There is no shortage of places to buy aloha-inspired attire on Oahu, but far too many stores hock tacky or downright tawdry wear that even Glenn Quagmire wouldn’t be caught dead in.
Recognizing a demand for contemporary aloha shirts and tops, Roberta Oaks opened up a modern boutique establishment in the Honolulu Arts District. Her bright and airy shop on Nuuanu Avenue offers a fun yet distinguished selection of men’s and women’s Hawaiian clothing, accessories and more. Taking a page from other independent brands found throughout the island, this retailer releases exclusive limited-edition aloha shirts each week, creating feverous anticipation from fans (which you will soon be).
