We rarely post candid pictures of Alex with fans, because most of them lack a story behind them. For us it is always more interesting to hear the story of how the person met Alex and what happened with their encounter.
Whenever somebody shares that with us, it is our pleasure to do a post about it and bring you the story behind the pictures.
Two weeks ago we were debating the possible date of a certain picture of Alex and started talking about his favourite T-shirts. We also got a suggestion from Alex O’Loughlin’s Place, and we thought it might be interesting to compile a post of Alex wearing his favourite printed T-shirts, over the last few years. Of course, these pictures were mostly taken with fans and their random meeting with Alex.
We have given the T-shirts just some fun names from what we could see on them.
(We apologize for the quality of some of the pictures (many times the problem of quick random fan pictures). And please hover over it with your mouse or scroll through the gallery, for a better description of when and where it is from ( if we do have the info))
Power Plant – Motorcycles
This T-shirt has been seen since October last year and I guess we’ll see lots more of it.
Getting Lei’d by a Hawaiian Lady
We struggled for a long time to see what was actually on this t-shirt. Is there any specific Hawaiian story behind it? We have seen Alex wearing it since 2013 and it seems to be a favourite. It also looks like a good quality print, because the image on it still looks great (unless he’s got more than one of them 🙂 )
The Big Lebowski
This t-shirt we only saw in 2012. Would be interesting to know if Alex bought it himself, or was it a gift 🙂
“Caesar’s” skull 😀
Alex seems to like t-shirts with skull images. This one is one of at least 3 that I have seen him with. And that does not include the interesting one we see later in this post.
This one is blue and definitely one of the favourites since 2011 already, although we haven’t seen it anywhere this year.
Good advertising for Egan’s gym.
Alex mainly wore it in 2012 and 2013 it seems.
No 1 Success
This t-shirt really fascinated me – mainly because I struggled to see what it was about. And I am still not 100% sure :grin. Alex mainly wore it 2011 – 2012 we now realise that it was last seen in May 2013.
And at that stage, it looked like it started to fade a lot.
Working Class Hero
Love the wording on this t-shirt. Not sure why we haven’t seen more of it.

A man, in a skull, in the ocean 😀
Looks like this t-shirt has been around for a few years since 2010 but was last seen in 2013. The image on it fascinates me. I always thought it was a picture of a guy swimming in the ocean, until I realised on closer inspection, that it is also a picture of a skull.
Yes, it’s blue… so we had to add it. 🙂
A few different Muhammed Ali T-shirts
It looks like there is a special affinity for Muhammed Ali t-shirt for Alex.
A Fan story:
Lynne on Instagram:
So lucky to run into Alex O’Loughlin, shame i lost the ability to speak!! #H50 #Alex O’Loughlin. Stumbled upon Malia’s swimwear launch in Hale’iwa sat 11th my son spotted him, he seems like a real genuine guy!
Lynne’s comment on our Facebook:
Doing a spot of shopping and my 9yr old son says, Mum that looks like Steve McGarrett, after a week of my Dad and Husband joking and saying hey isn’t that……?? I said yeah, yeah turned around and … It was, husband went over asked if he would mind if we got a photo, he was so lovely, I was too stunned to say anything coherant, he had his family with him and Dusty, still can’t believe we managed to meet him, even hubby was impressed!
We compiled this fan story from Lynne’s IG post & comments from her there and on our own Facebook. Please feel free to send us your story of meeting Alex – we would love to share it.
And now it seems that Alex got a new favourite T
Only Good Vibes
The first time we saw Alex with this t-shirt was earlier in April at the start of this hiatus. It was posted by the shop where his wife Malia’s swimwear launch was held later that month. I think he bought it at the store (or maybe they gave it to him to promote their store). And now we saw him wear it at Chef Morimoto’s 60th birthday party on 24 May.
(And it is blue 😀 )
I have a feeling we will see a lot more of it. 😀
Do you think he is trying to give us a message here? 😉
