I don't order jack unless its from Jim, Midwest, or Skidim. Sadly every MC dealer has pretty much let me down on merchandise. Sad how you can order a hat or visor and it takes 2 months to get to your door. Jim airbombed me a rare starter in 2 days from florida that was never put in an MC and midwest sent me a huge shipment of crap i couldn't find anywhere else in the same. I ordered an in stock item from charlotte mc and it took over a month to get 2 hours down the road.

BD won't get my business just b/c their prices are outrageous!

Same. My brother got me an xl sweat shirt, which my 130# wife now gets to wear.

On a side note, my wife works in marketing / purchasing and does a lot of branded products, including sweatshirts. She counted that the mc ss was crap, and and problems cost 4-5$

The end of that seemed a bit off. Also, look closely and you'll see that your wife now wars an XXL. Might want to put her scrawny behind on a diet.

Their stuff is crap. Low quality. And I think that they were an example of the economy's downfall. Good thing is Gordys in Fontana Wisconsin is now a Mastercraft Dealer.

I was at my dealer the other day looking at their MC shirts they had in stock and have to say the versions they had were not something that I really would wear. Is it me or have the shirts really gone down in quality? They seem really thin and made of some kind of high poly blend. They did also mention that they had other more classic styles in stock but those went quickly. Go figure. At least they stock a good assortment of classic hats. Looks like I'll be wearing the 4 and 5 year old shirts I have for another season once again this year however the selection is getting thinner as the wife tosses the ones she feels are no longer in shape to be worn.

Vendors have moved to the poly shirts because of the digital process of producing t-shirts. Silk screening allows a nice cotton shirt where dye sublimation requires a poly shirt. Unfortunately, base stock t-shirts are getting pretty cheap... for the new process
