VAKA #007 : "OPIHI (kaiju)"
I really like this shirt based on the local Opihi shelfish. Some of my favorite childhood memories are of climbing rocky shorelines with a "borrowed" dinner table knife scrapping opihi off the rocks in between sets of waves. Slip that blade under the opihi after the wave recedes, but before they suction tight. I don't love eating everything that tastes like the sea, but cooking upside downed fresh collected opihi on a beach fire dropping a dollop of garlic butter in each little hot pot is an experience worth having.
This t-shirt is everything you've dreamed of and more. It feels soft and lightweight, with the right amount of stretch. It's comfortable and flattering for both men and women. • 100% combed and ring-spun cotton (heather colors contain polyester) • Fabric weight: 4.2 oz (142 g/m2) • Shoulder-to-shoulder taping • Side-seamed
