Might just be today though, so be quick...

I've been waiting for a long time now to get a t-shirt with the Martini Racing branding, no way I was paying 45 quid for one though! £13.50 much more reasonable wink

I'm tempted, for £15 you should get a decent quality hoodie with just the initial LS on it!

I ordered sale clothing from several different companies at the time I started the thread... anyone want an ironic guess at who is (still yet to arrive) last in the delivery stakes?



Oh Williams, I will always support you (I'm Britsh, so I love an underdog, the privateer team against the big boys, etc); I even used to live in Didcot when you did... could you please stop being just a little bit crap at everything these days? It would make it soooo much easier to keep on loving you!

Unless you happen to be in the pits at a Grand Prix I can’t think of anytime I’d want to be seen
Wearing any of that stuff even at 70% off!

Exactly

Have never understood peoples need to buy insane amounts of apparel, most of it is cheaply made, looks hideous anywhere, even at a GP, and is very time limited.

Still, if people will buy it, like most things, someone will make it!!

There are some exceptions however, some retro stuff looks fine, but a lot of modern stuff is gaudy, cheap and poor quality.

I've still got a Marussia coat that was sold cheap after they folded. Zip broke after 6 months laugh

Thanks for the heads up OP... I think the Martin Williams stuff looks great and happy to be wearing what I just bought. Couple of T shirts a nice water proof jacket for my boat and a good looking large automatic umbrella.
Any one for a Martini? I’ll be having a nice ice cooled one tonight.

I raided the same website for the same Marussia stuff. I bought a beanie hat, a flag, and a rain jacket. The zips on the pockets of the jacket never worked, but it keeps the rain off and (just about) fits my athletic prop/forward/rugby player build. It's also a talking point in some respects, I spoke with an autistic lad for about 20 minutes once about Marussia and F1 in general.

Was hoping to get another beanie hat to go with my Marussia one, only so that while one is being washed I can wear the other while working on the car. But I'll make do with the wallet, flag, notebooks and "Mid-layer" jacket/jumper thing. One must decorate one's garage accordingly.

I will say though that their website isn't great on the checkout. Character limited fields on addresses? Come on now boys you can do better.

I don't buy insane amounts, just the occasional top.

I have always found F1 (and MotoGP stuff) to be very good quality, which it bloomin' should be for the price (I only buy on sale though wink ).
In fact, it usually lasts long enough that it becomes retro - I only just retired my MTV Simtek t-shirt...


Anyhow, it has arrived now and is perfectly nice quality for the dosh, especially the midlayer which will be used as exactly that - warm but not bulky.



(I also have some Marussia stuff. The jacket is worn for messing about with cars and stuff as it's too cheap to care if it gets oily/damaged etc; the t-shirts are nice technical tees and show me where else you can buy those for 3 or 4 quid?)

The Marussia stuff was great!

Especially those tech. T-shirts great for sport and getting sweaty because they dont show the damp patches.

Isn't this service normally outsourced, or simply just licensed to a merch specialist? I don't think there's somebody at the factory knocking this stuff out. I doubt the team has much to do with it at all beyond receiving a cheque for the use of their name and logo.

Out of date? Yes.
Cheap? Yes.
Instantly Retro? Absolutely.
