Complete Custom Hawaiian Shirt Options, Part Three: Sizes

You’re almost there!

Whew, creating a custom Hawaiian shirt is hard work but also a lot of fun! Part One and Part Two covered the biggest steps, and now there is just one more decision: choosing your sizing.


Sizing Types 

We offer four adult sizing options and a youth option for all the little ones! You can choose to stick with one size option to make group size selection simpler, but offering multiple sizes for your custom shirts is also possible.

Please note that women’s sizing, especially the women’s small and medium, does run small.  We recommend you may want to go up a size or two for the women’s sizes, or use the men’s/unisex sizing instead.  Our standard men’s/unisex sizing is designed for a looser fit like a traditional Hawaiian shirt.  Men’s slim fit is more tailored and fitted.

If you’re unsure what sizes to order, generally the breakdowns are roughly 10% S, 20% M, 30% L, 35% XL, and 5% 2XL.  This can vary and you can adjust as necessary, but we tend to see this a lot.

Measurements and Size Charts

We provide size charts for all of our Hawaiian shirt styles so you can order the best fit. Our charts are based on garment measurement, and the most important measurement is the “½ chest across” – this is how wide the shirt is when laid flat, from armpit to armpit. You can approach measuring in two ways: one, by measuring a favorite garment from armpit to armpit and choosing the size that best correlates to that measurement. If you are using body measurements, it is important to account for ease, otherwise known as an extra bit of fabric to provide a comfortable fit! For example, if the wearer’s chest measurement is 23 inches, they can wear a Unisex Medium but a Unisex Large would provide better ease and comfort.
