The Floral Shirt, also colloquially known as Hawaiian Shirt, is a craftable Dress item from the Reign of Giants DLC. It requires 3 Papyrus, 3 Silk, and 5 Cactus Flowers to craft and an Alchemy Engine to prototype. It restores 3.3 Sanity/min and provides 240 points of protection from Overheating while worn.
The Floral Shirt spoils after 15 days similarly to the Fashion Melon and the Garland instead of losing durability as it's worn, thus it cannot be repaired with a Sewing Kit. Storing it inside an Insulated Pack or Snow Chester will slow its spoilage rate.
Since the item requires Cactus Flowers to be crafted, it cannot be crafted until the first Summer. Unfortunately, it only lasts for 12 days after that, due to the 25% faster spoilage during Summer.
Shipwrecked[edit | edit source]
The Floral Shirt is also included in the Shipwrecked DLC, where it is helpful against Overheating during the Dry Season. It requires 5 Petals to craft instead of 5 Cactus Flowers, as Cacti are not present in the Shipwrecked world.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Floral Shirt used to be crafted using Petals, Silk, and Butterfly Wings, and it wasn't as effective against heat.
- Even though it requires a Cactus Flower to craft (suggesting that is the flower on the shirt), typical "Hawaiian" shirts depict the Hibiscus, the Hawaiian state flower.
