This Buttonup Aloha Shirt features our Kalakolokai print on Cheddar fabric with Orange and Olive ink.
"The Sun Crawls at the Ocean"
The ʻilima and the kaunaʻoa are friends found growing together at the oceanside. Although the kaunaʻoa is a parasite, it depends on the ʻilima as its host.
The name given to this design expresses the colors of the blossom and the kaunaʻoa. Both are rich hues of orange. Using the sun as the metaphor for both flower and vine, the name describes the sun moving from East to West during the day along the shore.
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!
