The Aloha Shirt: Spirit of the Islands (Hardcover)


Dale Hope

Written by Dale Hope, a man passionate about the history and design of Hawaiian shirts, The Aloha Shirt: Spirit of the Islands contains rich knowledge and insight into archival styles, the origins of designs and the impact the shirts have had upon society, culture and fashion. Across 384 pages, informative text is enhanced by high quality original images and a foreword written by iconic American surfer Gerry Lopez, who like Hope is also a native of the Hawaiian islands. Ideal for anyone with an interest in surf history, clothing and textile design, fine details are explored including hand drawn prints, buttons and labels.

Measuring to 7.5” x 11” and presented across 100% recycled paper and bound between a textural hardcover design, this edition has been completely revised, updated and redesigned with new content and photographs throughout. Raised by parents who bought a small garment factory in Hawaii, Dale Hope has dedicated his life to sharing the history and his knowledge of the island’s native shirt designs.
