Vintage 70s Hawaiian Shirt Historic Waianae Elbow Sleeved Cabana Shirt

Some Aloha shirts are just too interesting not to turn your head. This is a very unusual 1970s unlabeled mens Hawaiian Aloha shirt. This Hawaiian shirt is rather a cabana or camp style that pulls over the head and has a sexy one button closure low on the chest. The sleeves are an unusual elbow length and the shirt has fairly deep side hemline slits. The fabric is a medium heavy weight soft cotton duck and the colors are brick red, mustard yellow and golden brown. The print consists of postcard like scenes of Historic Waianae. The center button is a molded metal with Hawaiian insignia. This is a great beach shirt for after a day of surfing.

This shirt is in very good condition with light overall wear. The points where the hemline slits come together do show a tiny bit of fray more on one side than the other but not noticeably so. I have laundered and hung to dry so it is fresh and ready for wear.


Shoulder measured across back top - 18 inches (45.72 cm)
Chest circumference - 46 inches (118.84 cm)
Hip - 44 inches (111.76 cm)
Length - 28 inches (71.12 cm)

A vintage Aloha Shirt is an easily identifiable reminder of the exotic beauty and welcoming spirit of the Hawaiian Islands. These shirts are not only very collectible today, but fun to wear.

Julia made this whole purchase wonderful. For a start, it was a great shirt at a fine price - but from the moment I paid, her communication was lovely, and she kept me up to date on the international shipping. Even chatted with me about the original designer. And then, when the package arrived (quickly), it was lovingly packed and gift-wrapped, with a tag and personal message, saying she hoped I enjoyed wearing the shirt. So, all in all, a wonderful lady, offering a fab service, and delivering it all with style. Highly recommended to everybody!

I got this in the mail the same day that my daughter-in-law came by. We both went into a swoon, but alas, it's too big for the girls right now. That's okay. Children do grow too fast for us.

My quilt now has a great matching border and backing. (and I still have about 1/2 left for something else.Thank you for lovely wrapping of fabric too. Felt like Xmas opening it. Fully recommend this seller.
