    NEW! Fitted Hawaii “Ku’i-A-Lua” 



    Another Saturday, another Fitted Hawaii release.

    This one is pretty significant, as this also comes out on the same day as the highly anticipated BJ Penn/ Georges St. Pierre fight in Las Vegas for UFC 94.

    So, to bring pride to Hawaii, the Fitted crew is bringing three new releases to the masses.

    Kui-A-Lua is a reference to the hand-to-hand combat that the early Hawaiian (and even modern Hawaiians) use to represent the pride to their deity, in their culture and in themselves.  Of course, what a better analogy for Hawaii’s modern day warrior, BJ Penn, as he heads into the octagon for battle.

    This release is actually three different pieces: first up is a kelly green shirt with a tonal double F logo all over the front and the Fitted crown on the back hit.

    Next in the set is a paper/woven Kamehameha Fitted.  Similar to the tan “Lauhala” piece last year, except this time, there’s a black crown, gold Kamehameha logo, white eyelets, a green brim to match the shirt, and red underbill.  Also, like the “Lauhala,” there is a gold satin lining with the Hawaiian weapons print all over.

    Finally, there’s another hoodie out there for the heads to bundle up in this cold weather.  The classic “Home Grown” print on the back of an all black hoodie, two pockets on the front and a white Fitted crest on the front.

    All three piece release this Saturday morning at 11am.  As always, it’s first come, first served for these types of releases.  Also, please kokua and if you plan on coming early, park at Ala Moana and walk across the street.

    Swap and Bop Party 


    What the heck is a swap and bop?

    Well, 808 Wonderland and Mercury Bar is ready to set that definition with the “Swap and Bop” party this Saturday night.  The premise is simple: come in with one outfit, leave with another. How does that happen, well, every few minutes or so, a siren will sound… when the siren blares, you must switch an article of clothing with someone.  So, if you see someone that has a cool shirt on, you have every right to swap shirts with that person.  SOunds fun, but, with me being a robust human, I doubt there will be many people for me to switch clothes with on that night.

    If you run into that problem, never to fear, because there is also an immunity bracelet that you cna purchase to make sure that brand new jacket you bought goes home with you at the end of the night.

    So, it goes without saying that you probably want to wear clothes that you don’t mind parting with.  As an added bonus, you can bring those extra clothes that you don’t mind parting with and donate them at the door to H-5 (Hawaii Helping the Hungry Have Hope) for a discount at the door.

    The Swap and Bop party goes down this Saturday night at Mercury Bar, starting at 9pm.  It’s $10 at the door, $8 if you bring a clothing donation and $15 if you want the immunity bracelet.

    Super Bowl 43: Cardinals vs. Steelers 


    As if you didn’t need to know about the Super Bowl being played on Sunday.

    It’s the Arizona Cardinals vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers in Tampa. Vegas says the Steelers by 6.5, but all the focus is on Arizona.  And for good reason, as it seems to be the trend in sports where the lovable losers and the underdogs get a chance in the big moment.  Even the past World Series was a testament to that trend, as the lovable loser Tampa Bay Rays took on the underdog Philadelphia Phillies.

    My money is on the Cardinals because of the high flying offense, the resurrection of Kurt Warner, the emergence of Larry Fitzgerald as the best receiver in football, and the aforementioned lovable loser/underdog status.

    The 43rd Super Bowl is on NBC.  What time does it start? Just tune in sometime Sunday morning, some pre-game show should be on by then.
