The Zoo Animal Hawaiian Shirt known as the Aloha shirt, is one of the typical cultural symbols of the Hawaiian Islands. Designed with colorful, bright and varied patterns, Hawaiian shirts have become an integral part of the culture and lifestyle of the locals. The history of Hawaiian shirts began in the 1920s when locals started creating shirts with Hawaiian island motifs. Since then, Hawaiian shirts have become an important part of casual wear as well as reception attire and corporate uniforms on the island.
Zoo Animal Hawaiian Shirt
One of the best known Zoo Animal Hawaiian Shirt origin stories belongs to the Chun family and the King-Smith Clothiest store. In a 1964 interview, Ellery Chun shared that watching local Hawaiian boys wear comfortable shirts made from Japanese callis and Filipino boys wearing colorful designs. The vibrant color called the Bayau (printed t-shirt) shirt, which inspired him to seek out a tailor to create his first floral printed Kimono t-shirts in 1932 (or 1933). Grasping fast tastes, when seeing a lot of young men looking to tailor shops to order Hawaiian shirts, Ellery came up with the idea to order ready-made Hawaiian shirt designs and sell them at King-Smith Clothiers store. Ellery was also the first to copyright “Aloha Sportswear” and “Aloha Shirts” in 1936 and 1937.
