This Buttonup Aloha Shirt features our Ola Kanilehua print on Sea Mist fabric with Aloha ink.
This updated print features the original “Ka Ua Kani Lehua” art drawn by Sig for Hilo Kumu Hula Johnny Lum Ho and his Hālau O Ka Ua Kani Lehua in the 80s. The name “Ka Ua Kani Lehua” refers to our Hilo rain and that unique sound it makes while falling on lehua blossoms in a forest of ʻōhiʻa. To celebrate their comeback and great win at the 2016 Merrie Monarch Festival, a new layout was created by one of our designers, a long time Hālau O Ka Ua Kani Lehua dancer, Brandy-Alia Serikaku. Ola Ka Ua Kani Lehua! This iconic print comes back to life!
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!
