Throughout the years many pipe-smokers have asked me if they could buy one of those fancy Dutch/Belgian Pipe Smokers Forum t-shirts they had seen on pictures of meetings. Well, now you have the chance! Forum member Peter (forum nickname “Eliminator”, so don’t mess with him!) is organizing a new batch of t-shirts and sweaters. They are (mostly) designed by myself and printed by a renowned company in Rotterdam.
There are 3 designs for the shirts and sweaters:
Biker, Tripod and Smoking Goat
The sizes are S, M, L, XL, XXL, 3XL, 4XL and 5XL. Up until XXL the brand of the t-shirts and sweaters is Fruit of The Loom. For the larger sizes the brand is Gildan. Here is a size-chart for Fruit of the Loom and here is one for Gildan.
The prices for the t-shirts (excl. shipping costs):
– Tripod shirt: €17,50
– Biker shirt : €22,50 (more expensive because of a multi-coloured print on the back)
– Smoking Goat shirt : €17,50
The prices for the sweaters (excl. shipping costs):
– Tripod sweater: €27,50
– Biker sweater: €32,50 (more expensive because of a multi-coloured print on the back)
– Smoking Goat sweater: €27,50
The shipping costs (incl. packaging materials):
NL – envelop post until 2 kg €4,50 (max. 2 t-shirts, no sweaters) / package €8,00
BE/UK – envelop post until 2 kg €12,00 (max. 2 t-shirts, no sweaters) / package €14,00
USA – envelop post until 2 kg €12,00 (max. 2 t-shirts, no sweaters) / package €25,00
You can place your order before 30 September by e-mailing Peter: firstname.lastname@example.org. He will then keep you updated about the order and the payment (Paypal) process.
Very important to know is that there is a minimal order amount of 10 pieces per shirt/sweater. No, you don’t have to order 10 pieces, but in total (the amount ordered by Dutch/Belgian forum members and you) it has to be 10 or more. So it could happen that when you order something the total is less than 10 and the order can’t go through. If this is the case you will be notified by Peter.
Needless to say this all is a labour of love. Peter and myself are not making any money with it, we just try to break even.
