Font help!

Can anyone help me identify the font from this T-shirt?

We're trying to design some T-shirts for a community organization and like the look of this font. Any thoughts on what it might be? Or how to replicate it?

Thanks!

Ha! I knew I'd know this one before even opening the post...
Cheri Liney
(I had to use it once for a job and it took ages to find...)

Double Ha! I'm wrong.

I think it's Helvetica or Helvetica Bold with a heavy stroke and a fill set to 0% opacity. Do you have photoshop? It can be replicated easily if so.

TBoaF, the 't's are not Helvetica. They are 't's like Cheri Liney but the font is straighter in the OPs image and doesn't have hearts dotting the 'i's

It's similar to the Eurostile family, but the lowercase 't' doesn't cross all the way on the left.

If you can take a more even picture of the sample, you can upload it to WhattheFont and perhaps find it there.

Coolvetica. You'll need to outline it yourself, though.

Seconding Coolvetica. (Full disclosure: I strongly dislike Coolvetica. But I am probably not your potential customer.)

"Helvariations". What an awesome term!

Also looks like Chalet from House Industries, if'n you feel like dropping a bundle of $$.
