I ordered a couple of Polo shirts for Donna and I for the Lemans trip from Marci at SVT. They have the new GT logo with Ford Performance underneath and having LeMans 2016 embroidery on other side.

My two cents on the "Powered by EcoBoost" on the back: No.

I can't speak for everyone here, but GT owners (and enthusiasts) are not the same breed of car guy that NASCAR fans are. HUGE glaring logos are not what many of us are looking for. We're looking for classy and subtle - something you could wear to places beyond just the race track.
Speaking of NASCAR, I watched "Taladdega Nights" last night and damn was that funny. Shake and Bake, Baby!

Oh hell, Son, I was high that day. That doesn't make any sense at all, you can be second, third, fourth... hell you can even be fifth! :biggrin

Embroidery of something that intense would be cost prohibitive but I do like the idea of changing the colors on the jacket embroidery to something with more contrast.

Would "Powered by Ecoboost" be of interest on the back of the jacket?
This embroidery is on the back of the jacket. Because of the colors it's easier to see in a pops nicely. I would leave this on the back maybe even make it slightly larger. I think there is a market for both subtle items and more bold items. It depends on the venue where you're going to wear it. If you attend the races you want to support the team and some Bold items. If you want to wear polo shirt out for dinner than a nice subtle silhouette image would be suitable. I bought some of both.. :thumbsup

We know you're both fashion victims :wink

But more Ford merchandising stuff would be great, especially clothing.

Haven't looked at the Shop, do you support shipping to Europe ?

Cost prohibitive??? You must be joking! We are still talking about a $400K+ car.........right!?!?
I saw a lot of GT fans at Daytona wearing GT clothing. not all were not necessarily GT owners just fans .. Some items need to be affordable.. I understand that.. I was told over $300 for a large Embroidery .. so that might limit the marketability..

This is my favorite t-shirt. I like the front and the back graphic. The Super soft cotton blend material is very comfortable. I have three or four of the shirts . I wear them daily , they make a great shirt for the gym

That T-shirt is my personal favorite as well. I appreciate all the comments and will be posting some new items to share in the coming days. We are also getting ready to release the replica wear for the race team as well.

See how this gives reference to the race cars and a crest of some sort that signifies the significance of racing the GT after 50 years. Ford Livery would have to be incorporated obviously. This could easily be transferred to t-shirts ect.

Also, T-Shirts that don't feature the super heavy, gloppy painted on printing. I was excited at all of the merch at Daytona, but I can't stand that type of printing.

Yep. I try not to wear those kind of t-shirts- hate how they feel. Some t-shirts have a design on them that you can't really feel, unlike those thick and barely flexible types.

Subtle?? How about getting BOLD!? Sorry to say, but the merchandise on the sites you shared are boring and show very little creativity. You've got a new car that has bleeding edge technology and makes HUGE statements with a CREATIVE design (where form also meets function). The owners of theses care won't/don't mind trumpeting that fact.
Perhaps subtle was the wrong descriptor. I like a eye-catching design. Yes, some color accents can be used. I just would like 1-2 pieces of apparel that you could wear to a casual business event. That would circulate in different events and different crowds. Something that a die hard car enthusiast might wear to a non car event. That's how you can expand the brand message and enjoyment. And no, not for every piece, but just a couple.

Here's an example of what I think is distinctive, yet still exudes class.





And here are some examples of what I consider less subtle and possibly overbold.

We bought them. They were not included, and yes they are top notch. really full team gear. We spent A LOT on the GREAT gear that was there.

Any idea who was selling them? The fordcollection.com people, someone else?
