A wardrobe staple of John Wayne, Elvis Presley, and Bing Crosby, no 1950s Levittown luau or '60s surf party was complete without an aloha shirt. It’s a reminder of the pleasures of the tropical paradise lifestyle and its fabric patterns have evolved into their own works of art. A retrospective look at one of America’s most iconic cultural symbols of island life and its decades-long presence in mainstream fashion around the globe, The Art of the Aloha Shirt is a beautifully illustrated book that tells the complete story of the aloha shirt, from its origins in Hawaii in the early 1930s to its present status as a must-have in the retro fashion closets across the globe. It includes rare photos of vintage aloha shirts and island-inspired accoutrements of island lifestyle from surfboards to cocktail shakers.
