Re:what do you guys think? - 2011/05/25 08:27 Well......keep in mind I'm more of an olde school type of guy. Your shirts look way too tight, and logos are on the front. Most guys here are going to want looser, comfortable shirts. And alot of us like logos on the back, not the front. And we like plain colors, white, black, gray, some red.

Re:what do you guys think? - 2011/05/26 06:37 I dig the yellow & the green.

Not sure I understand the logo.

Re:what do you guys think? - 2011/05/26 08:13 thanks guys for the input. the shirts aren't really super tight.. I always wear baggy or tall tee's and these are definitely smaller then those put still a good sized tee.

And the logo is getting made over. These are just a few sample shirts we're testing printer companies out with.

Thanks guys!

And thanks again for the input man

Re:what do you guys think? - 2011/05/26 23:37 I suggest you try collared graphic tees. Adding a collar with a button or two makes it suitable for work in more office environments than a simple round or ve-neck tee by itself.

Also, it looks like you're using cheap, stiff, heavy materials. Nobody likes an uncomfortable or too-hot tee-shirt. Check out some blended materials to get a better-feeling shirt.

Overall, you need to aim for utility and comfort in men's clothing. Most hetero guys don't buy shirts very often, and you can get cheap tee's by the truckload for free--or really cheap--so you need to have a quality product to differentiate yourself.

If I'm just going surfing in the AM, I'm probably not even going to bother with the shirt. I just pull on the wetsuit halfway (or just boardies if it's warm), ride down to the break, then zip up and paddle out. Bringing along a shirt is just one more piece of junk I have to remember to pick up after my session. If I do take a shirt, it's because I have to shower off at the beach and head to work afterward. Then, I'll bring an appropriate button-down or maybe a collared tee if I think my boss will let me get away with it.

Edit: Oh, and drop/change the "mint" it looks like a hospital tech's gown. I don't want to go walking around looking like I'm a "scrubs" extra.
