9780500283677: The Aloha Shirt: Spirit of the Islands

Beautifully illustrated with more than 700 images, The Aloha Shirt: Spirit of the Islands tells the colourful stories behind the marvellous Hawaiian shirts: as cultural icons, evocative of the mystery and the allure of the Islands; as collectibles, valued by professional collectors and by the millions of tourists who still cherish the shirts hanging in their wardrobes; and as a lifestyle - casual, relaxed and fun. Drawing from hundreds of interviews, newspaper and magazine archives, and personal memorabilia, the author evokes the world of the designers, seamstresses, manufacturers and retailers of the Golden Age of the Aloha shirt (from the 1930s to the end of the 1950s), who created the industry and nurtured it from its single-sewing-machine shop beginnings to an enterprise of international scope and importance. Here are the fun-loving 1960s; interviews with collectors who preserve these shirts as fine works of art; and insights into the roles of coconut buttons, matched pockets, woven labels and exotic fabrics in the evolution of the Aloha shirt.

From the Publisher :

This book has been the most fun and interesting project I have worked on in years. Author Dale Hope is so passionate about this subject that he spent literally 10 years to put it together. Dale personally tracked down and interviewed hundreds of the "pioneers" of this industry who are disapearing after 60 plus years in the business. Its fabulous that Dale took the time to do this because it would have been lost had he not. Mahalo (thank you) Dale.

There is a special feeling that people have for Hawaii and all things Hawaiian. The Aloha Shirt book seems to connect people to that feeling in a very lovely way. Check the book out, you won't be disapointed!

From the Inside Flap :

Beautifully illustrated with more than 700 images, The Aloha Shirt: Spirit of the Islands tells the colorful stories behind these marvelous Hawaiian shirts: as cultural icons, evocative of the mystery and the allure of the Islands; as collectibles, valued by professional collectors, and by the millions of vacationers and servicemen who still cherish the shirts hanging in their closets; and as a lifestyle—casual, relaxed, and fun.

Drawing from hundreds of interviews, newspaper and magazine archives, and personal memorabilia, the author evokes the world of the designers, seamstresses, manufacturers, and retailers of the Golden Age of the Aloha shirt (from the ’30s through the ’50s), who created the industry and nurtured it from its single-sewing-machine shop beginnings to an enterprise of international scope and importance. Here are the fun-loving ’60s; interviews with collectors, who preserve these shirts as fine works of art; and insights into the roles of coconut buttons, matched pockets, woven labels, and exotic fabrics in the evolution of the Aloha shirt.

Welcome to this rich collection of stories about a unique time and place—folk histories of the many people who brought Aloha shirts to life, celebrations of the romance and beauty of Hawaii, and the wonderful stories told by the shirts themselves.
