#VMworld T-shirts Review 2016 – Part 1

I have to start by apologizing, that this review comes after VMworld, but I’ve actually had a really busy schedule at VMworld this year, and didn’t get much time to spend at the Solutions Exchange to find all the T-shirts or evenings free to actually write a few posts about the T-shirts. I do hope that most of the Vendors I list here will be represented at VMworld Europe in Barcelona, so people can still use this review for something useful 🙂

1. VMworld T-shirt - Front 1. VMworld T-shirt - Back

Name : Official VMworld T-Shirt
Model: C Port and Company 100% Cotton
Size: XXL
QualitySeems like VMware has degraded the quality of their T-shirt this year. Last years pre-shrunked cotton was really good after washes, this one seems a bit too stiff.  It however is still alot better than some of the else T-shirts I’ve collected the other years.
Print: A few variations of the be_TOMORROW message that was all over the conference. Not too excessive, but still a bit bigger than I would have liked it, if I should wear this shirt anywhere but at VMUG’s and the like.
Score: 7/10 
Conclusion: An ok Shirt that doesn’t feel all that soft, but still quite ok.

 

2. Veeam T-shirt - Front2. Veeam T-shirt - Back

Name : Veeam
Model: Gildan Softstyle – Ring Spun 100%  Cotton
Size:  XXL
Quality:  Feels really soft to the touch and hope that it feels this soft after a few washes. Not sure what the Ring Spun means but I hope that it’s somewhat like the Pre-shrunk thing that some of the other T-shirts have, that really keeps the shape of the T-shirt after you wash it a few times.
Print: As always Veeam has some big lettering on the front, which makes you notice this shirt when people walk around with it. Not sure I would wear this one anywhere at home though (or at a Veeam convention)
Score:  6/10
Conclusion:  Nice shirt, but the big print drags it down, to get a high score I want a shirt that I could actually wear in public too.

 

3. Docker - Front3. Docker - Back

Name : Docker
Model: Canvas – 100% Cotton
Size: XXL
Quality A nice soft and thin T-shirt that’s from a new T-shirt Vendor that I don’t think I’ve seen before. Hope this stays in shape after washes.
Print:  Just the well-known Docker logo on the front and a simple ” Build Ship and Run Any App Anywhere” message on the back. Not too brazen.
Score: 7/10
Conclusion:  A nice quality and not too big a logo, I think i could wear this one once in a while 🙂

 

4. Turbonomic - Front 4. Turbonomic - Sleeve

Name : Turbonomic (former VMturbo)
Model: Canvas – 100% Cotton
Size: XXL
QualityThe same company and same quality of T-shirt that Docker use.
Print: A big brain on the front where one half is the normal brain and the other half is a computer circuit version
Score:  7/10
Conclusion: Like Docker a very soft and nice T-shirt with an ok print, and not too brazen company logo. Actually surprised that the earlier VMturbo company has this understated company logo 🙂
