The Nostalgic 1980's Era of
"T-Shirts Gone Wild."
There was a period from 1986 through 1988, where graphics & funny slogans were pushed to the limits.
When Crazy Shirts actually had crazy shirts.
And It was during this time where brands from the Islands -- like Gecko Hawaii, LocoMotion and T&C washed ashore the mainland, became adopted by the cool kids and quickly spread a bad-ass, colorful, 80's neon-party, Aloha vibe throughout the states.
Maybe it was the soul of the artists captured in the hand-drawn art (before computers), or the totally rad colors (before digital printers dulled it down) -- or the memorable logos & brand characters (that sometimes felt like comics)-- but whatever it was -- something about this style helped to make the mid/late 1980's feel like our last endless summer.
This is one of our Tees From the era...
Using our original retro printing methods, we created a Double Puffed Ink version of this 1987 classic, authentic & EXTRA retro puffy 80's graphic!
