    Taufik Hidayat THL t-shirts for sale at San Gabriel Valley BC today. They are being sold for US $28+tax. I was told they've sold six of them in a couple of hours.

    6 sales isn't great, considering that one of Taufik's main reasons for competing in the US Open was to promote the line...

    $28 though, that's cheap as.

    Errr...US$28 is not that cheap...just reported 500,000 jobless last month and recession enduring in US of A, California broke and huge deficit...I can only wish Mr TH luck...now, if those THL thingie can make me play like a TH, even play like an aging TH which will be enough to beat the crap out of my playing buddies:p:D, I may buy one...otherwise, I stick to my no name brand of drifit costing C$9.99 and cotton Nike Tees costing US$6 and lotsa of free Nike drifit tee with supplier logo and name on them that are given to me free:D:p;)

    I should have qualified my statement =P

    It's cheap to someone living in Ireland, who is a dear fan of Hidayat, and who considered paying €60 for one of the same style shirts that he wore in the AE that didn't even have HIDAYAT. T on the back.

    Get me now? :p

    It looks pretty nice, especially the yellow/orange/black one in the 3rd pic. ;)

    Hmm..

    ..am i going to buy one @ US$28??..Yeah, call me Mr. Cheapo, but no, i probably will not.:p
    But, yes, if i have a chance to go to Asia, next time, and buy it, then i'd consider it..;)..Now, if Taufik were to give me one for free as a gift, then yes, i'd gladly accept it.:cool:
    ..i heard the only people who bought them were his die-hard Indonesian supporters. We'll give you a heads up sometimes next week, on the sales, when he competes in the U.S. Open.
    ..i can get you one and send it to you, if you'd like..;)

    Anyway, for those who think it's worth paying that much US$28, then i guess it's fine. Those who think it's really not worth the price and would rather buy the same exact shirt but with a cheaper price, then that's fine also.:cool:

    Yep, the yellow/orange/black one is nice. It depends on the material too. If it is cheapy T-shirt material, no. If it is jersey-like nylon, yes. Hope to see some on sales at the Bay Badminton Championship this weekend. I might buy one since I am a TH fan. How about US$28 for a shirt, with TH autograph, plus a picture :)

    60 Euro for a tee...you got jib big time:D:pnow, I can see why US$28 with THL logo tee is cheap for you esp you are fan of TH, hey! all the power to you, you have the dough, you choose to spend anyway you want.:pYears ago, I discuss a similar topic with my friends on Air Jordon sneakers costing CAD$200 a pair compare to my CAD$99 Rockport. Take off AIr Jordan logo, that sneakers is worth a fraction of the price, it is all in the name of branding. Now, if TH, LD, PG and LCW sign a tee, that is a whole different discussion, I too would pay, even more than the US$28.
