Gecko Hawaii's Limited Edition Happy Geckos Re-Issue

Happy Geckos ran from 1989 through 1992 and looking at it again transports us to a time when we were doodling in Trapper Keepers, inspired by Fillmore posters and watching Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" music video on MTV for the very first time!

We stepped deep into the Gecko Vault to find this design & reissue it for the first time in 30 YEARS!

This is a LIMITED EDITION release -- IT WILL SELL OUT -- so get it while we got it!

Gecko Hawaii X HYPERFLASH - Heat Activated Color Changing Tee!

EXTREMELY LIMITED! ONLY 80 AVAILABLE.   

This is a tee called "Happy Gecko" and it's one of the first tees that we have re-issued from the 1990s. 

It was hand-drawn by surfers over a few weeks... a little bit added to it each day.
To us, it looks like an awesome doodle that you would have found in a "Trapper Keeper" back in 1991 -- at the start of the grunge era.

Back then, you would be wearing this while watching the video for Nirvana's "Smell's Like Teen Spirit" -- or just finding out that Vanilla Ice's "Ice, Ice, Baby" was sampled from a song by the band Queen -- and trying to understand what a "sample" even was...
  • 100% Cotton!
  • INTENSE Neon!
  • Super Soft!
  • Classic Fit!
  • Puffed-Ink!
Please note: The color in these images may vary, because the shirt is so awesomely bright has contrasting colors, it makes it REALLY difficult for us to take the perfect photos with consistent lighting. The main photo is true to color, however it looks WAY COOLER in person!

Gecko HYPERFLASH is a homage and retro flashback to the magical "thermochromatic" color-changing apparel of the early 1990's.

Gecko Hawaii HYPERFLASH shirts are heat activated and change color around 80 degrees, which gives it a super rare, "living, breathing, tie dye" feeling. Think of it as "the mood ring" of t-shirts -- but WAAAAAY cooler!

Thermochromatic technology has improved dramatically since the 1990's, but most apparel companies don't make it, because they are afraid to take risks, and it is REALLY expensive to make. However, our fans kept asking since our relaunch, so we made it happen for this SUPER LIMITED collection!

 

Recommendations:

In order to treat the shirt with Thermochromatic pigment technology, the shirts go through a special washing process. They are accurate in sizing, but slightly -- just a tad -- smaller than our usual shirts.  If you are between sizes (in the tummy), we recommend going up a size.

This is a tee called "Happy Gecko" and it's one of the first tees that we have re-issued from the very end of the 80's -- and start of the 1990s. It ran from 1989 through 1992.
It was hand-drawn by surfers over a few weeks... a little bit added to it each day.
To us, it looks like an awesome doodle that you would have found in a "Trapper Keeper" -- or a Fillmore poster back in 1989 -- at the very start of the grunge era.

If you've ever tried our beach tees before, they are unisex, so they have a slightly slimmer fit. It actually fits great to size -- however, if you lean towards the next size up, we recommend getting the next size up and then shrinking them in the dryer for the perfect fit. If you tend to be on the smaller end of a size -- stick with your actual size.

Please note: The color in these images may vary, because the shirt is so awesomely bright has contrasting colors, it makes it REALLY difficult for us to take the perfect photos with consistent lighting. The main photo is true to color, however it looks WAY COOLER in person!

SIZING:

How To Choose Your Fit & Size

For HYPERFLASH ThermoChromatic Tees

If you've tried our slim fit tees and our classic fit/pigment dyed tees --  the sizing of these is somewhere in between. For the long sleeve shirts, If you like a looser feel/fit, definitely go a size up. If you are taller and like longer sleeves, we recommend you go a size up too. However, if you have shorter arms, or you like a normal/slightly slimmer fit -- go with your true to size.

The sizing of these are slightly different than our normal tees, because with the Thermochromatic dyes, they go through a washing process -- which eliminates 95% of shrinkage prior to purchase. 

RETURN OF THE RETRO 80S "Puff Ink" Front Pocket Logo!

Gecko Hawaii HYPERFLASH shirts are heat activated and change color around 80 degrees, which gives it a super rare, "living, breathing, tie dye" feeling. Think of it as "the mood ring" of t-shirts -- but WAAAAAY cooler!

Thermochromatic technology has improved dramatically since the 1990's, but most apparel companies don't make it, because they are afraid to take risks, and it is REALLY expensive to make. However, our fans kept asking since our relaunch, so we are making it happen again!

Congrats! And thank you SOOOOO Much For Filling out our Gecko Hawaii survey. It means a lot to us -- so that we can continue to make awesome products and fan favorites.
This version of "Happy Geckos" is currently ONLY available to YOU and the others that filled out the form.

AND IT'S ONLY AVAILABLE FOR 24 HOURS!
This is a tee called "Happy Gecko" and it's one of the first tees that we have re-issued from the 1990s. 
It was hand-drawn by surfers over a few weeks... a little bit added to it each day.
To us, it looks like an awesome doodle that you would have found in a "Trapper Keeper" back in 1991 -- at the start of the grunge era.

SPECIAL RELEASE DETAILS: 
We will be releasing other variants of Happy Geckos later this week -- some special ones to the Gecko Fam and Gecko List -- but THIS version on neon, with a slightly different puff-ink colorway will NOT be made available this week -- or possibly EVER!
This is your only chance to get it! We only made a few of these -- less than 100. However, if there is any leftover after today (which is not too likely, but it is possible) than we might release them on the site down the road in the secret section -- but not for at least a month... and honestly, we REALLY don't imagine that there will be much inventory left -- so get it while you can!
This Orange is SOOOO NEON! It's Rad! It's not like the "hazard" construction neon though, it's smoother, brighter, and a color that was so super 1980's that you won't find it in many places! 
  • 50% Cotton 50% Poly
