My only suggestion, if not mentioned yet, is to have them made of microfiber.
Why not 100% cotton, microfiber stains, smells & pills.....

Yes, and that micro fiber must be in a multilayer, detachable front, to can wipe our lenses with it.

Well you did characterize the allusion to the Rainbow Flag as "unfortunate" which can be construed as disparaging. I don't know if that's what you intended or not, but "unfortunate" is not how I would characterize it. The color scheme was inspired by The Dark Side of the Moon EP, but I have absolutely no negative feelings toward the LBGT community or being associated with them in any case.
Perhaps so but I don't want to throw support that way either. Just like I don't want to support Nikon or anything else I'm not into supporting.

Didn't come as well as expected, but here's my first attempt, with a front and back combination

---------- Post added 02-27-15 at 02:50 AM ----------

And just one for the front.. Took the back one and put it on the front..
donpjt, i like the colourful first one for a front only
it is like the sunrise (asahi) birth of pentax to present day

Well, that's not necessarily a negative to all comers, even as such: maybe not so safe to wear down here, I suppose: a good question would be if there'd be much hassle about different colors of printing: if different colors are no big deal, monochrome versions might be in order just generally cause we can be a fussy bunch about these things.

I think the rainbow looks pretty sharp, actually, but I tend to shy away from bright colors, myself. (It doesn't take much to make me feel like a flashing billboard or something. )

Rainbow colors all together make me think of clowns, the circus, and tie dye. I admit I can't stand clowns, never enjoyed the circus... because there are clowns, country fairs if there are clowns and there always are clowns and mimes... ughhhh, the multi colors reminds me of multicolor clown wigs and I never ever wear bright tie dye of any sort. As a kid I hated Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls, and my aunts giant clown collection. LOl I know it's stupid but it's a real thing with me.

LOL, Make the whole shirt out of lens cleaning cloth material and you are good to go, just stay out of the sand.

I have to add a vote for 100% cotton; being in possession of mad curly hair means that wearing anything artificial makes my hair stick up as if I've just been electrocuted. Not very useful when trying to sneak up on subjects to photograph.

The first, in jest, in celebration of the millions of words written on this subject. How about going back to the future with a T-shirt of the classic K camera and zebra lens?

utak; I really like the second one (black) with the Pentax Forums logo. Most of the designs, while very good, seem to have the Pentax Forums as an afterthought, rather than being the subject.

My thoughts on going back to a "classic" image of a camera, is that most still think of Pentax as being in the past, rather than the future; so this would be feeding that image of Pentax.

In fact the previous design with Limited focus is excellent.
That design available at a faire price to Europe, I would have bought a couple.
