Summer shirts - suggestions? - Page 3

You could try this website which has a fine selection of tee shirts, and etc. Oki-Ni
They're charging US$110-140 per shirt. And they're not even good shirts, or complicated shirts, they're shirts you could whip up in ten minutes with scissors and a sewing machine, or at a t-shirt priniting place in a mall...

I have aquired some 40 year old shirt fabrics. Great dobbies, clip dots and jacquards. I plan to cut them into slim fitting short sleeve sport shirts with camp collars. The fabrics are great. Swiss, english and even some US made fabrics. It is amazing what this country once made.
Are those going to be RTW, Shirtmaven?

I've never heard of that Taavo Somer before but when I looked at the website, I have to say I was completely unimpressed... People in the "indie" scene particularly in L.A. have been doing that for years, and they pay $0.25 for the shirt, from a thrift store or a little more from a vintage consigment store. And they have more personalized phrases that are actually relevant to themself or their scene.
An ex-girlfriend did up a shirt for me that read "Blow hard" one word on each line over a Rod Stewart concert tee - I have an unhealthy love of the Rod.

This is much funnier taken out of context.

Thanks. Took me a couple of minutes to think that one up. I could go on ad nauseam, but who wants that, huh?

j, I don't mean to be rude, but if you want to give me a lesson in Economics - go ahead.

Ok, lesson one: the price people will pay for an item is that item's value in the market. As you explained in your post about selling £40 door handles to nutters for £100, market value or price have little correlation to cost of production -- only to demand.

And by the way, lest this go too far (ref. 'Watch' thread) -- I understand your point, and that's why I won't pay more than about $25 for a t-shirt and usually don't buy them at all. I just get the sense this is the beginning of one of those conversations that ends with "... and you, sir, are no Adam Smith." and then someone gets the dueling pistols.

As I said j, I do not mean to be rude. You point is very true, and basicaly what I was trying to get across.

Let's all indulge in our love of the Rod (Stewart, that is, or your own, don't even look my way) and chill out. There have been some rather nasty muck being slung around the forum these past couple of days. And even if it is the most amusing thing since Rudy Marcus and Ahmed Zewail (two of Caltech's current faculty and both Nobel Prize winners, for all you non nerds) had a catfight as to which was a greater contribution, electron transfer or femtosecond measurements, I would hate to see this forum descend into chaos. It's been a long, slow day in academia.

You should see the Watch thread, and the pathetich French nutter Ernest.
