Bass Player Wear?

    We as bass players are unique! We feel it and I'm sure we'd all like to look the part! What kind of clothing and head wear would be desirable to you that you can't find in any average clothing store?? Other than Lathon, I don't see any alternatives.

    Dress Shirts (not just T-Shirts)
    The obligatory t-shirts (short & long sleeve)


    Speaker and Amp covers (a cheaper alternative than what's out there currently)

    The reason I'm asking is I know a really good seamstress who is interested in adding the above items to her business! I'm working on setting up a website for her! She's been in business for over 10 years. I've seen her designs (also interior designing) and I can vouch for her work and professionalism!

    If this is something that interests y'all and y'all have designs or ideas on what you'd like to see, reply here or PM/E-mail and I'll pass it along to her.

    I wear a Santa suit.
  3. suggest she make reasonably priced iPod covers, I was checking yesterday and even the cheap ones cost about 25$, thats about as much as my jeans cost (I love target). If she could make them for 15$ or less they would probably sell pretty well

    I own two Sadowsky shirts and one Lakland T-shirt . . .

    Depends on what you're looking for.

    I'm fine in your usual gear. However, I'd love a Kubicki cap. If only Phil made them :(
  6. They should make bass clef sweatbands and wristbands. The wristbands could double as mutes, too! For those that use them, that is.

    Ya' know that suit Bootsy wears? With the Marvel Super Villian shoulder pads? I could use a few shirts like that, in black, 4xlt. How much?

    A guitar player I used to occasionally jam with had a robe/coat/duster thing that I always thought was cool, but they didn't exist in size gigantonormous.

    Someone started with a cloth that was kind of like unbleached heavy cotton sailcloth, similar to denim, buta very pale beige. Then they painted something on it (in BIG stroles) that looked like Japanese writing. Then they cut it up and made these kind of kimono-like/duster-ish coats.

    I think I saw Vernon Reid wearing one in an ad once.

    I don't know where I would wear it, but even now, better than fifteen years after I last remember seeing Peter's coat, I would totally dig having one.
