This Pullover Aloha Shirt features our Maiʻahuawaena print on Roasted Pecan fabric with Black ink.
At Kahanu Gardens, I studied this strange banana plant. The fruit was normal, hanging outside of its stalk. But the name Maiʻa Hapai derives from the fruit sometimes developing inside the stalk. This would require a c-section to get the fruit!
I've read accounts that the bananas come out sparkling and ready to eat. Will have to revisit the gardens in hope that I get to see the Maiʻa Hapai inside!
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!
100% Cotton, Studio Model is 5'10" and is wearing size M.
