    NEW! Fitted Hawaii Kamehameha Multicolor

    The shirts are tonal as well, matching the vibe of the new tonal Kamehameha pieces.

    These are available now, both in-store at Fitted Hawaii’s Kona St. headquarters and online.

    NEW! in4mation Pearlridge store 


    The in4mants always keep it moving.

    This time, they’re moving out to the Westside.

    This has been kept under wraps for a little bit and rumbling and rumors have been flying about since the beginning of the Summer of a Westside in4mation invasion.

    Well, the rumors are true and they’ll become a reality starting this Wednesday.

    in4mation, one of Hawaii’s premier brands, will be opening up a THIRD location at Pearlridge Mall, close to their original roots in Mililani.

    The shop will be located on the second floor, next to Borders. You can expect the usual in4mation style and fashion to be on display, plus the integration of the skateshop will bring yet another spot for skaters to get their fix.

    The soft opening is this Wednesday, with the grand opening going down this Saturday.

    For more about the opening and to see what they’ll have in stock, check out the in4mants online.

    NEW! Fitted Hawaii “Big Game Hunters” pack 

    Another Saturday, another Fitted Hawaii release.

    This week’s offering is something called the “Big Game Hunters” pack and it sends a shout out to the homies on the grind, trying to hunt that wild boar all over the island jungles.

    The shirt is a dark green affair with a Big Game Hunters circle logo on the front and Big Game Hunters logo on the back featuring a boar rolling through the brush.

    The hat is a black New Era featuring the boar graphic in green and orange, dark green detailing, and orange camouflage satin lining. Definitely a head turner, for sure.

    These two pieces will be available this Saturday at the Fitted Hawaii Kona St. location.

    NEW! Kicks/HI Saturday releases 

    This Saturday marks a couple of dope releases for the Kicks/HI fam.

    First up is the initial delivery of their Fall 2009 Essentials line, designed with classic shapes and current style. It’s meant to be timely and timeless at the same time, you know?

    The first delivery contains all three colors of the Essentials V-Neck and the 5 Panel caps. The last time either one was in-store, they sold out with the quickness, so you best be jumping all over these on Saturday.

    Also releasing on Saturday is a special Kicks/HI collabo with “Kid” Yamamoto and Japanese MMA Stable Krazy Bee. The tee is grey with the Krazy Bee logo on the front pocket location and all the sponsor logos on the back. Definitely a dope shirt to rock for the MMA head in us all. This shirt will be available ONLY at the Makaloa shop.

    All these dope items will be available starting this Saturday. For more info, check out the Kicks/HI crew online.
