"walls of the city" logo conceptualized by Oleg Volk and executed by Linoge. Logo is © "walls of the city".


Spent all day at a gun show.  Do not have much content to show for it (might have something in the near future), but I did finally break even on my Russian Origami t-shirts… so, what do you all think of this: 


This coloration (a good suggestion from MAJ Mike) is only available in not-made-in-the-USA t-shirts, but it does not seem as though that particular feature was as big a selling point as I had originally thought.  On the flip side, assuming I have cause to order more than 10 shirts, this will drive prices down a good bit.  I need to even up the graphic a little better – the dial plate should be more centered in the curves – but this is the general idea.

    Ah, *now* I get it. Just needed a second look–on the1st glance I was thinking it was some kind of cross between Dali’s watches and a time bomb. Heh. Got it now. Clever design–I’m just more of a button-down guy myself. Also, now that I’m back in the PROIllinois (by necessity more than choice), I have to be a bit discreet about certain things.

    That color looks like sand to me. All Army and Air Force shirts are sand, and Berry Amendment mandated made in the USA. Should be sourceable.

  • M14 magazines go up to 20, and their square shape would fit better in the shirt

  • @ Publius: Yeah, I meant it to be a little subdued, though the newer version is less so.

    @ SgtRed: You would not happen to know who makes them, do you? American Apparel does not seem to offer that color, and other companies are annoyingly difficult to shop.

    @ Weer’d Beard: Yeah, but those are even less obvious ;).

  • @ Linoge:
    Who sez Less Obvious is better!

    I love that non-gunnies have NO idea what my ENDO “Builder’s Club” T-Shirt means!

    Maybe I’m becoming a hipster….

  • I dig “stealthy”, but I am wary of “incomprehensible”. I fear the “Russian Origami” was too much the latter.
