Hawaii Featured In T-Shirt Magazine #48

Kristine McGlinchey, contributing writer over at T-Shirt Magazine, features Hawaii in her National Scene column in the most recent issue of T-Shirt Magazine. And guess who made the post – yours truly! That’s right, Kristine posted a quick blurb about me and my Hawaii based tee blog. As a side note, I also began writing interviews for T-Shirt Magazine as well so be on the look out for my contributing articles. In this issue I interviewed designer Nick Guenzler. 

In the article, Kristine also mentions a couple of Hawaii based tee brands, two of which I had no idea existed! Super Good For You actually got me pretty excited as I dig their style and so I’ll be sure to check them out sometime soon (they sell their goods in a boutique here on the island). Do The Hula was another featured Hawaii brand – not so excited about these guys, they look like they cater more towards the tourist crowd. 

Super Good For You

The last Hawaii brand mentioned was Local Motion, which is pretty huge here in the islands. They sell Local Motion branded T-Shirts as well as surf and beach accessories. Local Motion is actually one of the three big surf shops in Hawaii, the other two being Town & Country Surf Designs, better known as T&C, and Hawaiian Island Creations, known by the locals as HIC. You’ll find most of the kids here sporting one of these three brands whenever you head to the beaches down here.
