The Modern Hawaiian Shirt


On the heels of our Selleck appreciation, we noticed a modern take on one of the man’s signature pieces. Ladies and gentlemen, Our Legacy is getting in on the Aloha shirt.

It’s more 2011 than 1986 (that’s the first button-down collar we’ve seen on a Hawaiian shirt, for instance), but the important beach-ready touches are still the same. We’re talking about the light fabric and the high side vents—the details that make it fit for 90-degree days. The biggest shock is that you’ll have to deal with long sleeves…but by our lights they look better rolled up anyway.

The mustache is optional.
