SRM Shirt Color

Monday, April 15, 2002 1:11 PM

We're getting ready to order the Stark RAVEN Mad t-shirts and would like some input.

The wonderful design Dave Johnson has come up with lends itself to a dark-colored shirt (preferably black).

But...I seem to remember the last time we had black shirts, there were quite a few complaints that they were too hot.

So, what do you think? Should the design dictate the color? Or is comfort more important?

Thanks for your help,

White or Red .Black is to hot most of the time and the silk screen makes it even hotter , I can feel my chest sweating already.

Maybe dark blue as a compromise?

I'd vote for a white shirt. If it would be something like a sweatshirt or something that is going to be worn in the winter go with dark colors all the way.

However, it can be a kick in the pants to be outside all day in a dark shirt.

I'd rather the shirt look cool than be practical. Its not like I'm going to be dying to wear it when its 90 degrees outside.

That sounds good to me. I personally think white should definitely be avoided.

I think dark blue or blue sounds like a good idea.

Go with the best design--if that calls for black then go with black.

Wear the black shirt on cloudy days.

Avoid white as that gets dirty way too easily.

Some kind of dark green might be a nice alternative.

I'd like a long sleeve shirt. I don't care what color it is, but long sleeve is good.

Thanks for asking, Paula!

I know orange has already been used, but perhaps something bright like yellow? Those orange shirts seemed to be the most visible (gee, I wonder why?) I also like the dark blue suggestion (midnight blue?).

I also thought it would be cool to have a shirt the same color as that off-white glow-in- the-dark color and print some glow-in-the-dark text that can only be seen at dark. Yea, it may not be the most pleasantly looking shirt during the day, but it would be cool at night when 'darkness resides' and the true form of the shirt is seen. Probably not the best suggestion, but one that would be cool to see someday.

I was going to comment on last year's shirts...I didn't even realize the text on the back glowed in the dark until I wore it on Magnum and someone pointed it out in the tunnels.

As far as this year's goes...I would also prefer a light color...I had no issues with the grey.

As long as it doesn't have a big sweat patch on the back like last years, I am fine with whatever color. I think a dark purple might be good.

I'm going to have to vote for dark blue. My wife says blue or red, and the kid says dark blue, too.

I say a dark red or blue too. Will look real snappy amongst all the black and white shirts we usually see. :)

I would say go with a dark blue, or "midnight blue." It's my favorite color, so I may be kind of bias.:)

I think a nice grey would be great, any black, dark blue, red, green, whatever is just too hot. Grey would be perfect.

Does CCI know how to make a bad coaster?

I agree MagnumForce. Grey is a nice neutral color, goes with anything.

Yet another vote for dark blue.....something "Legendy". :) I too am getting one regardless! A dark shirt just looks better with the theme your coasters carry. Maybe have one logo on each side, so we can turn it around and sport our favorite on front. Course that would be a problem with those who love them both equally!

It would be nice to see the design so we could judge artistically, but I'm sure that's kept as a surprise. I'll never forget last year, when all you could see at night were little glowing squares in the forest! LOL.

I like grey too, but it was grey last year.
