Description


While lifeguards have been around since the first Hawaiian hotel opened in 1901, ushering in the modern era of tourism, it was the Territory of Hawaii Act 201 that officially established a “Life-Saving Patrol” for Waikiki Beach that officially created the Ocean Safety Division of Oahu. Act 201 called for assignment to Waikiki Beach of two members not less than 18 and not older than 40 years of age, who were “selected for their strength and ability as swimmers and boatmen, and shall be expert in the use of the methods of resuscitation.” Today there are quite a few more tourists and locals alike enjoying the beaches, so there are considerably more lifeguards on duty to help keep everyone safe in the often unpredictable waters of Hawaii. Whether you were a big island lifeguard and feeling a bit nostalgic or just looking for a new angle to pick up chicks, this one is just for you!

Details


Like all our designs, this one is treated with our signature ‘relic-ing’ process which includes our own secret recipe of hand-painted chipping, cracking, fading, and just the right touch of yellowing to ensure that it looks the part of a true vintage imprint.** We lay these works of art down on premium Bella+Canvas 3001 Unisex Jersey Short Sleeve Tees, one of the softest, best-wearing t-shirts available today, via state of the art direct to garment (DTG) printing which allows us to create a vintage effect that simply can’t be accomplished with other printing methods. In short, these shirts are everything you’ve dreamed of and more – it feels soft and lightweight with just the right amount of stretch making it comfortable and flattering for both men and women.

Sizing


Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current t-shirts, laying it flat and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the shirt laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the shirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam. While our tees are all made using premium, pre-shrunk, ring-spun cotton, there can be some shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence, we always suggest going up a size.
