Shaheen\'s 1668
Description:
THE "Tiare Tapa" print in red by the Master Printer, Alfred Shaheen. Yes, this is the one that you have been waiting for - THE MOST collectible print of any Alfred Shaheen shirt in the world. Why? This print was worn by Elvis during the photo shoot for the cover of the BLUE HAWAII album in 1961. You are not a true vintage aloha shirt collector unless you have an original Shaheen RED TIARE TAPA in the closet. I have watched these originals sell on Kalakaua Ave. in Waikiki to Japanese collectors for over $2500. I haven't had one in years and this is my only one in RED. It has a perfectly matched left chest pocket, metal lauhala weave buttons, neckloop and horizontal button holes. Size marked MEDIUM, measuring in inches - Shoulders 18, Chest 23, Length 31 and Sleeves 9. Perfect MINT condition - no defects. Includes a vintage silver print B&W picture of Elvis wearing a similar shirt playing the bongos during the BLUE HAWAII promotional photo shoot.
