Ancient Fishing Symbols Aloha Shirt
In vogue since the 40s and 50s, many Hawaiian print shirts, like this authentic Ancient Fishing Symbols Aloha Shirt, are held in our costume collection (including one worn on the television show Magnum P.I.). Printed in the style of traditional bark cloth apparel, this design depicts carved fish hooks, shark-teeth war clubs, paddles, outrigger canoes and more. Pattern-matching chest pocket, natural coconut buttons. 100% cotton. Handmade in Hawaii. Sizes M, L, XL, XXL.
So much more than a history of events, our National Museum of American History also chronicles how we relax and entertain.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
