Aloha kākou!

It’s been an incredible journey as we shared a piece of our history with you week after week. As we bring this collection to a close, would like to send out a huge mahalo to all of our customers for the continued support throughout the years, since our inception to present day and beyond. You are the ones who made this collection possible, because without you, we would have no legacy. M A H A L O !

This Saturday marks the conclusion of our Spring 2014 D2 “Legacy” Collection, with the following releases based off memorable designs from our past.

 

Fasi 59FIFTY
We are bringing back the precursor to our popular Cheehuu design—the Fasi—which was designed as a tribute to Frank Fasi, the longest serving mayor in Hawaii. During his tenure he created his own legacy, one that includes opening the Neal S. Blaisdell Center, creating the Summer Fun children’s program, starting the annual Honolulu City Lights festival, and arguably his most important accomplishment: establishing TheBus, which has been recognized as a national award-winning public transportation system. We first released the Fasi hat on Black Friday back in 2007, in a green/red/yellow colorway limited to only 50 pieces. The second time around we released it in black denim with tonal black embroidery and a red undervisor. For this special release, we are bringing the Fasi back on an indigo denim 59FIFTY, with white embroidery all around. Bold contrast is provided by the red undervisor, eyelets, and top button.

“Pride of the Pacific” Tee – White
Featuring our classic “Pride of the Pacific” pattern—originally released in 2010 on a v-neck tee—printed all over in red on a white tee. The printing process on this shirt is unique in that the pattern was printed on the inside of the shirt rather than the outside. This allows for a subtle, muted look to the overall shirt.

Aloha kākou!

Our Spring 2014 D2 “Legacy” Collection continues this weekend with the following releases, based off memorable designs from our past.

 

“Pride of the Pacific” Cheehuu Snapback
The use of geometric shapes played a large role in Polynesian culture and story-telling; so with our “Pride of the Pacific” pattern, we strived to represent the simplistic beauty of the shapes used to retain our past. Utilizing our classic pattern from 2010, we’ve created this unique Cheehuu snapback for our Legacy collection. It features a black cotton/linen base with white embroidery all around, along with a white snap enclosure. The visor is wrapped in our “Pride of the Pacific” pattern in black and white, reverse printed for a subtle and clean look.

“Survival of the FITTED” Tee – Black
With our Legacy collection, we thought it would be the perfect time to bring back one of our oldest designs, dating back to 2006. Inspired by the Darwinistic phrase “survival of the fittest” and designed with a nod to Mobb Deep (who released a record called “Survival of the Fittest” on their classic album “The Infamous”). Coming up on our 10th year in this business, the phrase we proudly displayed on one of our oldest tees still rings true to this day. This time around, we’re releasing the design on a black tee in honey dew with white drop shadow. Our classic large crown sits high on the back, also in honey dew.

Aloha kākou!

Our Spring 2014 D2 “Legacy” Collection continues this weekend with the following releases, based off memorable designs from our past.

 

“Hano Hano” Brigante Strapback
Based off one of our most luxurious pieces, this Brigante strapback proves to be a magnificent tribute to the original “Hano Hano” H Pride that released back in 2008. Fitting as well since “Hano Hano” translates to magnificent, glorious, or honored. For our Legacy collection, we felt the only way to do it right would be to use our Brigante design, showcasing our motto “Aloha Served Daily” which we’ve been living since day one. The entire crown is covered with a beautiful, glossy black polyester jacquard, while the undervisor and sweatband are dipped in a brilliant honey dew color. The uppervisor highlights the underneath with honey dew contrasted stitching. The eyelets are also done in honey dew, while the front, side, and back embroidery all shine in a metallic silver. To continue the high-end look, we opted for a clean polyester twill strap in white with black and honey dew stripes, adjusted by a silver buckle. The inner lining is a perfect ode to the original as it showcases the Hawaiʻi state seal.

SPRING 2014 D2 “LEGACY” (FOURTH RELEASE)

Thursday, April 17th, 2014 by

Releasing in-store and online this Saturday, April 19th, 2014.

Aloha kākou!

Our Spring 2014 D2 “Legacy” Collection continues this weekend with the following releases, based off memorable designs from our past.

 

“Island Camo Leopard” Aloha Snapback
Back in 2008 we created a cotton burlap hat using the H Pride logo, but it was never released — instead it remained as a rare sample that we were always fond of. Now through our Legacy collection, we have a chance to revive the look and feel in a new way. Featuring a cotton burlap base, we’ve modified the leopard print by utilizing our Island Camo pattern for the structure. It also features white embroidery on the front “Aloha” and back crest, along with gold eyelets, New Era logo, and side crown. Bold red on the undervisor, top button, and snap enclosure perfectly contrasts the Island Camo leopard print. The Hawaiʻi State Seal is displayed on the satin inside liner.

Aloha kakou!

The Alaka’i Wilderness Preserve, located on the island of Kaua’i, is also known as the Alaka’i Swamp, although it’s not a swamp by true definition. For those who are interested in hiking this beautiful trail, it can be accessed via the the Pihea Vista trail, located on the the Pu’u o Kila lookout on Waimea Canyon. This release represents the lush forest of Kaua’i and all other forests and jungles found throughout our ‘aina. Our Alaka’i tanktop features a lush, green jungle print on the front and back, backed with black. This next v-neck tee features an inside out Polynesian print that runs throughout the entire shirt. Limited to 50 pieces each, act fast!
