Hawaiian Shirt FAQs

What pants go with Hawaiian shirts?2021-06-08T18:43:44+01:00

The best trousers or shorts to pair with your Hawaiian shirt depends on the event you’re wearing it to, and how exactly you’d like to style it. Whilst locals in Hawaii prefer to pair their shirts with plain, lightweight Khakis (particularly in tan or neutral tones), Aloha shirts worn to ‘shit shirt’ nights here in the UK are often paired with jeans. For those looking to create a truly wacky look, we’re set to stock matching lightweight shorts and shirts sets, perfect for your next wacky shirt event. 

Are Hawaiian shirts supposed to fit big?2021-06-08T18:43:25+01:00

While Aloha shirts are traditionally worn untucked or even open, they are often designed to fit comfortably, meaning you shouldn’t need to size up. Despite this, many buying Hawaiian shirts opt for larger sizes (particularly for shit shirt nights), contributing to the public’s perception of Hawaiian shirts as ill-fitting. Be sure to order your Aloha shirt in the correct size for a finished look – though, if you’re still after a looser fit, remember that there are many cuts or fits of Hawaiian shirt available online, including slim fit, regular fit, and oversized fit.

Why is it called Hawaiian shirt?2021-06-08T18:43:04+01:00

Hawaiian shirts, also known as Aloha shirts, are named for their origins. Though the exact story behind today’s famous Hawaiian shirts is unclear, it is thought by many that they originated in the 1920s or ‘30s in a Hawaiian dry goods store, where a seamstress began making shirts from Japanese kimono fabric. Upon being embraced by both locals and tourists, the design became a hit worldwide and is still trending, even in 2021. Hawaiian shirts are also a popular feature at many ‘bad’ or ‘shit’ shirt nights thanks to their bright design and bold patterning.

Do you wear a shirt under a Hawaiian shirt?2021-06-08T18:42:38+01:00

Whether or not you wear a shirt under your Hawaiian or Aloha shirt is completely up to you. For many spending late nights out in beer gardens in the UK, wearing an additional shirt under an open Hawaiian shirt is a great way of staying comfortably warm, whilst looking stylish. Depending on your chosen design, our stylists recommend wearing a plain white T-shirt under an open Aloha shirt for an on-trend look in 2021. 

What is the purpose of an aloha shirt?2021-06-08T18:42:16+01:00

The Aloha shirt (also referred to as the Hawaiian shirt) is a truly versatile style of shirt. Traditionally, these shirts feature a button-down design,  straight collar, short sleeves, and lightweight fabric. They are traditionally worn untucked and are popular as both causal wear, party wear, and even informal business attire in their native Hawaii. 

The casual, lightweight, and easy-to-layer nature of the Aloha shirt makes them perfect for warmer days here in the UK, where both men and women can be found sporting them day-to-day, and at events. They also feature heavily at ‘bad shirt’ or ‘shit shirt’ nights thanks to their traditionally bold patterned designs. 

What is a Hawaiian shirt night?2021-06-08T18:41:52+01:00

A Hawaiian shirt night, more commonly known as a shit shirt night, is a hugely popular type of fancy dress party and staple of British culture. Celebrated across the country by students and club members alike, these much-loved events encourage all guests to wear a Hawaiian shirt – a collared and buttoned dress shirt featuring a bold print. Whether your chosen shirt is floral, wacky, colourful, Hawaiian or damn right shit, this is a night to chuck on a Hawaiian shirt and be confident in what you’re wearing. Stand out from the crowd and order a truly shit shirt from Shit Shirt Club, the UK’s leading Hawaiian shirt stockists.

Are Hawaiian shirts in style in 2021?2021-06-08T18:39:06+01:00

No item of clothing better represents endless days of sunshine than the Hawaiian shirt. That might explain why shit shirts and Hawaiian prints are well on their way to becoming the trendiest menswear item of 2021, having been sported by the likes of David Beckham and Harry Styles in the early months of April and May!

The sunny origins of the shit shirt don’t mean you need to sport an oversized style straight from Honolulu airport. Instead, get on-trend and channel the retro feel of a classic aloha shirt with modernised cuts and prints seen in our range of shit shirts. Our new Hawaiian shirts are cut in a flattering slim fit, helping differentiate your fits from your Dad’s, reading more 2021 than 1970.
