: People have inquired about this from time to time. It's not a pleasant tale to tell. Dometakis did take a few orders a while back but his turnaround time was not weeks but months for the custom-made shirts. Finally, a few people got fed up and canceled their orders. I don't think he really wants to get involved with the "I'll make Indy props" crowd. Definitely not as fan-friendly as Wested Leather Company. -MP
I'd advise you to give up on Dometakis and get a shirt made by a local tailor or seamstress. The news about Dometakis is disappointing, but not very surprising. After all he works for the entertainment industry and they pay a hell of a lot better than a few dozen Indy fans. Plus he works alone so he's hardly equiped to handle so many outside orders. Greg seems to have had good luck with his new shirt, maybe you should e-mail him for details on materials, costs, design, etc.
Hope this helps.
