A palaka is a two-color yarn-dyed plaid, traditionally a combination of white with blue, brown, or red as the second color. Our Palaka "Nui" (meaning large/many/great) doubles the size of the plaid and combines white with at least two other colors -- often a combination of other traditional palaka colors. The fabric also is printed instead of yarn dyed, allowing for a reverse print that has a relaxed, sun-faded look.

What is "Western Fit"?
Not too boxy and not too fitted. Designed to be worn untucked. If you're between sizes we recommend sizing up.
Find your perfect fit:
The chest measurement is taken 1" below the armhole. Measure under your arm at the broadest part of your chest for a full chest measurement.
Measure the circumference of your neck with at least two fingers of room. Round up to the nearest half inch.
Measure from the base of neck at center point, where your collar meets the yoke, over the shoulder and down to the wrist.
