ALSO . . . While I have my thoughts together on the subject of the shirt.woot brands discussion, I have a few personal things to express:
-- I think that part of the problem with Anvil shirt collars (and hemlines) becoming too loose is that the Anvil cloth seems more easily stretched. With my personal concern about collar size and thus wanting to avoid stretching collars, I have learned to take my T-shirts off by grasping one shoulder in each hand, then pulling over head, as opposed to grasping the collar to take it off, which can cause it to stretch over with use/time. Thus, I offer the suggestion that this 'shoulder' method may help Anvil owners retain a better fit of those shirts over time. Likewise, some people cross their arms in front of their torso and grab the hem/bottom of a shirt to pull off over the head, which I've found can make the lower portion of a shirt move toward that bell shape that is so unpopular (again, possibly due to the lighter/thinner fabric stretching more over time)
-- AND NOW FOR MY LITTLE RANT: I won't buy any more products having black inks on the asphalt-color shirts because the designs aren't visible enough; they don't contrast enough and fade into the background too much after repeated washings. I bought 'Nevermore' on Opening Night (a Must-Have) and despite the design not 'popping' enough to easily make out on that dark background, have proudly worn it (worn it out, even). Then I bought another crow shirt, 'Trying to Sing' (an Anvil), which uses black and white inks on the asphalt/dark grey blank, and unless one views the shirt up close, one really only sees the white ink, which sucks, frankly, though the shirt does get looks (e.g., What the heck is that white stuff on your shirt?) . . .
. . . PLEASE, shirt.woot, utilize a lighter-shade-of-grey blank shirt that will contrast enough with black ink so that the design is clearly visible from near or far!!!
I REALLY want another 'Nevermore' because mine is so worn and faded, and I'd also like to help keep it the 'Longest Running Shirt.Woot' by buying another (or two, or more, as gifts), but I want the design to be visible, really visible, and thus I won't put my limited funds toward something with the same old visibility problem.
I DO SO HOPE that shirt.woot will print 'Nevermore' on a lighter-grey shirt. (I know that a special, limited run of 'Nevermore' was offered, with some products [hoodies?] printed on a different grey, but IIRC it wasn't much different from the original, too-dark, AA-asphalt grey.
