“The ‘Aloha Shirt’ or ‘Hawaiian Shirt’ was created in downtown Honolulu in the early 1920s.

Soon after the trend spawned across the islands of Hawaii and Guam, tourists and military men had to have an ‘aloha shirt.’…”

Not sure any of that cuts much ice with northern European anglers who catch you wearing these things in the middle of winter…
