I actually do like the guitar shirt. :-)
I used to smoke like a chief :) and will still buy a shirt with a pot leaf on it but I understand the feelings about not wanting to wear a shirt with them on it. Looking in the online store he has several pot free shirts and most were available on tour in previous years. Lots of his stuff has the pot leaf onit now because of the success of smoke, and he may or may not occasionally enjoy a smoke now and then. It might take a little time to find it but he does have leaf free shirt designs. I'm just waiting for him to offer an actual hemp shirt with a smoke a little smoke design.
Even the whole skull thing cracks me up when I wear it running around. It's just not "me" but since I support The Chief, I'll continue to wear it.
Yeah I"m in the get something other than pot leaves group. I'm 45 - mom of a 16yo & 12yo...NOT wearing something like that.
Even w/out kids I wouldn't....even back when I was young I wouldn't have.
And I certainly wouldn't buy a shirt for my kids.
There are alot of different fans out there....I think having something a little bit more feminine for the female fans would be nice (remember the light blue Sinners shirt w/the heart and sword/knife thru it - not frilly but definately feminine).
I agree.. if the could ease up that would be cool. I've never smoked anything in my life, so I wouldn't want to wear anything suggesting otherwise, haha. but luckily they do have stuff without it, so I just buy that. my brother picked out the smoke shirt and I bought it for him but he can't really wear it, he's either at school or working. but its what he wanted haha.
I personally have no problem with the pot leaves, and I have never smoked pot in my life, cigars and cigarettes yes, pot no. But, I love my shirts, also bought my 54 year old mother, who is also is a grandmother, the smoke shirt and she wears it proudly and has been asked by many people if she would want to sell them her shirt.
I agree with you, ease up on the marijuana. I'm a 50 year old housewife and mom and the last thing I'm going to buy, and wear, is something with that on it.
Don't get me wrong, I don't mind them I would just like to see something a little more classy that I can proudly wear :).
I happen to really appreciate the merch offerings at shows and online. The designs EC offers are kickass in my opinion. Yeah, I won't wear some of them to work or church (unless it's under another shirt) but by golly I'm breaking them out anywhere else I go. I personally find it extremely unprofessional to wear concert shirts at work in the environment I work in so it's no problem for me to not wear them anyways.
I respect your opinion though that you don't feel comfortable wearing the shirts anywhere. In that case, I probably would refrain from purchasing them in the future.
