We've got a new T shirt too.

Post by Bearbonesnorm » Wed May 13, 2020 6:32 pm

Alongside the new jerseys we also have a new T shirt and before someone starts banging on about elitism, just remember that anyone with a sense of humour will be able to buy one :wink:

Nice, is it bamboo?
Assuming my persona as a PITA, what about swapping the dagger for a tent peg?

Apart from the fact that I currently have sufficient bamboo tees (have I mentioned the fact we've had snow and highs of 5c yet?) that design actually does nothing for me.

It's not bamboo, 'tis simply a T shirt for wearing whenever.

I did try tent pegs Duncan but couldn't get it to look right, so added zombie bear to the hilt.

I was joking :grin: and I suspect it may not look like what it is..... You could then also add in a bear and woods type motto

If you're considering cap badges, how about this one...
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Lancers

...Royal Lancers?

Plenty of scope for zombie bear, tent pegs and a "...Or Lemon Drizzle Cake" motto.

"Mechanised reconnaissance", too (i.e. riding around the countryside, trying not to get spotted)...it works on so many levels :wink: .

You could replace the dagger with a front on shot of a bike maybe?

It’s all a bit too ‘walt’, maybe (as suggested above) a poo trowel or something else will be better

I like it, perfect colour for me too!

Walter Mitty, a character in a story that daydreams of sucess they never had.

Now used as derogatory slang for people who wear army surplus at the weekend or turn up at remmbrance services with medals they bought on ebay and were never actually in the army.

I was just thinking about this and I did think - perhaps peoples view of the design maybe influenced to some degree and in some cases by whether they know me or not. Those who do, may see it in a different light or context?

Dunno. I'll sweet talk Dee into trying the trowel and see what happens.

Probably for the same reason as me we are both ex army 👍 although I still like my idea of 'who bears grins' 🤣

No-go from me, sorry. Like not with a 10ft tent pole : ) Nicely crafted spoof image and coming from you Stuart, it's nothing I'm bothered by. Just thinking how someone might look wearing one in the wrong place or in front of someone to whom that logo may have all kinds of links.

I like it, it's funny and has that sort of double take/second glance appeal. My wife loves it and immediately said she wants one as well if they go ahead as is. I hope you don't change it too much Stu but I'm sure whatever you end up with will be good. :-bd
Edit, I see it's upsetting some of our ex service folk so maybe it would be better toned down a bit to broaden appeal? I still think it looks cool though and don't see why tongue in cheek humour would be disrespectful. YMMV.
