    All of the shirts I've posted so far are new, modern re-pops of vintage/retro prints.

    Beautiful pieces. A few of my favorites from my collection/classified. I have a thing for not just prints, but actual scenes.

    I love Hawaiian shirts with leather jackets. I don't know what it is about the combination but when it works, it looks really nice.

    Can someone tell me which are the high end aloha shirt labels? I see Tori Richards, Tommy Bahama, and Kahala everywhere, but I am looking for something more higher end.

    I don't believe any of those manufacturers are really considering very high end if you're talking about the true top notch stuff.
    I would look at Sun Surf, Star of Hollywood, John Severson, and Flat Head's Limited Aloha line.
