SHIRT FOR THOUGHT:
If you're gonna wear a Hawaiian Shirt, then shouldn't it be made in Hawaii?
For those of us living in Hawaii, this makes total sense. Oddly, we're seeing more and more blogs, magazine articles and high fashion houses showcasing their love for Hawaiian shirts made by brands with no roots in Hawaii. Sadly, these shirts aren't even made in Hawaii! 😲
"Hawaiian shirts" made in Cambodia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Sri Lanka or wherever labor is the cheapest. Sweat shops filled with mass produced fabrics then market at a premium as Hawaiian. No, no, no... This is not Hawaiian.
Or worse, have you seen those cheap knock-offs on Amazon selling for pennies and looking more Halloween costumy than authentic? They're shockingly abhor & so so so tacky 👎. We do not wear any of that in Hawaii.
Do you think you'll see shirts like that on Magnum P.I. or Hawaii Five-O? Cheap tacky shirts made in sweatshops disguised as Hawaiian?
No, of course not.
Visit Hawaii and the warm friendly aloha spirit our islands offer starts soaking into your pores. You'll find yourself melting into a relaxed chilled state.
