Kicking Off The Aloha Shirt Book Tour

POSTED BY prbythebook ON April 18, 2016

Kicking Off The Aloha Shirt Book Tour

We are pleased to announce the kickoff of the Aloha Shirt Book Tour starting today, April 19 in NYC! Author Dale Hope will be traveling to eight cities on the tour between April 19th and May 6th. Join the Aloha Shirt Club on Facebook to keep up with the tour!

About the book

ALOHA SHIRT_FINAL COVERAre Hawaiian shirts back in fashion? According to Vogue Australia, that depends on whether you think they ever ‘went.’ Today.com says they are making a comeback “in a big way.”

Patagonia announces the release of a fully updated edition of The Aloha Shirt: Spirit of the Islands (June 2016), the complete book on the most enduring souvenir ever invented. Dale Hope’s authoritative book recounts the colorful stories behind these marvelous shirts: as cultural icons, evocative of the mystery and the allure of the islands, capturing the vibe of the waterman culture and lifestyle—casual, relaxed and fun.

Serving as one of Hawaii’s most famous ambassadors for 75+ years, the Hawaiian shirt—aka Aloha shirt—is more popular than ever. From California to Tokyo, hundreds of manufacturers are turning out modern-day shirts costing from $15 to $100. Collectors on eBay and at New York auction houses are paying thousands of dollars for a single shirt that cost less than a dollar in 1935. Now a half-billion-dollar-a-year industry, the Aloha shirt holds its legacy as a palpable symbol of Hawaii’s “Aloha Spirit.”

Second-generation Aloha shirt maker Dale Hope grew up during the era when it came to be recognized as a spiritual badge. Having spent his career devoted to the Hawaiian shirt, Hope is the perfect guy to share its colorful story.
