I've got more Aloha than you can shake a stick at (and plenty of Aloha Shirts too). But TIKI shirts are harder to come by, here's the only 2 I have. I made a couple, but they don't count


Picked up this Rietveld shirt new on eBay. The design is cool but the shirt's made of plastic! The experts tell me sublimation printing is required for this level of detail and that only works on polyester. Hmmm


Got this one for $7 off the clearance rack at RiteAide in Coronado Island. The coolest thing about this shirt is that it's made of 100% cotton (that's important here in the desert)

That's MOSTLY true,Mike...
But recently, in the past year or so, we;ve been sublimating cotton /poly tees
for huge prints covering the whole garment...
The colors aren't as "punchy" as the pure polyester,
but the look our tees require a more "washed down/distressed" feel...

Why don't they count? If they're aloha shirts with tiki in the print - they count! The fact that you made them yourself is even better to my way of thinking - they're CUSTOM shirts, not off the rack!

Thank you Kiki Here's my experiment in Batik. The design I stole from a stencil. The contrasting stitching was not planned, I used a yellow 100% cotton shirt, not realizing that the stitching was polyester and wouldn't absorb the dye





Chlorox bleach pen and brown Sharpie on a khaki shirt, perfect to wear with a pith helmet.

I like this one (of many) because of the colors, especially the tikis...

Wow! Did you buy it new 12 years ago? Or is it even older? It reminds me of a brown and white 70s design I saw like 20 years ago, same amount of boobage, but more flowing line art-style. I always regretted not photographing it.

Wendy that shirt also came with the coveted zipper pull Tiki:



I have one...sans shirt though:




The owner deemed the whole ensemble suitable for framing:



..and I agree!

I found one like that on Ebay a couple years ago (same color looks darker in photo though). Love it, just selective where I wear it. Is there a pocket on the left side on yours?
