 The Original 1986 Classic: Gecko Brothers in a HYPERFLASH Mango to "Cool White" Tee! -- Cool white is a white that looks like a very light blue in certain lights.

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

In 1986, Super Mario wasn’t the only team of BROS that were popular AF.

It was the year The Gecko Bros hit the scene.

In fact, some of you may have actually worn an OG Gecko Bros shirt while playing the OG Super Mario Bros for the very first time!

A little info on "Gecko Brothers"

Simply Nostalgic: One rad factor about this tee is it’s nostalgic simplicity. The OG design originally sold over 500,000 units — so if it’s the “iconically” retro, authentically nostalgic style tees that you crave— Gecko Bros is a perfect fit. Since so many people owned it — It’s  a tee that tons of people will recognize — which will get you that “Woah! I remember Gecko Hawaii!” factor you’re looking for.

Simply Classic: Since Gecko Brothers was intended to be a spinoff clothing line of Gecko Hawaii— we had designed the original flagship shirt to be as simple and poignant as Hang Loose. This is why —in 1986 —we released the very first Gecko Bros design using Gecko Hawaii’s bare bones brand colorway: Neon green, neon pink & neon blue — printed on a classic black tee.

Simply Neon - Back In the 80s, the simplicity of the Gecko Bros colorway enabled us to experiment with a ton of totally rad neon colored shirts — which is why we wanted to bring this tee back in Phase 2 of our relaunch — to help us re-introduce some of our (now retro) neon tees into the “modern classics” collection.

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. 

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!
