The October $25K Cup is officially underway! $10,000 to the bestselling daily tee, $10,000 to the bestselling derby tee, and a few thousand here and there for the also-rans to get us all the way to $25K. It's not too late to throw your hat in the ring! Or your design. We'd actually prefer designs to hats...
Here it is, your first look at the rankings. The Philadelphia Spirits and Washington Werewolves "earned" an extra 25 points last week by each having a player ejected. The Sewer Gators had a similar "achievement" in week 2. Take a look at how it's all shaking out.
Missed the draft for your brother-in-law's seriously hostile fantasy league? Fret not! You can play with us instead. Here's how:
Last month we announced the 10K Cup, our big bid to hurl an additional $10,000 at one worthy arteest. We saw some great contenders over the course of July's four derbies, but the design that sold the most shirts on its first day can only be ...

Hey! I'm new here! What the f*&# is a "Derby"??
The Derby is our weekly shirt design contest, voted on by the people. Each week has its own unique theme (this one is "Be Bold"), and the top three voted designs get printed (and paid). Submissions begin at noon CST every Friday, and voting runs through the following Wednesday. You can get all the gritty details in our grittily detailed FAQ page. And all the guidelines for submission can be found right here.
Have questions that aren't addressed therein? Jump in the forums and start asking questions. Our community of artists, shirt lovers, and indentured servants will be happy (or, at least, willing) to help you through the process. Welcome to Shirt.Woot.
What do jockeys, svelte concierges, and "husky" boys have in common? They are the only people who wear a men's small shirt. And for the next few days, get a free, random men's small tee with every Shirt.Woot order -- it's A Stupid Small Shirt!
We're throwing a party over Labor Day weekend (details forthcoming -- promise) and we want to serve a cocktail inspired by one of our artists' designs. But all our master mixologists can think of is "The Binge" as a mixture of Bailey's and Blue Curaçao, and that sounds DISGUSTING.
Do you have a great idea for a Shirt.Woot cocktail? It should include ingredients found at a normal bar. If it sounds better than "The Binge," we'll give it a taste test (on company time, of course) and serve the best one at the party.
This job is so silly.
Shirt.Woot is throwing a real-person party in Seattle on September 1st to celebrate...we donno...parties? We'll announce all the details here on the blog on and on our Facebook page with all the details soon, so stay tuned, but part of the fun will be an "In-Real-Life Derby", in which the winner will be selected via a combination of technology and shouting. Sound awesome? It will be.
