Hawaiian Shirt from 1973

Postby cokenner on Thu Mar 13, 2014 3:42 pm

Found this shirt and was wanting anyone's input on its worth, if any. I has an awesome pattern and considering the label, might have some decent value... or none at all! Thanks for the help!

Edit: I just noticed in the pattern it says 'HAWAII 73 on some of the flowers. Kinda cool.

Hard to determine it's worth, but I would put it up for auction with a starting bid of $49.99 and see who bites. It's got a nice print, so make sure you get nice close-ups. Some of the business-related Hawaiian shirts do pretty well (although they're usually sports, beer or gas related), but National Life is insurance/financial services, so I'm unsure. If it doesn't move at that price, you can always lower it.

Also, if there is an WPL or RN, look it up to see who the maker is. That may or may not increase the value.

Info from the RN. 35566

Seems to be made by Malia, which I think will work good in my favor!
