The shirt is 100% polyester! Maybe Rayon? I don't know. It's Rai Nani. Bright blue with a beach scean and a dumb rainbow in the middle of the whole thing. I tucked it into my tight white bell bottoms for the disco dance. I have 50's era shirts but there is something just wrong enough about this shirt for me to sport it proudly!

No prob ATP. I love the eye candy of a beautiful aloha shirt.
Here's the others I got at that sale: (all the metal hangers have been replaced)



I didn't realize that this was a set until I was at checkout because I was holding an armload of things. The shirt was in the man's closet upstairs and the dress was in the woman's closet downstairs. Probably the first time they have been back together in years.


And finally a couple of others for the ladies:

The first one being a Lucky 13 button up shirt, and not sure, but it may have been a prototype. Someone can correct my memory on this shirt, if you own or seen others around.(I seem to remember buying on ebay as a prototype)

***LATEST UPDATE***
Found out recently(03/28/11) that Lucky 13 only made 150 TOTAL of these shirts. They said approximately 30 XL were made, and only the medium sizes are test batched/prototyped samples. Lucky 13 told me I have a really rare piece from their spring 2001 catalog. That is the lowest "production" shirt I've ever owned, or known of. I'm stoked.

Hey Tom, I just stumbled onto this thread. I have two Lucky 13 shirts. The one like yours is a size medium-the other is a large.
Cheers

My Fave shirt is the one that I happen to be wearing at the time. Like most of us here , it is tough to pick a favorite.
Here’s one of mine-subject to change at any time.

Hey post a pic of your favorite Hawaiian Shirt, ground rules, just one pic at a time, not your full quiver of Island goodness.



Yes. Is my new favorite Hawaiian shirt. Made in Hawaii.

Sometimes life quirk. Curious twist of fate.

I will help you.

I did not own a Hawaiian shirt. Mick Jagger is a favourite entertainer. He is wearing Hawaiian shirt on a sailboat. For years I search for similar shirt. There is a famous American book written by Ernest Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea.

A few hours after posting, I went to Hawaiian delicatessen. And purchased my first Hawaiian shirt. It is not what we think of as "traditional" Hawaiian shirt with the cocoanut buttons. It is tokidoki scrubs. Made in Hawaii. Tokidoki is by Italian artist Simone Legno. Scrubs is Americanese for clothing worn in hospital operating theatre. To be worn as casual; about same as t-shirt.

So. Very funny coincidence of posting Mick Jagger wearing Hawaiian shirt and then purchasing my first Hawaiian shirt.

Perhaps it is my English—as—second—language. So sorry.

Mick and Ernest are some friends of yours?

...and they like to wear Hawaiian shirts?

...and live by the sea?
