Hawaiian shirts - Page 3

post #31 of 55
All right. I was just curious because I buy a lot of patterned short-sleeve shirts -- especially florals -- but I never considered any of them "Hawaiian", due to them being quite fitted and the prints modern. Thanks!

I see a few 50's rayon ones on Ebay that are made in Japan.

This site has the rundown on the history of Hawaiian shirts as well as tones of killer shirt porn. It seems that rayon print shirts were popular from the 30s to the 50s. There are some killer examples shown too. http://www.vintagehawaiianshirt.net/ Just killer

Hmmm I dont know how easy it'd be to find xl japanese made hawaiian shirts. Dont they tend to make the majority of clothes in smaller sizes? This place has some killer shirts.http://www.thehanashirtco.com/ A google search of vintage hawaiian shirts will turn up some hits I think. The fun of this stuff is hunting for it. Good luck.

It says XS, not XL. Regardless, a Japanese S would probably be the equivalent of an American XS. I see stuff like this all over Yahoo Japan all the time ...

There is a difference. Rayon is man-made fiber, made of reprocessed cellulose, such as from wood pulp. Synthetic fibers, such as Nylon, polyester, acrylic, etc. are made from polymers.

I got my Flat Head Hawaiian shirt today. So nice and lightweight, but my wallet is so much more empty now. I like the fit on it a lot but it is really short in the body.
