The folks at Insert Coin were kind enough to make time and do a short email interview with me and I got the answers back last week. :)
SHHS: The Silent Hill Historical Society and Lakeview Hotel tees have already released so I think the most burning question would have to be when the James Jacket is slated for release and any hints when pre-orders will open? I also saw on twitter that this jacket will have a limited run of only 100 any chance you guys will make another run more if they sell well?
The Sunderland jacket
and Radio Repairs tee
are now live – but the initial preorders are already pretty much sold out. All is not lost though, we are definitely making more – this is just the premier run and we know more people will want this. SH fans can expect another run in 2014.
SHHS: So far your newest designs have been primarily inspired by Silent Hill 2, any chance you guys will have designs inspired by any of the other titles? Like maybe a Brahms Police Department shirt or Lakeside Amusement Park gear?
IC: We’re always looking to add new designs, so we’ll almost certainly introduce more from the SH franchise over the next few years.
SHHS: Any chance the Toluca Lake Tourist Info shirt and hoodie will see a re-release or come back in your new line re-designed?
IC: The Lakeview Hotel is the spiritual successor of the original design for Toluca Lake – and we’ll definitely always be inspired by that area.
SHHS: It’s really cool that your newest line is officially licensed by Konami, did they approach you guys to start Silent Hill themed apparel?
IC: We’ve been speaking with Konami for a long time now and we’re proud to be working alongside them on so many great franchise – not just SH, but also Zone of the Enders, Contra, Castlevania and hopefully more in the future too.
SHHS: Do you guys accept fan designs/ideas for new shirts? If so what would be the best way to contact you guys?
IC: We always love hearing from our community on what they’d like to see – through Facebook and Twitter or emails – but our team have normally been working on a project for several months before it’s even mentioned, so they’re usually well and truly on the case.
SHHS: Any chance the Silent Hill line will expand to other accessories: bags, robes etc?
IC: We’re always looking to broaden every range, so it’s entirely possible that other products will launch in the future.
SHHS: Any hints on what sort of Silent Hill gear we can expect in 2014?
IC: Well, we’ll start with the Sunderland jacket and tees – and if they get plenty of support, we’ll definitely be hitting another round of designs very soon.
