Anybody buying a $35 t-shirt?

Post by resomedia » Wed Aug 15, 2018 6:13 pm

It's been a long wait as it appears officially licensed swag is now finally available (and in Europe only unfortunately). But, you're going to pay for it. Ouch. Who's in?

I don't pay to promote for-profit brands. That's dumb. If anything they should either pay me to show off their branding, or give away the shirt. Then I'd consider it.

$35? Fat chance.....

To me it's not about "expensive", just I don't want to advertise for free. If a shirt has a big logo or says "Nike" or whatever, it's not for me.

Pay me and I'll wear it.

I'd pay for it.
There is nothing wrong with me spending all the time at enhancedbets org. I just want to know more about winnings. That site gives me the right mood.

This stuff is for people that want to show the world they're making their own music? So mostly people that are looking for a response. I also think they should give a dozen shirts/hoodies to regular customers so they can spread them across they're clients. :-)

I'd buy merch from a band as well, since that's how bands make money. If I go to a concert that might be a way to show additional support since these days nobody wants to pay for art/content any more.

I've already paid Steinberg for software though, so....

You use the guitars to make music.
Do you use your T-shirt to make music?

I use my Adidas Adizero Adios for running. The can have the logo.
I use my Kestrel Talon bike for biking. It can have the logo.

T-shirts? Nope. Hats? Nope.

Pay me, and I'll gladly advertise your brand....
