Pullover Aloha Shirt Black Kukui'ulaakamapua'a

Size Guide

This Pullover shirt features our Kukuiʻulaakamapuaʻa print in Black and Cobblestone.

The first vision I had of this layout came in August 2006 while making a lei kukui for Kuʻuipo Kahele.  I had been making the lei from leaves picked from my yard…  There are two kukui trees planted by Kuhaʻo and myself.  They are side by side and have been in the ground for about ten years.  The leaves were dancing in the wind.  Their distinct shape differs from the common kukui in that their shape looks like a pig's face.  The kukui is kinolau to Kamapuaʻa, the pig god, and this tree is his likeness.  I thought it would be nice to have many of these leaves, rather close to each other, singled out, so we could see each distinct shape.  Their size doesn't really matter; they could be presented in various ways as if falling from the branch.

The composition of this design combines both the original hand-cut art by Sig Zane and the graphic design layout by his son, Kuhao. The two-generational design team offers a peek into tradition as well as a contemporary view, embedded with cultural value, insight and heritage.

Inspired by the ivy-league shirts of the early 1900s, the fabric designs are pure Hawaiʻi, and the look is pleasingly fresh. 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 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!
