#VMworld T-shirt Review Part 2

First up in this review is the T-shirt from Veeam

2014-08-29 07.44.45 2014-08-29 07.45.08

Name: Veeam
Model: American Apparel 100% combed Cotton
Size: 2XL
Quality: A pretty standard black material, that has held its shape very nicely after being washed.
Print: Veeam has chosen a spoof over the hit series Orange is the new Black with their own Green is the new Black. The back has a kinda big print about availability.
Score: 6/10
Conclusion:  Had Veeam kept this to the front logo and a small Veeam logo on the back or on the sleeve I would have rated it higher. It however feels very nice and I have worn this in public.


Drop The Box is the next shirt up.

2014-08-29 07.32.37


Name: Drop the Box
Model: Port and Company 100% Preshrunk Cotton
Size: XXL
Quality: The quality of this shirt was somewhat stiff, and was one of the shirts I gave away to the Homeless in San Francisco
Print: A fairly big logo on the front and a plain green back.
Score: 4/10
Conclusion: Sorry VMUG, but I really dislike this green colur, and the stiffness of the shirt made me give it away.




2014-08-29 07.19.14 2014-08-29 07.19.39


Name: Rightscale
Model: Next Level apparel XXL ,100% Cotton
Size: XXL
Quality: Again a very nice quality shirt from Next Level, and it holds up its shape very nicely after being washed.
Print: A big Right Scale logo on the front, and a nice small print on the back
Score: 7/10
Conclusion: Not too flashy, and a good quality shirt. And also one I would wear in public.


VMturbo is the last one in this review

2014-08-29 07.13.49 2014-08-29 07.13.13

Name: VMturbo
Model: Port and Company 100% Preshrunk Cotton
Size: XXL
Quality: A shirt that I never even considered taking home with me. Felt quite ok.
Print: A weird message on the front and an odd looking spaceship on the back, with text stating you must learn control
Score: 4/10
Conclusion: This is almost as bad as the Zerto shirt from last year. An ugly green colur and a seemingly mindless print. Not something I would wear, not even at the conference.

Second Sponsor T-shirt Review

Its time to review a few more Sponsor T-shirts. This time its 2 really good ones, and 2 that are so and so. Good examples on what to do and not to do.

First up is the Official VMworld 2012 T-shirt

VMworld 2012 frontVMworld 2012 back

Name: Official VMworld T-shirt of 2012
Model: Hanes Tagless 100% cotton
Size: XXL
Quality: After quite a few washes this shirt has only lost a bit of its shape, a big step up from 2010 and 2011 shirts
Print: The print is still visible, but is a bit faded. Its somewhat more “in your face” than the previous years.
Score: 6/10
Conclusion: The fabric still feels good, its a bit stiff after washing but that quickly subsides. A good shirt.

Next up is an F5 T-shirt from 2010

F5 2010 Front F5 2010 Sleeve

Name: F5 2010
Model: Hanes Tagless 100% Cotton
Size: XXL
Quality: This shirt has been washed a lot and still keeps its shape, really nice.
Print: The print is a bit faded. but still good. No print on the back side
Score: 10/10
Conclusion: This is a shirt done the perfect way. Good job F5. A nice catchy image on the front and a very discreet logo on the sleeve. One need to look closely to figure out who made this shirt. This is really nice done by F5 and a shirt i wear often when off from work.

3rd one is from 3Par

3Par 2010 front 3Par 2010 sleeve

Name: 3Par from 2010
Model: C Port and Company 100% Preshrunk Cotton
Size: XXL
Quality: After a lot of , this T-shirt has kept its shape perfectly 
Print: The print is still visible, but is faded. Considering how much this has been washed since 2010 its pretty nice
Score: 9/10
Conclusion: The fabric is still soft and nice, colors a bit faded but again a shirt of good quality. And the 3Par logo isn’t that obvious, again a good shirt. 3Par has changed a lot since HP bought them.

Last one is from Veeam

Veeam 2010 front Veeam 2010 back

Name: Veeam 2010
Model: Gildan Heavy Cotton, 100% Preshrunk Cotton
Size: XXL
Quality: After some washes, this T-shirt has gone a bit out of shape, but still is wearable
Print: The print is still visible, but is a bit faded
Score: 3/10
Conclusion: A nice logo on the front. “Virtualization Lover”, but then the back is completely hopeless, way too much info and not a shirt i would wear anywhere but at home, when only the family is around.
