Argyle pattern made up of s'mores ingredients, perfect summer BBQ and campfire attire. Lightly distressed, on a brown shirt. Now I'm hungry after staring at chocolate and graham crackers for a couple hours...

Kinda a neat design, but I think the design should start a bit higher up on the shirt.

I agree. Really neat idea, but higher would be nice. Still GMV though.

I find this boring and lazy and it may be s'mores ingredients but it does NOT say BBQ to me at all.

But it may be my total dislike of argyle that drives my dislike of this design. But it still doesn't say BBQ, it is more like campfire.

This would be great if the color was lighter. It's the summer, I don't want to be wearing black or brown.

Maybe, but the theme description specifically states s'mores as being on-topic.

theme description wrote:...And by BBQ we mean all forms of recreational outdoor summertime cooking, including weenie roasts, shrimp on the barbie, S'mores, luaus, all of it.

I agree with this; BBQ needs meat. But yeah, smores are derby legal according to woot's theme description.

Heh, I hate the common argyle designs I see alot in derbies but this is def. a more original take then the others.

This might be simple and not-so-bbq-ish, but it's really making me want some S'mores! I can taste them when I look at this!

i can't vote for this as i really don't want it on a shirt. that being said, i actually do like it and think it's pretty imaginative. so, .. for what that's worth.

I'm always a fan of patterns more than words or silly cartoon punchlines. While argyle is out of style, s'mores never are. I would love to wear this to the beach this summer. Maybe in a lighter brown, though (hint hint).

I think you did a good job on this one. I like the feel of the pattern. I'm just wondering why you didn't continue it higher and lower on the shirt.
