    Honestly, I would never wear anything proclaiming myself a public hero.
    Crazy, but that's how it goes
    Millions of people living as foes
    Maybe it's not too late
    To learn how to love, and forget how to hate

      Thank you for your feedback. Public Hero is more of just the brand name but I can see where you're coming from. I appreciate you checking out!

        Can I be brutally honest? They look like shirts and slogans a wacker would buy. Hey look at me I'm a hero!

        Sorry, I just don't buy this kind of stuff, or the I fight what you fear, or I walk where the devil dances, or coed naked, or anything with skulls on it. My t-shirts are department issue, fill the boot, FD celebration, Breast Cancer shirts, mostly stuff like that.

          Thank you for your input. I respect that fully, I'm just trying to support our military, firefighters, and police officers. Never meant to come off as saying they're better or more heroic then the rest of the public. I plan to branch off to make shirts for cancer awareness, mothers&fathers and so on. I just have to start small then expand.

            And I don't mean to kick you in the crotch, I am just being as honest with you as I can be.

            Good luck.

              1. I see this "request for opinions" as a pathetic and cheap advertising attempt, which by the way I am sure you are aware is a violation of firehouse.com's terms of service, but you knew that, so of course this isn't a pathetic and cheap advertising attempt.

              2. I agree with the others.

                I'm with you.

                I'm pretty sure the only FD related t-shirt I've ever worn has been a memorial to LODD. They're sold as fund raisers for the family. And there have been way too many.

                  I've seen FDs do shirts for specific events - "Chicken Roast 2015, Podunk FD." Oftimes they are worn by all the members, and even sold as souveniers. I have several.
                  Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

                  Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

                    Didn't mean it to knock any other t-shirts. Just unfortunately seem to always have a drawer full of the others.

                      Looks like he took down the link before I could see.

                      Oh well.

                        For me personally, its all sorta not my taste. Nothing real cringe worthy, except for the hero name.

                        I dont have a problem with it.

                        Still a little unsure about the "whacker" definition. I know guys who have the lights and t shirts, that some would call whackers. But some of these guys make the most runs and get the most training hours. You just can never say.
                        The fire service is about service to our fellow man.
                        There is a trust that must not be broken and we are the keepers of that trust.

                          There are the ultra-crazy wackers that are in it for the shirts and lights, and the dedicated firefighters that are wackerish and still want the coolest t-shirts, tattoos, most lit up POV possible, and without even knowing why...the big mustache.

                            I should mention that to him. A gonzo esque mustache would be a nice touch.

                              I guess I'm going to disagree ..... Just a little bit ... with the crowd.

                              Would it be gaudy and "look at me"ish for a firefighter, cop or EMS worker to wear one? Probably. Would I likely wear one? Na. I'm not a "Fight What You fear" kind of guy.

                              But I could see this as a market within the general public for those that may want to buy and wear one as way to honor cops, firefighter and Band-Aid bunnies in their community.

                              And yes ..... I do like the Twin Tower shirt.
