    I've been thinking of doing a run a Mechanics type work shirts. Wanted to gauge interest first.

    Cost would be ~49.00 depending on size and options selected

    Shirt is from Dickies
    • Lined two-piece collar w/ permanent stays
    • Button front shirt; one snap closure at neck
    • Mitered front pockets with pencil division on left pocket
    • Dickies logo on left pocket & bottom of button placket
    • Fade resistant
    • 4.25 oz. Permanent Press Poplin, 65% Polyester/35% Cotton
    • Industrial laundry friendly

    Available in plethora of colors

    Both Female and Male Cuts

    Long and Short sleeve versions

    Sizes would run from Small to 5X, 3X in Tall sizes too

    M/A Logo embroidered over the left pocket

    Optional - Name embroidered over right pocket

    Please vote in the poll, I'll give it about 10 days, if there is enough interest I'll move forward and get the ball rolling.

    Below is a mockup, the embroidered name would be an option. The mockup has one light and one dark colored shirt, these are not the only colors, just showing how it looks on light and dark.

    Picture? Just any plain shirt for a reference would do.....

    A long-sleeved, bright colored cotton-t, that would be higher on my list (for HPDEs), but a dedicated work shirt might be nice too.

    What about the two-tone color version? I am kinda liking the M/A'ish colors.

    Long sleeve in dark color

    I think it would be great, long sleeve, dark in color, M/A logo.

    What would the extra cost to have your name over right pocket, hey it is a work shirt, do it all. :) :)

    Maybe your club and name over the right pocket, now that would be the cat's meow! :Thumbsup: :fingerscrossed:

    I bet I could get a $75 shirt with all the options.:eek6:

    Scott, Much like a MINI I started with a base model. A short sleeve shirt with an M/A logo embroidered over the left pocket is the one that comes in at $49.00. Options from there. The 2-tone shirt could be an option, I didn't really price that out as the base price would be a bit higher. I wanted to keep it affordable. Learned my lesson on the $75 ones we had a ways back.

    Back to your question. Since I only need to a minimum number and I can mix styles to get there, yes, a two-tone option is possible. I'll note that as an option when I start setting this up. Assuming there is the interest required.


    The addition of embroidered text over the right pocket is a $10 option. Two lines I'd need to check on though. I think I had that request in the past and it might have been $15 for both lines.

    Y'all are going test my logic skills with the shopping cart software I see.

    How much for a different color collar, like MINI's, with their roofs? And matching different colored buttons. And viper stripes on the back. And maybe checkered patterned cuffs. And a pocket with a nonfunctioning opening for it, like the fake hood scoop on the R56?

    Or, once again to stay in the MINI tradition for quirkeness, maybe one sleeve short, and one sleeve long?

    Or maybe a "Countryman" size, that's two sizes too big?

    How much for all of that?
