Otara love t-shirt

This t-shirt is designed by Stan Tallon, one of the founders of 1990s-era label, Pasifika Clothing Company. The shop and wholesale business closed in 2000, and in 2003 Stan started a new clothing label, Sam's Island Gear. Based in Auckland, Stan describes his label as: "We design, print and sell South Pacific/Polynesian Flava tees to the world! Rep your hood & island hard with Sam's Island Gear." The t-shirt is worn with a necklace by Alan Preston, denim jeans by Workshop and a lavalava by Tanoa.
