I finally finished reading all the comments. Took a while, but it seems most people should give these new shirts a chance. I will say that for me personally AA shirts are a perfect fit, and I spent a while trying to find a shirt that fit my oddly shaped body. For a guy that is about 5'9" and weighs 135 lbs, it isn't easy buying t-shirts. I buy men's mediums because my chest is on the border line of small and medium, and the length is just right(doesn't ride up on me when I sit down). Another plus was minimal pointy sleeves.
Shirt.Woot really got me into printed tees, and I love the site. That being said, I am willing to try the new shirts at least once. If they shrink as much as the AAs then the 3/8 inch difference in length might be the deal breaker for me.
As for the shirts not being made in America anymore, I am saddened by this, but it was never really the selling point for me. I pay for a well fitting tee that is witty or stunning at a reasonable price. I do support manufacturing in America, but it has become a rarity in these changing times.
Bilyum it up all day long!

A shirt with a fox. I guess I'll buy one and see how I like these foreign things. But honestly, unless you guys start paying the artists $1200-$1500 per design (and $3 per reckoning sale) rather than the $1000 per design to ALSO keep up with inflation, I really feel cheated over the switch to $12 combined with $2-3 cheaper shirts.
You rely not only on your customers to keep your business up but also on designers to supply you with quality work. What was $1000 4 years ago is worth depressingly less these days.
