Whether you are looking for the perfect shirt to wear to collect data in the field or to present that data at a professional meeting, WVAPSS has you covered. Any fashion-forward soil scientist--as well as the majority of WVAPSS members--can now wear their pride in being a professional soil scientist in WV with a t-shirt, polo shirt, oxford dress shirt, or even a cap, all of which are branded with the WVAPSS logo.


After many years of faithful service, the old WVAPSS t-shirts have been updated. In fact, two designs were created and are now available for order. Both shirts are 100% cotton, and can be purchased in both short-sleeve and long-sleeves styles. One design features a yellowish red (5YR 5/8) shirt with the WVAPSS logo in black over the left chest on the front and a textural triangle, also in black, on the back. The other design features an off-white shirt, which is 100% organic cotton for the eco minded member. The front of the shirt features the WVAPSS logo over the left chest in green, and brown hand prints below. The back of the shirt includes a quote from Thomas Jefferson ("...civilization itself rests upon the soil.") in green. Click on either design above for a preview of the shirt (both front and back).

An order form for the t-shirts is available here.

Embroidered Shirts and Hats

Also available for order are selected embroidered items, including polo shirts, oxford dress shirts, and hats. The polo shirts are dark green and short-sleeved, with the WVAPSS logo embroidered over the left chest. The oxford dress shirts are classic light blue with button-down collar and a left check pocket. Again, the WVAPSS logo is embroidered above the left chest. The hat is a Flexfit cap made with 100% organic cotton. The loden green cap also features an embroidered WVAPSS logo on the front and comes in two sizes (S/M and M/L) to fit most head sizes. For all embroidered items, the embroidery features four-color stitching, with the outline of the state of West Virginia and "WVAPSS" in two shades of gold, and the auger in two shades of silver. Click on either design above for a preview of the shirts or hat.
