    An art degree can be a good thing

    I like the results of my new ST-70 so much I dedicated a sweat shirt to it. I have a BFA in studio art with painting as a major:

    That is my first selfie!

    That is very neat!

    DIY, or custom. Or in bulk.

    You see Murphy as my Avatar - these guys made me some shirts with his picture on them, and the note:

    My Maine Coon is Smarter than Your Republican

    Big hit at the Kutztown show. I could have sold dozens.

    The nice thing about DIY is you can pick your own shirt, size of font, placement, and if you use acrylic paint like I did... it will not chip or wash off. Plus the pride of doing it yourself.
    They are easy & you would not have to do it free hand, giving it some thought- you could place a photo of the Dynaco logo on your monitor and trace it with tracing paper then transfer it to your chosen shirt- make sure you have had it washed and dried so it does not shrink- get acrylic paint in your choice of color and dilute it with a little water so it is kind of runny and wala.

    Guys and gals - if there is a consensus on wanting these shirts, let me know. If the count is reasonable, the price per unit isn't much, with shipping and handling being the wild cards.

    Roy M. had some cool shirts made up awhile back, as did Holger. You'd have to ask them about availability.

    30 pieces, FOB 19027 would be ~$180. Follow-on shipping assume at $5, so +/- $11 each. Simple Dynaco logo across the front. Additional text would be more. All one color shirt and logo. Probably white for the shirt, blue for the logo.

    Consider:

    light gray (ersatz aluminum) shirt with blue dynaco logo (ST-400, FM-5, PAT 4/5 style)
    gold shirt with black dynakit logo (PAS 2, FM 2)
    brown shirt with white dynakit logo (Mk III, Stereo 35/70 style)
    black shirt with white dynaco logo (PAS 4, Mk VI style)

    In these troubled times, no form of Brown shirt is going to happen at this end.

    The others are great ideas.

    It all comes down to quantity, with small quantities in many colors running to twice as much as large/one lots - not on the shipping, just the raw goods.

    (brown shirt phobia?)

    I'd feel the same way about red shirts ...

    White? White!? All my white t-shirts end up as rags after one or two wears because of non-removable stains. Maybe it's the klutz in me, but I know others with a similar disability. How about green background and gold/yellow logo?

    Brown t-shirt is as bad as a brown suit. I’ve never seen a brown Canali or Hickey Freeman
