More yellow shirts on the way

Legacy Phuket Gazette

BANGKOK (The Nation): Clothing manufacturers have been asked by the government to produce 500,000 more yellow shirts, commemorating HM King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s diamond jubilee, to meet huge demand from the public.

The shirts will be available at supermarkets including Big C, Makro and 7-Eleven stores nationwide.

Siriphol Yordmuangcharoen, Director General of the Department of Commerce, said he has met with 15 major garment makers capable of producing the yellow shirts to the right standard.

Recently a shortage of the garments, worn in honor of HM The King, caused the market price to double from 200 baht to 400 baht or more, and many people had complained that the prices were getting out of hand.

Prices of the new shirts will range from 200 baht to 250 baht.

K. Siriphol said some shirts would be available by next week and shops selling them have promised not to mark up the price. Although the initial run will be 500,000, more could be made if demand again outstrips supply.
