This may have been asked before so forgive me if it has, does Naim sell T-shirts, hats, coffee mugs, etc.?
They did a trial at the Bristol show and sold some merchandise, all gone quite since, but we have had the Covid 19 pandemic to mess things up.
No idea if Lewis/Angela will keep this going!
It would be nice if this would continue after things get back to normal. I know it is a very very minor issue. With everything considered I think Naim is doing a good job all around during this virus.
I never really get the desire to wear items of clothes that are basically advertising for a company and that you paid for the privilege to be an advert. If they paid me enough to wear it I might, as this is unlikely I will remain unbranded.
Guess you are in a minority.
People tend to follow the romantic connection with brands they love.
And brands tend to squeeze the cow … for money.
Naim T shirt? Will it go with my Ferrari key ring, Porsche hat and Aston Martin luggage? Does it come in a Harrods bag?
He stands not alone!
I said minority, sir.
It is also not my preference to choose material with brands, but occasionally there is interesting material.
I find it aesthetically attractive an all black T-shirt with the Norton motorcycle logo. Or the sleeve design of unknown pleasures by division of joy.
I’ve got several T-Shirts which came with guitars and guitar amps. These include a Blackstar one with a picture of a chest x-ray of a pacemaker, and a PRS Mark Tremonti long-sleeved one. I wear them often, as well as my collection of AC/DC T-shirts (all gifts from my kids!).
SWMBO often makes me change out of one of them if I’m going to be accompanying her!
Like the people who wear other people’s work uniforms. AKA football shirts.
There are very few brands that I like to wear their logo on shirts or hats. But there are some. I started this to find out if I had that option with Naim. I for one, love the Naim products and would be happy to wear their apparel. If you disagree then that’s your right to not buy/wear it. I find it makes excellent gifts for kids to buy on Father’s Day, Birthdays, and Christmas that are personal and not cost a fortune.
Wouldn’t be my choice either.
Time was that dealers in the UK would give you a Naim mug for free.
It would be a nice touch to get a complimentary (or should that be ‘complementary’) branded mug each time you register a bit of kit (perhaps not the Mu-Sos). I would think this would be far more powerful & effective from a marketing message perspective than selling what are quite expensive T-shirts and alike on a limited basis at hi-fi shows.
It needs two knobs and would be a nice present to your wife / gf.
I would more like to buy a Naim poster, to put after under a glass on the wall. Don’t know if it’s possible to buy somewhere.
If you look carefully you’ll notice Mike is wearing something that can be bought online.
