Size charts for Hawaiian Aloha Shirts

Men's Hawaiian Shirt Sizes

Customers comment that the shirts in this group are sized as expected for a full cut Hawaiian shirt. Some say that 3XL and up run a bit small. Exchanges can be made on unused clothing if needed. Shipping costs apply, so if your group is large, consider ordering a few size samples if you have time.

Guayaberas run about a size larger than these measurements. They run larger than expected on the smaller sizes, but just about right for XXL and 3XL.

Women's Sizes

We have found that our men's shirts work fine on women. Generally step one size down when converting to men's sizes. We do have small and medium women's sizes in most prints, which are great for petites.

How to use our chart

This chart contains shirt measurements, not body measurements. Compare to a shirt you already have. Use a woven button up shirt to compare, not a knit or t-shirt. Measure seam to seam in inches. Plan on a normal 5% Shrinkage.

How to measure

The width is measured across front, armpit seam to armpit seam. The Height is measured from high point on shoulder (where the shoulder seam meets the collar) straight down the front to the bottom hem.

Cotton vs Rayon

We carry prints in both cotton and rayon. Both of these traditional Aloha shirt fabrics are cool, comfortable and easy to wear, and machine washable. These are both cellulose fabrics, produced from natural plant material. Cotton grows on its own, while rayon is made from wood pulp. (It is not related to synthetic fabrics like nylon or polyester that can sometimes be hot and sticky). Rayon drapes a little better than cotton and has a silky feel. We sell about equal quantities of both, with the design being the determining factor.
