Fedora Ambassadors Polo Shirt
During the FAD EMEA 2006 we made the decision, that we all should wear the same shirt at events. We did not want a uniform, but something that would make us stand out, so that visitors/attendees could visually identify us.
The requirements for this shirt were:
- high quality (fabric)
- easy to wash [embroidery based logos/text(stitched not printed)]
- not in a t-shirt-style
- long life time
- independent from events and Fedora t-shirt versions
- match the Logo Guidelines
Due to these requirements, the "Fedora Ambassador Polo Shirt" was the conceived with the following design specifications:
- Shirt: Pique Polo Slazenger, 200 g/qm, 100 % BW,sizes: S; M; L; XL; XXL
- Shirt Color: Pantone ® 2935 (the brighter fedora blue)
- 1. embroidery logo: thorax top left - Fedora Symbol 4cm wide
- 2. embroidery logotext right upper arm - Fedora Standard Logo (white types) under them "Ambassador" in U001 Font (white types - Complementary Font according to the Guidlines) 9 cm wide
The only problem with quality, is the attached increased price tag, that is, the polo shirts are not cheap. The cost per polo shirt is around 25 EUR (depends on the purchase order quantity).
