Why do we always have t shirts? They really don't suit people like me with long necks. I would like to see a change to polo shirts because: (a) they have a collar which keeps the neck covered from the sun (you remember its that yellow thing which sometimes appears), (b) the collar can be turned up providing more protection and (c) the front partially unbuttons to allow some air to circulate which the close-fitting t shirt doesn't.

Do other diggers think the same? Would Andrew and the Trust be amenable to a change?

Gotta say, I kind of like the idea of a more versatile digger shirt. I imagine that anything deviating from "regular T-shirt" suddenly spikes the cost. But if a collared, breathable Vindolanda logo shirt were available, I'd probably buy one. Just sayin'.

Costs can vary greatly and so accordingly does quality. I should imagine that the current t-shirts with a printed design are quite a lot cheaper than getting polo shirts which may have embroidered design, like the ones you see for school uniforms.

Personally I quite like the normal tshirt, but maybe it could be an option you take when stating what size you need. The if they are more expensive you can pay the extra up-front when you apply.

Just a random musing.

Just a note to Andrew - I have spent my working life digitising and producing professional embroidery designs for clothing retailers & manufacturers and in the gift trade. I have a lot of contacts in embroidery world. Sure I could get you a quality job done pretty cheaply if you were interested Andrew - no quantity too small, just email me a logo and I can get you quotes.
Regards
Fiona

Hi Fiona, et al,

I was having just the same thoughts about polo-shirts, Nice though the teeshirts are perhaps it would be nice to have a choice. I'd certainly go for a polo shirt.

Cheers,
Dougie.
