The 16 Best Hawaiian Shirts For Men

Published By

The days of the Hawaiian shirt being a style afterthought, a piece that you only throw on when lounging at a friend’s pool party … well, those days are long gone. Hawaiian shirts combine laidback ease and classic patterns and colors with the right type of styling details for 2018. Which is to say, the fits have been updated, the design touches have been dialed in, and the range of brands making a stylish men’s camp shirt has grown exponentially since the days when your dad wore one routinely.

The best Hawaiian shirts simply just work with everything from light wash denim to slim rolled chinos — footwear that leans classic and casual also works wonders here. Try one with canvas sneakers, leather loafers, or even suede chukkas. Feel like throwing on a lightweight navy blazer and grey chinos? These Hawaiian shirts can work with that combo, too. And for day after day of laidback relaxation at an outdoor patio or your favorite brewery, they just get the job done — even off the clock. You’ll be blown away by how stylish the Hawaiian shirt can be — trust us. Here are the 15 best.
