News Release #35 – Introducing our product #4 Classic Pineapple Aloha Shirt!
Kona Bay Hawaii x 111-HAWAII PROJECT
A classic reproduction of the 1950's Vintage Aloha Shirt.
For sale limited to only 444 items!
HONOLULU, Hawaii—November 20, 2015—The 111-HAWAII PROJECT has released their highly anticipated Product #4 – a classic reproduction of the 1950’s Vintage Aloha shirt, “Classic Pineapples”, completely made and produced in Hawaii.
The unfortunate truth is that most of the Aloha Shirts made today, are not made in Hawaii anymore. The only company that still produces them in the exact same method used back in the 50s—the heyday of aloha shirts creating a surge with many sewing factories producing them—has become “Kona Bay Hawaii” whom 111-HAWAII has collaborated with on this new project. Kona Bay Hawaii hopes to be able to, “pass on a truly authentic Aloha Shirt, a representing symbol of Hawaii to future generations!” so the Aloha Shirt was produced in the same material, same color scheme, and same production method as that in the original 1950’s.
This Classic Pineapple pattern was originated by a maker with the name of legendary surfer “DUKE KAHANAMOKU BY CISCO”. The shirt was worn by an actor in the movie “From Here to Eternity”, which dominated 8 categories of Academy Awards. Having been used in a movie that represented the 20th century, it is no exaggeration to say that this was the most famous design in the world.
For sale limited to 444 items! In the same color scheme of navy blue and white as the 50s.
