This is Freenote's take on the classic Hawaiian or Aloha shirt. These shirts were first introduced in the 1930’s and gained popularity in the 50’s. The original Hawaiian shirts were made of recycled kimono fabric. In order to perfect the fit, the brand researched a good friend's collection of vintage Hawaiian shirts spanning across several time periods.
They pride theirselves on subtle details such as the engineered pocket, as well as the 1/8” double needle accents throughout with high stitch count sewing. All Freenote buttons are custom with subtle branding. All labels are made in Italy of a cotton base whenever possible.
Freenote Cloth is the project of three brothers based in San Juan Capistrano, California, obsessed with producing garments made in the US with top-notch fabrics sourced from Japan and the highest level of craftsmanship. The brand encompasses its strong roots in Americana and quality garments long lost from the western American frontier.
