I know it’s not the most important thing for the Huel team to work on right now, but for some reason I can’t stop thinking about Huel merch. The reason being, because I love the bog standard top you get with your first order, it’s comfortable, it’s stretchy and perfect for the gym. However, I am fully conscious I am wearing an advertisement. I love Huel and have told everyone I know about it, I want people I don’t know to see me wearing merch and become interested too. That’s unlikely to happen with the current merch. Wearing any other brand, Nike, Prada, Crocs, your technically still advertising for them but it’s a bit more subtle how they do it.
I have talked to @TimOfficialHuel about this (the one who made the T-shirts his project) and he is interested in feedback. I said that I’d love a T-shirt saying ‘Hueligan’ in a cool design and then have the Huel logo, less obvious but still there in the lower corner of the T or bigger on the back. IMO the material of the shirt is great but if the design was better (i.e more colourful, funny, thoughtful, inspiring) I think a lot more people would be happy to show off their Huel T’s/hoodies etc.
Of course getting this stuff produced costs money, but I think as most people who are doing Huel are also into fitness, that they could start by creating some gym type merch such as shorts, gym towels, vests and the T shirts they’ve already established. I feel like if the merch had a cool design/quote or Hueligan on it, instead of a glaringly obvious advertisement then people would purchase them. Another couple of quotes I’d like to see on a T are: “Huel, gym, sleep, repeat” then below “Eat complete” and “Do you even Huel bro?”
Just ideas I’m throwing out into the wind. Have you guys got any opinions/ideas/feedback on the matter of merch? I don’t feel like it get’s talked about enough.
