Hey post a pic of your favorite Hawaiian Shirt, ground rules, just one pic at a time, not your full quiver of Island goodness.
I know Kate wins this for most cool shirts, but only one is needed for this topic, your most favorite one.

Let the fashion show begin!

Generic Hawaiiana print shirts are too easy. How about making it more interesting and post only classic Tiki-style print shirts?

I wanna see some actual Tikis and abstract Modernist designs. As true Tikiphiles, this is the only style of print we should be wearing anyway.

Like this.....

If I have to choose just ONE...I'd say this one, because I always get alot of comments & compliments on it whenever I wear it. I think the colors are fetching, it's a soft flannel type material, and it's unusual in that it features New Zealand images.




I also like because it was a $3.99 Salvation Army find.

Tiki Shaker, you are bad!
And Kaiwaza, that must be the only Aloha shirt with Penguins on it!

I was wondering:
Your favorite Hawaiian shirt you OWN? Or can it be one you have images off?
And if you own it, does it have to be one you wear?

I have quite a few that are too small for me that I had to have as art pieces for future publication. Here is such a shirt, still my all-time favorite vintage Tiki shirt, I think the pattern will become the end pages of the "Look of Tiki".



To better appreciate the print, here's a close up:



It has details of Gold in it. I have also seen it in yellow-to-beige tones, even more striking!

My favorite is the latest addition to my collection. 49 cents at the thrift store in perfect condition and vintage Hawaiian.

The closeup shows the color best.

Seeing as I'm not sure which set of rules to follow I go with some and break some...

My only shirt that has Tiki on it



Close up



plus it reminds me of childhood exposure to tiki at Disneyland

Abstract, Authentic, Hilo Hattie



My Favorite Hawaiian Shirt

as a Ukulele player this tops it.

My taste goes towards Vintage 50s & 60s Hawaiian shirts, I really like bark cloth over other types of shirts, mostly depicting Tikis etc
I am really digging this one at the moment.....
