Buttondown Aloha Shirt Malibu Hekili Keʻekeʻe Kauila Pohaku

Size Guide

This Buttondown aloha shirt features our Hekili Keʻekeʻe Kauila Pohaku print in Malibu and Water.

Upon Hiʻiaka's return from Kauaʻi with Lohiʻauipo, she faces her sister's jealousy and rage.  Kīlauea is under siege as an explosive and land-changing eruption takes place.  Hulihia Kīlauea is chanted by Lohiʻau, describing the elemental storm and ravages of the land.

The approach to this ʻohe kāpala design began with the chant.  Reciting it over and over became the inspiration for the graphics and its repetitive format.  The balance of the positive and negative spaces within the design are similar to the action with Pele and Hiʻiaka.  Each ʻohe kāpala was cut by Sig in the size of an actual ʻohe.  After the import of this artwork into our computers, Kuhao then arranged this final composition.

Inspired by the ivy-league shirts of the early 1900s, the fabric designs are pure Hawaiʻi, and the look is pleasingly fresh. The Buttondown is an open front, tapered shirt with a full length placket. Coconut buttons are featured on the stand-up, button-down collar and on the front placket. Fabric is machine-washable 100% cotton broadcloth. 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!
