    Loved the packaging on the shirt, really good quality print and shirt itself! PS: My girlfriend (works in advertising) said the logo must be changed in at least 13 ways for it to infringe on copyright stuff. I think there was something about how much profit before the pursue things too. Anyways, pretty sure you'll never be on their radar :D

    awesome thanks for the feedback!

    the XL sizes seem to be going the quickest. with a bunch of requests for 2XL. so when i reprint the XLs i'll probably throw in a group of 2XLs as well. so if you requested some, just check back in.

    i'd also be interested in feedback of the actual tshirt brand i used (as it's the first time I've used this particular brand). being a tall thinnish fellow, i prefer a more fitted tee rather than one more "boxy." but i do understand not everyone feels the same. so if people aren't digging them, i can look into doing something more traditional.

    thanks again!

    The shirt fits me very well on the sleeves and chest. I'm 5'9'', 160lbs. It's funny you say you are a tall person, b/c I think this shirt was tailored for tall people, due to the length of the shirt tail. I find the shirt tail a little too long for my taste, but certainly not a deal breaker. I'd say it's about an inch to an inch and a half too long on the shirt tail. I'd offer up this option and a shorter shirt tail.

    I think you'll find younger guns like myself and my brother, blaine.hale like fitted tee's whereas older guys will prob like the boxier cuts. That's just an observation tho.

    The fabric itself is great. No complaints at all. Feels great on the skin. Packaging was killer as well. I'm glad you put it in that bag, so the shirt circuitry wouldn't get fried ;)

    Just got my shirts. They're awesome. Girlfriend approves, too, which is a plus.

    On sizing, I'm 5'9", 205lbs. with a 45" chest. The large size is nicely fitted (I tend to like my t-shirts a little bit tight).

    However, how's the shrinkage (heh, heh) on these things? If they shrink much, I'm screwed.

    Add me to the list, just got mine, really soft and design is great. The XL fits good actually, not really all that tight but the large would have been prob too tight in the arm pits especially if it shrinks, I'm a size 44/athletic cut in a jacket for reference, but as someone said its about 2in longer than most t-shirts. Thanks!

    cool, thanks guys. remember to wash it before wearing it out. the print will feel a little raised and chalky, once you wash it that all goes away and the print is just as soft as the shirt. there's nothing wrong with wearing it before washing, you just might find that the white discharge residue might rub off on things (won't affect the print at all or stain anything though).

    as for shrinkage, the shirts i kept and washed i didn't notice any crazy shrinking. nothing out of the ordinary anyway. so let me know what you guys find.

    thanks again! i got a few more orders i'm shipping out today!

    finally washed it and unlike george costanza...saw no shrinkage :lol3 If possible I suggest on future runs to find a shirt that is closer to normal length, otherwise great shirt!

    Free bump. I've been wearing my shirts all over. The girlfriend asked if they're the only shirts I'm going to wear from now on...
