Free mini pouches too.
A new collection of patterns has trickled out for a limited time on Original Stitch’s Pokémon line while a more permanent regional collection will debut next month.
Right now, four special patterns are available celebrating Pokémon Sword and Shield and the latest film Secrets of the Jungle. The patterns include Shiny Celebi, Zarude, Skwovet (pictured above), and Cramorant with each of them sporting looks that might fit the Hawaiian style shirt over the conventional dress shirt options or polos. Those patterns are available for order until the end of February.
The three starter Pokémon of the Galar region are also included as new pattern releases beginning with a Japanese rollout now. A worldwide release will follow early next month. Treecko’s patterns is very Canadian plaid, Torchic appears on a fire red backdrop, while Mudkip lazes about over idyllic waters with Lotad in tow.
To celebrate two years of Pokémon Shirts, a new collection will drop February 27th, featuring creatures from the third generation of games and its Hoenn region. Original Stitch will release the Hoenn starter designs early to promote the batch and they’ve already revealed the appearance of a number of patterns including for Spinda, Gulpin, Wurmple, Skitty, and their respective evolutionary lines.
The Hoenn collection will join the existing collections for the Kanto and Johto regions as well as the nine basic colour options. Mixing and matching fabrics is the name of the game and representing another full region’s worth of Pokémon adds countless new ways to customize your dream shirt.
While the company has been re-purposing its scrap material to make and sell Pokémon masks, it’s now exploring other items that can use its excess materials, in this case pouches. For a limited time and while supplies last any purchase of a shirt will land the purchaser a complimentary pouch made of two random fabrics. It’s a cool way to make sure no scraps go to waste and any bonus is nice for shirts that can cost well over $100 USD.
Original Stitch’s designs aren’t cheap, with shirts starting around $85 a pop, and as of now are only available in Japan, United States, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, India, Indonesia, United Kingdom, Spain, Germany, Italy, France, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Shipping delays are common right now.
