A few years ago Appleseed designed competition shirts. Those are still available at this link:https://techwearusa.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=appleseed

I remember seeing those a few years ago, but can I ask a stupid question: what would you wear those for? Specifically; the competition part is obvious.

I wear mine when I do a promo event, like gun show booths,  etc. And at events.  They're eye catching

Mrs. Smith, Thank you!

FiremanBob, mine does not, which is interesting since I'm on my work computer. I wonder what the difference is...?

CMP games in Butner, Camp Perry, Local Shoots, that sort of thing that we would go to as a team sometimes. My shirt is different from what came up on that page. But they are eye catching.

I feel like I’d look like a Stock Car in one of those.

What's the sizing like on these?  If I wear a Large instructor polo, would I want a Large premier polo?

You'd be good with that,  T. But if memory serves there's also a size chart on the site to be sure.

Apologies for resurrecting an old thread - but I just decided to purchase one of these.  Didn't these shirts have the option to be personalized with our forum names?  I no longer see that field on the product page.  Perhaps I imagined it, but I know there are shoot bosses here in Michigan who have this jersey with their names on the sleeve...

It appears that name on the sleeve appears as an option on the polo, but not on the v-neck.
I recently purchased the standard v-neck as well as a custom long sleeved crew neck & was very pleased with the quality & appearance.

Oh hey, thanks William Wallace. You're right - I was clicking on the V-Neck and I didn't even want that to begin with.  Thanks for your prompt reply.
