Last year, the good folks at Animal offered customizable t-shirs where u could get ur name put on the back of a shirt. Wuz that cool? Did folks like that?

For 2014, should Animal do customizable tees again, but mebbe a little different this year?

I didn't get to it last year, but I still thought it to be pretty awesome, especially the black jersey style shirt with the white trim. I'd love to hop on that this year, or anything similar.

Maybe a customized printed out poster of yourself if you lifted in the cage? Or if you participated in the bench your bodyweight?

Instead of names, which as I understand it took a long, long time... How about set designs? And ya get to choose? Want a big A logo on a yellow shirt? Boom, done. Want a unique Iconic on a grey shirt? Yup, done and done. So mebbe only a few choices in color tees plus just a few diff Iconic designs and logos and ya get to mix and match. Etc.

Not a new idea, but one I think the expo goers would luv, eh? Only a handful of folks at the Arnold would sport ur exact tee... Makes for a very, very rare LE Animal tee. Plus, for the tee shirt people, only takes a fraction of the time to make Id be guessin...

I LOVE the idea if the customizable shirts... They were kick ass last year...

I'm just wondering if offering TOO many options will dilute the mystique of the Animal gear... I know that I have seen knock offs in different colors, and while I do like some of the "options" I just think it takes away from the impact that the iconics make in a crowd.

Just my .02 ...

I think it's a pretty solid idea, too. I would keep the options low in line with what deanna7272 is saying, maybe have like 3-4 different color shirts, 3-4 different designs.

Thats the plan... So these bad boys would cost more cuz of the custom, but youd also be able to pickup a standard LE shirt or two as well. Stock and custom...

I like the idea, I agree with Big Al on the Tanks too. Would be cool if the limited edition logos had guys like Higa in the Animal Icon, Big Al for the tank etc. Possibly not the best idea for mainstream public, but having the cage pillars reped in a T would bid bad ass in my opinion.

Need more hats for sure. I usually take my hat off before I start sweating, otherwise they would be junked out in 3-4 months.

Please, please consider the big headed folks in the area. "One sized fits all" is more like "one size fits most but not this guy". The black flex-fit with yellow lettering from last year's Cage that is sized L-XL fits PERFECTLY, I wear it all the time. I love the yellow hat with the black logo, but for some reason it is shaped ever so differently and fits more snug.
