Ha.. I’ve just had a little creative moment and look at the result:

T-Shirt

I think that our You know you’re a lumberjock, if/when…... t-shirt series could look something like this.. this is just a draft but I think it looks pretty cool.

Obi, hope you don’t mind using your cool slogan for this test version ;)

I’d be proud… but I still want to see this:

lum•ber 1 (lŭm’bər) n.
1. Timber sawed into boards, planks, or other structural members of standard or specified length.

jock [ jok] n.
Informal. an enthusiast: a lumber jock.

ON THE BACK! (or even on the front) It ‘spalins it to the NON-lumberjock folks exactly what I am.

Looks great! Still waiting for the Aussie version ”TimberJocks” It would stop many weird questions.

With the definition of:

lum•ber 1 (lŭm’bər) n.
1. Timber sawed into boards, planks, or other structural members of standard or specified length.

jock [ jok] n.
Informal. an enthusiast: a lumber jock.

even Aussies would understand that a lumber jock is a timber enthusiast

This is what I want MINE to look like. Let me know when “MINE” is ready.

Make sure they are in X-Large or XX-Large

Thanks for the feedback.

Obi, great idea about having the definition on the back. I will add it.

Ok… i’m putting on my GD hat for a sec….

My first thought would be to have the quote on the back – shoulder area, set large-ish, and with less spacing between lines than here, with the logo on the front breast pocket area, if not the same as the current shirts (centered, big).

But,...
I love the idea of the definition on the back – especially if it broken down just like a dictionary entry, with all the spacing and pronounciation marks… typeset in a serif font – (times, etc… to mimic the style of the dictionary)

With the definition on the back, then you might not need the logo on the front. The logo could be on the shoulder area – big, with the definition below in the middle. either way, the logo should probably only be on one side…. the web address if not incorporated more simply into the logo, could visually be part of the definition, as if it was def #3.

With the current design here the quote should be bigger and bolder if nothing else is changed (something needs to be the dominant element of the three things on the front of the shirt)

and lastly, if you have a small, or lighter .com added to the logo, you wouldn’t need the extra line below.

Just my 2 cents, for what it’s worth.
