NATIVE HAWAIIAN DESIGN
The Fishing for the Men design originates from a playful ʻōlelo noʻeau (Hawaiian proverb).
“Aia i ka huki ulua.”
“Gone to haul ulua fish.”
The story behind the proverb relates the ulua (trevally) to a handsome man. The proverb says you have, “gone to haul ulua fish” and implies that you have “gone to get a man.” Wear this shirt to subtly let the room know that you (the wearer) are interested in the men.
The ulua fish is a highly prized reef fish for shore fishermen due to its intelligence, power and fighting spirit. The fish is also a delicious and popular fish to eat.
