Everyone I've talked to said they really preferred the black and were
happy to get black last time around. I think it might be nice to have a
blue one though... :)

Does anyone have a fashion designer t-shirt design that they like? We
should make something that someone would want to wear even if they
didn't know what Fedora was - then they will start a conversation with
the T-shirt wearer - 'where did you get that shirt?' which opens up the
opportunity to sell Fedora :)

I obviously like Hello Kitty t-shirts like the ones on sanrio.com but I
don't think that helps :) These are some top-rated ones on threadless
that might be inspirational!

Every distro and conference has a t-shirt with a logo slapped on it.
Let's use this as an opportunity to shine :)
