We still don’t know the exact release date of One Piece Movie: Red in North America. And so, we’ve been relegated to watching both the reactions to the film and the parade of delightfully bizarre promotional merchandise from afar on social media. (My favorite ? Peach John’s Red Inspired Lingerie and UTA hoodie – that you box ship to USA.) Luckily, high-end custom-fit California-based shirt company, Original Stitch, lets us latecomers have a little fun. They released a line of One Piece Movie: Red-inspired wear, which is only available for a limited time.
You might recognize the “Original Stitch” brand from their impressive range of Pokemon shirts or – even more likely if you clicked through this article – their previous One Piece shirt releases. Basically, the company provides nerds like me with high-end clothes that look super cool, but actually have personality. Or simply with a fun palette of patterns to scroll through (LABOON!!).
They call the Red “memorial” line, which is one of the many ways you know the line has only been running for a few months. There are special tags and buttons and everything. The newest addition to the One Piece Shirts range is the jacket, which you can choose a liner for – a good choice for the stylish but shy nerd. There’s also a new, non-customizable shirt that features a rather intimidating close-up of Shanks’ scarred eye.
But the classic quirky stitch experiment is to choose a basic pattern, then decorate your shirt with different patterns on the collar, cuffs, and pocket. In order to facilitate this experience in the Red fashion, there is a new line of Red-inspired designs that you can mix and match as you wish (with each other and with pre-existing designs). The obvious highlight? MINI BEPO. Outside knowing the secrets inside Red, I have no idea what this “mini” company means. But I’m here for anything and everything Bepo.
Just beware that all customizations cost extra and the base shirt is already $100. In other words, these aren’t cheap. It’s a nice shirt, though – I can tell you that from experience.
Points of origin One Piece Movie: Red the models are available until September 30. You can see details on their website. However, that deadline is probably before you can see the movie! Alas, therein lay the woes of commercialism. But at least we had some really good ones Red related episodes in the anime.
