Papa Nui is the Axis Buster!

On every front Papa Nui is on the job, lending a hand to Uncle Sam.

When contracted by the War Production Authority to produce a work shirt for our Sailors in forest green, our Seabees and our Marines, the Papa was quick to the task. Referencing early 1942 ‘Reliance’, detailing  and adding a healthy dose of creative licence our Atoll’s golden cavalier created a chambray shirt of considerable merit. Made in the finest facilities of the Far East under the watchful eye of the production maestro John Lofgren, the Beach Head shirt features heavy duty specifications, triple stitched felled seams, double thick ventilated arm holes, chrysanthemum stitch ventilated yoke holes and indestructible  buttons, details that put this shirt right on the job , right in the fight!  With its oversized utility pocket and sweat resistant ‘Luckies’ pocket, the Beach Head shirt is the choice of our armed services.

Available in Japanese selvedge Indigo Chambray and custom coloured Sea Green Chambray, the Papa Nui Beach Head shirt is ready now in our PX store:

* For best results on the Beach Head chambray Papa Nui suggests a quick round with the washing machine and dryer before wearing for optimum fit and styling.

*Personal insight from the Papa: “I love vintage chambray and especially so because of the bizarre pocket combinations of early 20th century workwear, which I’ve incorporated into this design. Practicality and functionality is a whole other thing though, and so what I’ve chosen to do with mine is to unpick the pencil stitching to allow for more room in the chest pocket. The bar tack is left in place so it’ll still hold a pencil but the pocket bag will be freed up. ( bartack can also be removed carefully with a scalpel for optimum functionality) As for the cigarette pocket, if you’re a soft pack smoker ( Luckies preferably or the fabulous Japanese Hi Lites) then great, if not, well then I got nothing for you other than enjoy the detailing”.

My go to field shirt

This has become my go to when it comes to fishing, camping, or running errands around town. The fabric is top notch and the classic silhouette is exactly what I was after. The craftsmanship really shows and the extra details like ventilation and yoked shoulders is perfect for spending longer days on the river. I reach for this piece now every time I head out and it continues to out-perform my expectations. I nabbed the blue but now I reckon i need the sea green too!

Thanks Joe, this ones a fave of mine too when I get out into the wild.

Please create in women's sizing. I am going to try and have the shirt altered to fit. Love the look!

Darleen, with 50 more requests like yours I could! good luck with the tailoring.

What a great product! I couldn't be happier. In my experience and after months of research, this shirt is the only one that has the original features (details, colour, texture, Made in Japan etc.), but most importantly the right western – oriented fit, even for those like me, with a proud beer belly. It's true that you'll find many great products around, yes Australia is not around the corner - so you'll have to be patient and wait at least a couple of weeks to receive your order, but it's hard to beat this product, both in quality and price. I would advise everyone to check the size chart that John has included in the description (it's super accurate).
Thanks Papa!

Thank you for the review... we try harder!
