    Default Shirts! Important!

    Hey gang - Adam and I have been trading some PM's lately about the possibility of designing a "logo" shirt for Centurion owners. Possibly a nice polo with a logo on the left chest area with or without something on sleeve.
    And perhaps a less expensive t-shirt option. We're still in the planning stages of this. Here's where you all come in!

    1 - Is there much interest in this among the forums members? Don't want to spin our wheels (excuse the pun) if there aren't many that would actually buy a shirt or two. This is a ZERO profit endeavor folks. I'm not looking to make a penny on this, just to take the lead to get'r done! So, reply to this thread and let us know.

    2 - design options. We're looking at several different options. Anything from the "CENTURION" script (like you have your left and right fenders) to the "Roman Helmet Crest" as shown on the header of the forum and most of your hoods... I promise you there are several of you guys that have a lot more talent in this department then I do, so we're looking for you input! Something designed or cut and pasted, anything would be considered. Once I have a few choices, I'll have my designer send us a stitch sampling that I will post here.

    Sooooo, who's in and who has some cool ideas?!?!?!

    Thanks!

    Default shirt

    I'm definitely interested in both a polo and t-shirt. I own a small chemical company, and earlier this year got with Lands End to order hats, polo shirts, and dress shirts with our company name and logo. Lands End is outstanding in terms of quality and customer service, and they've been running a promotion that does not require minimum order sizes.

    You may have already lined up a supplier of shirts. I would love to see the Roman helmet logo and "Buick Centurion" on the sleeve or breast. Let me know if I can be of any support in this effort.

    I'd be in for 2 polo shirts or 1 t-shirt. I like the idea of having the helmet on the chest and Buick on the sleeve.

    I think we need to be cautious about the size of the helmet logo on either or we're going to look like ads for Trojans. Not quite the image we're after.

    One of the companies I worked for had white canvas shirts with royal blue stitching that looked really sharp, and they wear like iron. They look great with Jeans. I'd vote for that over a Polo, but I will buy one of whatever you create.

    Of course Im interested in such a polo shirt too.

    On the other hand I will get a special T-shirt soon :
    Some weeks ago my daughter (she likes painting pictures and caricatures) started to prepare a Centurion-T-shirt for me. It is not ready but she allowed me to post it here ... .

    After understanding what you mean with Polo from the picture in post #10, I’m also in for that!
    Polo here in Sweden means the kind of sweater like on the picture below

    Roman helmet logo on the left chest, with just "Centurion" on the sleeve.


    Or just the helmet on the chest.


    Or "Centurion" on the chest.


    I'd hate to have these be too gaudy. I want to be able to wear the polo shirt at a Golf tournament and not stand out like a sore thumb.

    Im with you, Adam; it has to be elegant and not like a poster !!! Up to now the best for me would be to have only a small logo and also small the word "Centurion" or "Buick Centurion" - the words perhaps on the sleeve - but please nothing on the back side !
    I hope most of us could follow this general line (??) !

    And what colour should the shirt have ? White would be good but fragile; a colour could be better (?). On the other hand the colour should be no problem; I guess it could be choosed individual.

    How do you plan to come to a decision, Steve ? I guess after some more discussion and seeing some new ideas we should start a voting - perhaps by using such easy prepared pictures as my daughter created one (?).

    How about black with the helmet and text in gold?
    Maybe with the text like below on the sleeve?

    Black in combination with gold looks very good , Per, on the other hand black could become too hot in sunshine - specially when driving a convertible ! And I think we should not change the original colour of the helmet too much; we could choose grey or white instead of silver or black on light colour ground (my opinion: best would be silver) for the helmet.
    Also let the text be reduced to the car itself.

    My wish is :
    Keep it simple and elegant to make it a strong sign for all occations !

    Steve,

    You need to start a new thread with the title something like "Centurion Shirt Sizes - sigh up here" ....or something to that effect.

    You will be able to edit your first post in the thread to reflect current numbers and sizes available.

    Default Shirt Color

    About got the logo digitized and ready to show you all... As soon as I do, I'll post. Thinking the Helmet logo (with circle) on the left chest. Either have the word Centurion under the logo or possibly on the left arm. I'll share what I get with you guys so we can decide together.

    What color shirt should we go with? Dark (black, navy etc) or Light (white, yellow, etc) I don't think we can customize the color as the cost will go up. Meaning, we all must decide on one color. So, let the voting begin...

    NAVY Shirt - White or silver logo and lettering
    BLACK Shirt - as described above
    Another color?

    WHITE Shirt - Black or dark grey logo and lettering
    YELLOW (butter or darker yellow) Shirt - as described above
    Another color?

    Suggestions welcome!


    I just thought of this... if we can get enough interest, perhaps we can do one dark and one light one??

    Default My vote ...

    My vote: NAVY Shirt + (White or) Silver logo and lettering !
    This classic dark blue that is traditional and elegant. Navy's appeal is timeless.

    Navy would be elegant in combination with all colors but might be too dark for warm and sunny weather (?).

    If we can only decide one color, then I would go with either Navy or Black - both with silver logo/lettering

    I also vote for helmet on left breast, and Centurion script on the sleeve.

    Dittos to Smartin's comments. If we go with one color, let's stick with Navy.

    I also like the idea of Navy with Silver lettering.

    Exclamation Logo Ok??

    Hey guys, here's the logo I've come up with...
    The Centurion logo on the left chest of the shirt.
    The word "Centurion" on the left sleeve of the shirt.

    Blue shirt.
    Silver logo and wording.

    Will hope to have the shirt sample next week. It will be a very nice golf shirt. More than likely made by Antigua.

    Comments?!?!?!
