    On Herb Alpert's official site, you can now order assorted merchandise. At this point it is primarily wearables. Check them out here: Herb Alpert » They look pretty cool so far!

    These seem to be calling my name.

    Pretty neat. I'd love to have a shirt with the old A&M logo on it, but I'm guessing there will be a rights issue on that one.

    Any one in particular? I'm actually liking the pictured Whipped Cream shirt. That is one album cover that everyone seems to know. :D

    They're all pretty cool. I'm trying to decide if I would look stupid wearing a shirt with Dolores' picture on it. (Probably wouldn't be the first time I've looked stupid. :withstupid:)

    The TJB logo shirt is cool...

    I like the South of the Border design, but I can't do a shirt in white--there tend to be catastrophic results when I wear them. Unless maybe they're Scotchgarded. :D

    The Casino Royale and Spanish Flea shirts are, I believe, replicas of the 45RPM single picture sleeves (I have Casino Royale, but not Spanish Flea).

    That reminds me that years ago, I found a Bullish tour t-shirt with the bull design on black. Cool shirt, but I hope I didn't lose it in one of my moves over the past several years. I haven't seen it since 2007 or so. Come to think of it, the Fandango cover would make a neat shirt (but only if printed on "catastrophic white" :D ).

    Those A&M shirts are unofficial/unauthorized merchandise IIRC. With one of the locations being Hong Kong, I'd be wary.
     
  10. Yeah, I wasn't recommending them, but the Captain said he was looking for a A&M logo'd shirt.

    Picture and fonts are correct, white turned to black, no b-side info on the shirt, and of course the A&M logo is gone.

    I still have my BULLISH shirt from way back. I think I have two of them but one of them, um, shrunk and no longer fits....

    Now we just need a replica of the pants from the cover of Summertime. :D

    Strange. My clothing has "shrunk" also.

    :D

    Must be an epidemic -- same thing has happened to mine. Damn these t-shirt makers! You'd think they'd come up with a non-shrinking fabric by now! :laugh:

    Jumped in and bought a couple shirts - Spanish Flea and South of the Border. Order is in processing, so I'm just waiting now. For the record, I have resolved to be more careful with my white shirts. The last couple times I wore a white shirt they ended up with the following dropped on them: A. coleslaw, B. baked beans, C. hair dye. (Not that I actually use item C. :whistle:)

    So you're saying someone splashed their hair dye on you, then? :D

    A BBQ site I visit mentioned this stuff to get out grease stains from food. It works in many (but not all) cases, better than other things I've tried: Amazon.com: Grandma's Secret Spot Remover, 2-Ounce: Arts, Crafts & Sewing »

    It was a desperate struggle. :D
    I'm usually not bad about spilling food but if I'm around chili, barbecue, or baked beans I'm guaranteed to be wearing some of it.

    I cook a lot, so I tend to wear old tees when I am in the kitchen or working the BBQ. Never fails that the one time I'll wear one of the better tees, I'll get a stain on it.

    I got a message from PayPal that half of my order had been refunded. Still waiting to see what happens with the other half.
     
  22. Meanwhile, my A&M shirt from eBay arrived, has been worn twice and through the laundry twice. I ordered the white one pictured above and it's pretty decent for a t-shirt.

    Hi Joe- Please let me know exactly what exactly is happening with your shirt. When did you order it, is or was it delayed and any correspondence you had with the company. I want to know about any problems anyone is having with these shirts. There should be no problems and if there are, again please let me know. Thanks for your help with this! randy

    Hi Martin- Please let me know when you ordered your shirt and when delivery was promised. I do understand that shipping to Europe may add a few extra days but again please let me know when you ordered the shirt and what the status is. Hope you are having a good summer! randy
