They used one of those generic merchandising companies where they just branded their logo on an array of crap that included a thong.

I just hope if we go this road, we choose a company that doesn't just half-ass it like that and that we don't get the cheap, thin cotton shirts that shrink to the size of napkins in the wash and just have a logo shoddily slapped on it. I want good quality t-shirts, and more formal stuff too like good quality golf shirts, long sleeve shirts, fleeces, etc. We need to represent properly.

Having seen guys from the commissioning group at our company (in my day job) go out and get branded shirts and fleeces and laptop bags and the like, I have appreciated the fact that they spent the extra money and got good quality stuff that helps make the company look like a first class organization. They made sure they got the good brand shirts and the good emroidery, etc etc, and it looks sharp.

We need to be world class with our stuff too, even if it costs a little bit more. No HF thongs.

I don't think any of us could pull off that look.

Well if it makes you more confident, then by all means lets get you a BP thong for your meeting with Mr. Leiweke

That would be a non-starter in any normal round of negotiations. Although, he could fashion one of the freebie shirts into one and uh, model it for him. It could actually be the ploy we need to dissuade and sour the new logo push.

World class, eh? Then I've got a suggestion for a shirt:

Nothin works better than a old, fat boy in a thong. They would immediately be yelling "anything you want, anything, just put your pants back on."

I'll go with you then and wait in the car until called upon, if needed.

"OH GOD! There's another one!"
