Jackets was created by spculleton

Various students in my school who are involved with different sports and clubs recently got themselves kitted out with stylish new jackets. This got me to thinking, why don't we do that for ourselves?

There are plenty of places which stitch names and logos onto fleece jackets, and it could be a nice way of getting the IFAS and member clubs recognised. We could recognise each other in daylight, and not just by red flashlight! And we could be warm.

Jackets are around fifty euro. If people are interested I can find out more details and shop around a bit more. If enough people want to get these jackets then we can look into designs and so forth.

Any takers?
Shane Culleton.

I'm certainly up for it!

Astro2 got Jackets done a few years ago and they were a big hit. THey were so popular that a mate of mine from Trinity Astronomy and Space Society (TASS, in the days before they dissapeared into oblivion) even bought one!

However, the Biology society here in Maynooth have proper jackets, not just fleeces and they are even cooler and much more usefull for Astrnomers! They are also only 65 Euro!

Enough people seem to be interested that we should probably go ahead with this.

Now the fun begins. What colour, or colours, should the jackets be? Which IFAS logo, Bart's or David's, should we use? Incidentally both are viewable in the files section. Personally I'd like to see the IFAS logo on one side, and club logos, or just names, on the other.

One company sent brochures to the school today. They do waterproof, fleece lines jackets for EURO 29. The bad news is that price is given to a minimum order of 200. I'm sure we could rustle up 200 interested parties between all the clubs. I'll get in touch with that company just to sound things out, but if anyone else has a suggestion ...

Don't know what this will do to the price but. Black with the logos as suggested by shane and how about on the back the plough and polaris rather than having a plain back. Just a suggestion :wink:

Black. Or dark purple or some other morbid dark colour that I would wear.

I think barts would come out best on a fleece, clearer and less colours than the crab logo. As for clubs names, that will start getting expensive, and possibly out of date as more clubs start joining.

The bad news is that price is given to a minimum order of 200. I'm sure we could rustle up 200 interested parties between all the clubs.


Perhaps the A&S shop will sell them for you? ;-)

Black goes with everything!!!

Also just about all the Logos I've seen for the various clubs are designed to be viewed on a black back ground!

200 is a LOT of jackets. I would be able to shift about 20 max here for Astro2 and I doubt that other local clubs will shift many more, perhapots the IAS and the IAA might be able to shift more but 200 still seems like a lot.

I like the idea of the club logos going on one side and the IFAS logo on the other. We did someithng similar for the fleeces we got done here a few years ago where we put the University logo on one side and our logo on the other. I would advise we user my IFAS Logo because it is much simpler and hence easier and cheaper to put onto the jackets.

As for the plough on the back .... I am not so keen on that, seem just a bit naff to me!
