Gecko Hawaii SKU: GHHGBBT-S

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.
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...

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!
