100% unofficial Vital Pompey cup final T-shirts!

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.

Dragon Slaying Day. An apt idea. But Chix won't get into XL.
29/04/2008 15:24:00
Only Joking Chix. Your wife actually said you were small!!!
29/04/2008 15:43:00
how rude :-) so can we put your name down for a shirt matt?
29/04/2008 15:49:00
I have my top for the final. Sorry. Great idea though, maybe we should have a t-shirt when we win the cup. Pompey on tour! As for Chix he can buy me a beer it's his round.
29/04/2008 15:54:00
We could always have Cardiff v Pompey, if you don't want to reverse the pictures
29/04/2008 15:59:00
Irrespective, I'll have 2; 1 * XL and 1 * Med
29/04/2008 15:59:00
How much of a risk is it to order a number for sale at the Fulham game to whoever wants one?
29/04/2008 16:01:00
