Buttondown Aloha Shirt Ultramarine Kaulana Nā Pua

Size Guide

This Buttondown aloha shirt features our Kaulana Nā Pua print in Ultramarine and Ice Frappe.

The Ke Ana Laʻahana Class of 2011 asked us to create a unique ʻohe kāpala print to represent them.  The traditional art form illustrates their origins, their individual characters and the motions of a mele about the aliʻi Keawe which they learned from Tangarō.  Every student needed to pull from within their naʻau to memorize and perform the difficult choreography.  Each ʻohe kāpala represents one of the four students.  These are symbols of fortitude and commitment, models of the aliʻi they aspire to be like.  The name Kaulana Nā Pua, inspired by the song of the same name, honors and celebrates our graduates as they embark on the journey into adulthood.

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!
