The Mister Freedom® Upa Upa shirt, a pattern inspired by 1960’s-70’s lounge attire with a touch of dune buggy escapade.
This shirt features five pockets with double button closure flaps, in a (surf) safari jacket detail with a definite sixties accent. The most striking part of our Upa Upa shirt however is the unconventional use of the printed fabric. A popular island fashion in the mid 1960’s, reverse-print fabrics gradually became the cloth of choice for both Kamaʻāina and long-established haole folks.
The base fabric we chose for our Upa Upa Shirt is a handsome slubby bark cloth-type woven textile reminiscent in texture of those vintage kitschy 1960’s/70’s cotton Hawaiian shirts.
This MF® garment is designed in California by Mister Freedom® and manufactured in Japan by Sugar Cane Co.
