This shirt is special because it is offered in a rare color, brown, and it is offered in size XXL.
Originally produced in Hawaii in 1950 under the Waikiki Sports label, it is outfitted with a single invisible pocket, genuine urea buttons that precisely match those found on the original shirt, and a label that typifies the original designs of the era. This shirt features propeller-driven United Airlines airliners and the tourists they deposited in Hawaii, making it the perfect selection for anyone seeking a classic look from the “golden years” of Hawaiian shirts or in need of tourist print in a rare color.
Vintage Hawaiian shirts were typically made of high-quality rayon acetate, the formula for which was lost in a Dupont factory fire back in the 1950’s. This Sun Surf design is printed on high-quality rayon acetate that perfectly duplicates the hand and weight of the long-lost rayon of the “good old days.” Unquestionably, Sun Surf rayon is the most authentic in the vintage Hawaiian shirt industry today. Just as with the original fabric it copies, this material is extremely breathable and airy, and it takes the original screen printing inks as splendidly as did the vintage originals.
To help preserve the color and fabric, dry cleaning is the only laundering method endorsed by the manufacturer.
