The tees are out for a limited time during this trial run in Men's/Unisex, Women's and Youth, and are available by ordering online here through Ricart.
“The YPQ tees were designed by my partner Nora Mickee at StudioPTBO, and I’ve been working closely with the community-minded Matt D'Agostini from Ricart to make this a reality,” adds Morton. “I would love to see these tees fly off the shelves so to speak.”

The Peterborough Petes announced at an exclusive fan appreciation event at the Junction Nightclub on Wednesday evening (January 23rd) that the team will return to wearing maroon and white jerseys beginning next season.
The white jerseys will feature maroon panels and piping, while the maroon jerseys will feature white panels and piping. Both jerseys will feature a single-colour logo and a Peterborough Lift Lock patch on each shoulder. The current black jersey, with cream and maroon accents, will remain as the team’s third jersey.
“While our current jersey design was well received when it was unveiled ahead of the 2014-15 season, fans, players and staff have continued to express their fondness for our traditional colours,” says Petes President Dave Pogue. “We’re excited to continue to pay homage to our storied history, but with a modern design.”
Season ticket holder Patrick McAuley had this to say in a tweet…
The Petes say they decided to make the jersey announcement now for their fans before they encounter jersey designs in manufacturer sales materials for the upcoming season.
The Petes also have longstanding and successful partnerships in place with the Peterborough Minor Hockey Council and Peterborough Hockey Association that they wanted to be aware of the jersey change.
The Petes don’t require all minor hockey teams to change to the new jersey design, but those that wish to change need to know with enough lead time to order new jerseys.
Mike Watt, owner of PTBO Northern Originals, a heritage-based clothing brand focused on local pride in Peterborough and the Kawarthas, was ecstatic when a member of Neil Young's crew dropped in to purchase his Omemee shirt on Friday (December 1st).
"An assistant came in and grabbed them for Neil and Daryl [Hannah, his partner] on Friday," Watt tells PTBOCanada of his T-shirt line, which is available online and at his store Flavour Fashion in downtown Peterborough.
"We actually hid an 'N Y' in the design—his initials—as a tribute to him," Watt tells PTBOCanada.
Young may not have worn the Tee for his special concert Friday night in his home town of Omemee, but it was a cool moment the entrepreneur Watt won't soon forget.
"I have to be honest—when we developed the design for the shirt we always hoped to get one to Neil," he says. "We're huge fans and want to pay tribute in some small way. This was special."

[UPDATE: Here is what's opening in that location now.]
We reported back in June that downtown clothing store Skirt was temporarily closed. They indicated on the front door that they would be reopening August 15th, but that date has long come and gone. Now the Skirt logo sign has been removed and the store is looking sadly vacant. Their phone lines are no longer working either. Anyone know its status or what is going in here now?
