Gecko Surf Camp 1988 Re-Issue!
We wanted the Gecko Surf Camp re-issue to do two things:
- Bring back the nostalgic look & feel of going to a summer camp in the 1980s.
- Be a shirt like none other in our collection.
It looked so good on everything we were sampling — that we went a little crazy with the variants — almost everything here is limited.
This version is on our original Beefy T -- 100% Cotton Grape Smash. A Deep Dark Purple.
A little secret that not many people know...
When looking at vintage Gecko Hawaii shirts, some shirts have the "Beefy Tee" tag in them, while some have the Gecko Hawaii tag in them. Many times the ones with the "Beefy Tee" Tag actually got confused as bootlegs by people online -- but the truth is that if a Gecko Shirt has the "Beefy T" tag, in it, that means that in the 80s it was a shirt that came directly from Hawaii. If it had a Gecko Hawaii tag, than it was purchased on the mainland!
We will eventually put this design on the site, but not as the Beefy T, it will be on our normal soft ringspun cotton shirts -- but if you like this one, please let us know and we can do other releases from time to time with it!
ABOUT THE COLORS
The way the design POPS with color in real life is totally amazing. These images don't even capture the richness and super serious 80s factor of these shirts. The feeling that you'll get when you open the package of these awesome relics will overwhelm you... it really is hard to find rad shirts in these colors nowadays. Prepare for people to stop you and comment on your shirt throughout your day.
