Time again for another march toward t-shirt doom! Discuss this week's life-or-death struggle for sales supremacy as chronicled on the Reckoning page all week long.

Here's how the Reckoning week runs now: every Tuesday at midnight, we retire the previous week's lowest-selling shirts and launch this here discussion thread. Tuesday around noon we'll post the all-new, all-early Reckoning Recon. On Friday, we'll juice demand and prime the pump with a little weekend reminder post. Finally, on the following Monday, the Day of Reckoning post sounds the last call for the Reckoned shirts. All of those posts will be linked below. Monday night (or Tuesday morning), it starts all over again. The Reckoning, she is a hungry beast...

Not as good as last week. 20 for 27 this time around. Flipped 8/9, 14/15, and you underestimated the Ninja. All things told a pretty good showing. ;)

74% ... C.

Last week, there was talk about the most designs by any one artist in a single week ... I think I found it: Reckoning #81.

Solo - #6, #13, #22, #23, Bystander
Collaborations - #3, #24

It also happens to be the most designs getting the axe by any one artist in a week too (I think) - 2 1/2.

The shirt is taking a bigger hit from the sales of the hoodie and long sleeve. Which BTW, Woot might want to look into the colors on the l/s shirt ... if you think black on asphalt is hard to read, wait until you get Nevermore with 'Black C' print on a black shirt!

Yeah I was kind of wondering... so those sales do not count into the reckoning, then? What kind of an influence did the hoodies during shirtoberfest have on Nevermoe?

We don't mind seasons, really we don't. It's nice to watch the leaves change color, and we can totally deal with some frosty mornings or chilly nights to snuggle up. But this "sunset at 4:15 pm" business is WEAK SAUCE. Here are the Reckoning standings as of when I copied and pasted this, now I'm gonna go buy one of those Happy Lights:

  1. Run Away! Run Away!
  2. Family Breakfast
  3. He'll Probably Be Okay
  4. Marsupial in My Pocket
  5. Schrödinger’s Equation (noob)
  6. The Binge
  7. This Was a Triumph
  8. Epic Fail
  9. Kitchen Warfare
  10. Nevermore
  11. It Came Out Of Nowhere
  12. That Is The Question (noob)
  13. Breakfast of Plumbers
  14. Everything is Gold (noob)
  15. Acquired Taste
  16. Questionable Table of Elements
  17. Unstealthiest Ninja
  18. Easiest Thanksgiving Recipe
  19. Not Paying Attention
  20. The Cheese is a Liederkranz

Totally true.

Looks like Fluid Dynamics is the only Danger Zone shirt with a chance of escaping this week. If it does, that begs the question of who will takes its place, Not Paying Attention or Cheese?

My money is on Cheese surviving yet again, thanks to some dedicated fans.

Easiest Thanksgiving Recipe is probably the one most at risk, actually. That is if Fluid Dynamics survives, though ... yesterday's (+16) is bringing its average down.

Grim Optimism is a collab too, or so it says in the text for Imposter. Good find! Wrong link? #81?

Whoops - yeah, wrong link; original post corrected. In the description for Grim, it's not listed as a collab, hence why I grouped it as solo.

Your original post was correct - there was some confusion with the writeup for imposter, but none of the shirts listed were actually collabs.

Mine should arrive in the next couple of days so I'll join you in that exclusive club. The last shirt I bought was Taking the Bus, another low seller. Actually on looking back at my shirts, the last five shirts I bought for me (as opposed to as for a gift) didnt make it past the first week of the Reckoning. Hope I'm not some kind of jinx.

Seems like "Family Breakfast" got into the exclusive 8,000's in record time, but perhaps "Run Away! Run Away!" will one up it?

Also seems like the 8,000 club is getting pretty crowded, maybe time we streamline it to the 10,000 club?

While Run Away! Run Away! will hit the 8k mark this week, it's also on track to drop into 2nd place; Family Breakfast is currently selling at a stronger pace.

Neither are close to the record set by The Cheese is a Liederkranz, however. 3,000 sold out in 97 minutes, cleared 8,000 in 6 days, and it hit the 10k mark in its second week.

8k is still a significant number, so I'll leave it at that. Most of the shirts came from the days of 3k and lower sellouts, which really makes their sale numbers all the more substantial.

Neither are close to the record set by The Cheese is a Liederkranz, however. 3,000 sold out in 97 minutes, cleared 8,000 in 6 days, and it hit the 10k mark in its second week.

8k is still a significant number, so I'll leave it at that. Most of the shirts came from the days of 3k and lower sellouts, which really makes their sale numbers all the more substantial.



Plus there are rumors that the later shirts took steroids - maybe the recent ones deserve asterisks

[Hope you didn't blow away in the wind last night!]

Trying to understand the methods here, please indulge me. I can see that the ranking isn't based on total shirts sold, is it ranked by number of sales on a daily basis? Weekly? I'm confused.

It also held on to the #1 spot for seven weeks, three weeks shy of tying The Binge's record of 10 weeks. Reckoning #201 finally knocked it to second with the debut of In the Library With the Wrench.

I'm always fascinated comparing the meteoric appeal of shirts like Library (which hung around for 13 weeks) and more slow and steady shirts like Unstealthiest Ninja (which hit a peak of #2 and is still hanging in there).

Daily average over the past four weeks, debut day and woot-off hours excluded.

Wait...why am I in this hand basket?

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

Hence there was the subsequent discussions about front loaded sales, production cap increases, etc. We're still shy of another >5k debut day seller to see the effects that the 6k cap has on post-debut sales and none have been around long enough to show the long term survival aspects.

While I won't go so far as to say "fascinated" despite my shirt nerdiness, it is still very interesting how some designs keep finding the customers while others, which were just as hot, fizzle out so much quicker.

Perhaps the best explanation I have for both Unstealthiest Ninja and Acquired Taste is that they're both silly, not overly cutesy, and doesn't rely on pop culture to keep the design propped. It is notable that 12 of the top 20 sellers are NOT pop culture based, BTW.

(On a completely personal note, I would love to see Unstealthiest Ninja at least surpass Fresh Cake in longevity and sales. Three more weeks ...)

Hmmm, I count 11.
