2015 model has arrived. They are not released in Japan, yet. They are going to be sold at Mens’ section of Isetan, on 7th floor from Golden Week (2015 May 2nd – 6th) in Japan -The popular design with pineapple pattern. Original shirts were produced from DUKE KAHANAMOKU BY CISCO in early 1950’s. This is the reproduction of the one of the earliest vintage aloha shirts.
This is my 5th times to make a reproduction of Pineapple, however, this one is completely different from other ones. I produced color patterns that are different than cannot be found in original colors.
Navy-based pineapple shirts turned out exactly how I imagined. I did not have to rework for this one at all. The contrast that golden yellow and blue are creating is incredible. I have a feeling that this will be one of the masterpieces next spring.
