Aloha Shirt 1382
Description:
This is the oldest shirt in the collection. It is an original silk vintage Aloha shirt by Ellery Chun from 1938. Chun was the first to mass produce the Aloha shirt and was the person who gave these wearable works of art their name - he copyrighted the term "Aloha Shirts" in 1936. This one is made from silk and has all of the hallmarks of his early productions. The black background is highly desirable among collectors and the rare print of malolo, or flying fish, adds to its collectibility. The size is not marked, but measures SMALL, in inches - Shoulders 17, Chest 20, Length 27 and Sleeves 9. Great condition for an 80 year old shirt. This one has been in my collection from the start and never shown or listed until now. The small size makes it ideal for framing.
