      Would anyone object to me wearing one on Exam day? 😀

      LOLOLOL not at all! How would a design look like though?

      I like it. The idea of a bunch of candidates swarming the exams in the same outfit is really funny. Kinda like in The Matrix with their sun glasses.

      Ha! I was thinking just the logo at the top of the forum, but yours is better!

      I was gonna get some pics of me at the venue that you might be able to use, I think it will take my mind of things on exam day!

      You should have the picture of a badge hunter one you posted some time ago. That was hillarious.

      @MattJuniper how would it work logistically though? Do you have a method to get these tshirts easily?

      @christine I had a look a few days ago and you can design custom t-shirts on-line and have them printed and sent for around £15. Seems pretty easy really. 😀

      Right, here is my first attempt. What do people think?!?

      The site I used for this came out quite expensive, so I’ll do some searching as I know it can be done quite cheaply!

      How expensive is expensive? And I have to factor in shipping….

      @diya

      T-shirt is coming out at £27.99 (ZAR 385)

      UK shipping is free, but international shipping is £5.95 (ZAR 82)

      @MattJuniper that is EXPENSIVE. In Canadian dollars that is $53.

      Thanks for the credit. In tiny font my signature should appear. :))

      I think VistaPrint does it for much cheaper. I’m not sure about the quality though.

      Why do I get the feeling that some proctor somewhere is going to consider this to be a violation of Standard 7A?

      Awesome design @mattjuniper!

      Did a quick check on vistaprint. It’s about £13-£17 delivered to various countries:
      UK: £14
      US: £13
      CA: £15
      ZA: £17

      Will continue to search, then we’ll have a t-shirt design comparison!

      Why do I get the feeling that some proctor somewhere is going to consider this to be a violation of Standard 7A?

      This did actually cross my mind, however having thought about it I don’t think it’s a problem. The design doesn’t make any reference to ‘CFA’ or ‘CFAI’, and there is no dress code for the exam (as far as I am aware). As Schweser states, 7A is not designed to prevent anyone expressing “an opinion or belief concerning the CFAI or CFA Program”, and really all this is stating is that I’m a member of a study programme/community.

      On the flip side you could argue why risk it? Maybe I’ll just wear a jumper in the actual exam part 😀

      I wasn’t aware of any dress code per se! That’s a little overregulated …

      Wow, that’s really expensive. With shipping, it would come to almost 2900 Indian Rupees 😐

      I had a quick search today. Best I could find (within reasonable quality and delivering to everyone’s locations) was about USD30, including delivery. Thoughts?

      30 usd is definitely better. Comes to half of what I said initially.

      I’ll have a play around t-shirt designing this week. Feel free to suggest designs, and I’ll probably put a poll up later 🙂

      Hey @Zee. Love the layout. Would it be costlier to print these on collared polo type of t-shirts?

      @Sophie only problem with in being on the back is that during the summer the buildings crank up their AC to “freezer level” and living in Canada I wouldn’t be surprised if I’m wearing a sweater and still feeling chilly…

      And I dunno but my body temperature drops when I concentrate, is that normal? I tried googling it but didn’t find anything interesting.

      Check out some of the stuff I’ve been experimenting on here: http://www.printfection.com/300hourscommunity. You can order any item directly from them, and the prices are the lowest I’ve been able to find that delivers to most countries we’re interested in.

      @mattJuniper you are definitely onto something! The draft looks great. Regardless of whether or not I would wear to exam day, I would sport that shirt in my studies and elsewhere.

      @Dr_Pain28 the current designs (which I’d like to improve on!) can be found here: http://www.printfection.com/300hourscommunity. You can already purchase them, and I’d love to hear your shirt design suggestions! 🙂
