Don't want to be hatin', but I don't really like this shirt... and I was wondering if I was alone, and it seems so. Everyone else likes it.

So I'll just go I'M BEING ATTACKED BY RABID WEASELS! now ._.

I ordered this shirt as a Christmas gift on 12/10/08 and got my confirmation email and all looked normal. Even my card was charged for it two days later. But the shirt still hasn't come. When I look at my account history, sometimes it shows the order and sometimes it does not. Anyone else had this problem? I love Woot and no one I know has ever had this problem. No reply so far from my service request except the auto reply (I know they are busy, but still...) Help!

i bought several shirts at the same time last week, this being one of them. all of those shirts (including one i bought YESTERDAY) have been shipped out according to the smart post thing, but this one still says that the notification has just been sent out. i've already been charged for the shirt so i'm confused as to what's happening

Same here. Another shirt I ordered on the same day arrived today. This one still says carrier notification, but only if I track it through my account at woot. If I use the tracking email I received, it doesn't recognize the same number.

I seem to be having the same problem.
Did you ever receive your Nevermore shirts, and if so, how 'late' was it?

Assuming a payout of $2 per shirt after the initial offering of 2000, Haxrox appears to have made $19K on this design (it's sold 11,000+ as of 5/4/09). WOW!!!

That's amazing! Great work!

I haven't seen it, but one of my buddies saw a wearer in a nearby mall. I've had a couple awkward experiences trying to strike up conversation with woot-shirt wearers; I guess a lot of people get them as gifts and aren't really familiar with the site. Now I just do one of those cough/mutters and say "woot" just clearly enough to be discerned. If they look around excitedly and pull out a leak frog, I know it's safe to converse.

Just received my shirt in the mail. Undoubtedly a stylish design, but new buyers beware: the black lettering is quite difficult to make out on a gray background. It would be nice to see re-issues of this shirt with a lighter background that would give the raven outline the impact it deserves.

Been two weeks since I ordered, still no tracking number.

What's the hold up?

My tracking number still isn't showing up on Fed Ex, and it's been close to two weeks since I ordered. Is this Fed Ex's fault, or has it not been shipped yet?

Mask of the red death was far more close to home for him than anything else, considering everything he ever loved died from TB. Would have been nice to see that one...but it's not as well known as his iconic raven, but it would have yielded you a red shirt =P



It'd also be harder to abridge a short story than a poem. My favorite work of his remains the tell-tale heart. Probably because it was the first one I read. However, the Masque of Red Death was the first one I had to analyze in class. Great Story, I would've loved that too.

Hell, the theme should be the works of Edgar Allen Poe one time.

Okay seriously...

This shirt is all right. But better shirts have come and gone. It's been up here forever. Why do people keep buying it? It didn't even win the derby... the winner was about 9 times better.

But I respect the design. It's cool.

But I still think that it should be off the reckoning.

We have been behind in printing and shipping this shirt out, you should have already gotten a tracking number- it'll be valid for when we're able to get this out. Please contact us if you have any other questions! service@woot.com

Just picked one up for my daughter for a random "great job" gift. She loves to write, and did a report on Poe last year in 5th grade. I think she'll enjoy it, as long as I got the right size. I'm the dad, I don't know sizes! :-)

Let me say first that I bought one T-shirt of this design because I love Poe's poem. However, I don't understand how this design seems to be locked in sale positions 5-7 week after week. Is there a chart that shows how many of this shirt is being sold weekly?

Just got mine, and the shirt is so dark that you really can't see the black writing from more than a foot or so away. Did they get the wrong shade of grey in the re-issues?

Ordered my shirt on 10/27 and paid for overnight shipping. You site said I'd receive by 10/29 (today) which is perfect, since I ordered it to wear to school on Friday 10/30 (I'm an English teacher). It is not here yet and FedEx says it won't be here until at least tomorrow. I can't believe I paid for overnight shipping...

what would make this shirt even better is if it were black on black. then i WOULDN'T be able to read it at all. you guys skimping on the light colored shirts? light colored ink to costly? got a great deal on "asphalt" tees on ebay??? cheese-wiz...
liked the idea of this shirt, but the implementation is poor.

I agree with the others, this shirt isn't that great. You can't make out the wording at all on the grey background. I don't recommend buying.

This was my first woot a few months ago which really started me on the habit of checking the site every day to rotate out my t-shirts.

However, compared to other woot shirts I've received, this one just disappoints me. It arrived 2-3 weeks after purchase which is typical for my woot purchases (although a bit long by normal standards; I typically just order things on woot knowing it'll take awhile), so all was good there.

I don't know if it was the batch my shirt was made in or what, but first the shoulder-stitching was already coming loose right out of the bag, so I had to manually sew that to prevent one of the sleeves from getting looser and having the potential to fall off. Next, the shirt itself seemed to be of a thinner fabric than all of my other woot shirts, less comfortable (which is baffling because the tags are the same company and everything), and it favored a extra close-fitting, tighter-collared style than my other woots. I can wear an XL woot quite comfortably but Nevermore came quite tight.

Shirt dimensions and such aside, the black and gray do not complement each other at all. Online they appear to jive real well, but in practice the design is hardly discernable to passerbys unless they look closely. I was really disappointed in the delivery of what looked like a great design.

We should start taking bets on how long this shirt will last in the reckoning. My guess? 174. It's been hovering around 7th place for the past 30-40 weeks it seems...
