Stitch’s Supports Willie Nile to Raise Money for Parkinson’s Research
It’s the season of giving, and Stitch’s is working on some exciting developments, like the Stitch’s LTD by Willie Nile limited edition pants. Collaborating with American rock ÔÇÿn’ roll legend Willie Nile, Stitch’s have produced just 120 of these pants, with all money from sales – not just profits, but all $200 of the retail price – being donated to the Light of Day Foundation, which supports Parkinson’s Disease research and treatment.
The Stitch’s LTD by Willie Nile pant features a proprietary denim blend in Stitch’s darkest new wash, Black Hawk; button fly with all black hardware, and a branded all black leather back pocket patch. Typical of Stitch’s pants, the personalization continues in the interior of the pants. Lyrics from Willie Nile’s American Ride song are screened onto the inside of the wearer’s front right pocket as daily inspiration to enjoy the journey of life. The interior also features a stamp of authenticity certifying the pant as one of the only 120 produced. The Stitch’s LTD by Willie Nile pants come exclusively in the Barfly fit, a slim cut straight leg silhouette, and include a collectable hang tag commemorating the Stitch’s and Willie Nile collaboration as well as an individual Certificate of Authenticity personally signed by Willie Nile.
The partnership is timed to coincide with Nile’s January 2014 performance at Light of Day’s signature event in Asbury Park, NJ, that in past years has featured Nile performing with artists like Bruce Springsteen, Michael J. Fox and others. The pants are available now, but with only 120 in production, sizes won’t be restocked and can be purchased on a first come, first served basis. You can find out how to purchase them online here.
“I want to give people who can’t come to the shows an opportunity to support a great cause and get involved,” said Willie Nile. “To be able to offer fans a unique, stylized pair of pants I designed with Stitch’s and have all the purchase money, not just the net proceeds, go to the cause is extraordinary. This will be my 15th year performing at Light of Day since its inception in 2000, so having my fans be able to help make a difference in this new way is exciting.”
“It is fantastic to work with Willie because he is very in tune with how each subtle detail works off the other, and combining details to make truly original pieces with incredible quality is something Stitch’s has focused on for years,” said Carolina Silva, head designer for Stitch’s. “Getting involved with the Light of Day Foundation to support the cause is something that resonates with fans of Stitch’s and fits with who we are as a brand. It’s always exciting to bring interesting ideas and people together to make a real-life positive impact, and we’re proud to have Stitch’s LTD by Willie Nile pants be a part of that process.”
