    Starting this one early:

    Can we get a different color shirt next year? Looking at the logo a yellow shirt would look great...

    A metal concert shirt that isn't black? Are you trying to change our name to the yellow shirts?

    It seems like this topic comes up every year or two. There are a lot of opinions of what would look good, and some people who only like black. And of course, there was the dark blue ProgPower XI shirt, and the dark green ProgPower XIII shirt (did those not sell as well?). I personally would be into a dark red shirt. But considering past comments, it kinda seems like people who only like black might avoid a shirt of any other color, whereas most people who would like another color won't skip a black one just because it's black.

    I understand doing a general run of more than one color may also not be cost effective, but I wonder... with the online companies that now offer custom shirts with a variety of designs, with the customer's choice of shirt color, I wonder if it would be possible to offer more color options for only those who pre-order and are willing to spend the extra money?

    Whatever... just a thought. I actually think black is generally the best color for this type of shirt... the only issue being that metal fans often have so many black shirts that some variety can be nice at times!

    Grey would be really cool, just like the Falconer shirt this year.

    I am very happy that I got a grey and brown Evergrey shirt this year. So that makes 15 black 1 grey and 1 brown so far :)

    The green PPUSA shirt, while okay is my least favorite I like the original Blue one from PPUSA 1 and still have it.

    I actually like the green one the best. Black actually keeps me from buying one just because it's yet another black shirt. I wouldn't mind some form of blue.

    I've sold metal shirts for 25 years and could count on one hand the non-black metal band shirts that sold well. That isn't to say that it couldn't be done with some cool looking blue or red or purple ones... all I'm relaying is my experience with non-black. The only exception was a tie-dye deep blue Blind Guardian title that moved very well.

    But hey, like Shreddy sez... Black is the new black. :headbang: :kickass:
