I never buy a t shirt with out a pocket because I keep my note pad there. My glasses fall out when I bend over since I don't carry a pack of lucky strikes anymore. L.S.M.F.T.

Thinking we need a variety of design's.......some from some countries would be more than happy to wear a shirt with more then a couple of discreet letters on a pocket.
Different strokes for different folks.

S-3 designs were pretty popular . A pocket on them would encourage me to spend more . A shirt without a pocket is just a booger rag . Just kidding , I think ...........

My vote has always been for the S3 design. I have one that I never wear because it is sort of a souvenir and I would like one or two more to wear around from time to time. I Like having a pocket too.

Booger rag... that's about right. :lol: A no pocket shirt ends up screwing me up all day. It pretty much has to be something big or very important to put a shirt on without pocket(s).

I'm pretty sure something like this was the inspiration behind the S3 T-shirt

S3.JPG
Couldn't find usuable images just like S3.
However I was fooling around & came up with:
s3 teeshirt small.png
My thinking about adding the word "Distillers" is that it doesn't scream
"I MAKE MOONSHINE"

here's another same but different idea:
hd teeshirt.png
to make it appear more "commercial" & just humorous
we could always add "Hazard County Georgia", home of Uncle Jessie.

I think it is a bad idea to advertise that my shed is a desirable target for the local ratbags when they run out of booze on Saturday night.
An old acquaintance of mine used to allege to have made good coin ripping off car stereos when he was younger. They used to drive down the road looking for cars with sound system stickers on them like Alpine or JBL or whatever and it was that simple...so yeah, advertising your interests are not always a good idea. I know guys that have gun and shooting club stickers on their cars who were targeted and had all their guns stolen. lol discrete is good. I like the HD logo above, cant see anyone picking up on that.
I agree with this logic to an extent. But honestly I have to say I am not sure anyone "nowadays" would care or even notice.

I remember in my youth after working countless hours at a factory, I bought a very nice used Rolex. At the time I couldn't have been prouder, thinking when people saw it they would somehow notice ?? Yah right! No-one cares. Just my experiences.

I will wear whatever design that comes from the group vote and not worry about the small percentage of those that might get wise. :)

I played with that HD logo, cleaned it up a little bit.
HD logo.png
It appears most folks want pocket tees & I may have found a company that can supply pocket them.
Keep in mind you will be able to individually choose if you want pocket or not, along with the colors you like.
Waiting to hear back from them on details including pricing.

Here's a couple of ideas:
Black ink on a light gray shirt.
Gray w Black Front.png
Gray w Black Back.png
Also in my previous business I did a lot of yellow on Forrest Green shirts like this:
Green Yellow Front.png
Green Yellow Back.png
Also I THINK they will have long sleeve tees, hoodies and quite a few other products that you can add the logo to at the same time you are supporting the website.

One last thing -
I have NO financial interest or ownership in HD. Don't even know who does.
But for our purposes, I've spent quite a bit of time on them & consider these logos copyright protected.
IF you would like to use them to have something locally done, I will be happy to provide you copies for limited use AFTER you make a donation to Home Distillers. I think that's more than fair. 8)

Just wondering why the logo says " HD distillers"
Wouldnt just plain "HD" do
" Home Distiller Distillers " just sounds wrong to me.
Otherwise I think the logos look great. :thumbup:

I'm with you there salt I though the same. At the same time HD is a Harley acronym that will confuse some more.

Well my thought was that Home Distiller would be too indiscreet.
I didn't think about Harleys at the time, personally don't believe it will be an issue.
Here is another option, this sample light gray ink on a black shirt.

Again to remind you, there can be several options.
If you're not comfortable with this one, don't order it.

Trust me : Harley Davidson retailers will sue over any copyright infringements . Real or imagined . It's what they do . I've been a Harley guy since 1963. Still am .
Nevertheless , HD dealers are pricks .

Can we get someone whose initials are HD to design it?
Might work.

I'm beginning to think I've opened a big can of worms.

As to Harley, they had nothing to do with this logo.
I spent several years in the print & design business.
I did find a logo design online, NOT copyrighted & I made enough significant changes that creates a new image.

But after your comment, I did a google search of Harley logos and I don't see anything close to this.
But another search of "HD Logos" should put any fears to rest.
Just one of many sites contains 2,216 logos using the letters HD.

Unless George or some noob gets a shirt, puts it on, wears it in to an HD dealership, finds the owner & says,
"LOOKIE AT WHAT I GOT!"
I don't think there'll be a problem.

Here's two things I played with & created.

edit (I think this logo will have to be shopped out to clean it up for printing.)


S3 Bondoni logo.png

Best thing to do is for someone who prefers the S3 logo, do a google search : "S3 logo design files" and see if a style you like pops up.
