Hey! If they'd had that umbrella before, they might have scared that giant panda off- I wonder if there are giant eyes painted on top of it?

Can't be true, they'd go to hell for cheat...oh...nevermind.

love this shirt but everyone knows true Seattle-ites (or PNW'ers) don't use umbrellas.

True, but only tourists go see the landmarks too. And it wouldn't look as good with a giant parka.

I love Seattle, but now that I'm living nowhere near it anymore I definitely have to have this shirt to remind me of home.

If only the space needle was replaced the the Transamerica Pyramid building I would buy 3 of these without thinking. Amazing design!

Tman2088 pushed for this shirt to be made on zkelvin's behalf. Well done sir, well done.

I recently moved from Rochester, NY to Seattle. Which makes me one of the very few who moved to Seattle to get less rain. Bring it on.

Not this year. Plus, Texas is huge... so it varies. When it takes at least 14 hours of driving to get across the state, you get a few different climates. I grew up in the Houston area and we used to frequently have thunderstorms with serious rain on most afternoons in July and August. I've been in San Antonio for 5 years now and I've missed regular rain that I used to see in Houston... it's extremely dry. Texas has been hurting for rain this whole summer. When one of the tropical storms had the potential to hit the Texas area, many people said it would be worth the damage of a category 1 or 2 hurricane just to put a dent in the drought.

Well, it looks like Washington and Oregon are doing pretty well! The thing I'm confused about is Vermont...

Next time I'm in Vancouver, I will make a point to drive down to Seattle to see if the city picked up on the Idea... or at the very least spot someone wearing the shirt. That would be pretty epic.

As a Seattle resident, I vouch that this pretty much sums up daily life here. I wouldn't be caught dead using an umbrella, but I sure as hell would wear this shirt.

This is ridiculous!



Because Portland is a worthless excuse of a city, and any shirt that identifies Portland would not only have to be covered in hippie, but made of some sort of hemp based fabric, lest the hippies get all bent out of shape and start protesting or levying a tax against Woot?

Oh, and Seattlites use umbrellas....when it actually rains. It just so happens that it only really "rains" a few times a year (today was such a day). Umbrellas are useless when it's just a mist. And yes, I'm a local.

Which is also why I can't buy this shirt. You can't live in Seattle and wear a Seattle shirt. I'm pretty sure there's some sort of law against it.

Hey! We had 9 sunny days in a row with temps over 80° this summer! That was about it for summer. Now it's late fall, heading for winter. :-(

It's raining here today in SoCal, and my morning commute took 70 minute (for 20 miles), because folks don't know how to drive when it's wet outside.

Next week, it's supposed to be 90+ again. Ugh.

Yeah! I want one with some bridges! I did send a shirt to my moving-to-Seattle-soon comrade,though.

Yeah but it'd look good underneath my shell, like an ironic statement about our disdain for umbrellas. And the tacky tourists who tote them. And the duck.

I find this is more effective at dissuading people from moving here than telling them it rains a lot.



So true - it's not the rain that gets us native Seattle-ites down (like others have said, it doesn't really rain like many other parts of the country), it's the soul-sucking, neverending gray skies.

That said, this shirt perfectly captures both the rain and the gray very well, and I may have to get it.

The shirt has been reckoned and no longer in print. Try teetrade.org, wootswap.com, or the random shirt trade center in the Shirt.Woot forum. You might get lucky and find it there.

Was excited when I ordered this, but less than impressed when I received it.

Design was great, but the shirt itself was constructed poorly. Runs at least 2 sizes smaller that most brands I've worn (yes, I did check the size chart). The logo sits at a slant like a backslash; my best guess is a fault in how the body and sleeves were put together unaligned, as the whole thing feels off.

Disappointed in the American Apparel shirt, I hope future orders don't come in the same quality.

Is it too much to ask for this shirt to be reprinted somehow? Maybe in a 'weather' collection...? I grabbed The Umbrellas long sleeve from the Spring Has Sprung collection (http://shirt.woot.com/offers/the-umbrellas-long-sleeve-tee) and would love this shirt to add to my own personal Seattle collection. I am a devoted Seattlite and would love to own this beautiful shirt!
