The Japanese company Oricon is taking pre-orders for its exclusive soccer polo shirts from the One Piece Football Line from July 4 to August 2. The shirts come in five styles: Luffy, Zoro, Nami, Sanji, and Chopper. Each one has a character-specific version of the pirate symbol on its left chest, along with a small "One Piece Football Line" emblem tag on the back.
Coincidentally, Japan won its first 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup on Sunday.
Oricon is also selling collaborative One Piece shirts with the Hawaiian casual brand Sr'es Rainbow. Each of the two styles offered are made of jersey cloth. The first T-shirt has a picture of the character Chopper wearing colors of the Union Jack flag and holding a guitar. The shirt comes in grey, white and custard colors, and will cost 5,040 yen (about US$63).
The other style of Sr'es Rainbow shirt Oricon is offering has the Straw Hat Pirates' skull-and-crossbones design embroidered on the left chest and a plaid design across the bottom. This shirt will cost 7,140 yen (about US$90).
Oricon will be taking pre-orders for these shirts until August 9.
