Are you tempted by the t-shirt Can't Post

I've just noticed that the Lord of the Rings trilogy offical facebook page has just advertised this.

Save $5 on our EXCLUSIVE Prancing Pony Staff Shirt when you Pre-Order the Trilogy on Blu-Ray!

So, are you tempted by the t-shirt?

Tempting but . . . [In reply to] Can't Post

Actually off eBay I bought a Prancing Pony and Green Dragon shirts that I wear all the time.

If anyone is interested:

Prancing Pony

Green Dragon

But that is cool that it is with the BlueRay.

I am actually tempted... [In reply to] Can't Post

... but the shipping costs to UK are about as much as the t-shirt! Perhaps I'll wait 'till pay day Wink
Also, (this is probably just me) but I'm worried that I'll walk into a shop/resturaunt and if someone sees "Staff" on my back then I'll get people coming up to me asking for things thinking that I actually am Staff... Crazy

I'm betting those e-Bay ones aren't licensed [In reply to] Can't Post

And as a graphic designer, I can tell those shirts weren't designed by a designer. :P

But then, I'm fussier than most so it probably doesn't matter to most people. It just kind of amuses me how anyone can make up and sell anything these days. The market is there no matter what.

Yes. The Green Dragon one looks very sloppy..not like a dragon at all. [In reply to] Can't Post

But I do like the prancing pony one, especially since it has the town name, Bree, on it.

Nah. [In reply to] Can't Post

Proper pubs don't have t-shirts!

I love the design... [In reply to] Can't Post

but I wish there was a ladies size, like what is called "baby doll" style I think. And I wish it was available from a UK distributor so the P&P wouldn't be so expensive!

I was, until I got a look at it [In reply to] Can't Post

The artwork really is pretty ... well, boring. It's just some standard monotone clip-art (possibly from a wingding font set) and low quality at that. The word "Staff" on the back kind of tempted me for a second - that's a cool idea! Use a more detailed and middle-earthy image on the front, and a more medieval font on the back, and I'd go for it.

Come! Tra-la-la-lally!
Come back to the Valley!
