But haven't you already technically infringed copyrights by using the BMW logos? I doubt BMW will come after you for something as small as this unless you are raking in huge profits or selling these with a big merchant

haha, well yeah, of course. there's only so far down you can "hint" at the bmw logo. it's as simple as it gets. and yes i "worried" about this one, but it's such a small run i doubt anyone will care. it's all a test right now! ha.

but ideally i'd love to just do recognizable shapes and stripes without needing a logo. so we'll see how it goes. it's a nice design challenge of how far i can hint at something and still have it recognizable to those that "know what it is".

Very large simple outline of an 1150 Adventure tank would be iconic.

Side view does nothing for it, I suggest looking down from above, that beast is crazy wide.

Nice shirts, they do look really simple and clean. I put in an order for one of each.

I'd buy one of those, too.

Loved the packaging on the shirt, really good quality print and shirt itself! PS: My girlfriend (works in advertising) said the logo must be changed in at least 13 ways for it to infringe on copyright stuff. I think there was something about how much profit before the pursue things too. Anyways, pretty sure you'll never be on their radar

awesome thanks for the feedback!

the XL sizes seem to be going the quickest. with a bunch of requests for 2XL. so when i reprint the XLs i'll probably throw in a group of 2XLs as well. so if you requested some, just check back in.

i'd also be interested in feedback of the actual tshirt brand i used (as it's the first time I've used this particular brand). being a tall thinnish fellow, i prefer a more fitted tee rather than one more "boxy." but i do understand not everyone feels the same. so if people aren't digging them, i can look into doing something more traditional.

thanks again!

The shirt fits me very well on the sleeves and chest. I'm 5'9'', 160lbs. It's funny you say you are a tall person, b/c I think this shirt was tailored for tall people, due to the length of the shirt tail. I find the shirt tail a little too long for my taste, but certainly not a deal breaker. I'd say it's about an inch to an inch and a half too long on the shirt tail. I'd offer up this option and a shorter shirt tail.

I think you'll find younger guns like myself and my brother, blaine.hale like fitted tee's whereas older guys will prob like the boxier cuts. That's just an observation tho.

The fabric itself is great. No complaints at all. Feels great on the skin. Packaging was killer as well. I'm glad you put it in that bag, so the shirt circuitry wouldn't get fried ;)

Just got my shirts. They're awesome. Girlfriend approves, too, which is a plus.

On sizing, I'm 5'9", 205lbs. with a 45" chest. The large size is nicely fitted (I tend to like my t-shirts a little bit tight).

However, how's the shrinkage (heh, heh) on these things? If they shrink much, I'm screwed.
