Title: T-shirt question for Travis...
Post by: Phydeaux_3 on April 11, 2011, 03:00:56 pm
Dagnabbit... I was about to order a new shirt last night but the one I want (the first one, white with B holding the neck of the LesPaul) is only available in small anymore. Will there be any other sizes made available anytime soon? I don\'t really think I can pull off a small anymore. I NEED to have this shirt for the KC show, so if there\'s no current plans to re-stock I\'ll have to make my own iron-on version.

Thanks Travis!

Noo Phydeaux...you never wear the band/artists shirt to their own show. Its an unwritten rule dontchaknow...

LOL!

I hope it gets restocked in your size though bro...

That\'s a new thing... I\'m oldskool.. I\'ve been wearing my favorite T to every show for the last 20 years. You young\'ns can do what you like, but I\'ll always wear my best/favorite artists\' shirt to the show.

Normally T-shirts are printed just before any tour.  I still don\'t have any info on availability right now though.

Wait, so if you can\'t find one to buy you\'re just gonna bootleg one?

That\'s pretty funny considering how much shit people catch for downloading Buckethead\'s music.

I don\'t consider that "rule" to be in play if the shirt you are wearing is an old, classic shirt you\'ve had for a long time.  Wearing a Ride the Lightning shirt you got at a Metallica Show back in 1985 to a Metallica concert is awesome.  Wearing a Ride the Lightning shirt you just bought at Hot Topic to the show is not...  LOL

It is only a bootleg if you are producing lots and selling them. making your own tee shirt is an act of devotion. Especially if it is one you are making to win a contest on the old binge board.  ;)

Yes, thats a given.
But it makes you stand out more. Its not necessarily that it makes you more of a fan, but it shows that you\'d be wearing their merch. Maybe gaining their respect if the artist even sees.

Are you sure you are not a secret undercover fashion cop?

beelzeBob knows what\'s up.

& yeah, I\'m only making one tee and not selling any, so I think I can get away with that. I make a lot of "one off" tees, here\'s my PRIMUS tee I made with fan art (Mr. Lips) for the tour opener in Toronto last Fall.

Here\'s the RUSH tee I made for Bluesfest last Summer.

And here\'s a shirt I HAD TO make because I\'ll probably never get to see M.I.R.V. play live... ever.

nice shirts Phydeaux! I have always made my own "one-off" stickers from pictures in magazines, my own pics or stuff off the web. I cover both sides with clear packing tape and use a glue stick to attach them. they actually look really good and last a long time. If I\'m not too lazy later I\'ll try to remember to post some pics.

QuoteHaha nice, Im digging the MIRV one

There WERE actual official Million Pound Bomb shirts that went around that looked very similar to what I made, only they said "Eventually it will kill you" on the front, I had to be a little more specific for my region... it does get some good stare action though, surprisingly.. not as good as, oh say, MINISTRY\'s Rio Grande Blood shirts (that is the ultimate head-turner!) but still pretty good.

I always made my own "stickers" like that too, now I\'ve started to experiment with the clear window stickers... the first one I did turned out nearly perfect.. the second round ARE perfect.
