Can someone help me/us

I agree an online store would probably make a lot of sales. They've heard this suggestion many times before, but so far, nothing... ?? I'll mention it to them again. You can too - just call sales and suggest it.

You can find them on Amazon, EBay, RedBubble or lil peep merch. But it depends on your country because due to COVID-19 the shipping around to different countries may not be possible. It may take extra charges and extra time because I also bought an online hellboy shirt design at lil peep shop and I have faced these issues.
I have some polo shirts that I think look great on me and I really like that. I've been trying to shop and buy more polos but they all look different, often in a bad way.
I'm trying to research polos and figure out what can be different about them and how this can affect the look. For example, sleeve length. Sleeve tightness. Slim fit versus regular. Collars can also have slight differences that totally change the look of shirts, but I'm not sure what is often changed about collars (length? pointiness?)

Indeed, an official MATLAB merchandise store will be a great hit...!!!

If you have a 3-D printer you can print your own logos.
We tried to print the MATLAB logo in 3-D in PLA plastic from Ned Gulley’s blog.
Ned's print didn't work because one corner part of the logo starts on a really small point and goes out (expands) from there and that just couldn't happen - the printer just put out a curly blob there. So we got a different MATLAB peaks logo print file off the internet that had a solid base and printed that. It came out perfect. Right now we just have turquoise and white filament but perhaps I’ll get some orange to make it look genuine. We can scale the size to whatever size we want. This one is 2 inches (50 mm) square.

That’s pretty cool! Was the dimensions fed in by a CAD or by MATLAB? If the latter it would be pretty dope.

Well actually my son did it. I used Ned's code to make an STL file but then it didn't work so well so we got a different STL file. If you want to alter the STL file, such as to change the size of the print, then you bring it into some kind of CAD/modeling program. We used https://www.tinkercad.com - a free online cad program.
Then you need to bring the STL file into a "slicer" program that looks at the STL file and figures out where it needs to insert supports, because you can't have something overhanging is there is nothing underneath it. So it may need to make some supports that you later cut away. For this one, it basically created some sort of triangular lattice inside to give it strength and structure I guess. You also tell the slicer program the material you're using, the bed temperature, and the nozzle temperature. Then you put the binary file the slicer program makes onto the computer box of the printer and tell it to print it. This one took about 3 hours to print.
