100% unofficial Vital Pompey cup final T-shirts!

Some of you might have noticed that pompeycarpet had basically been challenged to 'design a cup final t-shirt' within a forum thread - click here...

Well he did this, but Chix then took the idea a step further and developed it a little more! After doing more work on a design, he has then taken the next step of approaching a printer to get a quote to have them printed up for us.

So here is the '100% unofficial Vital Pompey cup final t-shirt' in mock up form, bare this in mind, this is just to give you an idea of the shirt.

Vital Pompey T-Shirt

The more of us that are interested the cheaper they will become!

The maximum price will be £11 - yep I know we do not want to pay that, I do not want to pay that and if we do not get enough interest we probably will not do them. If enough are sold we will only have to pay £6 each, which I dare say we would sell enough... however to get them for as little as £6 each we need 'concrete yes I would like one please' answers, and ASAP!

If we get enough early interest Chix can place an order tomorrow, and if he does this by then we will have them - and so will you - by cup final day and there is a good chance we will have them by the Fulham game - so as a meeting will be planned (not that I have told you yet!) at the Milton Arms that day you can come along and collect it.

Obviously there will only be a limited number, but in order to make it even worthwhile putting in an order we need a rough idea of how many people want them - hopefully if you say you want one you will take one, otherwise the price per t-shirt for all will rise, the more we sell the cheaper they will be, only £6 each if we sell enough. They are being passed on at face value, so no profit is made here!

Posting the t-shirts is a possibility if collecting in person proves a problem for the Fulham game - if they are ready - or in the week in the lead-up to the cup final. You would simply need to provide me with your address and I will put you in touch with Chix and he will organise the payment and posting, with you obviously having to cover this too.

One final thing there is a thought of reversing the position of the Knight and the Dragon so they sit under Pompey and Cardiff names as it is thought this could be better. To be honest I am not sure they will look as good with the characters reversed, but that is just my opinion...

So if you want a shirt or shirts say below, stating how many and give us a size S, L, M, XL etc.

Size Guide
Regular Fit
S - 35/37'
M - 38/40'
L - 41/43'
XL - 44/46'
XXL - 47/49'

XS - 8
S - 10
M - 12
L - 14
XL - 16

The shop suggests that Lady-Fit t-shirts are cut pretty small so they recommend that if in doubt go for the size above.

Matt - You're wrong...I will get into an extra large and my misses has never complained about my size ;) which given the fact that she a stunner is somewhat strange.oh and yep you are correct it is my round - Fulham ? As for the XXL Large the T-shirt company have confirmed their sixes and guess what .. There is an XXL ... So it looks like we can put you down for one after all. For everybody else sizes are as follows.. Regular Fit S - 35/37' M - 38/40' L - 41/43' XL - 44/46' XXL - 47/49' Lady-Fit XS - 8 S - 10 M - 12 L - 14 XL - 16 The shop suggests that Lady-Fit t-shirts are cut pretty small so they recommend that if in doubt go for the size above. So who's up for 1 I'm taking 4

P4me and Gandor consider them ordered... Dave... I have to place the order in the morning.... so if I go for a mixture of XL, L & M will that cover what you might need.. or will you need a small .... No need to commit yourself on numbers yet but if you can give me just a clue on size it'll mean you won't be dissapointed come what (17th of) May !

Yep ... The chances are (but yet to be confirmed) we will be able to dish the t-shirts out in the pub at the Fulham game... If we can't I'll still be in the pub anyway as I think will be Rug and Matt as it;s my round !!

Consider it done Dave... and you've just taken us over a price break point (I think) .. I'll need to check but it highly unlikely we will be paying £11 now ... I think we are nearer a max of £9.50 now... It really is like Bid up TV... Join in everybody.. the more we get the cheaper they become...

Chix, I have just read my request for a T shirt. I meant I would like 1 large one not one xl, it is the way I have written it. Sorry. If there is a problem the XL will be OK. I will pick it up from the Milton Arms before the next home game. Thanks!
