MR. ALOHA

Saturday, November 29th, 2008 by

Robert D. Crumb is a well known American illustrator, known more for his subversive and satirical views of pop-culture in America, taking shots at controversial American topics that most artists in the mainstream would normally not touch. Mr. Crumb is also known for his underground comic book artists, most noticeably the 1970s ‘Keep On Truckin’’ & ‘Fritz The Cat’. He’s even been compared to satirical authors such as Mark Twain and Jonathan Swift. The reason for taking such stances on American pop-culture were due to his losing the legal rights to his aforementioned ‘Keep On Truckin’’ cartoon, dealing with legal battles between him & the IRS. We wanted to pay tribute to Mr. Crumb (who currently lives in South France, but with our own Hawaiian twist as always. The graphic on this tee portrays what Robert would envision if one his characters were to visit our islands. Printed on red, this tee features one his more prominent characters, throwing up 2 shakas and rocking a Hawaiian shirt, with Aloha Served Daily scribbled in. The hat for this drop are a Philadelphia Phillies: all black suede with yellow ‘P’ logo and eyelets and orange brim & button. Please feel free to watch these video’s to get more acquainted with this great American artist.

Aloha and Mahalo,

ENDANGERED

Tuesday, November 18th, 2008 by


Hawaii most definitely is THE cultural melting pot of the world, seeing as there is almost every ethnicity group one could conjure up, all situated across 8 islands that make up the Hawaiian Island chain. Filipinos, Japanese, Korean, Puerto Ricans, Portuguese, amongst many other ethnic groups were brought to these islands to work the plantation fields, tending to the many sugarcane, pineapple and rice fields that popped up across the island in the late 1800s. Fast forward to the present and you’d most likely notice that the Hawaiian population (with Hawaiian blood) has thinned out extremely. According to a recent U.S. Census report, Hawaiians make up only about 16% of the entire population in Hawaii – which is crazy when you really think about it, knowing these islands we live on were once entirely populated by Hawaiians. Along with the diminishing of the Hawaiian bloodline, there has also been a steady decline in various plants and animals that thrive on these islands of ours, which include the Hawaiian Monkseal, the Nene Goose and the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle. Even the ever so elusive silversword plant which makes it’s homes on certain mountain summits is now on the Endangered Species list. And most of this is contributed to the overwhelming overdevelopment across the island as well as the rise in hunting, and generally just plain ignorance. But no need to fret, reservation groups are doing what they can to solve these problems! This brings us to our “Hawaiian Endangered Species” pack, consisting of 2 customized “Pride / H” hats and a new shirt. The shirt, printed on all black features a front pocket on the left chest area with the highly recognizable “Pride H” reflective print in Old English, while the back sees the words “Hawaiian Endangered Species” in neon yellow, white and orange. To go along with the shirt is a new “Pride” hat called ” ‘alo’alo” (; to dodge rapidly or continuously; to look about slyly; evasive.) in 2 colorways. The first features a brown “camouflage-ish” print that would seamlessly blend in with any of the many forests across the island. The “H” uses Black with an neon orange stroke, along with both the FITTED crown and crest. The inside has the old Hawaiian state seal printed on a satin lining. The second colorway features a similar pattern seen on the brown, except in a dark green color with subtle hits of brown and tan. The “H” on this version is black with a neon green stroke, also seen on the FITTED crown and crest, and featuring the same Hawaiian State seal printed on the satin lining inside. These are limited, and are also available at the following boutiques.

THE BLUEPRINT 3 YEARS & COUNTING

Monday, November 17th, 2008 by

Blueprints are basically the starting point for any project, it’s where all the combined ideas come together and are layed out before the final product is actually put together. The many meetings at Helena’s is where the blueprint was laid out for Fitted, and was born – which transpired into what you see today. And that leads us to “The Blueprint, 3 years and counting” tee on all white with Fitted across in 3-D and all the small, fine details that go into a blueprint. With the hat, we flipped a Milwaukee Brewers: dark green on the 2 front panels, black on the back four and brim, red underbill and dark green eyelets. Lastly, we have a Red with black pinstriped UH hat with a denim Bill. All releasing Tomorrow 11.18.08.

Aloha & Mahalo’s for all the support through the years!
