"Gecko Classic" HYPERFLASH and SUPER PUFFED Green to White Heat Activated Hyper Color Changing Shirt!
SUPER SECRET ONLY 80 Made! WE WILL SELL OUT QUICK!
This tee looks SO RAD when pushing the sleeves up too! It acts like a short sleeve shirt. This was a super 80s trend that looks great with these tees, because it gives the sleeves an amazing tie-dye effect, acts as a short sleeve, and really helps to create a classic 80s look.
About this version of the "Gecko Classic" tee:
We took our extremely iconic original logo and gave it a slightly updated clean look -- still 100% hand-drawn. The only difference is the thick black "sketchy" outline -- and we did that to make this shirt's puff ink go beyond "2X puff" to PURE SUPER PUFF. Everything about this tee is a combo of late 1980's to super early 90s. The graphic goes all the way across the back -- much like the old "Big Dog" / "B.U.M" Equipment tees used to do.
The New Classic secret tee has nearly everything you're looking for in a Gecko Tee -- the retro look and feel, the iconic gecko, the texture and color change that explodes every nostalgia synapse in the brain -- and they are SUPER LIMITED! There are 3 variants! Get 1 or Get them all... but do it fast Gecko Fam!
Over this past year (2020/21) Gecko has grown significantly (thanks to you!) So, we decided to bring back a "fan-fave" for a short time, so the new fans can have a chance to relive their own nostalgia, and the classic fans can retire their old version and have something just as rad -- but completely different!
3 Super ‘88 Neon -- the kind of neon that automatically makes your eyes stare at it like a moth to a flame, followed by your vision starts to blur, and you get the electricity buzzing in your brain -- and get put into a trance where a random rad memory about your childhood, the 80s, the 90s, Hawaii, beaches, or vacations.
Proudly dyed and printed in the USA
Gecko HYPERFLASH is a homage and retro flashback to the magical "thermochromatic" color-changing apparel of the early 1990's.
EXTREMELY LIMITED! Gecko HYPERFLASH ALWAYS SELLS OUT -- SOMETIMES SAME DAY!
SIZING - PLEASE READ!
How To Choose Your Fit & Size
For HYPERFLASH ThermoChromatic Tees
If you've tried both of our slim fit tees and our classic fit/pigment dyed tees -- the sizing of these is somewhere in between. The closest sizing would be the Hanes Beefy T -- although on the HYPERFLASH shirts, the cotton is a lighter cotton than a Beefy T-- it's about 5 OZ ringspun, combed cotton -- which is thicker than our slim beach tees, but thinner than our more heavy, pigment dyed and classic fit tees.
The reason why HyperFlash Thermochromatic sizing is slightly different than our normal tees, is due to the Thermochromatic dyes, which undergo a washing process. This actually eliminates about 95% of shrinkage prior to your purchase.
So, If you like a looser feel/fit, definitely go a size up. The shirts are normal in the shoulder areas (much like the Hanes Beefy T), but the "stomach" area is ever so slightly smaller from the washing process.
If you are taller, or have a bigger mid-section and like longer sleeves, we also recommend going a size up too. So if you are usually a medium, go with a large ---
However, if you like a normal/slightly slimmer/tighter fit around the arms and mid section -- go with your true to size.
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!
