Free Hoodies, Thanks Tim!
Who wants to make the SOL hoodies?

Can I pre-order? I know, we don't even have a price yet.
Maybe a discount for pre-paid orders?
Yeah, I'm scottish and frugal. Loving the ideas here though

Me, too If it's free, it's for me
Show someone how to catch striped bass and they'll be ready to fish anywhere.
Show someone where to go striped bass fishing and you'll have a desperate report chaser with loose lips.
We love our stripers - please don't take more than yah need.

Tim, there's a guy making the shirts & hoodies for the SHeepshead Bay boats, and will be making he NERB tee shirts and hoodies in the next few weeks. He has a sweatshirt which is INSANELY warm and comfy, the cost was $70 (2 color silk screen front & back) and that was 2 years ago. It weighs 8#'s, and is 6 layers thick. Last winter, I didn't wear a leather jacket, instead I worse this thing. Problem is with a cost of at least $70, you're lookig at even more to retail it, and that's gonna be a tough sell.
If nothing pans out from a member on this site, I'd be glad to share teh guys info with you. I do know that there is at leat one guy in NJ who posts here with an embroidery place, who I am pretty sure can accomodate you. It's been a couple of years since I contacted him though, so I can't even remember who it is.
Whatever you do, good luck with it.

Great Im glad that I sparked some evolution at our beloved on line SOL store.
Please put me down for a 3XL in black ...
No Catharts or other expensive brands please. Im sure that we can get a good quality USA made "mom and pops" outfit to make our SOL hoodies at a great price and at a great quality....
As a matter of fact put me in for 2 of them in 3XL...
one black and one forest green or Navy blue...
And Yes the Def design on the back is a great great idea... put it on the front as well.... the SOL hoodie should have a surf aura..
I'll waer it with pride around the world... "on stage"

I couldn't disagree more. If you want quality, you have ot pay for it. I'm sure you could get something at a great price, that after 3 washes your 3XL is not an XL, the silk screening started to fade/wear out, etc. I thnk that is why so many guys have said thatis exactly what they do NOT want.

a corporate vendor out here on the west coast will probably make it for about 30 dollars each for a quantity over 100. my guess.
i don't have a freelance account though.

2nd Derf's design...and black, they gotta be black! Other then that, I really don't care who makes the hoodie, as long as the screening holds up.

They should be gray, pull-over style.
Maybe a half-zip.
They gray will allow the wearer to show off a recent batch of blue-fish puke.

Finally he succumbs to the pressure. I'm in for one.
If no one here has the business there are a few options. Of course Ann where the hats came from or a guy from Berkeley does a nice job with their stuff too.
About time ya gave in.

The hoodies Billy mentioned are worth every penny. Things are like a mobile blanket + down comforter.
A mother of a mate I know does screenprinting and stuff, I can see what pricing they'll be able to come up with.
Tim, you should be able to get a few places to bid on this proposal
