"After spending a good portion of my life living and working in Hawaii, I always look back at the casual style and Aloha attitude with a smile. There is not another state in America where an untucked flower shirt and slippers are considered accepted work attire. That's why I was excited when I received a handmade Aloha shirt from Wave Shoppe, a grassroots operation out of San Diego, California.

Solid Construction with Sweet Surf Style! The shirt I received is a handmade polyester button up shirt packed with genuine Hawaiian style patterns and created in the image of the classic Hawaiian Aloha casual/work shirt, boasting real coconut buttons. This shirt is brimming with surf style, and I found the construction to be solid and comfortable without a hint of that Wal-Mart mass-production cookie cutter look. This is the real Hawaiian deal but without the real Hawaiian price. According to the Wave Shoppe website, they utilize polyesters, cottons; microfiber, rayon and poly/cotton blends, and some of their seamstresses have over 25 years of experience making Hawaiian shirts.

I found the prices at Wave Shoppe to be much lower than their overseas competitors; in fact, their prices are around 40% lower than their Hawaiian counterparts and higher in quality than the imports from India and China.

The bottom line is that these shirts are handmade in America using quality products."


"Charles, thanks so much for your help on my recent purchase of two shirts. Your exceptional service will keep me coming back to Wave Shoppe for my Aloha Shirts. I got the shirts in time to support my recent travels and really appreciate anything you did to make that happen. Again thx for everything, yours is an exceptional company to deal with.

Jim is taking us on a seven day cruise to the Western Caribbean for an anniversary present and we're taking our shirts. They fit well and looked just fantastic! The shirts can be worn by all ages!

Take care of yourselves. Again, thank you.

"The shirt was awesome and my husband loved it for Fathers Day. Thanks guys for reminding us of our last 50+ years living in Southern California. That shirt, believe it or not brought back so many memories. Cruising down the Pacific Coast Highway on Sunday mornings with the top down, smelling the sea air, stopping to watch the surfers at Swamis and getting coffee at the beach in Cardiff. Thanks for reminding us what its really all about. C.C, Camp Verde, Arizona"

"Totally WOW! I am so tired of sewing muumuus but that is all my Mom wants for Birthdays, Christmas, Mothers Day and Just Because Days since we lived on Oahu some 40 years ago. Then I found your website which I am passing along to her so that she can order her own muumuus. She can only wear a couple of your styles but she can change the fabric. She is a great Mom. She is 78 years old and she deserves to have what she wants.

Thanks People,

Barbara B

PS: Your service is great and shipping is reasonable."
