I like the idea of the camp work shirt. Although, going to play devils advocate here.

If we choose to go that route with the shirts the cost does go up, For a lot of people that is a good amount of money that would be spent on shirts. Not saying it wont be worth it but once you start getting up into the $50 dollars mark it just adds on to weekend cost. The main reason i bring this up is we might be segmenting people just based on Tshirt Costs. I like the idea of keeping costs down as much as possible so we can encourage more people match during the weekend activities.. At the same time we want everyone to be happy

I like the Black and Red options
dark colored Tie die not bad as a second.

Thread necro here - has there been any decision on the shirts? I'd like to know because whatever I get takes some lead time. It it gets tight, shipping can cost more than the shirts.

My bad for not keeping tabs on this. The winners of the poll were the Black and Red and the Blue Spiral. That being said, several people have brought up good points about our shirt selection for this year.

I think it's a little late in the game to make big changes like going to the snazzy bowling shirt ideas, but that is something that we could definitely discuss at PDXLAN 26 for future PDXLAN events. Although, with the increased costs of the bowling shirts, we might want to just pick up 1.

Gov brings up a good point about the special shirt designs not being available in all sizes which breaks up the group look.

Geekgurl brings up another good point about being able to wear the shirts after the event.

These are all things that I'll try to keep in mind for next year, but, for now, we're just waiting on input from Joker on end cost for the chosen shirts.

Thank you Peon for bringing up those points.

What i need to know is if anyone is dead set on getting the Blue Spiral Tie-dye shirt. I'll admit it seemed like a good idea on paper to me, but after talking to many of you about it, it's seems like no one wants to be the voice of dissent... so I will.

If the 7 of you who voted for the Blue Spiral Tie-dye shirt PM me so we can discuss this, please do so. Otherwise, I vote we go for a solid color (even the same shade of blue is fine) going forward. Mind you, PDXLAN26 is 2.5 months away. We need to get the shirts ordered now so joker has enough time to get the silk-screening done before the event.

I'd like to get this thread wrapped up by May 8th so we can get it finalized, everyone happy (or at least content) and swing into PDXLAN as the kickass group we always are.

one more thing to note, I don't know where Joker is on his house purchase/moving/etc. so much of this is on if he can get it done in time too... so we have that to think about. Joker, what say you?

So hopefully that counts for everyone and we won't have to worry about breaking up the color for the group. The quote was in response to a request for children's sizes, though.

Personally, I like the Blue Spiral and voted for it, but it's not a deal breaker one way or the other. I wear all the PDXLAN shirts on a regular basis as undershirts cause they're just so comfy, but I can see why you wouldn't wear some of the more festive ones on a regular basis.

Here is my input for the ordeal...

Tie-dye vs the Camp Shirt :

There is a handful of people who DO not want either... Some for fashion reasons and some for money reasons... I would say we need to scrap both at this moment... There is a sense of community here within WVG and Pride of who we are so I think it would be nice to go back to shirt choices that reflect a group feel with out making people feel uncomfortable.

By way of sizes being available for all... This is NOT true. Yes he can get sizes for kids, but we would like to make sure Gov for example can get his shirts ordered in a decent time period so Shipping doesn't cost him a arm and a leg. Also asking him to match some of the crazier options for shirts seems very silly.

I have no problem if this tie-dye kick need to happen and if it does then the black/red one is the ONE tie-dye there should be... It is not completely out of the box and people can feel like they still have their tie-dye. As for the Blue Spiral. THIS one I feel will be pushing people out of the desire to want to get the shirt. I have heard from quite a few people not real pleased with this option asking if they "Had to get it"

We would like to arrive looking like an amazing massive mob of color. However we don't want people to feel uncomfortable and dreading the representation of the group.

Another thing to consider with the blue tie-dye is how well with that show the screen print and names and what not... Seems like it would just fade away in to the business of the shirt.

*Shrugs*

I guess at this point we need to have some input from the SHIRT GURU... Joker... Please let us know what you are thinking, can we change to a more reasonable option!!!

looks like you guys have it figured out. I believe we should do one Tie dye and one solid color.

If I can help anyone let me know.

Reading and I did not see that this thread had been updated.

I like the bowler shirts and yes, it would be more expensive. I have been moving and really dropping balls, so I apologize.

It might be a solid idea to wear a previous shirt from a previous PDX as a throwback and mull the options over a bit.

I have a T shirt in every color at this point and though I do like the mass appeal, we might be coming to the end of the usefullness of a Shirt each year.

What do people think about Gold on black using real gold foil and not mention which PDX it's for, and a bowler style shirt next year? More planning will yield better results at this point, I think.

But I can do..
I am cando man.

I think waiting to possibly do the Camp shirt next year would be wise... Allow people to save up and do some better pre-planning for that.

By way of Throw back... I have some concerns with that. First of all we Kinda do that already. Everyone wears previous years shirts on Monday and we come in like a Rainbow of WVG. Secondly we have some new comers this year. There are at least 3 people who have never been nor would have Retro shirt to participate in this.

I am down for the black with gold writing. I would then like to have one tasteful color shirt to go with that.

Maybe we can do the black with gold and run a last minute poll with 2-3 color choices. Scrap ALL the Tie-dye options. Yes, no, maybe?!?!?

No matter what we do we need to pick soon so Gov can get his order in to allow for time on shipping with out jacking up the cost on him too!!!

The 3 or so can become a newb and get their wings.. I don't think that's a barrier, unless you do.

I'll find out about Gold and let you know.

No, Joker can't. The last summer PDXLAN i made I had to ORDER shirts from another place and ship to Joker. This was for the black and red T-shirts. His vendor (Gildan) goes to 5x for most colors. I'm bigger than that. I'll have to order a shirt for the PDXLAN shirt as well. Not many places can deal with a person my size. Simple as that.

The all sizes was referring to a question about being able to get child sizes... Talked with Joker last night and we are working out the kinks here and will hopefully have you an answer SOON for your shirt order Gov!!!!

it's only that when people see "Joker can get all sizes" I get nervous. No negativity here. I know I'm "out of the norm" in size, and just like "one size fits all", "he can get any size" makes me twitch. Thanks for helping out with this Geekgurl!

Okay, I confirmed that I can get Gold foil names heat pressed. I can re-work the logo to do it in foil as well or I can do the chest logo in ink and keep the fade. The fade will not be as clear as the foil, and will fade over washing. The foil might eventually come off. Those are options, though.
Here's a quick mockup, it would be goldier, though

Yeah, I didn't have a gold gradient on my machine here at work so I used a default copper one.

If we like that, we can do that on black and then white on the other?
