Lei Kupukupu Buttonup Aloha Shirt - Gotham Grey

This Buttonup Aloha Shirt features our Lei Kupukupu print on Gotham Grey fabric with Ash ink.

Before kapa was laid out to dry in the sun, a kapa maker might emboss her work with her own special design which would show through on the finished product much like a watermark on fine paper.  Like the watermarks of old, the border design on this pareu reflects this tradition, showcasing the bones of the kupukupu fern.  Kupu, meaning to sprout, encourages continual growth and expansion.

Inspired by the ivy-league shirts of the early 1900s, the fabric designs are pure Hawai‘i, and the look is pleasingly fresh. The Buttonup 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!

100% Cotton, Studio model is 5'11" and wearing a size M.
