Colors are great.

But some of us require a shirt pocket, so please let that feature return to the polo shirts.

  :sb:  just a reminder not everyone is 2x or smaller, some of us that help with AS grew to full size, and were not stunted in are youth. the 3x tee-shirt looks like a 1/2 shirt on me.  :sb:

Manufacturers don't always stock the sizes we need. The Store gets larger sizes when we can.

These look great!  I really appreciate that ladies styles have been made available, particularly in instructor gear.  Thanks for all you do!

Since we're sort of on the topic, is there any chance those black shirts we handed out for Patriots' Day will reach the store?

Our thought was we'd have a new Patriots Day shirt each year going forward, and that black was a one-time event.


What do Appleseeders think about that same shirt design in a color other than black, with a bit nicer fabric, for the Store? Did the design go over well?

They were a big hit in Palm Bay. Too bad not everyone got one.

Not having seen the design yet, I'd say "no" to putting them in the store. Leave them as a patriots weekend only shirt. But that's my $0.02

Here's my 2¢: I think having a special shirt for April 19th events is a good one. I wouldn't mind if it stays the same from year to year, with occasional redesigns. That would make supply & distribution much easier; there wouldn't be a risk off under-supplying (and not everyone getting a shirt) or over-purchasing (and throwing away a bunch of one-year-only shirts).

On a related note, are there plans for another printing run of these shirts? I know there were some students & instructors who weren't able to get one this year because of the shortage.

Thanks for working on all of this! The new stuff really looks good.

The design went over very well.  The new spun fabric was softer than the older Ts.  As far as sizing goes, they seemed a bit smaller, but you'd only notice if you're in-between sizes.

As far as having it in another color, I defer to others with better eyes for such things.

I LOVE the Patriot's Day shirts.  The fabric is much nicer than the "normal" t's.  Wish all of our T's could be this fabric.

It would have been nice to be able to read the whole back of the shirt,   But then Maybe it was only Me.

No, it wasn't just you.  There was much head scratching over it around here.

Are the red and green colors intended to match the Instructor and Shoot Boss hat colors? While I like both colors as colors, my only concern about them would be that the colors could be confusing to both shooters and instructors as to the rank/position (whichever term is preferred) of the wearer. Did I miss something there?
