What's the deal with the Pig?
After graduating from college, Islanders owner, John, spent six months in Hawaii. Where he saw a t-shirt with the pig (aka Beach Bacon) on it. When he came back, he and a friend decided to start Islanders.
Figuring out a cool t-shirt design for the original Islanders store, John called a bunch of t-shirt shops in Hawaii and asked to send a sales rep to show their designs. Thinking how crazy is a surf shop to sell a t-shirt with a pig on it, John decided to add the pig design to the first ever Islanders tee… Beach Bacon is now over 30 years old and still kicking it!
