Vintage Sizing

Vintage sizes run smaller than modern sizes.

Why? The average American has grown over the decades and so have the sizes produced by manufacturers. For example, if you wear a modern day size Large you may need to purchase a vintage size XL.

Theodore "Ted" Makalena (June 14, 1934 " September 13, 1968) was an American professional golfer who played in the 1960s. Makalena's only win in an official PGA Tour event came on October 30, 1966, when he won the Hawaiian Open by defeating veteran tour professionals Billy Casper and Gay Brewer. His record breaking score of 271 for 72 holes stood for many years. He was the first native born Hawaiian to win this event, and one of only two to have ever won it (the other being David Ishii in 1990). Makalena's victory in this event made him a very popular figure in Hawaii. Two years after his win in the Hawaiian Open, Makalena died at the age of 34 less than five days after being injured in a swimming accident in Waikiki.
