Royal Hawaiian 1537

Royal Hawaiian 1537
Early 1950's vintage Aloha shirt by Royal Hawaiian. This shirt has an unusual print in an unusual bright color scheme - check out the use of orange. This shirt shows Hawaiian beach scenes with water skiiers being pulled by a boat with the Moana Surfrider Hotel and Diamond Head in the background. It also has a scene showing the beach in front of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel scattered with outrigger canoes and signature pink beach umbrellas. Another scene shows hula women entertaining on a beach. What makes this shirt extra special is the matching plackets - notice how the left and right side of the shirt align when buttoned. This was a coincidence as this manufacturer did not intentionally match plackets like some others did, like Palm Breeze shirts. It has a left chest pocket, bamboo buttons, neckloop and vertical button holes. Size not marked but measures Large, in inches - Shoulders 19, Chest 24, Length 29 and Sleeves 9. Mint condition - no defects.
