I meant:

- €10 gets you a black t-shirt. (XSF gets ~€6.50)
- €15 gets you a dark-grey hooded T. (XSF gets ~€2.50)
- €20 gets you both. (XSF gets ~€4.00)

I know we normally say things like "€10 each, or €20 for two as a  
special offer", but this is a genuine combo deal I'm suggesting.

As a side note, we need to figure out numbers.

With the black ones, we ordered 110. The grey ones we ordered - Will  
thinks - 200, and sold only 50.

And when I say sell, I really mean gave away.

I think, given how well the black ones sold originally, we could risk  
200 of those. I suspect, also, that the hooded T should be a success,  
but they're significantly more expensive (and therefore a higher  
cost). So maybe only 100 of those?

(That is, roughly, an outlay of €730 for t-shirts, and €1300 for  
hooded T's, for €2030 total, or if you prefer $2578, or £1690,  
before shipping).
