Tommy Bahama Celebrates 30 Years

Tommy Bahama, the iconic luxury, island lifestyle brand is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. For the past 3 decades the Seattle-based lifestyle brand has consistently proven the secret of its longevity: celebrating a joie de vivre philosophy embracing effortless style that can be found in sportswear, swimwear and accessories for men and women. In 1993 Tommy Bahama launched as an upscale menswear collection that invoked an island state of mind that has been the stepping stone to its journey as a true lifestyle brand. Today, the brand continues to evolve its dual gender omni channel presence in over 160 retail stores, e-commerce, wholesale, restaurants, bars and licensing. 

Defined by high quality fabrics, with the softest hand feel, expert craftsmanship and attention to detail, Tommy Bahama men’s is synonymous with timeless style. Throughout the 30-year history, innovation has been a brand hallmark seen through the advancement of silhouettes, fabrics and technical features. Tommy Bahama takes those sportswear fabrics men have come to know and love for the gym or the golf course and incorporates them easily into your everyday wardrobe. The evolution of this innovation is IslandZone®, a collection featuring unique tech fabrics that are wrinkle resistant, moisture wicking, quick drying and adds plenty of stretch for maximum freedom of movement, making it perfectly easy to pack and great for travel. Many of the fabrics in IslandZone are also made of sustainable fibers and contain UPF30 for excellent sun protection. Perfect to wear at home when you want to be comfortable, or when you want to look and feel sharp for a day at the office, these pieces can also handle a round of golf, dinner out or a backyard barbecue with style.

Made for work, sport or leisure time, the Tommy Bahama IslandZone performance blazer is the perfect sport coat, pairing casual and sophisticated with a moisture-wicking and quick-drying fabric that will keep you cool and comfortable all day—and all night—long. New to the collection, the On Par Pant was created from the success of the immediate best-selling On Par Short, a clean and updated classic style now available in 6-, 8- and 10-inch inseams. This versatile pant was designed with the ultimate comfort in mind; built with anti-wrinkle, four-way stretch and featuring an interior elastic waistband adding an extra layer of mobility. 

Tommy Bahama embraces chasing new adventures and soaking up every moment while living an active lifestyle and golf has always been an important sport to the brand. IslandZone fabrics and features make the most comfortable and functional golf attire; perfect to fill in an active wardrobe. The Chip Shot IslandZone 5-Pocket Pants and Chip Shot IslandZone Shorts, available in in 6-, 8- and 10-inch inseams, are sleek, comfortable and polished with stretch fabric and moisture-wicking properties that take you from a round of golf to a round of celebratory drinks. The Emfielder IslandZone® Polo, made with Supima® cotton and moisture-managing Leisure Tech® fabric is a classic that will keep you at the top of your game from the first tee to the 19th hole. Launching just in time for Father’s Day, the Palm Desert Oasis Polo is infused with cooling fibers to keep you feeling cool throughout your game; this trend-setting polo is also quick dry, moisture wicking and features enhanced stretch for ultimate range of motion. The Cayman Isles IslandZone® Cargo Shorts is a more casual alternative to the golf short, made with recycled fabrics that reduce your carbon footprint. Finish off the look for the links with the perforated and reversible IslandZone Rubberized Belt and the new, clean-lined Clubhouse Cap that blends breathability with comfort, style and sun-protection and you have the perfect look for the day on the course!

Tommy Bahama is perhaps best known for their signature prints—unique tropical, botanicals and conversational prints created by their in-house art department. These one-of-a-kind pieces of art are turned into prints for sportswear and swimwear collections, accessories, home collections and more. In celebration of its 30th anniversary, Tommy Bahama has created a capsule of custom-designed tropical prints and patterns and panel back artwork as well as the Patchwork in Paradise Silk Camp Shirt, designed using iconic prints from Tommy Bahama’s 30 years—a special patchwork of favorite Tommy Bahama prints from throughout their history.

A further nod to the brand's heritage is the Artist Series—featuring artwork from renowned artists from around the world. The Perfect Paradise Camp Shirt features a Tommy Bahama signature scenic tropical print by renowned Italian textile artist Bepe Spadaccini on a classic silk camp shirt silhouette, while the Bahama Coast Aloha from Hawaii IslandZone® Camp Shirt features a graphic Hawaiian-island scenic on a micro-perforated fabric for extra breathability—both unique additions to the collection. Not only for camp shirts, the Artist Series also features t-shirts, hoodies and swim trunks in prints to match the camp shirts, like the Baja Marlin Splash Swim Trunk with an all-over Marlin print on recycled polyester with UPF30.  

No matter what the season holds, Tommy Bahama is there for you with comfortable, performance-driven clothes that work for you every day, without losing that endlessly relaxed state of mind.
