Are your products really Made in Hawaii?
Yes we take pride in our Aloha shirts, we started Kona Bay with the mission to craft Aloha shirts the way they were originally made - Bringing high quality Japanese rayon fabric and manufacturing locally on the islands of Hawaii. Sadly many other labels no longer do this and make their shirts outside of Hawaii. When you buys a Kona Bay shirt, you are buying a slice of Hawaiian culture and supporting a local Hawaiian business.
What is the sizing and fit like on your Aloha shirts?
We make our shirts to a classic aloha shirt proportion, they are designed to be worn in a relaxed fit. If you want a more fitted look you might want to go a size down from your regular size. To be sure about sizing, please see the measurements below and compare them to one of your favorite shirts you own.
IN | CM
|Size||SHOULDER (IN)||CHEST (IN)|
Some of these designs look familiar…
Many of our designs are based on classic prints from the ‘golden era of the Hawaiian shirt’ where we accurately recreate out-of-copyright designs. We take the designs from KC’s personal vintage collection and restore colors to what they would have originally looked like when they were new. This way you can wear a vintage aloha shirt design as a new and accurate reproduction.
