This Buttonup Aloha Shirt features our Kamakalaukoa print on Pepper fabric with Parsley and Champagne ink.
The graduating class of Ke Ana Laʻahana 2008 offered their own manaʻo for the design we gifted the class. Representing koa leaves, the wake behind a waʻa moving through water, and the Hoaka moon, these images symbolize our keiki and their experiences in life. Our design layout by Kūhaʻo offers a look at koa leaves in a large, graphic presentation. Alongside images by the keiki, we offer the true koa leaves as well as its enlarged petioles (crescent-shaped phyllodes). The name is a play on the plant design and layout. Students are young warriors, standing at the edge, ready to graduate, with eyes wide open, looking at all the world has to offer.
Inspired by the ivy-league shirts of the early 1900s, the fabric designs are pure Hawai‘i, and the look is pleasingly fresh. The Buttondown is an open front, tapered shirt with a full length placket, while The Pullover features a half placket and is designed slightly wider to allow over-the-head dressing with ease. Coconut buttons are featured on the stand-up, button-down collar and on the front placket. Tuck it in or leave it out over the trousers for a more casual look. Either way, it's the perfect touch of crisp aloha!
