thanks for all the input y'all. (keep it coming).
the reasons for using OG cotton are many, but not as immediately sellable as the reasons you are so easily sold on OG foods -- you're not putting it in that hole in yr face. But consider that a HUGE part of OG agriculture in general, cotton and food production included, is it's lessened impacts on environment & labor resources -- in short, pesticides -- not just personal benefits. y'all might've heard of a little critter called a boll weevil (cool name). Personal health benefits is just a much easier sell to people who are unwilling to do the research. anyway .. to supply today's enormous demand for CHEAP cotton garments, conventional cotton production happens in underdeveloped nations (& US counties) where the undereducated populations are ignorant of the impacts of dousing food & water supplies with tons of toxic chemicals.
lots more to it than that of course, such as (another) opportunity to reinvigorate American agriculture, for one, but the info is out there if you take some time to figger it out. patagonia opened up the market, Nike legitimized it, & now it's happening for real with or without the haters .. but it costs on avg a little less than twice as much.
BSOE .. i doubt these suckas got yr point .. but i did, natch.
Nick .. i got you down for a half dozen, right? Right??
Progers .. i don't have enuff confidence in my designs to justify asking a lot for these. That's kind of at the heart of the original question. That & the fact that it's wise to take pricing cues from around "the industry", which I've done .. but we seem to have a bit of disagreement amongst the partners. I'm all for keeping cost down to at least parity with other similar products, lest we get stuck with a bunch of product in the basement.
