I have seen less similar shirts rejected for being similar, so I think it's odd Woot would choose to print this one.

Also, I love Hunger Games, but this is just too... goofy. And I don't particularly want to walk around with a hippo on my shirt.



Hey well Hunger Games is a rip off of Battle Royale, and no one seems to even take notice of that...

woot changed my signature...apparently linking my old blog was "advertising"...never thought I'd see anyone give Obama a run for his money on being the nanny state...

No well, I know that it's basically a rip off of Battle Royale, but doesn't mean it isn't enjoyable. They're playing Battle Royale at one of the local theaters this weekend, so I might go see it as well for fun and to compare.

I'm just hanging out, really.

Actually, they print on Anvil now, and while I've yet to buy one with an Anvil blank, they look to be considerably longer than the American Apparel ones. So you might want to give it another shot.

I just measured my AA WM to try to match it up to an appropriate Anvil size. Now, it's been washed, but it's 16" wide and 23.5" long -- meaning a WS is now both wider and longer than the WM used to be.

I'm giving it a go because I like this shirt so much (and I'm originally from Rochester, so Western NY love), but I'm already not thrilled about the double-whammy of higher price + cheaper-quality shirt, and if this doesn't fit right, I'll be extra-super-sad. And probably never buy another shirt from here again. Booo.

So I ordered this before noon Central Time, overnight shipping (received confirmation 11:37 EST). No shipping info yet. When is standard to receive shipping info on overnight orders?

Expecting it to arrive Friday! I'll be a sad Wooter otherwise...

All those complaining about "fitted" tees - I'm going to let you in on a VERY carefully-guarded secret...

Someone invented two MIRACULOUS items - called "Needle" and "Thread"!!

Even better, someone figured out how to combine the two with some voodoo-machinery, and made something called a "sewing machine"!!

/snark...

Jokes aside, a PERFECTLY servicable sewing machine can be had for under $80 at any "big-box" store.

I've always had trouble buying shirts that fit - if they fit my chest and shoulders they're a mile too big in the waist, and pants are *ALWAYS* too long!

I used to spend almost as much getting a dress-shirt altered to fit me as I did buying them!

Then I wised up, and thought "if SHE can do it, *I* can figure it out!!

I also applied a bit of "man-genuity" to the whole thing, and came up with a pretty simple way of getting it done!

Needs:
- Cardboard as big as your torso
- "dressmaker's chalk" (or a pencil, or if you're brave a fine-point sharpie)
- scissors or razor-knife
- stapler
- sewing stuff...

Start with the best-fitting shirt you have.
You *MIGHT* want to consider paying to get ONE shirt tailored - then you can use it as a template to do the rest yourself~!

Lay it flat on the cardboard and "trace" the torso profile. don't be afraid to "tweak" it a little to correct any spots that still don't fit you perfectly!

Cut out the cardboard "torso" - this is going to be your outline/template for fixing all the others! I included "arms" on mine to help with positioning the template on the ones I alter...

Now turn your "target" shirt inside-out and lay it out flat. Position your template on it and trace the lines -- this is where you're going to sew...

I found it best to use the stapler to staple the "excess" to keep the shirt-layers lined up properly...

Once you've got your side-lines traced, staple down the OUTSIDE of the line - this will keep it straight while you sew...

Then just sew down the line you drew, and ....

Viola!

A PERFECTLY form-fitted shirt, made just for you!

Put it on, inside-out, to test the fit -- if it's not perfect, just (CAREFULLY!) cut out the stitches and try again!

Pro-tips...

Most machines will do a stitch that looks a lot like the "binding" on the original shirt-seam. It's not really intended for that, but it WILL work! All you need to do is use a VERY sharp pair of scissors, and **VERY** CAREFULLY (!!) cut down the outside edge of the "seam" when you're ready to cut off the excess... You want to remove ALL the cloth, but be SUPER careful not to cut the thread or the whole thing will be ruined!

I might just make a YT video about this - it would be my first, but I think it would be a good one!

Don't be intimidated - this really isn't all that hard!

Buy the machine at wally-world, try it out on an old junk shirt, and if you can't make it work then just take the machine back!

The reality is that once you've fixed and worn one or two, you'll want to do them all!

Wearing custom-tailored clothes makes you look AND FEEL like a million bucks - and knowing you did it YOURSELF makes it even better!!

FYI: A shirt hits the reckoning IMMEDIATELY after its first day of sale is over. At 11.59pm it's still $12... and then as soon as 12.00am hits, it's available on the reckoning. Just BAM! switched over like that. Not a moment of selling interrupted--unless the servers hiccup.

Hello. It depends on when you purchased the shirt. If you missed it further up the thread, staff Inkycatz clarified the overnight shipping schedule:

inkycatz wrote:The word on overnight shipping:
"They have until Noon CST Thursday (Today) to order Overnight and receive it tomorrow. Otherwise it won't get shipped out until tomorrow and they'll get their overnight order Monday."

Considering it's already noon Pacific time... yeah. So you morning overnighters are good for the weekend, it looks like.

This is also handy info to know for Thursday shirts.

edit: totally beaten to the punch with the FAQ, no less ;) BUT we should probably add the CST part to the FAQ, so there is that.



Also, even if it is scheduled to arrive today, it is not uncommon for you to receive your overnighted order before you receive the shipping notification.

This was my first Woot! after being a member for nearly 4 years. My husband got me Lucky at Last for my birthday which just so happens to be St. Patrick's day. I asked him where he found the shirt and he informed me of shirt.woot! I ended up buying 2 of Hungry, Hungry, Games, 1 in small & 1 in medium since I heard that the women's sizes have changed (we'll have to see if EITHER size fits me). I am now addicted to this site!

Anybody go to the movie in this shirt this weekend? I cheaped out and didn't go with the overnight shipping, but I DID go to the movie this weekend. I thought it was a pretty good portrayal of the books. The costumes and makeup were fantastic. Even my girlfriend, who makes fun of me for what I choose to read (she reads like Tolstoy and intelligent things like that.) said "Wow, it's actually a pretty interesting story. Which is more than she could say about Twilight.
