This Buttondown Aloha Shirt features our Loulu design on Shitake fabric with Espressol ink.
The only native palm found in our islands, the fronds were widely used in times past. Woven in strips often 1/16" wide, hats were treasures handed down through generations. These weavings are very valuable because of the intricate work involved. This design was first used for the Palm Society's Annual Meeting here in Hilo in 1990.
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!
