Releasing tomorrow, Tuesday, December 22nd.
Tomorrow's release pays honor & respect to our at-times-forgotten military, more specifically the U.S. Navy, which has a deep-rooted history here in our islands for more than a century. Hawaii; Pearl Harbor to be precise, has been the strategic headquarters for U.S. Naval operations in the Pacific, because of the ideal location smack dab in the Pacific Ocean. Historical reports describe how an Agent of the United States for Commerce and Seaman arrived in the Port Of Honolulu as early as 1820, which was the beginning of Government / Naval business / relationships between the U.S. and Hawai'i.
The pack features a Kamehameha, accurately named U.S.S. Kamehameha, which is named after the U.S. Navy submarine with the same moniker (SSBN-642). The U.S.S. Kamehameha saw the majority of it's operation while stationed in Rota, Spain. These days, you can still view some of the submarine's parts at Pearl Harbor, but for the most part, the entire submarine has been decommissioned. The hat is dipped in navy blue (how appropriate!) with a gold Kamehameha and eyelets, including a gold rope which wraps around and gold leaves, normally associated with highranking Naval officers. The rest of the pack features a zip-up hoody (called Fox One) in gray with 49 navy blue stars and one gold star (representing Hawaii). The front features the words FITTED HAWAII / ALOHA SERVED DAILY wrapped around a gold 50. The t-shirt, titled "Intercept" (as in radar intercept) features a radar graphic, printed on white, with gold leaves around the radar blip. The radar, centered on the Hawaiian islands is printed in navy blue.
