    I never thought about that, but you’re right on the money.

    My dad, brothers and I made some shirts, etc. for our family hobby/addiction. Full logo on the back, small one on the front pocket. Covers all seasons.

    Why would you want the pocket on the back?
    Just effin with ya;)
  14. LOGO on BACK!.....It makes me feel uneasy when people walk towards me, squinting to read a front logo. Pocket optional. :)

    Begs the question…naw. I don’t want to get banned at the end of 2021.
  16. No pocket on T shirts or concert type shirts. If it is a collared old timey mechanic’s or attendant type shirt - no I didn’t say technician- then a pocket and name badge would be really cool, and likely formal enough for Sundays and wedding atire.

    Design on front!
    Since I'm sorta the last guy I know still into cars, I'm the only one who wants to see the picture, and I can't see it on the back without a mirror. Yes, I'm being serious!

    It doesn't matter. I give them away. I have way too many shirts. Give me a free Coke and Hot dog. The idea of another shirt does not draw me to an event.

    I have over 150 event t-shirts. Don`t need another one. But I do buy them from shows I really like. And of course, from our local show, we put on. 45th annual now. And I don`t wear car shirts unless I`m going to a car event. But not always. Are you going to give them away when you enter a car? Good selling point for sponsors. Better this way so you don`t get stuck with leftover shirts. Sponsors names on back with logo on the front. All depends on cost.

    Tad wise; Main art on back, with maybe small art* or name pocket size on left front,even if no pocket.
    This was also how I airbrushed "Wild Car T's" at car shows in late 50's n early 60's,using my art name "The Bat" out of hell,,so T-shirts , sweatshirts and jacks all that way.
    As things a bit messede up in the mid 60s n70s,some shirts were done by add print co. on the front=Now looks like some one was wearing there shirt backwards.

    The new T's at shows now are $28, $42 for the henley style my preference. I prefer the small pocket size logo on front area and artwork on back, I look at how the artwork is done, if it's the painted style (does not breathe) I pass, as on a hot sunny day I do not like this style. The event hats are now $28 and speaking as an "Old Timer" I do not buy one at every show anymore unless I really like the artwork. I have plenty of shirts, hats after all these years and they still fit. Side note ! Look in mirror before leaving house, a worn out shirt 10-20 years old, 20-40 # ago, your belly bouncing over your belt is not kool.

    I like the logo on the back. What I usually pass on in regards to event shirts is if they are white.

    all event shirts should be black, I will never buy a white shirt period, design always only on the front. no pocket, pockets are for smokers and surely nobody is stupid enough to smoke anymore...

  27. Large design on the back always. Small design on front and a pocket for the phone!
  28. Right there ya go. If it's not crazy on price, left chest and back, no pocket. If money is an issue, just put it on the front.

    I don't wear pull over shirts, or any style shirt without TWO pockets. Left pocket carries my sun shades in a soft case for when needed, also my card wallet/notepad and a pen so if somebody picks my rear pocket they won't get but a few bucks and not every card I have. Right pocket carries my smokes. Yes, I still smoke, been doing it 50 years, so why quit now? As long as I'm not blowing it in your face, and I'm more respectable than to do that to anyone, WTF does it matter to anybody else?
