This Pullover Aloha Shirt features our ʻApeʻelekū print on Prussian fabric with Sky and White ink.
I remember ʻape growing near the ocean. Growing in the shade of Kamani trees, I am taken by the darkness of the leaves. Oversize, upright, and almost looking mutant, the ʻape had such a pronounced presence that it commanded attention.
I always liked ʻape. The glossy leaves are a powerful statement in the wild, growing in the darker understory. Heard that they used to eat the root during famine. I prefer to use the leaves as an umbrella in sudden downpours.
Inspired by the ivy-league shirts of the early 1900s, the fabric designs are pure Hawai‘i, 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 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!
