This Buttondown Aloha Shirt features our ʻAwa A Kāne print on Eucalyptus fabric with Desert Green and White ink.
“He ʻawa no nā kāne me nā wahine o ka lua.” The ritual chant honors the deities at Kīlauea. ʻAwa brings the minds together, focusing on the task at hand. With apu in hand, we offer to our ancestors, to the land, and to the heavens. This print was first cut in the mid-80s and offered for a decade. We bring it back into circulation in its original layout, reciting the lines of the chant once again.
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!
