This vibrant vintage shirt is a keepsake from Hawaii. It features a graphic that says Hawaii No Ka Oi, which is a Hawaiian phrase that basically means, "Hawaii is the best!" The little guy in the graphic who's saying "It's the best!" is called a Menehune, a figure from Hawaiian legend.

The Menehune are a mythical race of dwarf people who are prevalent in Hawaiian mythology. According to tradition, Menehune are said to live deep in the forests and valleys of the islands. Legend has it that they would only emerge at night to build elaborate, structural masterpieces such as fishponds, temples, and drainage ditches. Humans couldn't even see the Menehune, unless they had some tie to them or the Menehune chose to show themselves. There are even a few historic landmarks in Hawaii that are said to have been built by the Menehune.

Tag says XL but fits like a modern unisex adult medium. Repair on collar, discoloration throughout, and hanger fade on the shoulders, see pics.
