Description:
This is 1950's vintage long sleeve Aloha shirt was made by Alfred Shaheen. The name of this print is "PUA LANI PAREAU" and was handprinted by the Master himself. Chocolate brown with the classic pareau print flowers in white. It has a left chest pocket, coconut shell buttons, neckloop and horizontal button holes. Size marked Extra Large, measures in inches - Shoulders 20, Chest 27, Length 31 and Sleeves 25. Excellent condition with light splash marks on the lower edge and end of the sleeves.

"My favorite design is the Pua Lani Pareau. Like the Tiare Tapa, the Pua Lani Pareau has been reproduced indiscriminately by clothing manufacturers for decades. Although a contemporary Hawaiian shirt company has renamed the print and uses it as its signature print, the Pua Lani Pareau will always be an Alfred Shaheen original. The Pua Lani Pareau is the most famous Hawaiian print in history -- it is synonymous with the Hawaiian mystique and a visual representation of Hawaii throughout the world." - Camille Shaheen (daughter of Alfred Shaheen) 2010, GlamourSplash
