    Snobwear desperation

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Ive been admiring the range of polo shirts available through the bean bay. The sizes seem pretty good, but I am big snob and so have engaged on a frantic downsizing program in order to be worthy of such stylish snobbery.

    has anyone else bought an XL size - and do you mind providing your vital statistics so that I can approximate how much further weight loss is required before I can purchase my own?

    My other approach might be to just buy the shirt and make sure I fit it. . .

    Im in the same boat grendel (look out it might sink).

    Maybe Andy or someone could measure an XL from armpit to armpit so we have a rough idea of fit.

    Errr... we did that already!
    You can see it on the on the descriptions when you click on them in BeanBay eg: "Size XL (64cm armpit to armpit)"

    They are bigger then the sizes suggest, I fit into a M ok and Im normally a L or a XL.

    Re: Snobwear desperation

    Ok...
    I have just created a "Snob Your Own" item in the SnobWear section of BeanBay.



    Cannot find your size, colour or style in the Snob Wear range?

    You provide the garment and we will get the CS logo embroidered on it.
    1. Securely safety pin your name and/or invoice number to the item
    2. Include your colour preference for the logo.
    3. Mark where you want the logo to go (chalk is good for that)

    There are a few gotcha’s though:
    To embroid they need a single flat layer so if you want the logo on a pocket you will have to send us the pocket and sew it back on yourself! Most material can take embroidery, some cannot. Cotton is good, lacey underwear might not work so well. If the embroidery people cannot do it then we will refund the embroidery cost but obviously not the freight. We will provide all care but no responsibility for your garment.

    You can send multiple items at once, just select the number of garments below. BeanBay will calculate the return shipping at 500g per item.

    Send your items to:

    Andy Freeman
    coffeesnobs.com.au
    31 Chaucer Street
    Hamlyn Heights
    Vic, 3215



    We need to get these done as a bulk lot to keep the price low so allow approximately 2-4 weeks for the return of the item.

    Excellent work Andy.

    Youve saved at least 3 of us from dieting!

    Question about the logo, is it doable on the sleeve?
    EG: Like 5-10cm above where the current WWW is on the shirts?

    And are there any colour limitations for the logo? Or any suggestions, rule of thumb for darks/lights?

    Re: Snobwear desperation

    Sounds good - I saw the armpit to armpit thing but couldnt figure out how that translated to round.

    The send your own option is great - but since Ive started on the weight loss already I think now Ill just wait till I get where I am going with that - at which time the standard sizes should fit!

    Nice shirts.

    Sure, as long as you mark where it should go and its not on a join and it can fit over the thingy they need to put it on ;-)

    If you are going to pick some weird colour then you will need to include a sample for them to try and get close to (salmon mousse maybe?)... else, most colours I guess. When I got the 50 Snob Wear shirts done I just asked they were a good contrast to the shirt colour and let them pick them.

    Man... you DO try to read every thread, dont you?

    Youre a busy man Andy, and I appreciate the lengths you go to to respond to as much as you can.

    I also really appreciated the chance to knock up a coffee on the Giotto on Sunday.

    Thanks for the info on the shirts. When I find some decent polos, I think 2 or 3 will be wending their way to you for "snobbification" (seriously - go out and trademark that!)

    Cheers - and I thought you were away?

    Brett.
