And in case anyone was wondering...

Another shirt that should be retroed. It went with the Futures.

After Jimmy Fallon's Saved By The Bell reunion, I decided to watch a few episodes. Caught Zack wearing this in one episode.

They retroed the old school logo from the 1's a few years ago. Hope they bring it back.

The white shirt shows shipping on 2/25 which isn't bad if true and the red is 3/27.

hey, I still stand by what I said last week (that those shirts are pretty cool) but maybe you should make some without the name on the front like that?  It makes things kinda confusing.  Just my opinion/suggestion though, continue to  do your thing

NYC757,

Fair question and bottom line: you're not too far off the mark.

I wanted to create the shirts and originally make my last name the brand. Unfortunately there is a company in Mississippi that makes doll clothes under my name and it is trademarked. Odd, but true. So...I had to come up with an original name. Not easy.

Everything is trademarked in the clothing world. You can trademark a name as long as it doesn't infringe upon the likeness of another name that sells a similar product. So no one can sell "Nikeee" shoes because the US trademark office would never approve it. For a new name to be approved, it has to be pretty out there (at least in the clothing manufacturing spectrum).

So thought about tennis related names. A volley, like "serve and volley" style tennis is my kind of game. I kept playing with the letters. The -aix suffix is french and used in the name of several places in France like "Aix-la-Chapelle', Aix-les-Bains', Aix-la-Chapelle".

So, yes it has no meaning.

As for the pronunciation, for trademarking purposes my researcher told me ( I am not making this up) you shouldn't pronounce the 'x' at the end. So I'm left with something that sounds like vuh-lay, a two syllable word when said fast enough in conversation comes out "vlay" that rhymes with clay.

At least you'll have the name after you get hit with that cease and desist for the product designs.

Repped!!! 

 

Im sure it was quite the challenge, you should put this on your site unless I just missed the definition on there... back stories sell products.

Just posted these to the outlet thread, and thought I'd drop this info off here. I know there is not a lot of love for the turbo greens, but for that price these looked pretty good to me.
