I'll give them one more try. Declining quality and now this "must buy two" minimum is off-putting.

I would be very, very wary of buying from shirtwoot! I bought an xl t-shirt once and when I received it, it was marked xl and would be lucky if it fit a 12 year old! And because of the price it's not worth sending them back.

It's not even worth the $6 if I only get to wear a shirt once. Please Woot, PLEASE fix this! Shirts I bought several years ago still fit fine.. its just anything from in the past year or so.. I don't know what the brand of the blanks were because I always remove the annoyingly large tags.



Oh bother! I did not know ordering the right fitting t-shirt could be so problematic! I have heard of the torment of finding the perfect fitting jeans (my personal affliction), but now t-shirts? What is the world coming to?

For the most part, the women's XL shirts I have ordered within the last few months haven't been too incredibly short after washing, except for the 'silver' grey color. I wonder if the length varies by color? Or perhaps I tend to notice the shortness of the 'silver' shirts more since I am more paranoid about dropping food on it.

Did you check the sizing chart before you order? That should be standard procedure for ordering any article of clothing sight unseen.

Also keep in mind that Woot changed suppliers a year and a half ago; some folks dropped down two sizes to get something that fitted like they were used to.

There is definitely the chance that he got an XL kids size. Once I ordered 2 XL tees, and they sent me a single 2XL one. But they made good on that goof up with 2 correctly sized tees sent FedEx!

For those that still want the random t-shirts, you can still get them, for a couple more days.

Probably not, actually, as the kids shirts are sized with numbers instead. With the Woot/AA shrits, the ! was red.

The current Woot/Anvil kids shirts have the same dark blue ! tag as the men's shirts.

Seems like they still have an overstock issue; a far cry from the past when random shirt day meant multiple sizes sell out before the day was up.

Sadly, they are serious. There have been many posts deleted on the dailies when folks chimed in regarding the blanks.

(For those inclined to do some reading, the two main threads are " Time to Change Our Shirt: Shirt.Woot Now Using Anvil Blank Tees" and "Let's Talk Lady Sizes".)

I have gotten the ASS shirt and the black-white-red all over.
Neither can be worn around kids. Too bad they did not send you a top seller along with the ASS shirt. No surprise that one did not fly off the shelves

I'm new here, but I can't imagine what all the complaining about sizing regarding shirt suppliers is about. My Mens S fits like a Mens S should, more so than most shirts I buy. Maybe I just got two AA shirts? Regardless, wishing I had bought more!

The men's shirts remained the same width as before; it's the women's and kids sizes that changed the most.

New, they start out a slight bit shorter, but after a couple wash cycles, the differences get more pronounced. My personal experience is they shrink in length even when line dried, and about 10% going through a dryer. For some folks, this isn't a big deal; for others, it is. (There's more, but I'm not about to turn this into another of my "rant" post.)

Maybe I just got two AA shirts? Regardless, wishing I had bought more!


If the tag says 'made in the USA', it's American Apparel. If it says made in Honduras or Nicaragua, then it's Anvil.

Your expectations need to be lowered. The shirts are still shipped by Woot (so give them up to a week to pack) via SmartPost (give them up to a week between each distribution center).

Well, I finally got my shirts:

And I already have the 2nd one, which is total garbage (I would rather have a real Periodic Table than this made-up nonsense. And it's from Aug 06, 2011, so that means it's been sitting in a box in a warehouse for 2 years.

I'm done, woot. Next time, donate the junk shirts to the poor, don't stick your customers with them. S h a m e on you!

My shirts came on Monday. I ordered 3 sets for 6 shirts. 2XL because of the length issues on them, I'd rather have my Tshirts tucked in and stay tucked in and have them too wide, then become un-tucked. I guess I'm crazy that way.

Anyway.

Out of 6 shirts, I did receive 1 duplicate. Which I suppose is fine, since I am planning on wearing them as 'workshop shirts' anyway. Unfortunately 4 of the six were Silver colored, so not the greatest for use as working shirts, but oh well.

http://shirt.woot.com/offers/yale-waitlist

http://shirt.woot.com/offers/celtic-skull - this is the duplicate

http://shirt.woot.com/offers/p-is-for-prey

http://shirt.woot.com/offers/questionable-table-of-elements

http://shirt.woot.com/offers/the-mrowr - in Silver

Pretty sure the two non-silver ones may end up being normal wear T-shirts because they're funny. Overall at $6 each, worth it for me as I'm a sucker for a $4-$6 T-shirt anyway. Just wish I didn't get the one dupe.....

... and I rather have the latter instead of the former because it's NOT serious. Different strokes for different folks.

It was reprinted recently in a side sale. If it truly was a shirt from two years ago, it'd be on a Woot-tagged AA shirt.

Another disappointment for me.

The last time they had 2-packs, I bought two of them, and every single shirt was black. I got a couple good designs like the cute Game of Thrones crest, but it felt like someone lazily put four black shirts into the bag.

I just received my purchase from this recent order, and three of the shirts are black and one is a dark navy. Basically almost black. HOW DISAPPOINTING. I know that there are other colors of shirts! I see others getting blues and yellows and browns and creams.

I know it's "random" and you take a gamble with what you get. However, this just feels like someone was horribly lazy and couldn't put in the effort to put some variety in there. Twice in a row.

Many recent designs, both new and reprinted in the side sales, were dark shirts.

Indeed, it's luck-of-the-draw. They cull everything, put them in stacks, and start packing. If it happens that they were in a stack of all dark shirts, well, that's what gets sent out. Some folks get all hits; others, all misses.
