rare" Aloha Shirts from the book

The owner serves up drinks

yummy pupus throughout the store

ittybitty shirts for kids. handmade. Huei has a passion for fabrics and the colors, textures and styling of vintage things. her VERY stylish son was wearing the most adorable Nehru Suit. geez. i forgot to take his pic. argh. hopefully the store will post pictures and i'll grab them for my blog!


made a few new contacts and found a nifty place to shop!
