    Moderator's update: The shirts are available at http://www.ilfordphoto.com/shirts/

    Dear All,

    Many thanks for all your ideas and suggestions, and who knows we may make some baseball caps, mugs, darkroom aprons, whatever, in the future :

    What we have done, as promised, is have had made some polo shirts and some rugby shirts, very high quality, in black, with a white, discrete, embriodered ILFORD Photo logo.

    We have had made 1,000 polo shirts and 250 rugby shirts and this will be a strictly limited edition.

    All the information, photographs, sizes and prices, ordering information etc will go live on our ILFORD Photo website on Tuesday 28th August, I am afraid we cannot accept orders or ship before that date. The price will also include shipping by mail worldwide:

    We will also donate $1.00 to APUG for every one sold:


    Once again thanks to APUGGERS for asking us to make them, which is why you get to know before anyone else, and we really hope you like them.

    Great news, Simon! Be sure to include some proper information on sizes. There are quite some different 'measurement systems' out there, and it's happened to me once to often that I ended up with a t-shirt that would have fit 2 people. (Note to self: if you need Large, and order in the US, you can order Medium or Small...)
    :tongue: :tongue:

    That sounds great. I have seen the older thread and it seemed that the idea died out. I hope I will namage to get one. I do hope that there will be a proper sizing info. I am more on the "S" side.

    I've left a reminder on my phone, I'll be in Alaska by then but I'll be sure to order one.
    I'll wear it with pride, alongside that one shirt with an otter on it that I have.

    I'm also looking forward to placing an order. Can think of many places I can proudly wear mine;

    local retailers who've increased their digi sections, our local botanical gardens where I'm asked 6 times a morning if my view camera is antique, the next television interview about my photography :smile: .... aaaah endless.

    Cool! I'll order one. Now if I could just get Ilford to make Delta 3200 in 4x5...

    Judging from the reponse here, I think the 1250 shirts are going to sell out in about 1/60 of a second, or so.
