    Have any of you recently tried to purchase any Ferrari shirts? EVERYONE seems to be out of just about everything, unless you need a 6XL. No "regular" sizes are in stock, if anything at all is available.
    WTF?
    Is this that vast right wing conspiracy again???

    the license is moving from fila to puma.

    most licensing deals have rights that permit the manufacturer some time period to sell out the stock they have on hand when the license expires. it's possible that the deal with fila does not have that - so they're going to be extremely careful about managing inventory - and depending upon the margins they run at, running their inventory way low might be more prudent than running it JIT or the like.

    that's my guess, fwiw. i obviously do not know what the story is.

    i bought some fila ferrari tees about a month ago - no problemo finding them (XL).

    Doody -
    does Fila produce your standard short sleeve, collared polo-type Ferrari shirt (or used to)? Seems Ferrari could get anyone to do it.
    Alls I want is a black, short sleeve polo-style shirt with the SF shield on front, stealth Ferrari lettering on the back...
    You think SOMEONE would want to sell me one!

    Maybe John Kerry could blame Bush for this too!
    "... and all those Ferrari nuts out there, this administrations failure to ensure a steady supply of Ferrari related apparrel.... its just a huge problem thats not being addressed!"

    Doody'd right. Puma will be the official licensee of Ferrari merchandise starting in 2005. There is a whole new line of shoes, apparel and accessories being designed right now. We (Puma North America) are meeting to finalize when and where it will be sold. I will post some pics (design illustrations not real pics) real soon.

    Thanks,

    Theo
