FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME...
 
GECKO'S BRAND-NEW, LIMITED-EDITION DESIGN!
USING ELEMENTS FROM OUR 1980's and 1990's TEES, WE CREATED THIS DESIGN FOR THE 2024 DEL MAR SUMMER FAIR. 

THE GOAL WAS TO MAKE IT LOOK LATE 80's/ EARLY 90's CALIFORNIA BEACH STYLE!

THE FAIR VERSIONS SAYS "SAN DIEGO" ON IT, BUT WE LIKED IT SO MUCH, WE MADE A LIMITED BATCH WITHOUT "SAN DIEGO" -- AND PRINTED IT ON A GLOW IN THE DARK, HAND-SPLATTERED BLACK, 100% COTTON, GECKO BEACH TANK! 
 
  • Original Artwork & Hand Drawn Elements From 1980's and 90's Gecko Tees! 
  • Design features Glow in the dark green & pink Retro Puffed-Ink!
  • Splattered By Hand! Every TANK is unique!
  • GLOW IN THE DARK SPLATTER PAINT!
  • Printed on a Gecko Beach Tank!
  • The Design is large on THE BACK side -- and a very small "pocket logo" on the front side -- Just like we did back in the 1980's!
  • Black tank with Glow In The Dark splatter looks sooooo authentically 1980's! 
  • Unisex

"Saved By The Gecko" looks great with anything! And the glow is insane! It looks like a "black hole" or "retro galaxy" in the dark!

Designed With Puff-Ink 3D Texture (That's What Made 80s/90s Shirts So RAD!)
that will age/crack with wear, for a one of a kind/personalized vintage look!
A very light and extremely soft cotton!

It pairs perfectly with solid black shorts, solid neon shorts -- but REALLY POPS OUT -- when you rock it with ANY COLOR ACID WASH DENIM (especially black acid wash, grey acid wash, and light blue denim acid wash pants, or shorts!)

Why is it that so many "modern" shirts/tanks today can't truly recreate that much sought after, summer, retro 80's & 90's, laid back & nostalgic beach vacation feel? It's something that can be EXTREMELY HARD to put your finger on -- but Gecko gets it -- and it's how we are able to make it stand apart from anything else out there. It comes down to 2 major secret components that are a part of Gecko's DNA:

1. Using the original retro processes to recreate the apparel and paying close attention to the smallest details.

2. Using actual humans that care instead of digital machines that save money.

These are core to Gecko's DNA -- And 2 components that we believe can make or break the nostalgic vibe of a tee. 

Nowadays -- even when people are trying to re-issue old, retro tees, they completely miss the mark -- and you can tell that the tee "has no soul." They don't realize that in order to fully bring back that feeling, it starts with the original PROCESS -- which (in our case) uses REAL PEOPLE -- as you can't get the same look and feel using a computer graphic and digital printer. It takes REAL HUMANS to make sure the details are on point. And real humans means skilled labor, which costs money -- and unfortunately, most companies are only thinking about the bottom line -- and not the end experience the product is going to have on the customer. 

Gecko's theory is that with REAL HUMANS working on each piece of the artistic process, from splattering, to mixing ink colors, to analog printing, to labeling, -- the creator of each part of the process shares a little bit of their soul and care with the apparel they are creating. In our opinion, this creates a far superior, happier-feeling, more nostalgic and authentic 1980's & 90's experience -- which can't be duplicated by a simple "print on demand," automated production.
