We got into the clothing venture because we saw that Guam needed a dedicated label and tasteful product that could present Guam to the world Respectfully. That was in 1997. Time has flown and almost 20years later, we have seen more than 100 local clothing label s rise since then with over 60currently in operation, 30 of these still extremely active with several of them with flagship stores and soaring! TREMENDOUS!!
It was filling the gap between sport and ambition with what we felt was fashionable and island-serving.
Today this is still the case but now there is a room full of labels standing ready, willing, and –more than ever–able to deliver.
The rise and breath of our local clothing industry is a win for Guam as whole. Its great to see our island having different creative options to share what might harbor their love for things local.
We had ventured into button shirts before doing shorts sleeve and some long sleeve flannels but only had them in occasional and sporadic releases. We crafted up some samples of button designs using local island prints, but still friends and family were referring to these as “Aloha Shirts”
Before going further–first let it be said that we have absolutely nothing against “Aloha”. Though The Mariana Islands is thousands of miles apart from Hawaii–we’ve always had a respect for their gravity and efforts in the water, We’ve appreciated their hospitality and perfect weather,; i_in many ways we’ve embraced Hawaii as a sister island.
But what we feel that what we celebrate local–shouldn’t be done so in a foreign tongue, nor do we have to use overseas images, or tuck ourselves away in the shadow of someone else’s identity to convey an island vibe r to manifest island treasures.
This is what F Sharp is for: To provide quality and comfortable island formal attire–with local elements as our staple to Share Guam as a paradise destination, a resilient people, and an asset to the world around us. We aim to greet with Hafa Adai authentic attire, and we aim to resonate this vibe engineered through an island-rooted lifestyle to suit the needs from the beach to the Bassllica and everywhere in between

Honestly, we never really care to use the term “extreme”but this was titled by the reporter/photographer who took this photo when we were still selling out of the back of a pickuptruck.
