This 1980s Hawaiian Aloha shirt made by Evergreen Island is made from a very lightweight polyester fabric that shows iconic scenes in brilliant colors. The background material is a rich deep turquoise. Included in the colorful print are coral pineapples, yellow bananas, traditional Hawaiian sailing vessels, steam ships, palm trees with coral colored coconuts and large hibiscus blossoms also in shades of coral complete with a ukulele in the center of the blooms. Finally, iconic Iolani Palace is in the detailed print and a statue of King Kamehameha, one of the great rulers of Hawaii, who by the way was supposedly over 7ft. tall.
This great Aloha shirt has a notch collar and closes at the front with 5 round white plastic faux Mother of Pearl buttons. The sleeves are short and there is a breast pocket on the upper right side. There’s a yoke on the upper back of the shirt with a pleat on each side. All inner seams are well finished with an overlocking edge. No raw edges are visible.
Condition: Very Good
This shirt has one issue that was definitely due to a sewing mistake when the shirt was made. Somehow, the person who did the sewing forgot to make a buttonhole! Yes, the third button at the front of the shirt is there, but there is no buttonhole. At first, I didn’t notice this, but when I went to button the shirt, I quickly realized this was the case. The good thing is that it really isn’t that noticeable unless you are looking for it. Otherwise this shirt is in wonderful condition with no fading or soiling. This shirt can easily be machine washed on gentle or hand washed in cold water and will come out absolutely fine. I used the machine on hand wash in cold water and air dry. Doesn’t need to be ironed either. Quite easy to care for this nice shirt.
Label: Evergreen Island
The fabric content and care label cannot be read and I’m sure this has happened over the course of a number of washings.
