Hurricane Cove Catalina Island Tiki Bar Polynesian Restaurant Matchbook Shirt
Hurricane Cove was the name of a restaurant bar attached to the Waikiki Hotel on Catalina Island. One of the few, if not perhaps only, Polynesian themed businesses on Catalina, it may or may not have been inspired by one of the many tropical themed fims shot on the island, including the 1937 film The Hurricane�directed by John Ford, with Dorothy Lamour, Jon Hall, Mary Astor.
Whatever the case, Hurricane Cove featured some of the best live music and entertainment on Catalina and was in operation until the late 1970's when a fire destroyed both the hotel and the bar/restaurant. This shirt comes from art scanned from a matchbook by us, cleaned up then hand redrawn in a vector image program to provide the best possible resolution for this really cool piece of art.
The image is printed on a light blue Hanes Nano t-shirt. The original matchbook art featured a predominantly pink background, however we know that not a lot of men wear pink shirts (we will offer a pink version on a ladies shirt in a separate listing). If you woul dlike this on a pink shirt, send us a message on checkout telling us that's what you want and we will put this on a pink Hanes Nano shirt.
Not a heat transfer or a screen print, this shirt is hand-craftedly printed on our very own Direct-T-Garment printing machine. Think of this as a Giclee print on a 100% Ring Spun Cotton t-shirt. Available in men's sizes Small-XL, If you need ladies sizes please let us know. The shirt itself is a 100& Ringspun Cotton Hanes Nano T-Shirt. Think of an American Apparel shirt that will not fall apart after a couple of washings or a hard night of lifting Mai Tais in honor of the tiki gods. Ultra-light cotton jersey feels fantastic next to your skin. Contemporary, contoured fit. Preshrunk for great fit wash after wash. Two-needle sleeve and bottom hems for added durability. Narrow, ribbed collar for a more vintage look
