Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a button front, pullover, and tailored Spooner? We’re here to break down our three fits and the subtle differences that make each one unique.
Traditional Aloha Shirt Fit
There’s a reason we call it the classic – our traditional Aloha shirt fit is as comfortable as it is iconic. Our classic fit button-front shirt combines comfort, style, and impeccable tailoring to create a silhouette that’s timeless and versatile. Featuring a relaxed fit through the shoulder and chest with a box pleat and side vents that allow for freedom of movement and a straight hem that can be worn tucked in or out for a laid-back style and feel.
4-Button Popover Placket
A fan favorite among Spooner collectors, the pullover features the same details, comfort, and freedom of movement as the classic button front, with an easy-going 4-button popover placket only found in a Spooner. The pullover is the original Spooner fit – our founder Reyn McCullough was inspired by ivy-league menswear shirting and used these techniques to develop the first pullover shirt he designed.
Slightly Trimmer Through the Shoulder and Chest
A modern twist on the traditional Aloha shirt, our tailored fit has just the right amount of tapering for a fit that’s slightly trimmer through the shoulder and chest for a clean, contemporary look. Our tailored Aloha shirts feature two side pleats at the back yoke for added comfort, shorter sleeves, and a rounded shirttail for wearing tucked in or out.
