The 'pop up' T shirt shop.

Post by Bearbonesnorm » Fri Dec 11, 2020 1:15 pm

I'm just ironing out the details at present but very shortly there will hopefully be an option to smarten yourself up and buy yourself (or someone you don't like) a T shirt or two. It works on the principle of a pop-up shop where you can order directly from the manufacturer, who will print your shirt and post it to you directly in a matter of a day or two. It's a good option given that there's no minimum order requirements, I don't have to herd many cats and people receive their stuff very quickly. It also has the benefit that designs can turn over on a fairly regular basis, so if you don't like one, the might like the next one.

There's a couple of designs in the offing at present but I wondered whether anyone had any ideas for a bikepacking / cycle related design they'd perhaps like to see? Slogans are particularly good.

I'd like another blue bearbones t-shirt with the shaded tree landscape and a little tent in the foreground as I wear if far too often and it's wearing out. Mine and Cat's favourite T-shirt.

Or some slogan reminding people that the west highland way isn't the hardest, gnarliest route in Scotland...just watched the WHW fastest know time wahoo film thingy on youtube, bet you couldn't tell.

I've been looking for a t shirt with the hazchem icon for irritant as used by our great leader. I once met Steve Makin (singletrack contributor and occasional poster on here)at his place of work at the Carrington petrochemical complex and he was wearing one but I forgot to ask where he'd got it.

That sounds eminently sensible Stu :-bd

Will they be doing bamboo T's? I hope so as they're my favourites.

Someone (not me, no talent) should come up with a good panda design e.g. "roll out the panda cannon". THat'll confuse the living dickens out of the unaware /uninitiated / uninterested :wink:

Like the puddle drinking, ditch sleeping one. Got to be something massively obscure so you get funny looks in the pub and then bask in a glow of knowing stuff that others don't.
