Any cognate with Spanish camisa?

Appears so. They are probably loanwards from Arabic. Cf. Arabic for shirt, قميص (qamis).

No -- he has a shirt.

Did Duolingo show you "He's a shirt"? It sometimes automatically contracts has to 's whether it makes sense (He has given me the book already = He's given me the book already) or not (He has a cat =? He's a cat).
