|Shirt Style and Fit|
SHIRT DESIGN IS A PROTOTYPE. ACTUAL PROPOSED COLOR IS “PREMIUM HEATHER” If all goes well, product will be the same shirt (Next Level Triblend) quality and style as 2014 and 2017 9•11 Challenge, except this year more styles are available, as shown:
NEW THIS YEAR: Ladie’s scoop neck.
STILL AVAILABLE: Men’s and Youth Crew, Men’s V-neck, and Unisex Hoodie. These are trimmer fit than typical tees, nice drape to them and the ladies liked the Men’s V just fine. The line is soft, very comfortable, even the crew
MY FIT NOTES: I am a Ladie’s Size 8/Medium. I wear a Small in these Men’s Crews and Vs. Usually Men’s smalls are sloppy on me but not these. They are neither clingy nor loose. They skim my body. I don't like a tight fit so these are perfect for me. Ladies who prefer a trimmer fit will probably prefer the Ladies Scoop neck or even the Youth XL Crew. I have not tried a scoop neck. The Hoodie (Unisex) is a trimmer fit than the Crews and Vs. It still fits me, just a bit tighter.
Please order your shirt now. There will be NO second run of shirts. We may have a few at the event but no guarantee of size or availability and the price will be higher. THESE ARE SUCH GREAT SHIRTS to wear and wear again.
|Bring the kids!|
We encourage you to bring your children to observe or participate. Please, no strollers on the steps.
