This Pullover Aloha Shirt features our Ulunui print on Prusian fabric with Spa Blue ink.
This is the very first of the ulu designs. It was one of the five cuts I had initially chosen to be taken to Honolulu to be printed in bulk. Back in 1987, life was quite simple. There was no big meaning for why things were done. In that simple nature, because the breadfruit was so big, it was called ulunui. Nalani's sister's name is Ulunuiokamamalu; we often give reference to her as Ulunui, or Big Ulu. This print is indeed a part of her legacy.
Inspired by the ivy-league shirts of the early 1900s, the fabric designs are pure Hawai‘i, and the look is pleasingly fresh. The Buttonup 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!
