    For now I'm thinking of a bass clef with www.talkbass.com written underneath for the embroidery. 100% cotton pique polo. Thank you for your opinions! :)

    Hey Paul, its a very good idea, you should buy about thirty or so and see how they sell, if they go quick, buy more if not you can just stop ordering them. i think people will buy them and its not like there eggs and can go bad, i would do a poll and see what is the majority shirt size, or see what size sells mosts of the regular tee's and stock the majority of polos with that size, and if worse comes to worse, you always will have an abundance of x-mas/birthday presents to give out
    good luck

    I'd buy one. Personally, I'd prefer just a little bass clef. I know a few musicians in my area who'd go for something like that.
  6. I wouldn't mind having a t-shirt with a big ol' bass clef on the back!!

    Agreed, if it was just a bass clef I'd get one.

    I'd buy one.. Just don't forget us "economy sized" peeps... ;)
  10. Im not a polo kind of wearing guy honestly.

    However a soccer jersey (football for you Euros) with a bass clef in the center and on one sleeve would be cool.
    Example with the maiden soccer jersey's, cept replace Ed's face with Clef.

    Might be a bit expensive to make though i guess?
    Or how about those wristbands i emailed you about before Paul?

    I wear polos every day to work, and would buy one in a heartbeat if the size and color were right.

    Suggestion: Land's End. They have a great corporate embroidery programs, and top-notch stuff for cheap. My work polos are about $30 each, and are nicer than my $75 polos.

    I voted yes, but I wouldn't want a big bass clef smackdab in the middle of the shirt like on the T-shirts. I'd prefer a small one over the left boob :ninja: kind of like them polo shirts with the crocodile or golf guy on a horse (honestly don't know what those are). Oh yeah, I think it'd be cool if it said "badass" on the end of the sleeve or something.

    With a dress code at school, I could always use some polos. I'd probably buy two - maybe more if I really liked them.

    Also, the simpler the polo the better.

  18. I'll second that! Polos make my neck itch.

    It would cost more, but I think this would look slick on a polo shirt...
