Default FAT COGS tee- or piquet shirts

Hi there.

Every day I see that there's the same old post from the 22nd of October 2008, in this section of the forum, so here's an idea to get some fresh discussions going.

What about design, how to do, who to order etc. for a new FAT COGS t-shirt?

Are there any restrictions?
Will the owners of this site approve/co-operate?
Must old FCC owners approve??

For my self I would like a pique shirt with the FAT COGS-logo on the upper left side on the front, and mabye a larger on in the upper center on the back.. Or an Eddy scull on one arm and the Monster logo on the other..? Embroided and sew-on, of course

I know this is a long-shot to accomplish, but if we start early mabye we reach the goal..

Anyone interested?

-bonsaii bazooka!!

I was thinking the same thing about this area!
Great idea on the shirts, lets do it! I like the embroidered concept, something that would hold up better than screen printing, although the cost might be pretty high for that kind of work in small batches??? Cafe Press?
How about FAT COGS on the back with all the models' signatures around it?

The price depends on the size of the batch. I will look into this; a friend of mine runs a souvenir company and could mabye help us out. He has a contract with a norwegian clothing factory that makes 100% cotton in good quality (80, 90, 100, 110 gram shirts). I know the best quality is used as workwear, and are very durable and long lifetime.

Any others have connections to clothing factorys?

Are there any restrictions from the owners of the brands we planning to use? Who is there to ask?

Will the FAT COGS forum owner allow it?

How about embroided and sew-on patches with logos, like the old (F1/rally) racing shirts?

FAT COGS members: report interest, so we know how many that could be interested. I'll contact my man over the easter holiday.

This must be a zero-profit project!

Default Great idea!

Count me in as well. Sounds like a great idea.

I wonder if anyone knows how much it would take to get some jersey's printed too? That would definitely be cool as well. My early 90s fat jersey is pretty much sailcloth at this point...

Cool with me. I'll post the FC logo up here to use when I get home this evening. I have it with and without the Yo Eddy emblem over it.


FWIW, there are no issues with licensing for Fat, as all of their trademarks expired years ago. The Fat Cogs logo as used here is mine, but we're not making money with this site, so it can be freely used as long as it isn't stretched or altered in any way.

Of the four zipped .eps files, this is the only one I can open. This was a first-shot with Photoshop. Will try more tomorrow, now I'll have to crash.. ZZzzzzzZzzzz.

A quick count gives us approx. 20 shirts. Is that all..?!

Mabye a picture with proposal to layout will ram up the interest? At this point we looking at approx. $50/piece.

Wink-wink and good night!

Don't open them with Photoshop... they aren't photos. They are vector-based EPS Adobe Illustrator files used for cutting decals or printing. Opening them as a Photoshop file will ruin the vector scaling capabilities.

Ok, thanks! I'm no printer, I guess..

Anyways, I'll send the -eps's to the people that's working with these things so they get to use the best quality files.

Doug; do you have the logos in a .jpg (or equal) format for us to use in the layout of the shirt?

Yo!

Default Update..

FYI.

I'm currently out travelling with work and can probably not deal with the shirts the next 10-12 days.

Please comment on wanted colors. It will definitly not be white, as mine will always look dirty.

Also, we must choose one equal color for all.

Thanks!

This project can now move on as my buddy in the clothing business is back from his trip.

I'll get back with details this weekend or monday.

Default Numbers and stuff! T-shirt info...

Okay, folks, time to continue this project. I recently became a father to a little girl (May 21st) and have'nt had time to do anything these last weeks.

Prices on Piquets are as follows:

- Embroidering card for embroidering machine $169/pcs (two logos $338)
- Purchase pice pr. piece $22
- Embroidering pr. piece $4,5

This gives a total price of $34 (plus shipping of approx $10)

The embroidering card is electronic and will be our (read Dougs) property, so it could be sent by e-mail to other clothing factorys and embroiders trough out. It's also possible to make caps, beanies, ear mufs, jackets, shirts etc., and as the embroidering card is already made this will be less expencive.

Quality, colors and sizes:

- 200grams/m2 is a nice and heavy quality that lasts for years
- Marine blue, black, grey, green, red
- Sizes are large, but as piquets are 100% cotton hey will shrink when thumble dry

I'm 173cm and 80kg, so not thin, use size medium. All you tall people will need large/x-large. I'll try and get official size chart before a potential order.

As the FAT COGS logos are black and yellow with pink and green Eddy scull, I think the grey will be best suited, but blue and black could also work.

If you still want the Team purple/Milky way color it is possible but will increase the price. Let me know your thoghts.

The shirts come in 5 pcs batches so the colors and size orders must be adapted such.

Also, could some of you please help me count, as quality assurance anyway, so a potential order will be as correct as possible.

So far, so good eh?

-bns

(Reservation on exchange rate swinging. 1USD=6.55NOK at the time.)

Congratulations on the new addition to the family!

I'm still good for two shirts. Let's get a vote on shirt color. I like gray, black and Team purple.

Is the Giordana repro lycra top an option people want?
