Does it need to be a Tshirt ?
Polo shirts are a lot more comfortable I find, and I can't get Himself and Son2 out of them too.

Polos also look a little smarter, more of a staff uniform thing, as comfortable as T's but you look less like you've just stepped out of the boonies. :D (says me sitting here in a green T-shirt) :rolleyes:

I detest Polo shirts - I much prefer Ts which are more versatile as they can be worn under heavy shirts in cool weather or on their own in hot weather.
Polos have the disadvantage of collar and buttons without the practicality of a full on shirt...
And I hate hoodies too - gimmee Ts please!

There are lots of versions of the evolution graphic around at present - I saw one on some other bushcraft company web shop too. It might win but I think it's a style that has already peaked... As regards to shape, Would it be possible to have lady fit shirts rather than just sacks aka t shirts? The positioning of logos on regular t shirts is also usually less good for the females amongst us, they either sit on 'the shelf' or have key items of the print at unfortunate locales, or they sit under the shelf and leave a distorted image (I know, female first world problem, but since this is a chance for something new..) 👚 Or 👕
 
BCUK small breast logo on a green polo with not all who wander are lost on rear.
Polo shirts are smarter and it would look as if everyone belonged to a well organised group , especially for group meets or asking permission for wild camping etc....

Just my humble opinion though.

Hmmm...could not all designs be made avalible? If the T's/hoodies/etc was purchased through a 3rd party (and bcuk earned % on all sales)?

Well, just a thought...

I really don't like tshirts.
One size/shape fits nobody very well :sigh: and it seems beyond the manufacturers to cut them square on the fabric.

I'll go with the majority though, buy big and just cut mine apart, alter and re-stitch.

It's all down to numbers, I'd like the most popular of them to be available but starting things off in a way that we can continue is what i'm aiming for right now. Yes there's sites that will handle nearly all the process but generally there's a minimum amount I need to be confident will sell, this is a good exercise for that, it gives me a good idea of quantities...

Hi Tony,

I would probably only be interested in those with the little logo on the left breast, but I much prefer the embroidered ones (and I assume this is a screen print?) as they last longer and particularly liked the lighter tan sort of colour. I would even mind paying a bit more.

I use clothes2order a fair bit, the setup fee for an embroidered logo is £5, implementing it £5 per t-shirt and have a good range of quality & types of t-shirt. I find them very good - maybe worth a look.

You could group buy from them to bring down the price instead of keeping stock. Obviously your call your choice! :)

Yes.. Sales estimates...dirty work, etc...

Could one of those sites be tempted to assume some of the risk (i.e. No need for (or low) minimum sales commitment) in exchange for some sponsorship package?
