1940s/50s TRUE HAWAIIAN SHIRT - SURF N SAND - SHAHEEN?
THIS IS A WONDERFUL USED, VINTAGE 1950s HAWAIIAN SHIRT SPORTING 2-TONE BROWN TAPA DESIGN. APPEARS TO BE 100% COTTON.  THE EMBROIDERED COLLAR TAG READS -   SURF N SAND, MADE IN HONOLULU, HAWAII.  REVERSE OF TAG READS - DISTINCTIVE SPORTSWEAR FOR DISCRIMINATING PEOPLE , MADE IN HAWAII. THE MASTER DESIGNER - ALFRED SHAHEEN - WORKED UNDER THIS LABEL IN THE 1950s (MAYBE EARLIER?), SO IT IS VERY POSSIBLE THIS IS HIS DESIGN. THERE IS NO SIZE TAG BUT IS APPROX. 23" ACROSS THE FRONT FROM ARMPIT TO ARMPIT, APPROX. 18" ALONG THE SEAM FROM THE ARMPIT TO THE BOTTOM SCOOP HEM, AND APPROX. 14" FROM THE TOP OF THE SHOULDER SEAM TO THE END OF THE CUFFED-UP SLEEVE (APPEARS TO BE A 3/4 SLEEVE). HAS A LEFT BREAST POCKET, 5/8" COCONUT BUTTONS, DOUBLE STITCHING AROUND THE SHOULDER AND DOWN THE SIDE SEAMS, AND IS SCOOPED UP AT THE BOTTOM SIDE HEMS. TO ME, THIS LOOKS TO BE A WOMAN'S SHIRT, BUT I AM NO EXPERT, LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK. (I BET IT LOOKED REALLY GREAT WITH A PAIR OF WHITE CAPRI PANTS !!).  CONDITION - THE VERY BOTTOM BUTTON IS MISSING, BUT THE TOP COLLAR BUTTON CAN EASILY BE RELOCATED; THERE ARE A COUPLE OF SMALL STAINS (ONE AT THE 4th BUTTON AND ALSO CLOSE TO THE FRONT BOTTOM), BUT TO ME, ARE NOT DISTRACTING AND I HAVE NOT TRIED TO LAUNDER (SEE PHOTOS). OTHERWISE, A VERY UNIQUE CLASSIC SHIRT IN GOOD CONDITION FOR ITS AGE.  AGAIN, I AM NO EXPERT, SO PLEASE ASK IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS. WE HAVE OTHER AUTHENTIC HAWAII-MADE APPAREL, SO PLEASE CHECK OUT OUR OTHER LISTINGS. THANKS !!
