Are leather Hawaiian shirts a thing? Asking for a friend.
"Hawaiian shirts’ meanings play out in surprising ways within the far-right’s efforts to make their ideology mainstream. For mainstream onlookers, Hawaiian shirts worn with tactical gear may fool them about the boogaloo’s true colours. The common association of Hawaiian prints with relaxed easy-going attitudesis misguided here. The boogaloo are bent on violence and hope for a second civil war to advance their agenda.

Called aloha shirts in Hawaii, these garments were reclaimed from their colonialist implications by Indigenous Hawaiian designers. Since the mid-1980s, designers like Sig Zane have injected aloha prints with authentic Indigenous energy.

Early Hawaiian shirts featured Asian motifs, which were replaced by local motifs in the 1930s. With this shift the shirts started embodying “aloha,” meaning respect for all animated or inanimate beings.

For Hawaiians, and especially Indigenous Hawaiians, the boogaloo’s co-opting of Hawaiian shirts is outrageous. In today’s Hawaii, aloha shirts symbolize tolerance and Hawaiians don’t want it associated with the racism of the boogaloo."

The same kind of dudes who want to cancel Aloha shirts today wanted to cancel Barbour jackets 2 years ago because Steve Bannon wore one.

I lived in Hawaii for 7 years and never felt comfortable in an aloha shirt, therefore never wore one despite ALL my coworkers rocking them daily.
