Fedora merchandise ideas

As an avid Fedora user and participant(artwork and website lists), I think
Fedora could benefit from a bigger list of merchandise, and some more
emphasis on its availability. That said, I browsed the redhat
brandfuelstores website and came up with a small list of items that I would
like to see Fedora's brand on, and would certainly consider purchasing the
items with available funding. I feel that getting some merchandise out there
would be a good subtle way to advertise the OS and hopefully get people

Truth Happens teeshirt -
    Could be redesigned a little bit to include some quote or promo line
relating to Fedora. I know there are some available
Ergo Mug - http://redhat.brandfuelstores.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=3&products_id=116

    I don't know about you, but this would quickly replace my current travel
mug, and I am an avid coffee drinker.
Fleece Pullover -
    People tend to get cold. Perfect for fall/spring
Ringer teeshirt -
    See "Truth Happens" description
Redhat Fedora -
    Technically I already have a navy blue fedora hat that I got from
amazon, but if we could get one with an official Fedora
    blue color, I think people would really consider it. However, this idea
has me questioning exactly how much crossover to
    Redhat it would create.
Beanie hat -
    A hip style among todays youth and future Linux users.
Shadowman mug -

    See "Ergo Mug" description, except for when sitting at home.

Now, I'm not saying that merchandise should come to the forefront of
priority or anything, but could be a good side project to work on when
things slow down. Plus I feel it would be a smart move with all of the press
that Linux has been garnering lately and how it's moving up in the OS world.

Any thoughts and ideas are welcome.
