Overalls

Now I own a smart new pair of Proban overalls I wish to customise them. I will have my BMMC badge to put on but are we allowed to "advertise". I, with a group of friends are setting up a supporters club, toca-on-tour,and I was wondering if I would be able to wear a badge/patch to advertise our web site. Also I would like to get my name put on my overalls does anyone know a company that does this (I am no good with a needle and thread!)

Claire as far as I know, and I haven't asked anywhere, you can put what badges you like on your overalls providing it is a legitimate organisation and there is no bad language.

Have you thought about producing baseball caps and metal badges? You could advertise the supporters club with those but make sure that the main colour of the cap isn't a flag colour.

I can't help you with the sewing but I'm sure there will be many replies from your part of the country.

Thanks Kaybee, baseball hats and fleeces are being looked into, we are going for gray so should be ok.

Hi Claire, Advanced Wear and Safety at Ashford will embroider your name on the overals at a cost!

KayBee is right about badges, as long as they are not offensive then there are no problems. As for things conflicting with flags. It really applies more to coats or body warmers. Anything like that which could easily be mistaken for a flag is frowned upon.

Take care and see you in April with any luck!

Stephen.

Claire I should have added as long as you have bought the overalls you can do what you want about badges within reason. If, however, you have been GIVEN sponsored overalls then in most cases it is a nono.

The only overals we were not allowed to sew badges on were the RAC Grand Prix overals of a few years ago.

The only time patches can be a problem is if they are cigarette advertising. I spent an entire GP in the pit lane at Silverstone with a roll of gaffer tape in my pocket with instructions to cover ANY cigarette references if the owner of the clothing would not remove it!! OH, the power of TV !!!!

I dont blame you for wanting to put badges on your overalls, cover up the orange, not the best colour are they!!
They are visable but hey the question "does my bum look big in this" always comes back with a YES! even if your size 8!!!!
I think AWS are quite reasonable for sewing names, under a tenner. (but dont quote me on that)

Pitpopsie,

Welcome to Ten-Tenths and in particular the Marshals Forum.

Size 8? I'm trying to remember the last time I saw a woman marshal who was a size 8...Hmmmmmmm...let me think...hmmmmmm...nope, the memory escapes me!

(only joking)

Stephen.

I'm now wandering around the office trying to think of a Brands Hatch marshal, female, size ten that I know. Hmmmm, could be Karen I guess?

Ok, time for a clue.....please!

Hi Pitpopsie have to agree the overalls are not flattering and I am along way off being a size 10, this keeps me going to the gym 4 times a week and reducing the calorie intake!!
Does anyone have a contact number for AWS I may give them a call and see if they can help me.

The reason I couldn't become a marshall!

Claire - there's always M&S and "tuck yer tummy in" pants! I've been there!

They got their first outing yesterday so they aren't looking quite so new but very bare compared to those of the more experinced marshals!! I am still working on decorating them but don't feel quite so self conscious in them.

The number of patches doesn't always indicate the experience of a marshal... I've been marshalling for about 15 years and gone through several sets of overalls which have gone from bare through to completely covered and back to bare (I can't be bothered with all that sewing...)
