The 58 Greatest Hawaiian Shirts of All Time

Hawaiian shirts

Fact: it takes quite the set of cojones to pull off wearing a Hawaiian shirt.

Also fact: most men don’t have ’em.

That being said, there are some real pros out there who do. And right now, we’d like to honor these brave souls who’ve unwaveringly taken up the charge. Through painstaking research—no scene left unexamined, no paparazzi shot ignored—we’ve uncovered the best and boldest examples of tropical-print artistry. A testament to confidence, these men are standards to aspire to. (At least when it comes to visually making a statement.)

So without further ado, and in no particular order, we present to you the 58 greatest Hawaiian shirts, ever.»
