    Yes we are serious. We even sell them with loss, as it includes VAT and shipping costs :)

    We have ordered a super small test batch which means the prices are high compared to massive containers coming from Asia and thought it's a nice gimmick for those who would like to have one.

    We are a fan of buying local and all shirts and created here in the Netherlands hence the steep costs.

    Future batches in larger numbers will give us some solid discount to drop the prices a bit but cheap they will never be as that is not possible.

    I have looked down this route/option 2-3 times in the last 2-3 years regarding RSS branded merchandise T-Shirts/ Jumpers and such / Coats,
    and yes its very expensive unless you order say 500+ to 1000 at a time, I do not think people realize the costs involved, specially with included VAT and shipping costs.

    It's a small loss, it's more like break even but with the postage and paypal fees on top that tips the scales. The batch was ordered as a test and to supply some guys who are attending events as staff and some members who joined the sim expo trip iirc. There are some left and the price as is covers the majority of the cost and means they don't just sit there unused. Upping it to 40 or 50 euros in order to try and make profit would make them very expensive indeed. Volume is generally the way you would try to make money on something like this as there really is a ceiling price on something like a polo beyond which it would be impossible to entice anyone into buying.

    I just bought a similar shirt the other day and it cost the same WITHOUT the awesome logos. Where do you do your shopping, dumpsters?

    I see, the use of limited is not just a marketing gimmick. Now it makes sense.

    No need for that, fanboy.

    Damn, really want one but, alas - 'Merica.

    Would be buying one right now if not for that - they look great and would be a fun conversation starter ("RaceDepartment? What the hell is that?!?")

    Ahh geees,,,,
    Some of you must be that tight you probably squeak when walking. :D

    It's actually good that we have been given the opportunity to buy these, at a fair price. I guess the purchase being good/bad depends on the quality of the product and (if) the logos easily fade or peel.

    That is my only concern but was happy to purchase one.

    No need for joking? Yeah our World is going that way so maybe not surprising. "Fanboy"? Not being a member = "fanboy" seems weird, but ok.
