Well spotted and thanks for posting.

Really curious about what made the Asda stock buyer choose this design.  All here are committed BSA fans but you  can hardly argue that interest in the company is 'mainstream'. Perhaps I've missed a recent increase in public interest and appreciation.

Yeah good spot. I think it is down to 'old skool', old stuff, hipster trending, but not to be sniffed at when it produces a result.

Sadly I'm old school enough to want the sleeves of a t shirt to be long enough to hit the crook of my elbow, and that has not been the fashion for a very long time now.

Nice one, looks like it's online only though, I'm going into Berwick in half an hour I'll pop into Asda and see if they carry them in stock.

On a similar theme did we ever agree a forum logo?, it's just my nephew is producing Printed Tee's and said postage anywhere was no problem and they are good quality, good price, (got one for Xmas).
If there's interest I'll post a pice of mine and details.

PS Bob I got your message thanks I'll get back to you soon, have been meaning to for some time, goto go

I've just ordered this to wear at BSAOC meets. I'd like to know if I'm speaking to another forum member.
It would be good to have a strong logo for the forum.

Surely the logo would have to be an image of the timing cover, with the piled arms of course, (and maybe with a little seep of oil)?

My Tee shirt was ordered from Vistaprint: http://www.vistaprint.co.uk/t-shirts.aspx?xnav=Breadcrumbs
I'll let you know if it is any good when it arrives.

Bill they are in the shops, that's where I came across them. I ashamedly admit that I buy their dirt cheap jeans cos whenever I have wear new pants I end up in the garage wiping oily hands on them instinctively even though I only went in there check the doors locked *roll*

Your shirt will be helpful, particularly if you are using a little "Touch of Gray", as in this earlier picture of you.

Plan on signing up for the world-wide 2020 DISTINGUISHED GENTLEMAN'S RIDEon September 27, 2020. This year it's a solo or pillion ride in dapper attire. Watch website at https://www.gentlemansride.com for details.

Hi Dean, their not in the Berwick branch but some of the other ones were, looks like I'll get it on line.
Totally agree about the jeans, I get mine there, how wrong can you go at two for a tenner and don't look like they've had beach thrown over them, dragged along a road and been slashed so your knees pop through, although Bramble our Border terrier is doing a pretty good job of fraying the bottoms  *smile*
