    NEW! Fitted “Killin’ Em With Aloha” pack 

    With the big 50th anniversary of Statehood occurring today, the Fitted Ohana has a little present to give to the peoples.

    To commemorate this occasion, the Fitted Ohana has created this special pack honoring not only the royal beginnings of our land, but also a shining example of why we are the Aloha State. Titled “Killin’ Em With Aloha” the pack features two shirts and a hat, all with significant meaning to our land.

    The first shirt is a white number called “Sitting on a Throne of Gold,” displaying the proud monarchs that once ruled the land.

    The shirt and hat have a second meaning: called “Killin’ Em With Aloha” the shirt and hat are a tribute to the 35th Infantry Regiment, also known as the Pineapple Army. Their story is an awesome one, which you can read up on at the Fitted blog.

    The shirt is in black and features the phrase “Killin ‘Em With Aloha” in red. The hat is an army green 5-panel with the Pineapple Army taro leaf patch sewn on the front.

    These three pieces will be available starting at 11am at Fitted Hawaii on Kona St.

    For more info and to read up on the background of these pieces, check out the Fitted Hawaii Ohana on their blog.
