Those are Golf shirts and what we use. We also have T shirts but every team leader that works for me must have a collar on their shirt. We have rain gear and wind braker jackets, I forget who makes them but they are in Ontario and the quality is amazing, the guys say they are never cold and they really repel the rain.

For shirts... I cannot stand stitching.

Especially around the arms/shoulders.

I love the way golf shirts look, I gotta get used to wearing them. Gotta find something really light too, something that also drys fast (sweat).

I'm having Spam & crackers for dinner... mmm. Tastes like salt on top of salt.

Hahaha! My mother sounds like yours! Too bad she can tell me what she can do, but will never do it.

As for those iron on images, etc... I had one made, without every wearing it the entire thing faded & fell apart in my drawer.

If you were to bend it once, the image is ruined.

The only stitching i would do on a shirt is a polo..but i wouldnt make those
it irritates me so much..im with you scott

The stitching i was going to use is for hats.

I found these great tshirts that absorbs your sweat and helps it evaporate real fast and they work great..but there t-shirts and its not the most formal

so golf shirts was my alternative..polos are..ugh..reminds me on K-5 when i went to catholic schools i HATED the polos

Im eating wheat things,cheese,and propel..
hahaha

I'm jealous!

Last night I through a few hot dogs in the microwave, destroyed them. They came out as hard as a rock.

Instead of hot dog buns, I toasted some bread... slapped some mustard/ketchup on, made the worst hotdogs in the world... And I'm positive I wont be going to the washroom anytime this week.
