Has Woot! ever considered adding a V-neck option to its t-shirts?

I know, i know...it seems against everything totally geeky and wootness, but there are a few shirts I have that I almost think they may look better or be more wearable as a v-neck.

aka..Nightlife or from this weeks derby shirts like...

Very very few designs would look better as a v-neck. You're not the first to suggest it and you won't be the last. But I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you.

I'm sure it's on their priority list somewhere among long sleeves, sweatshirts, posters, stickers, large format vinyl (to pimp your ride with), and other such things that have been suggested.

You forgot prints, for those designs that are apparently too good for shirts, never mind that it's not hard to frame a t-shirt as a print.

Someone once requested bags. Their idea was that Woot could just make the bags out of the cotton they use to make their shirts. I got good laugh out of that one.

Are we making requests now? I want temporary tattoos! Lots and lots of temporary tattoos.

Deleted. Vik had a good point, might not have been directed at me.

Thanks for taking it out of context.



I wouldn't take it personally, as I don't think he was referring to you. Many, many people over the years have commented on certain designs and said "I wouldn't buy this as a shirt, but I'd buy it as a print to put on my wall." I believe the OP was directing his comment mostly at those folks.

More colors definitely trumps v-necks for me. My closet is so full of royal blue, brown, and black that I'm just not buying shirts on those colors anymore. ... unless they're aaawwwwesome.

And asphalt. I have more asphalt than any other color. AA has lots of great colors, if Woot would just consider adding a few.

This has been on my mind for a long time. I see shirts I would buy ALL the time, and the only reason I never buy them is because I simply dislike crew-necks.

My argument is not that the shirts would look better in a V-neck, but that I just want it in a V-neck. My impulsive woot-shopping would easily translate to impulsive woot-t-shirt-shopping if there were V-neck options.

They had a couple of side sales over the last year that featured v-necks. I bought several shirts on each one and am glad I did because they haven't really printed more since.(not sure why maybe because it is winter?) I am hoping that woot didn't just decide to discontinue the v-neck option.

I think the paucity of shirts probably was because you need a pretty specific design to look good on a v-neck. Most if not all of them are a lot taller than they are wide to that they look good being on just one side of the shirt.

I would be in full support of woot someday just doing a v-neck derby but I don't really see it happening. Crew necks just seem to be more universal I guess.
