5 Cozy Tees From Hawai‘i That Will Make Everything Feel Better

How do you live your best life from home? Watch some couch concerts, (Chris Martin had us at “Yellow”) while noshing on comfort foods (Zippy’s chili is still available by drive-thru), in your fave soft tees. Don’t have the latter? Well, lucky you live Hawai‘i. Check out these soft, buttery basics from some of our beloved local brands.

Dolkii tees are the epitome of feel-good fashion. Its the silky-smooth styles and charming, wahine-minded logos (the new rainbow tata tee is already in our carts) are perfect for no-BRAddah-me kinds of weekends. Plus, for every item purchased, a donation will be made to the Women’s Fund of Hawai‘i, which gives to local nonprofits focused on women’s and girls’ health and well-being.

This Is Only Hemp-orary

Hemp isn’t only for the stoney-baloney crowd—a lot of brands are using the sustainable fabric in place of cotton, including Salvage Public. The modern surf brand that often communicates its aloha for the Hawaiian culture through its clothing recently launched a lineup of logo tees that are made of 100% hemp. We tried one on and the comfy, lightweight linen feel is perfect when you want to wear nothing but can’t because your neighbors are (now) always home.

Women love to steal their S.O.’s tees. But, with social distancing, there may be no swiping of any kind. Well, luckily, At Dawn has a super cozy selection of I-stole-my-boyfriend’s-shirt tees and pullovers that are perfect for loungin’ ladies. One of our faves? The thermal crewneck that flaunts an embroidered “be happy,” fittingly, right over the heart.



Jolly Rancher


A post shared by Western Aloha (@westernaloha) on


Okay, so this pick might not be a tee, but Western Aloha’s men’s aloha shirts are definitely worth sharing. Influenced by the hay-day of Hawai‘i’s paniolo, every shirt has hints of cowboy culture: pearl snaps, front and back shoulder yokes, and two front pockets with flaps. But, the big reason why this best western landed on this roundup is its thin, custom-made fabric that gets softer the more it’s worn.
