Hello there! My suggestion is to make a way for players to get the purple shorts again for the new pants recipe. I am a completionist and ill cry when the switch gets updates and I cant get these fashionable pants. I was originally going to use the spawn items 'bug' but i noticed it was patched, which I understand. Once nintendo finds out theres no going back. Maybe make a rare event of some kind to make it possible to get the purple shorts again. That would be awesome, love this game by the way!
