Official Sisters Merch

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

From a merch & manufacturing point of view, zip-up hoodies tend to be more expensive to make and print, which puts them an infavourable light when you see them in a web shop side by side with often cheaper non-zip up ones.

Also, they are harder to make with large prints on the front because there's a zip, and they're split into two halves! The two halves have to be lined up perfectly during printing - otherwise there's a mismatch in the final design - and that's really tricky to do with clothing because the material moves and is stretchy. Also the final design often looks a bit s**t when there's a zip running up the middle of it.

That's why most merch has a single, smaller design - usually on the left breast - on zip up hoodies.
Be that as it may, the Sisters are the only band that I've seen in the last twenty years that haven't had a zip hoodie. Is Von just being churlish on purpose..

.. ah.

I still think a Sissies zip with just head and star, no writing, or new very plain head and half a star no cogs 2020 tour style on breast pocket would work, due to plain classic designs.

Let's deal with HL first.

2020 - Leeds & Nottingham, so far anyway. And Frankfurt. And Manchester with huge thanks to Gothicbiff

Not Frankfurt

I'd love an official Sisters zip up.
