Got mine today as well. And as you say makes a good bit of additional packing around the Pi given how thin the bubble mailer was.

Mine was 1215 with the CE as a sticker on the back and not on the front.

Not sure I'll ever wear my Pi shirt as the OCD collector in me thinks it'll be something worth keeping mint. Sad I know ;)

You had to quote a code in the delivery instructions. Plus I think it was limited to the first so many orders.

If you look online at your order the size you requested come under delivery instructions.

IIRC you had to respond to a specific email from Farnell inviting you to order and get a free t-shirt - haven't got details to hand (as now working on Pi and haven't migrated my old emails yet) but suspect they only announced the deal on 3 March.

Ordered mine 3 March, delivered yesterday fine with additional t-shirt packaging.

Yes. there was a specific email from Farnell on 3rd March. I responded to it within the hour, indicating the size I required. The email specifically mentioned that stocks were limited. Mine arrived Friday and I wore it at the weekend.

Did yours arrive with your Pi, or separately, as I seem to recall that you have had one (a Pi) for some time now?

I didn't get the option to order a T-shirt either, I got my order in at 0814hrs... I think the offer was only made to a short duration of later orders as an 'apology' for not having a website capable of taking the volume of interest... (my Farnell one is a 1212 mfg date).

Despite ordering the t shirt it did not come with my Pi. Does it come separately or with the Pi?
Not at all disappointed but I feel if I went through the process of giving them shirt sizes and ordering I should at least be given the product :cry:

Can we safely assume that if a size is quoted in the delivery instructions 'box' that you will definitely receive one then, I wonder?

No. The original email offering the T-shirts stated that it was while stocks lasted. So even if you put in a request for one there was no guarantee that you'd receive one.

It was a great bit of free advertising for the companies, considering that their logo was larger than that of the Raspberry Pi! By the way, it appears that people still like them and one just went for over £25 on ebay! Might be keeping mine for a few years.

Bugger! I could have financed my Pi. I've been wearing mine. Does the value increase with age?

Nice one Montala. I had a confirmed despatch date of 26th June so I'm hoping they might have one left for me by then. :D

Perhaps! As time goes on more people will lose theirs and the original shirts will become more rare. :)
