In Stock: The Pākī Overshirt

Aloha Beach Club Paki Overshirt

With the majority of our time spent in either Southern California or Hawaii we’re fortunate to enjoy relatively mild weather year round. However, even with a moderate seasonal change it’s easy to find oneself playing a game of getup guesswork… stuck with the uncertainty of knowing one layer won’t cut it but a proper jacket will leave you overheating when the sun breaks through the clouds.

Our intent in designing the Paki was to create a functional second layer that can dress up any look. Taking style cues from work wear worn on the Hawaiian sugar plantations of the 1800’s we added one chest pocket and two lower-front pockets to provide storage and easy access to one’s daily essentials.  As a part of our Made in Hawaii Holiday 16 collection the Paki is available in a lightweight indigo chambray and a medium weight white denim.

Pākī, served as Privy Councillor, Chamberlain to the King, Assistant Judge of the Supreme Court, and in the House of Nobles from its founding in 1841 until 1855. The most prominent feature of his character was his firmness; when he took a stand he was immovable.
