New Holiday Merch: Limited Edition Gal Pal Holiday Sweater and Golden Gal Pal Hoodies!

Happy holidays you guys! We made a couple of things for your gay shopping needs. Here they are:

The Limited Edition Gal Pal Holiday Sweater

Gal Pal Holiday Sweater
I’m really into dumb holiday shirts/sweaters. For every single day the week before and after Christmas every year, I wear the same awful semi-turtle neck I got at K-Mart that’s three sizes too big for me. I love it so much. So this year when we were thinking of what to stock the store with, I got really excited about making an ugly holiday sweater thing with a gay theme: GAL PALS OF COURSE.
The design is made up of these tiny little things that give the sweater that “knitted” look. And the sweater is made of lightweight terry is perfect for layering, as evidenced by my white collared shirt or Brittani’s awesome chambray shirt underneath.

More importantly, we only printed 100 sweaters so these will go quick and they are only around for this holiday season. So snatch em up while you can!

A Note On Sizing: This sweater is a mens sweater, so I recommend ordering a size down than usual. I usually wear an extra small in mens, so the small fits me with some extra room.

Gal Pal French Terry Pullovers

This pullover is like being hugged by sunshine. The colors are pretty great and we can finally say we have more than just black and grey things in our store.

The “Gal Pal” imprint is navy and white, and the fabric is soft french terry.
It also has thumb holes!

A Note On Sizing: This sweater is unisex. Most of the stuff in our store is unisex, so if you’ve ordered from us before, the sizing will be pretty typical. But for those who need a description: the sizing will be larger than typical women’s shirt, but slimmer than a mens shirt. I’m wearing a small (and usually do) but could honestly go for a medium. It’s a hoodie after all.

There’s a size chart provided for everything in the product images in our store.

    • I haven’t had a thumb holes jumper since I cut them into my school uniform (my Mum LOVED that). I have missed that warm hand, snuggled up feeling like eggs miss bacon.

  1. GAL PAL JUMPER IN GREEN OR NAVY PLEASE. I can’t wear maroon since it was our schools P.E. kit and I have solemnly sworn off it since.

  2. THUMB HOLES! Yes! These look amazing! Brittani looks amazing!

    As an aside – I love the store and totally understand your limitation on stock etc – but as a big-boobed lady, “unisex” t-shirts that fit my front are always too big in the shoulders, sleeves, etc., so it’s like my dearest dream that someday you will also stock tees and sweatshirts in (what they call) “women’s” sizes (scoopier necks, more room in front and around the hips, so we don’t have to size up and then roll sleeves, cut necks etc.)

    Until then, I modded the heck out of my scissoring t-shirt and I love it!

  3. I just ordered the holigay sweater and I’m completely certain it will change my life for the better.

    • i actually could feel it in my bones “i think wasteunit’s life changed today” and then i just had to check this thread to be sure

    • I’ve been wanting to name my apartment that I share with my girlfriend the “Gal Palace” BUT SHE DOESN’T WANT TO. How lame is that??

    • Gal Palace exists in LA. It’s my friend’s house with a stage inside. We host queer mixers and feminist comedy nights and queer sock hops with swing dancing and all sorts of craft events. Mal Blum has played there and says, and I quote, that it’s the “coolest venue in LA”.

      Want to move here/in with me yet?

      • omg! i stayed at gal palace when i was visiting l.a. . it is truly great. one of the cats kept licking my toes. everyone who lives there is so nice. (hi effie + co)

  4. Yay! Just bought myself that snazzy Gal Pal holiday jumper to go with the Gal Pal crew I got the other month, now everyone will know I’m a non-het no matter the weather lmao

  5. OH MY GOD.
    Autostraddle, I don’t know how you understand me so well, but I love it.

  6. You have outdone yourself, Alex and company. Oh my, how can I resist a hoodie with thumbholes?! Definitely sizing up. I want to swim in it.

  7. As someone whose skin is almost as white as the detail on that sweater, yellow is not the best color for me. Any thoughts about making one in green or another color?

  8. I think the size chart is wrong on the yellow sweatshirt? At least I really hope it is, because the chest measurements only go up to 24.5″!
