Crazy Shirts celebrates history

Crazy Shirts shows its statehood pride with new designs celebrating Hawaii's 50th anniversary as the youngest of the United States of America. President Dwight D. Eisenhower officially proclaimed Hawaii the 50th state on Aug. 21, 1959.

The 50th Anniversary of Hawaii Statehood logo is featured on Crazy Shirts' ti-leaf dyed shirts. On the women's scoop-neck tee, the logo tops a hibiscus band, and on the back of the men's crew neck, it's encircled by hibiscus and fern leaves. The men's line also features a crew neck T-shirt with the official anniversary logo fronting the Hawaii State flag.

The 50th Statehood Anniversary line also includes a women's design that features the Hawaiian Island chain with a pink hibiscus, and reads “;Celebrating the Big Five-0, 50th Anniversary of Statehood.”;

The designs are available in adult sizes and retail between $25 and $29. Look for them at all Hawaii retail locations and online at www.CrazyShirts.com.
