Well, here is a mock-up of the shirt using the green hat logo. I think the hat logo works very well.

I think we agree that the spot for the embroidered patch is above the pocket.
I think we need to decide to get a profesional supplier to make finished LS and SS shirts (winter and summer) , saw some at work with sewn logo and they do look a grade above sewn on patches.

I like the idea of a Kelly Green or a Khaki work shirt style REMLR shirt, but I reckon something olive drab like the old jungle greens shirts would be more apt. They make close repros of the greens shirts, and I've even seen repros of the VN-era Pixie shirts with their slant pockets and FFD pockets at the shoulders.

Use of an embroidered olive drab greens style shirt would set REMLR apart from all the other clubs out there with their embroidered fishing or work shirts.

Huss makes them and they come in sizes from Small to 5XL. They are polycotton with a decided lean toward the poly content so are suitable for hot weather.

See page 7 of the Huss catalogue - http://www.huss.com.au/resources/catalogue/Huss_Catalogue.pdf item ARMY SHIRT (LONG SLEEVE) (colour - OLIVE CFS03) 

Here's a pic of one I found on ebay:


Sure, the buttons are all wrong, but that will just give us OCD folks hours of fun sewing on the proper ones...

These shirts are a generic item also sold under the brand name "Commando". Mitchell's disposals sells them - http://www.mitchellsadventure.com/product/new-army-shirt/cs0041.aspx

The Huss one looks good.

We have about 16 weeks until the Sydney LR Expo. I'd like to aim for that as a target date, 3rd weekend in September i think.

I thought I'd seen a suggestion previously of using a national multi store work wear supplier.
Criteria could be set for the colour/s and style/s with the location of the embroidery work kept on file.
This is done for many company uniforms so once set up each store does the work required.

As anyone wants a shirt they could then try the shirt on in store and do the order locally.
This would eliminate the post each way option and the work of one person doing all the work while keeping consistency.

Most of https://www.hippocketworkwear.com.au/ are independents and I'm sure would be able to meet our requirements.

Hi Mrs HH,

Sounds  like a volunteer to me and going on some of your previous efforts I'm sure the shirts could come up a treat.

I know Rod and I were having a crack at FFRMAN with the blue shirts but I do actually like them. And the Yellow / Red REMLR logo would look really good. I do also see the uniformity point of view limiting colour to Kakky and green.

Is it possible to use the Land Rover logo and a Kangaroo and crossed swords Or maybe a Aussie flag on the opposite breast ?

Payment up front, return post bag would make admin easy you'd think. Maybe set a dead line for orders so it's a bulk run perhaps with a follow up later ?

Cheers,

Mick


Hey, what about a REMLR workshirt just in time for Christmas!

I was in a local store for safety gloves and saw a local government logo shirt being sold to someone and asked about embroidery...

This shop showed me through their in house embroidery-from-computer section and the two ladies that run it. I picked a made-in-china shirt for $29 and embroidery for $9 incl. gst  as an experiment. See attached photo. The embroidery is very nice. They downloaded the logo file from the REMLR tac sign page and did their thing. I picked it up after work. I paid the setup fee -a one off for that logo to be digitised to suit the stitch machine program.

What to do (A): you can select/purchase a workshirt or two (no restriction) from their website ---in your choice of brand, size and colour etc--- and have it REMLR embroidered for $9 extra. Notify me here on the forum and I will pick it up when passing and mail it back to you (registered mail) at postage cost.

What to do (B) send me a shirt or two as per Mick's idea and I will drop it in to the shop, pick it up when ready and mail it back to you (registered mail) at $9 per shirt plus postage.

What to do (C): the company is located at various places * but as yet I do not know if we can and use the logo setup from the Hip Pocket computer at Phillip, Canberra.  It would certainly simplify things if members could try on a shirt for size etc and then pickup shirt after its embroidered at one of the 50 shops spread around out there.

What to do (Canberra members): go to Hip Pocket Work Wear, 101 Hindmarsh Dr, Phillip ACT 2606. It is on the southern side right across the road from Hogs Breath cafe near the Hardware. http://www.hippocketworkwear.com.au When you buy your work shirt there they can organise the "Registry of Ex-Military Land Rovers" embroidery from the computer for $9 extra. The embroidery job goes in the queue and is usually done within 24 hours.


* TENTATIVE ONLY - TBA - Here is the list of current Hip Pocket Work Wear outlets. For all I know at the moment, some of the listed shops are agents only or something... and not able to embroider the shirts and have to send them away anyway - its a franchise operation after all.  I will edit the shop info when I get an answer. Wouldn't life be good if you could just get your shirt locally using the REMLR logo digitisation file setup in Canberra??? Maybe just a fantasy at this stage.
