    Stop being such a bunch of pansies, put it on the front ala Marinella and be proud of your affiliations!

    Ventured into another Sirrico store during lunch and notice a few well priced ($200) leather bags. One particular one is from a brand called San Babila. Anyone know much about them? Always a little bit iffy about obscure Italian brands.

    Afraid I'd have to vote for hidden personally. Doubt I'd wear something with it visible unless it was extremely subtle. Of course depending on the tie I may never wear it anyway :) Perhaps to maximise potential wearers it could be something like a special edition of the classic navy grenadine or similar staple (although I assume embroidery on a grenadine is probably not possible?).

    Agreed with first part, doubt I would be interested in one with something visible.

    Thought you would be put forward the case for burgundy? Was actually going to nominate you as the person to speak about Charlie's Wardrobe about this.

    I am guess the options really fall to what Henry Carter can get created and what Australian Members actually show an interest in buying. Make sure you PM Charile's Wardrobe so he can gauge interest and sort.

    Hey guys,

    I'll get back with more info over the weekend but yeah basically it will need to be a fabric that can be embroidered easy, so i'd recommend a plain twill like the Armoury has done, maybe in a navy, burgundy or a dark green could be nice as well. I'll do a few mock ups anyway.

    Placement will be hidden, on the front of the blade seems to be the best position so far. I'll come up with a few different designs for the actual embroidery.

    Pricing will hopefully be similar or the same as it is now. $79.95 if classic construction or $99.95 if it is a 7 fold but we need to decide on the embroidery, because the more stitches it has, the more it costs.

    There will need to be a 30% deposit for those who are in, but this can be sorted out down the track once everything is decided.\

    I've got 5 confirmed as interested so far, so keep the PM's coming. Thanks everyone who has pm'd.

    Cheers
    Jason

    Well the burgundy 'official' tie only came about because I noticed that many members including myself happened to end up buying one at one of the R&B sales, so it was an opportunistic declaration rather than a case of strong advocacy for a burgundy tie :)

    ^^ That depends on how much you're willing to pay.

    Completely agree with this. I feel that if we all meet up wearing ties with an Australian flag, we run the danger of people believing we work for the tourism board.

    If you do want one, you can get it here or here [​IMG]
