Betabrand Presents: Men’s and Women’s Original Bawaiian Shirts

At long last, we expose the ugly truth behind the so-called “Hawaiian Shirt.” Plus, a Model Citizen sock video to defrost the iciest of hearts.

Bawaiian Shirts

Ever heard of the island of Bawaii?

No? That’s not surprising. This poor little chunk of rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean is, quite possibly, the most woebegone nation on Earth. What else can you say about an island whose chief export is molten lava? An island known to other Polynesian cultures as “Isle of Infinite Sorrows” and “Place Where the Poisonous, Bloodthirsty Monkeys Dwell”?

Bawaiian Shirts

For centuries, Bawaiians had at least one thing they could be proud of: legendarily colorful, comfortable shirts. But then warriors from the neighboring Hawaiian Islands rowed ashore one night and stole all those shirts, leaving the inhabitants of Bawaii worse off than ever. To add insult to injury, the so-called “Hawaiian Shirt” soon grew famous around the world, while the increasingly desperate Bawaiians were forced to wear Styrofoam coolers that had washed up on the beach.

Bawaiian Shirts

Now, Betabrand is working to correct this historical injustice with beautiful, limited-edition men’s and women’s shirts in the classic Bawaiian style. They’re lightweight, super-comfortable, and feature flora prints that recall Bawaii’s lush past — before it was denuded by crazed wild pigs high on volcanic fumes.

Facts About Bawaii

Help us rekindle the dim flame of Bawaiian national pride by proudly wearing a genuine Bawaiian Shirt. (Disclaimer: they’re not completely genuine; we had to make them in San Francisco, because no one in Bawaii remembers how to sew.) We made just a small batch — order yours today!
