Waikk’s glory years have made their way into the spring collections of island men’s brands. Under his hip Aloha Sunday label that’s about to explode in Asia, former pro surfer-turned-clothier Kahana Kalama has turned out swim trunks with a cut fit for an old Hollywood star on vacation at Halekulani, now celebrating its 30th anniversary. Even off the beach, stay sharp with a clean white shirt from Reyn Spooner’s modern collection—tucked in, of course. And with some classic shades from the Valley Isle’s own Maui Jim, the look becomes picture-perfect.
