Default Letter jacket rant

So my son who is on his high school shooting team is going to letter this year and is in the process of ordering a letter jacket. He and some buddies have a saying 'bang bang, skeet skeet' when they do well. They have wanted that on their jackets since the order started. Its kinda corny but oh well, theyre good kids and 16

The company who makes the jackets has refused to embroider it. So they elected to have 2A or II A for second amendment.

You guessed it, they wont do that either and claimed its "vulgar" and against corporate policy. I plan on contacting corporate in attempt to get a better answer.

Any witty words of encouragement from the green screen I can pass along?

and anyone have an embroidery business. Ill pay outside the company

2A doesn't seem like a big deal but "bang bang, skeet skeet" does have an alternate meaning

I would go with outside company. Lots of embroidery places. It ain't rocket science. If they don't want your business, someone else will. Good luck

Just order it and have someone else do the embroidery. I would also look to see if I could order the jacket through someone else as well.

There is a place over in your neck of the woods off of Hardin Store Rd, that should be able to do it for you. I think the company name is DBS Marketing or DBS Promotions

Apologies...it's off of Nichols Sawmill, not Hardin Store

Tell him no on that saying

Getting 2A, or A2 shouldn't be an issue. If it is get it done somewhere else. Like others said, lots of places do it

My parents ordered all of my patches, letters, inscriptions, last name, and anything else that went on my jacket after I already had my jacket. Plus, it was cheaper that way anyway. Dont worry about the school or letter jacket company that refuses to do it. There is someone out there that will do it. Now, it may not pass your school's dress code, but someone will print it.

Not sure what school your son goes to and how "politically correct" they are, but you may want to double check with his principal to ensure he will be able to wear the jacket at school with that on it. If the principal gives the green light, take to any embroidery shop and get it done.

Lol there’s a reason they chose that specific phrase. They could get away with it under the guise of a shooting sports phrase, but make no mistake about it they chose it for the UD meaning.

We did this with both of our 2 older kids. Way cheaper doing it this way.

No matter how adult your relationship is with your kid, he is still 16. If you want to get that put on your sons jacket then be prepared for a lot of stares and laughs in public.

I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed a thread as much as this one.

It will be perceived by the overwhelming majority of people who see that phrase to be the Urban Dictionary version. This was popularized by the Lil Jon in the song Get Low. It is a pop culture reference that almost everyone 40 and under would perceive as being vulgar. This is something I would not ever let my kid have on a letter jacket. I work with teenagers both in church, at work, and in my family. Even the best kids in each of these three entities know exactly what that means. It may be innocent in his case, but it will be perceived as the vulgar meaning, not something I would want my teenager wearing around. Just my opinion.

nope, those boys know exactly what it means and thats why they think its funny

like others said go to someone local and get it done but don't be surprised when he gets sent home since the school already said no to it

That sucks this is even a topic of discussion, I would get the jacket and take it somewhere else. I just looked on google and found some nice skeet / trap shooter patches for high schools. You can find them all over the US. Wish they had shooting in my school as a teen , I would have loved it and probably did better in school .

If you as a parent think it’s fine to put bang bang skeet skeet then go get it done. But don’t be foolish and think those boys don’t know exactly what it is. I just asked my 17 year old and his girlfriend and they both knew.
