Authentic aloha shirts inspired by “Mobile Suit Gundam: Hathaway’s Flash” and “Mobile Suit Gundam: Char’s Counterattack” are available at STRICT-G shops from July 31, 2021. Pre-orders are also available on Premium Bandai.
The aloha shirt brand “PAIKAJI” from Okinawa uses dress shirt technology to sew their aloha shirts from original fabrics of unique color and design, which are all produced in Okinawa. They are popular for their exotic and open-hearted print designs and finely sewn Japan-made products.
“Mobile Suit Gundam: Hathaway’s Flash” and “Mobile Suit Gundam: Char’s Counterattack” aloha shirts VS. Palm leaf pattern each feature a tropical design with boldly scattered palm leaves, and the Mobile Suits and emblems of opposing organizations on each side of the shirt. The subtle colors give the shirts an oriental vibe.
The shirts are made of butcher, a thick linen-like fabric that has irregularly crossed bumps on the surface making them highly breathable. They are woven and processed in Japan with reliable quality. The patterns match perfectly when the shirt is closed and the pattern on the chest pocket also is perfectly in line, which requires great skill, making the shirts delicate and high-quality.
