Jams World is not a Hawaiian shirt maker as much as we are a manufacturer of contemporary casual lifestyle wear with themes that transcend markets and seasons. Jams World has been designing and manufacturing clothing in Honolulu, Hawaii for the young and young at heart since 1964. We have deep roots in the ocean and surfing and the Jams World of today, as in the past, is all about COLOR, FREEDOM, DIFFERENCE & LOVE. We are passionate about vibrant COLORS, the FREEDOM to dress the way you feel, the courage to be DIFFERENT, with HUMOR and a LOVE of life!
Jams World got its start as Jams ® shorts, which were sold in our original store "Surf Line Hawaii", a small surfboard shop located in Honolulu across the street from the famous Ala Moana Shopping Center. The store carried surfboards from legendary shapers like Yater, Hobie, Bing, Lopez, and Aipa, to name a few. We could not find any clothing that we thought was fun, colorful, and unique so we began to create our own! Jams® shorts were long, colorful, and fun, unlike anything else on the market at the time. Mike Doyle, then Surfing World Champion, turned heads with the first pair at Makaha Beach in the 60's. Butch Van Artsdalen, a talented surfer, lifeguard, and waterman followed suit and the brand took off, adding new styles and prints to the line. – less–ZoomInfo
