8 Movie Icons That Bossed The Hawaiian Shirt

Summer’s favourite item of clothing, the Hawaiian shirt, is as big a hit this year as ever. No matter how old you are (talking to you, dads), everyone owns at least one of these timeless shirts.

It may have torn the world’s style gurus in half, but we’re sticking around for it. We don’t mind whether you prefer to keep your shirt subtle or standout – a Hawaiian shirt is a Hawaiian shirt, and it deserves to be celebrated. So, without further ado, we’ve picked out 8 movie icons who have rocked the shirt throughout the decades.

Jason Segel – Forgetting Sarah Marshall, 2008

Love it or loathe it, Jason Segal simply couldn’t be better suited to a Hawaiian shirt in this classic of a film (tears or no tears).

Jim Carrey – Ace Ventura Pet Detective, 1994

What better man to support this crazy shirt trend? Dad or not, he’s made for it.

Vince Vaughn – Lay The Favorite, 2012

Vince Vaughn took a gamble with this attire. We reckon it paid off…



Patrick Swayze – Ghost, 1990

To be perfectly frank, there’s no man that wears a Hawaiian shirt better than Patrick Swayze did in Ghost. This one goes down in history. We salute you, sir.

Robert De Niro – Dirty Grandpa, 2016

We laughed from start to finish at De Niro’s performance in Dirty Grandpa, but you can’t deny it, the man knows how to pull off a Hawaiian shirt. SHABBA!



Beau Bridges – Free Willy – Escape From Pirate’s Cove, 2010

Freeing Willy never looked so good (and neither did Beau Bridges). It just goes to show that you can’t put an age on a solid Hawaiian shirt.

Owen Wilson – Hall Pass, 2011

Zoolander, Marley & Me and Wedding Crashers will go down in history, but Wilson in Hall Pass is heroic in its own right… that right being the Hawaiian shirt get-up.



Leonardo Dicaprio – Romeo And Juliet, 1996

The icon of old school Hawaiian shirts, Leo pulls this off like it’s his favourite old t-shirt. That being said, is there anything he can’t pull off?
