New summer styles have been added to the Pokémon Shirts presented by Original Stitch family. Building on the polo shirt “refresh” launch in May, a new style of polo shirts is available to customize – the Pokémon Polo Shirts Sport edition. 

 

The Pokémon Polo Shirts Sport features heat-blocking fabric, new collars, and embroidery options, which include the 24 partner Pokémon from the known regions of the Pokémon world.

For the new sport polos, fans have their pick of white, black, and navy quick-dry, or they can opt for [New York and London artists Craig & Karl’s] Pikachu or Piplup [patterns] for their print fabric. For embroideries, they can select from 172 embroideries available across the polo line.

In terms of embroidery placement, fans can now customize their right sleeve, in addition to their left chest, front, and back. For collar options, they can up their sporty look with a ribbed collar or a Henley collar, including lines that are changeable with different colors. Fans looking to celebrate Pokémon’s 25th anniversary can complete the look with Silver Poké Ball buttons and an anniversary tag.

 

 

The Polo Shirts Sport edition start at $110 and you can order them at Original Stitch’s customization site. Currently, orders will be shipped in five weeks (depending on the number of customizations ordered). 

Plus, the site is starting to add the next release of Hoenn designs! The third wave of Hoenn designs is themed after the ocean, meaning it’ll be filled with Water-type Pokémon. Currently, the 32 new patterns are unavailable when customizing shirts, masks, and more, but you can preview them on the shirts’ design page

 

 

Pokémon Shirts presented by Original Stitch currently offers over 200 Pokémon-inspired patterns that can be used to make shirts, polo shirts, masks, bandanas, and aprons in a variety of styles.
