This is the FIRST EVER glow in the dark edition of "Hang Loose" -- or of ANY Gecko Hawaii shirt... EVER! We released the first batch of this classic as GITD in early June and it sold out in 48 hours! We decided to give it another go.. but it may not last long, so get it while you can! (Or buy a back-up if you got it the first time around!)
The perfect fit, super breathable — a fantastic shirt that helps make men’s arms look stronger, and women’s arms look smaller.
Gecko Hawaii art on white t-shirts really takes the “pop” of neon colors to the next level! They are also great for tie-dye experiments as they absorb the dye extremely well.
(Here is a little “Easter Egg” a.k.a hidden secret for you too...
This white version of “Hang Loose“ ALSO Glows In The Dark for a limited time! We only printed 300 white GITD Hang Loose shirts — and this may be our last batch of white GITD for a long while. We originally only let a few close “Gecko Friends” know about it via email, but now we are “soft releasing” what’s left of those. So, if you’re lucky enough to be reading this description, it means there are still some available! Please note: Now that we are “taking it public” — and letting the world know that the white Hang Loose t-shirt also glows — we will probably be sold out within a few days. It just depends on how many people actually take the time to read this!

Gecko Hawaii teamed up with one of long time artists to bring back one of the most popular requests since our relaunch!
We worked with Dennis back in the late 80s & 90s — and he created hundreds of thousands of Gecko Hawaii Splatter tees. Since then, Dennis has worked with every brand in the book, from brands like OP and Bugle Boy in the 80’s to Yeezy and Supreme today.
The Look, The Feel, The History of Gecko's Splatter:
Our neon green, pink, white, blue and black splatter was different than other contemporary’s at the time because although we used neon —it was much more subtle — using super small — yet evenly dispersed paint specks all over the shirt. At the time (and still today), most splatter shirts consisted of either one color, multi-color with huge streaks and splashes. That can look cool, but it can also be hard to pull off and can look too busy. We wanted to release something that had a “pop” and was rad — but was strong and subtle. By using the “speckle/splash” technique,it gave the shirt a look as though it was almost part of the fabric itself.
If you still happen to own of the early splatter shirts, you’d notice that the paint had a lot more texture to it. As time went on, with larger mass production, the addition of graphics, and new types of paint — the splatter was flattened in the “flashing” process. However, our goal for the first Splatter shirts, hoodie, jogger re-release was to re-create that first ever splatter shirt we made. It is fully equipped with the original texturized splatter from the late 80’s early 90’s (check out the video, we even used some of the VERY SAME paint from back then!). with a simple pocket logo. This required us to splatter by hand — not by graphic design or digital printer.You can feel the quality and it is AWESOME. As far as we know, there is nothing else out there like it today.
