Just curious to see who has these over the years. Each shirt is a piece of revscene history and has a story to tell (for me, at least).
If you've even got a pic of someone wearing an RS shirt, post it up. I can probably make a few comments about it and how it came about. Also, mods, if you were part of the process, please feel free to jump in and share your comments.
This one was worn by Karen, aka BellyDancerYuna. Navy blue with a white logo. The logo is the most modern version of the RS logo. It is different from version 1 of the logo (originally designed by DJ Twix who was working for Richmond Ideal Tint and Detail at the time). The version 1 logo is a bit more detailed, whereas the version 2 is a bit chunkier. Also the distance between E and V is more in v2 than v1.
Unfortunately, I dunno who's wearing this below (Kevin aka Ch.28?). This was a summer meet held at A&W parking lot (owned by Superstore). This was a fiasco as A&W had given us the OK to use the lot for the meet, but Superstore manager, the one who owns the lot, was not aware. We had to cut the meet shorter than we wanted to. It was funny because the manager was being a total dick about it and threatened to call the cops and we said, "they're already here at the meet". 0_0 Anyhow, FTW = For the Win obviously. That design was !SG's/Orgasm Donor's I believe. That was when that word was tossed around during that time period. Very simple and basic, yet cheeky. Again, version 2 of the RS logo.
This one here is was modeled by Supersport. As the date shows, it was Summer 2002. This one has the first version of the rs.net logo by DJTwix, but you can't tell from the distance. The image shows the downtown skyline on the left, honda dash on top, honda s2000 & model's face on right, and all our community sponsors at the time (REV, Teamworks, Vader, Ideal Tint, A&J, and Kenny's Fun Club) down the middle. The design came from the winner (who I don't remember now? AbsoluteZero?) of the "best depiction of RS" competition. The rs.net logo on the front was centered, unlike the other ones on the left pec. Oh yeah, and back then rs was small enough to keep track of membership cards
As Razor Ramon HG pointed out, the "yellowish-orangey" ones were only made for moderators/volunteer staff. Just like the pic below here. This picture was taken of P.A.C.E.R.'s mini, a show car for the joint efforts amongst Richmond RCMP, dealerships, community organizations and revscene at Driven to Perform (I forgot which year). In the background is Chooman69, Sorrgwa, and redcivic(?). The only cars I can clearly see in our booth are the mini and Teamwork's SLAMMED rsx (it was the lowest of the lowest setting). This was probably the vendor set-up, the night before Saturday of DTP at the old BC Place. You know, you could always tell it's Teamwork's cars cause they were kind of the first in Vancouver scene to put chrome stickers onto the body of a modified car. Or maybe it was the trademark of Gerald's style. Gerald used to work for Teamworks in Burnaby and now is the fender-rolling expert for Serial Nine. But I digress..anyhow... t-shirts! yes, yellowish-orange. It was a way for us to see from a distance who were members and who were organizing the car meets. Also, we wanted the colour to closely resemble safety vests, well, for safety reasons. We publicly sold all other colour t-shirts except this colour. So if you see the orange shirts, they are a mod/staff or were a former mod/staff =)
Over here is a snapshot of me following !SG (aka Sorrgwa at the time). He's sporting the white rs.net shirt. This was taken at SFU parking lot where we held a car meet there. The turnout was great, the weather was super awesome. The lots at SFU were very spacious and there were no hassles from security. In the pic, you can see Fuzebox holding his phone, looking very terminator-like. He was the network administrator before SkinnyPupp. And, yes, I remember RS members were "bagging" on Fuze much like the same way they are to SP in VAC OT. Hmmm, there's a bit of a trend going on But, seriously speaking, rs members don't realize that techies like ToKS, CoRoNa-X, Fuzebox and SkinnyPupp have contributed very much to the structural growth of the RS community it is today. I've had my differences with each and everyone of them, but they are/were an integral part of RS. So shout-out to them.
The "Eat, Sleep, Revscene" shirt was a special shirt put together with the efforts of myself and Blitzgear. We chose "Olympic Blue" to match the Olympic Volunteer jackets and to pay hommage to Vancouver winning Gold in Men and Women's Hockey. Plus Jacob thought the shade of blue would give the "pop" it needed with it's cheeky message. There was only a small batch made; I had inspected and numbered each one personally as proof. You can see the design in the Spring Meet Video at 5 min 54s. Are there any even left at SoundsGood Auto? I dunno.. but again these were limited in quantity. Unlike the regular RS shirts which have just the stamp on the front and stamp at the back, shirts like the Olympic edition and the RS Contest are actually worth more because of the efforts, designing and details that went into making those shirts.
Well this is my own official rs shirt for the summer 2011 event. Only "1" made.. was meant for shits and giggles. Thanks to carsticka.com.
Refer to my avatar (<--). Mananetwork on my right says he got his in Thailand or something
