A Kahala shirt makes you feel good. It's that simple. Our artwork reflects the lifestyle and vibrancy of Hawai'i. We carry a bit of the Waikiki beach boy spirit in our hearts, surf when the waves are good and never turn down an adventure.
We are family owned, community minded and committed to manufacturing the majority of our collection locally. After all, an aloha shirt made here in Hawai'i means something special.
The 1970's & 1980'S
Neons and pastels were the popular color trends of the 80’s and aloha shirts often showcased simple design motifs in fun contrasting colors. There was also a resurgence in reverse-print cotton broadcloth.
The 1990's and 2000's
The new millennium inspired us to embrace our waterman roots, with new product categories developed for an active life exploring land and sea.
Continuing our tradition of innovation in art and fabrics, we’ve launched exciting new products including our Performance & Collector’s Edition – a limited series of aloha shirts featuring iconic 1940s heritage prints, as well as collaborations with guest artists, designers, and community partners, each with a distinct perspective of life in Hawaii.
