Is there special clothing for autistic kids?

I have a career working with a 14 year old kid who experiences autism and also anger issues.
When we go to stores he will put things in his pockets non chalant.

As a joke yesterday I said to his mom, "You guys should sew his pockets shut" because he likes to steal things and put them in his pockets.
She laughed and then said, "That's actually a great idea. Ralph, you might have started a clothing line for autistic kids."
Then she texted her daughter about the idea.

Is there already clothing like this for autistic kids?

  • I'm not sure. My son is autistic, he does NOT have this issue. I'm not sure if its a common enough issue to warrant a clothing line.

    But for that kid? Might be a good idea.

  • No, but there are clothes with fake pockets, like sewn up pockets.
    I hate those pockets 😒 they always have this tiny little gap, so I end up squeezing something in there like money or a lighter, then I can't get it back out again so I have to undo the stitching and open the pocket up anyway.

  • I don't know why it would be specifically for people on the autistic spectrum, but clothes are made without pockets.
