While the dress code for the North Shore is t-shirts, tank tops, board shorts, and bikinis there are a few reasons to throw on a button-up. You may want to enjoy a glass of wine while watching the sunset at Haleiwa Beach House. Perhaps you have an evening planned at Turtle Bay Resort which you’ll conclude with a mai-tai or two at Lei Lei’s. Or you may be in town for a wedding and joining your party over at Ke Iki Beach Bungalows. All of the above can indeed call for Hawaii’s most formal of attire – the aloha shirt. But while there are no shortages of this particular garment on the island you’re looking for contemporary fashion over kitsch. This is where Kahala comes to the rescue. Kahala “The Original Aloha Shirt Since 1936” has a shop at Haleiwa Store Lots where they sell stylish modern-fit Hawaiian shirts for men, women, and even keiki (kids). Not only does it offer fashion-function, their clothes make for perfect souvenirs that you can wear back on the mainland when you find yourselves pining for an evening on the island once more.
