Pokémon has teamed up with clothing company Original Stitch to create dress shirts featuring all 151 of the franchise's original lineup.
Growing up, we never envisioned that a day would come when we would get too old for the things we loved as kids. The inevitability that work, bills, and life in general would become our priorities rather than watching cartoons and playing with our friends. However, just because we have become adults doesn't mean we have to entirely leave our childhoods behind.
The continued and increased popularity of the Pokémon franchise is proof of that. The most recent video games from the Pokémon world, Let's Go Eevee and Let's Go Pikachu, are proof of that. Modern remakes of Pokémon Red and Blue, the games that captured the imagination of an entire generation. Their remakes are not only aimed at the kids of today, but also the kids of 20 years ago who have since grown up.
Many of us still love Pokémon so much that we want to express our fandom elsewhere. However, unlike the games, Pokémon-inspired fashion isn't always adult friendly. It almost definitely isn't workplace friendly. Well, until now. Original Stitch has teamed up with Pokémon to create some smart and unique dress shirts. Now you can continue your Pokémon fandom in the office while still remaining professional.
The best part of this promotion is that the shirts can be custom-made in a variety of different ways. You can choose any of the original 151 Pokémon, and even have more than one of them in designs unique to you. Plus, if all over print is a little much for you and you'd like to take a more subtle approach, your chosen Pokémon can be featured on the collar, cuffs, and/or pocket of your shirt and nowhere else.
Each custom made shirt will cost 10,000¥, a little more than $90, and will be available to order from late February. If you can't wait until then, the first 20 designs will be released for two days only from January 26-28. You can check out which 20 Pokémon will be a part of the early promotion by heading to SoraNews24 and order your shirts at Original Stitch's website.
