Vintage Hawai'i │ Vintage '50s '60s Hawaiian Shirts

The west coast of America, which would be all of California, Oregon, and Washington (and Alaska) find ways to get somewhere tropical. It's a must.

That someplace tropical means the Hawaiian Islands. 

The aloha life.

Island time living.

I sell a lot of vintage Hawaiian dresses, shirts, and skirts. And the best ones are from the 1940s through the 1960s. (In my humble opinion).

After decades of selling their wonderful clothing to us folks from the mainland, guess who's buying back their merchandise?


Most vintage Hawaiian dresses and shirts I sell - nine times out of ten - go straight to the islands. I love it. I think it's wonderful they're getting their vintage textiles back to the islands. 

These vintage pieces are beautiful.

They're also different. And by different, I mean better. The quality and craftsmanship of vintage Hawaiian clothing is, like all things vintage compared to new clothing, night and day. And for islanders who wear Hawaiian clothing daily, why not find the stuff most people aren't wearing?

Why not stand out and look amazing at the same time?

I understand this well. Be different. Wear vintage.

I just listed this beautiful '70s barkcloth shirt, and this vintage Hawaiian-style '50s shirt by Pilgrim (made in California).

One is made in Hawaii, the other in California. 

Both are beautiful.

I just sold (two hours ago) a vintage Hawaiian dress and it’s headed to Kailua, Hawai’i. Mahalo, Hawai’i!

I have other Hawaiian merchandise regularly stocked throughout the year
