Format: Hardcover
It's about time that someone finally did real research into Hawaiian clothing, including the aloha shirt. This book is historically accurate. Much of what has previously been published is erroneous. What most of the world knows about Hawaiian clothing comes from the use of aloha shirts after WW2. While our beautiful environment stimulated the production of bold and beautiful textiles, these were used in more than just shirts. Arthur covers womens' wear as well, and presents hundreds of beautiful pictures along with an interesting to read description of the history and culture of Hawaii. Aloha attire is more complicated than many would understand. This book covers the clothing that has been produced in, and worn by people in Hawaii in the 19th and 20th century. Truly a wonderful book!

This book has great color photos which is what I like in a book. I look at the photos first and then go back and read it. The information is comprehensive and very interesting. A super reference book to have if you like Hawaiian attire.

The book offers a good introduction to the origins of aloha-wear and provides wonderful examples of designs through the decades. As a collector, I am always looking for resources that will help me understand the items that I have and to become a more discerning buyer. I bought this book hoping for a more in depth history of the garment industry in Hawaii and was somewhat disappointed that it was more picture focused than educational. I would recommend this for anyone who has more than a passing curiosity about aloha wear, as it does provide good context.
