Hi,
does anyone know anywhere that you can buy international archery shirts eg Korea, Mexico, etc?
Thanks,
Patrick

Well, advertised here... possibly foreign archery associations might sell copies of their own... but they might decide that only those who've earned the shirt can acquire one.

What a terrifying concept that is, that you should have to earn something! Surely it would be better for the sport to be able to buy them like Man Utd shirts in Sports Direct; what do you mean "devaluing"? ;)

I heard something similar in NZ. Apparently there is a very strong feeling that you should earn the right to wear an All Black shirt however commercial opportunities have resulted in a devaluation of the shirts cache.

I'm not entirely sure that they should be. It's not the same as wearing a Wales rugby shirt to a match, is it? Being awarded an international archery shirt is a big deal, like being awarded a medal.

Or earning a Welsh cap for rugby.
Now that IS a big deal.

FITA as it was then released a 1400 shirt a few years ago split into 4 national colours (2 front 2 back) of the first 4 compound archers to shoot 1400 plus FITA round (ws1440).

This looked rather good wish I had bought one now.

The GB strip is so awful I can't imagine anyone wanting to buy one. Camouflage shirt for use in an abattoir maybe.

I think it's different when you wear football shirt as spectator to wear national shirt as competitor - in this case I think one should earn it.
