Hawaiian Shirt Heroes: Eric’s monthly round up – February


Hawaiian shirt heroes, wherever you are, welcome to my monthly round-up of Hawaiian shirt shenanigans. From the truly inspired to the downright ridiculous, this blog is dedicated to you and your love of all shirts Hawaiian. Enjoy!

– Eric (the Lizard)

So, February…

The month when the world is split into hopeless romantics and resolute Valentine’s day Grinches. For Hawaiian shirt heroes however, it’s been about loving everybody and having loads of fun. From epic stag dos to supporting great causes, here’s what you guys have been up to.


Painting the town red.

Celebrating doesn’t get more epic than having a Hawaiian shirt themed paintball battle for your stag do. These guys seem to have had the time of their lives at Asylum Paintball on this mid-February paintball adventure. I’m 100% sure this won’t be the groom-to-be’s last Hawaiian outing with these guys.

Print mixing for the beach.

If you’re ever unsure of how you feel about print mixing, I’ll give you a reason to love it like Hannah Wiesenhofer, self proclaimed desert dweller, pibble mommy and happy wife of Tommy Gort does: let me present to you the ultimate tourist outfit featured in the coolest husband appreciation post I’ve ever seen.

Aloha, parents.

Speaking of love – there’s nothing quite like the love and support of your parents. Introducing…Mr. and Mrs. Dodge from New Zealand who took on the #rainbowpinup challenge in support of their daughter, her girlfriend and everyone else in the LGBT+ community. These matching outfits are proof of two things: they’re the kind of parents anyone would wish for and Mrs. Dodge has some amazing fashion design skills.

Time to show off those comedian shirts.

How about some weeknight laughs with the guys from Laugh Sabbath? These guys sure know how to put on a show and their outfits look the part. You know what the the best thing about Hawaiian shirts is? They scream ‘having fun’ with their outstanding colours and patterns, so it’s just natural comedians would show up on stage rocking them. Definitely buying myself tickets for the next show!

Bottoms up!

Moving on to another comedian – this time Scott Martin made the list with his right arm, not his shows. He made sure to express his love for Hawaiian shirts and surfing through this original tattoo of a surfer meerkat. Now I’m really tempted to replicate this awesome ink job for my next tattoo.

Well that’s it for this month, guys. The next round-up will be out on Friday 5th April. Can’t wait to report back on what you lovely folks get up to in March.

And don’t forget, if you’ve got a story you’d like me to feature – just let me know!


Until then, heroes… keep it Hawaiian!
