The Hawaiian Club
One interesting issue raised by the Hawaiian Club relates to the Kamehameha Statue – an ‘error’ in how the King is dressed. If you look closely at the Kamehameha Statue, there is an error in the arrangement of the sash. It is impossible without two sashes: a long one from malo front over the shoulder and down to the ground, and a short, separate belt.
Traditionally, a sash is worn by first draping the sash over the left shoulder. Then the remaining length is wrapped around the waist and over the front flap of the sash to around the back, fed behind the part over the shoulder, and the remaining hangs down in the back (at knee length.) After that, you put the cape on over it all. On the statue, the sash is over the cape.
