Stereotyped Shirts launches their pilot collection!
MANILA, November 22 – A t-shirt brand built out of love for music and typography enters the market with their fresh pilot collection featuring international band Train.
Stereotyped is spearheaded and managed by Jonver David, Hanna Samson, and Ella Coronado, three college friends who have just passed the nursing board exam. “We were fresh out of college and we were trying to find something to be busy with while waiting for a job,” Hanna shared. After a fortuitous train ride came an idea what now has become Stereotyped.
Stereotyped is a portmanteau of the words stereo and typography, which represents the owners’ fascination of music and design trend. “Being music lovers ourselves, we want our brand to be aligned to our interests and hobbies,” Ella said. “We were inspired to start a unique type of stylish, yet affordable, t-shirts featuring striking song lyrics interpreted into original graphic designs,” Jonver added. 
For their pilot collection, the brand welcomes international sensation Train here in Manila. Hit songs Hey Soul Sister and If It’s Love were graphically immortalized in comfortable unisex t-shirts in extra small, small, medium, and large sizes. The Train Collection is available for an affordable introductory price of PhP 270 (If It’s Love) and PhP 290 (Hey Soul Sister). The pilot collection will be exclusively available at their Facebook online shop.
Celebrate music through a clever play of words and imagery! Be free to wear the soundtrack of your life! Learn more about Stereotyped shirts by logging on to their Facebook page (, Twitter (@wearstereotyped), and blog (
