The Vintage Split Aloha Shirt was created in typical Dr. Collectors fashion. We love to take vintage classics and rework them into new garments that are built to last. All of our pieces derive from either military issued uniforms or vintage garments of the blue collar worker uniform.
For the vintage split Hawaiians, we found vintage shirts from the 70s and 80s, cut them in half down the middle, sewed them back together with similar preferred prints, and indigo dyed each shirt one by one to give them the Dr. Collectors signature touch. We treat each style differently when indigo dying. No two shirts are alike, and not all Aloha Shirts come indigo dyed, but you can find the left that matches the right in the same size.
Also, we'll be doing more blog post and stories about our process and how we create at Trading Post Gallery & Dr. Collectors. If you enjoy these post please let us know in the comments and share on social media sites below.
