The Not-So-Chill History of Hawai‘i’s Breeziest Shirt

Interesting article! Thanks for posting.

I bought my first Aloha Shirt in Key West in 1990. I was strolling down Duval street looking in shop windows, and suddenly saw a big smiling picture of Magnum, PI (I'm a huge fan), wearing his famous red shirt. And that very shirt was also for sale!! Of course I had to buy it. I've had many more over the decades, until they wear out or "shrink" (fail to keep up with my expanding girth).
