Some of you might have noticed that pompeycarpet had basically been challenged to ‘design a cup final t-shirt’ within a forum thread – click here

Well he did this, but Chix then took the idea a step further and developed it a little more! After doing more work on a design, he has then taken the next step of approaching a printer to get a quote to have them printed up for us.

So here is the ‘100% unofficial Vital Pompey cup final t-shirt’ in mock up form, bare this in mind, this is just to give you an idea of the shirt.

Vital Pompey T-Shirt

The more of us that are interested the cheaper they will become!

The maximum price will be £11 – yep I know we do not want to pay that, I do not want to pay that and if we do not get enough interest we probably will not do them. If enough are sold we will only have to pay £6 each, which I dare say we would sell enough… however to get them for as little as £6 each we need ‘concrete yes I would like one please’ answers, and ASAP!

If we get enough early interest Chix can place an order tomorrow, and if he does this by then we will have them – and so will you – by cup final day and there is a good chance we will have them by the Fulham game – so as a meeting will be planned (not that I have told you yet!) at the Milton Arms that day you can come along and collect it.

Obviously there will only be a limited number, but in order to make it even worthwhile putting in an order we need a rough idea of how many people want them – hopefully if you say you want one you will take one, otherwise the price per t-shirt for all will rise, the more we sell the cheaper they will be, only £6 each if we sell enough. They are being passed on at face value, so no profit is made here!

Posting the t-shirts is a possibility if collecting in person proves a problem for the Fulham game – if they are ready – or in the week in the lead-up to the cup final. You would simply need to provide me with your address and I will put you in touch with Chix and he will organise the payment and posting, with you obviously having to cover this too.

One final thing there is a thought of reversing the position of the Knight and the Dragon so they sit under Pompey and Cardiff names as it is thought this could be better. To be honest I am not sure they will look as good with the characters reversed, but that is just my opinion…

So if you want a shirt or shirts say below, stating how many and give us a size S, L, M, XL etc.

Size Guide
Regular Fit
S – 35/37′
M – 38/40′

XL – 44/46′
XXL – 47/49′

XS – 8
S – 10

The shop suggests that Lady-Fit t-shirts are cut pretty small so they recommend that if in doubt go for the size above.
