    Looking toward doing another shirt design and wanted to gauge your interest.

    Would any of these designs appeal to you? They'd be a few bucks more than what we've done previously because they feature more colors (so more screens), but still would be well under $20 each.

    ^^^I agree!!!^^^

    Personally, I try not to wear dark colors when I fish in the summer so the dark blue wouldn't be an option for me. It IS summer after all! lol

    I am going to work on a largemouth one. Ideally I'd have a few of the popular gamefish in San Diego (maybe bass, tuna, yellowtail, calico, trout or something).

    I always make the designs available on a few shirt colors. Obviously some designs only work on dark or light, but these should go ok on either.

    This last year we had shirts available in; ash grey, sports grey, navy, royal, white, and sand.

    You the man Kellen! If you have the funds, that would be cool to see all the popular game fish on a shirt. I'll for sure take a handful from ya!

    We'll get there eventually. Im not going to try to do them all it once, but maybe we'll roll out one or two fish at a time for buy ins.

    I am trying to avoid stocking shirts, thats why I've been doing the preorders so that everyone gets the sizes, styles (short sleeve, long sleeve, tanks, and hoodies) and colors they want and I don't have to keep an inventory of shirts.

    I forgot to say I appreciate the time and work you put into these shirts. I have a white long-sleeve from last year's batch (I'm wearing it in my avatar!).

    The SDFish original logo w/script; on back is what I'm talking about!
    maybe a pocket w/logo ?
    "species" concept is nice,(ie) tuna,yellowtail,lmb,calico,trout,halibut,etc...
    How about a Anti-Lizzard fish,or Quagga mussel version?

    You should have a double digit LMB hammering a rainbow trout on the back, then you would be appealing to both bass and trout fisherman :wink:

    I like the small logo on the front with, maybe, the gamefish/ SDFish text on the back. A bass and a tuna would be a great start as far as the different gamefish go.

    Would a loose Under Armour style T-shirt be cost prohibitive? Those thin shirts are really nice during the heat of Summer and Fall.

    I think a UPF shirt would be a great addition. I wear these as a base layer then strip down as the weather improves.

    I'll look into those. I would venture to guess those would increase the price by a ton. I kind of went with the lighest shirt material that was available from a major manufacturer, which ended up being those Gildan 50/50s.

    I think a T-SHIRT need's to be affordable to the mass'.The Gildan 50/50s have been a Great, and comfortable choice!
    Look'n forward to the next Pre-Order!

    I like my Gildan 50/50's. But I wear my UPF shirt more. My SD Fish is my top layer shirt then I strip down to 5x3 UPF shirt.

    PS: These shirts can be picked up for around $30 shipped. But their volume is pretty high, I would imagine.

    Ok, we're going to do another round of the Gildan 50/50s.

    These will feature the full color sdfish logo on front and back (tank tops will only have printing on the front, due to size constraints).

    But we'll do short sleeves, long sleeves, hoodies and tanks available in both white and navy garments.

    Please see our apparel store for options and to order.
