Description
 
Tells the colorful stories behind these marvelous Hawaiian shirts: as cultural icons, evocative of the mystery and the allure of the Islands; as collectibles, valued by professional collectors and by vacationers and servicemen; and as a lifestyle -- casual, relaxed, and fun. This book evokes the world of the Golden Age of the Aloha shirt (from the 30s through the 50s), who created the industry and nurtured it from its single-sewing-machine-shop beginnings to an enterprise of international scope. Here are the fun-loving 60s; interviews with collectors who preserve these shirts as fine works of art; and insights into the roles of coconut buttons, matched pockets, woven labels, and exotic fabrics in the evolution of the Aloha shirt. 700+ full-color images. Oversize.
