Vintage Bark Cloth Tapa Shirt

 

 

Kamanawanaleia. Maui sunsets at the locals only (aren't they all?) surf beach at Kapalua when it was still surrounded by pineapple fields in the 1970s. The vibe is actually more Tahitian to us, but its hard to pinpoint when or where this shirt hails from. Cotton bark cloth has a subtle island tapa print in shades of green with gold, white and black. Deep split v neckline, with demilune pockets at the hip. Chest 44", sleeve (center back to end of sleeve) 25", length 27". The word 'cooks' is stamped on the inside of the collar. Excellent condition. $105
