Since I have 6 Larrivee shirts at this time, I'd be out, too, unless it was an interesting new design (or was a regular denim or polo shirt instead of a T-shirt this time).

Designs using any Larrivee logo, would, I believe, need the approval of the Larrivee's...

I bet "the usual suspects" would help out with that if the rest was together. 

It takes a fair amount of work to get things coordinated...  get people to agree on what they want, find a vendor, arrange quantities of sizes, colors, styles, etc, put out the chunk of $$ or collect ahead of time, arrange shipping, etc.

All that said, I'd most likely be out of this go round.

I'm thinking, per approval, the Celtic JCL logo by itself on anything other than a black shirt would sell plenty. I'd take a couple

I'm in! Just keep us posted on the design. Last weekend I ran across Matt out in town while I was wearing my Collings T shirt, it was to say the least.. Awkward.

I may have to get in on the next purchase. I'm not picky, anything Larrivee will suite me fine. Reckon someone will have to stand up to the plate. Anyone???

I'd be down for that.  That design between the shoulder blades would look nice.  V-neck is 'in' right now though I imagine that would limit our # of interested participants much more than a crew.
I'd like it to be a decent material and cut.  Would be a shame to do this a and have it on a boxy, cheap shirt.

The biggest roadblock is always the same:   getting enough members to agree on a design, style, color(s) etc.   If there are not enough orders, the cost per shirt is just too high.    I have headed up the first two forum t-shirt projects and was responsible for processing orders, getting them made, collecting the money,  and shipping the shirts to everyone who placed an order.
I can tell you that it is way more work than you can imagine to keep all this straight and make sure everyone gets the right size, color, etc. and that they are shipped properly worldwide.
You should also know that we cannot use the Larrivee logo without written permission from the Larrivee family which I did obtain for the previous shirt projects.  Remember that these are not Larrivee guitar shirts.... they are Larrivee forum shirts.  We are not in competition with the Larrivee company for product sales. 

It seems like there is some interest in doing another order.   But I don't see much agreement on any of the details at this point.  Hash it out.   Come up with some sort of agreement on what you want and I will again volunteer to take on the task of getting the artwork, getting necessary approvals,  and producing samples for those who are interested.   As I recall you will need to have about 36 or more shirts ordered in order to keep the cost per shirt under $20. 

The first shirts which had the Larrivee label on the back and the Larrivee logo on the front were, in my opinion, very classy.  The last ones were also nice and offered several colors.
At one time the idea of a hoodie was thrown out.  That can be done but they are more expensive and not appealing to the majority of those who would otherwise go for a regular tshirt.

Lynn,

Very good of you to offer to step up to the plate again (IF anything can be decided/agreed upon...)

And, yeah, we're not really going into "hoodie" season right now...or long sleeve, collared shirt season. That, or a polo, might interest me.

I don't know if there are any Larrivee shirts or hats available right now from other vendors, like Cherokee (that's where I got my first shirt, hat, key chain, strap, picks...)  rolleye

I can't read the front of my 40th anniversary shirt anymore so I would go for the Celtic logo but I liked the original  black.

The New label looks cool too.

   I know this would probably not fly, but I'll throw it out there. One of Jean's sons has a JCL tattoo on his arm, it's the Celtic type lettering I believe and its high up on his shoulder.
   So how about a Larrivee logo 0n the back and a JCL on the right shoulder?  whistling

You mean on the shoulder of the shirt? Or do we all have to get tattoos?  bigrin

I'm guessing he meant the sleeve, which is a pretty stylish thing lately. I'd greatly prefer that design on the sleeve vs the breast pocket area, which is less in favor right now.

Here's a better illustration on the new label suggestion for the shirt. (Just to get the ideas flowing.)
