The Tahiti Bar, Miami FL:



Phew! That's enough for one day.

Another shirt for the Tahiti Club, this one from an earlier matchbook:



I scored some great matchbooks today, so some new designs will be coming soon.

A few more: Two Outriggers (Billingsley's and Mark Thomas's), the iconic Hawaiian Cottage in New Jersey, and finally, The Luau.












I have a couple fantastic matchbooks for Tonga Room and Trader Vic's, but I imagine the chances of getting permission to use them are nil.

A couple things to note:

1) If anyone has a defunct tiki location they'd like turned into a shirt please let me know and I'll look for it. Alternatively, if you have a matchbook that you'd like to see on a shirt contact me and I can see about making it happen.

2) I received one of these shirts a few weeks ago and wanted to see how they wear. The shirt was quite soft to start and has only gotten softer with washings. The design (Tiki Bob on dark green) has held up very well to multiple washings and I'm very pleased with its durability. You'd never know it's an on-demand product.

Two new designs for the Hurricane Restaurant and the 113 Club:





Both of these shirts are available with front and back designs. Because the 113 Club has nipples (oh my!),Zazzle makes it rated R and you have to change the default setting to see it.

Someone recently made a request to have a shirt with the CLOSE COVER BEFORE STRIKING, phone number, and other esoteric details removed. I thought they were fun, but I'm curious if others like them or would prefer them be just the clean logos when possible?

I've been wanting to say since the first design that "close cover before striking" should be taken off. It doesn't make sense on a shirt. The addresses and numbers I think are cool and intregal.

Leave the address and phone number and please remove the 'please strike'.

Good feedback. That's two votes for removing the CLOSE COVER wording, but for leaving things like the address and phone number.

I bought one of the shirts so far and I am going to buy more. I am happy with the one I got. They are matchbook tees and so I like the whole design - close cover included.

We use the old phone numbers on our shirts (if it was part of the design.) Fun watching people try and figure out what an exchange is.

We did one years ago for a place in Rialto and their phone number was simply 42.
