So, I'm curious-- if I have an Anvil shirt in my closet, is there a way to tell which type of blank it's on? Is that tied to the RN number on the tag?
It's a Blue Man Group concert shirt. Quality is subpar compared to my AA woot tees, imho.
I'm also interested how long these were tested at HQ, in regards to how they wash up and so forth. Was it a month? Several? I've had things wash up great for a couple weeks then suddenly it's like it disintegrated overnight. Not from Anvil in particular (unless it's one of the ones my husband cut the tag out of), but it makes me dubious.
Either way, I can't understand the price hike when the price of the blanks went down. That's kind of the worst part at the moment for me.

But if the shirts cost the same, or are now cheaper, then why do I need to pay more? And if the new shirts are, indeed, more expensive, then why not leave the jobs in the US?
Hear, hear. The price increase I was okay with (although I did pretty much stop buying shirts on the first day, I've only bought from the Reckoning or randoms since the price went up). Switching shirt blanks... I'm less okay with, but I suppose it's understandable. But both within a span of less than two months? Simply not okay.
I appreciate the wootstaff's dedication to being available and responsive in this thread, but I don't think even a reassurance from every single person who works for woot would manage to convince me that this isn't just a way to expand the profit margin at the expense of product quality.
