Topic tags/keywords: shirt lumberjock

I was riding an elavator in Baltimore yesterday and a lady across from me asked me what a was. I was wearing a cool new shirt. It has a LumberJock blazed across the front of the shirt. I proceded to tell her that I work with wood etc.

It wasn’t until I got home and took off the shirt that I noticed the writing on the back.

When she asked that I should have just turned around and let her read the definitions on the back.

Martin and Douglas designed the shirt and I thank you but I’m sorry for screwing up so bad, and not let her read the definitions of a LumberJock.

I just think it was an honorable thing to do – you didn’t turn your back on her and gave her a personal lesson – what LJ is all about… now where are those fools that designed that shirt that way ?!? ;)

From the sounds of it maybe they will just have to offer the option of a t-shirt with the definitions on both
the front and back for a few extra dollars, but I agree that it is easier and nicer to just tell a person and
have a nice conversation. In MHO we could all do with a few more friendly conversations.

I don’t see the link to where us Lumberjocks can purchase these shits. Anyone know where it is? I will buy one.

You can get them here Greg – “Lumberjock apparel (usa)” this is for the USA, I believe there is another link to a Canada supplier – both are at listed at the end of the LJ’s Emag – or you can certainly PM Ms Debbie or Martyn for a link (or do a search on apparel in the search box).

I went through almost all of them on the Order site… looking at the Back side… All that I looked at were blank!

Is there a link to one that has Words on the back?!

Yes, Karson, What is on the Back?

OK Here is the front and back of the shirt.

I couldn’t find it on the web either.

Doesn’t look like any of the shirts they’re selling. Did you get this from winning one of the contests?
