A blue aloha shirt

An Aloha shirt (also known as a Hawaiian shirt) is a type of shirt that comes from Hawaii. It is the most popular type of clothing made in Hawaii.[1] The shirts are usually short sleeved, have buttons and have collars. The brand was first sold in a Honolulu shop by a Japanese immigrant in 1904. After his death in 1915, his son took over the shop and continued selling them.[2]
