Back to School Bonanza

All right, you're back. Back in the saddle. Back at school. Ready to erase last year's lingering memories of shame and social pariah-ism once and for all. But it all hinges on your first day. You've got to show up dressed to impress. But three-piece suits are expensive, so we're your only hope.

Hmm... What are the woot totes like? I have a hilarious amount of books this semester and they don't all fit in my backpack so the overencumbered one seems like it's calling
My name.

I spy the glorious return of Heather Gray! (at least for long-sleeve tees.)

Are these ipad sleeves new? Will my almost bought ipad really be happy in it? Will it cover the ipad & the smart cover? Lot of questions for 12 bucks!

Can we please get pics of an iPad in the sleeve? We know we can't keep it but just want to make sure it covers what we think it will cover. Assumptions can be bad sometimes...

Ah, the end of summer is nigh. As such, my thoughts turn to the wit and wisdom of good old Pete and Pete:

Narfcake carries his tablet in a shirt (I know, who's surprised?). I'm tempted to get him an actual shirt-tablet-cover, except I think his tablet isn't an iPad.

Lots of really cool designs in this week's side sale, but I confess I'm not ready for the return of heavy-weight hoodies!

Here's a sample taken at my desk:





They're pretty durable, made of neoprene (wetsuit material) and stitched together well. Great for slipping over an iPad and throwing in your bag. They won't compete with the $50-60 cases, but for $12 they're a pretty fun and inexpensive alternative.

Really disappointed, you think everyone has an iPad? Well guess again. Only 1 backpack? Just 2 totes? You should have put more effort in the backpacks and totes for sure. The Binge in a backpack would have been a great back to school item. One problem you would have had to raise the limit, I would have needed at least 6 to keep from disappointing the grand kids and others. As things are, I will pass.

I was thinking about buying a woot hoodie and I was just wondering if anyone knows the quality? Are they a thicker hoodie? Or are they the thinner quality material? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks fellow wooters!

I own 3 woot pullover hoodies and I love them. They are soft on the inside and have withstood a winter's worth of wear. (Wash in cold, tumble dry low) I personally feel like they are good quality. I'm 6'1" 230lbs,(not 100% muscle;) but decent shape) and the 2Xs fit perfectly.

Since the heather gray long-sleeved tees are made in the USA, I'm guessing these are still AA shirts? Anyone know if they run about the same in fit as the men's short-sleeved shirts? I would assume they do, but you know what happens when you assume things...

The size chart linked on the long-sleeved shirt pages are specific to that shirt. That's a good place to start.

Please keep up the iPad sleeves. Nothing here for my taste, but for the right design, the price is great.

Gaaah! I really love all these designs, but I live in Texas, so I can't wear long sleeves for another 3 months, I don't need a tote, and I don't have an ipad! Why must woot tease me with such awesome stuff that I can't use??

I'm interested in the backpack, but would like to know more about it. Who makes it? What's the quality like? I must consult the google before I call in the financial resources.

I remember someone griping about the Shakespeare A-Z one having little quibbly mistakes when it came out as a shirt. This one looks slightly different. Did the artist tweak it?

Dear Woot: I was so psyched to see Code of Arms! I would LOVE YOU FOREVER if you'd do Code of Arms as a regular, non-vee, non-long-sleeve tee again. Regular tee! You know you can do it!

This was my husband's favorite shirt ever that unfortunately turned PINK in an unfortunate laundry accident. Help make me the best wife ever and get a replacement. :<

Man, $20-25 is a lot to spend on a long-sleeve t-shirt or hoodie without having tried it on first. Was really hoping to snag a lightweight zip-up hoodie to wear when the office is feeling chilly before this jumbo woot coupon expires on 8/31. Code of Arms or University Wikipedius would look great.

seconded.

also, are there photos of the back side and inside anywhere? hopefully this won't shrink as much as my kid's reflections on pi t-shirt.

ETA: some relevant links about the backpack:

i want to get this for my kid, but i'm not convinced it will hold up to a few years of abuse and 30 pounds of books.

Yep, last winter they did both zip-up and pullover hoodies. Here's the zip-up version of The Binge! If sales were decent enough, they'll probably bring 'em back later. Mid-August is still kind of early for cozy sweatshirts...

The issue on teh zipper hoodies was that all the zippers were WHITE! regardless of the hoodie color.

As for people complaining about the iPad, this isn't a CASE it's a SLIP COVER. It's for safer transport, not use, which means it 'works' for any 10" tablet on the market, because you always have to take it off before you use it.

If tgentry could provide a picture of what it looks like with a Kindle Fire or other 7 tablet in the case, for those who still don't believe size matters, we would be greatly appriciated.

FINALLY, I like how these side sales are branching into other merchandice, but for anything that isn't clothing we need MORE PICTURES, and MORE INFORMATION, ON THE MAIN PAGE. I know it's a pain, expecially if, like the mugs, they're done out of house and you don't have finished samples to show people yet. The back pack is the worst, in a way, because I own 6 backpacks, and they've got 4 different styles between them. I'd love to have Reflections in 1 of those 4 styles, and hate it in 1 of them.

Since the pullover hoodies are back, I will say this:

My Woot! pullover hoodie is the most wonderful, warm softest amazing thing possibly in the history of ever (it's also the awesome "Race for Something" design)

Very tempted to splurge on another one, but I'm not sure about the gray color. Hrmm.

The zippers for the lightweight hoodies are white, but the zippers for the heavyweight hoodies are shirt-colored, I believe.

Heavyweight pullover hoodies are manufactured by Gildan, assuming that they're using the same hoodies as last year. I have, um, too many, and they've survived in perfect shape. If you like your hoodies slouchy, I'd suggest sizing up. I have them in both size small and medium; I wear AA WM and found that the small hoodie fit perfectly - but when I wear hoodies, I usually want them to fit big/be able to disappear inside them, and I found that the medium was a better size for that.

Thanks for replying! I did see the size chart last night...the long sleeve shirts looks to be the same measurements as the AA short sleeve t-shirts. I guess what I'd really like to know is whether these are indeed AA shirts...and if so, if the L/S are the same in quality as the S/S AA shirts.

On the lightweight hoodies, yeah, it imitates the AA look.

On the zip-up sweatshirts though? The photo of the actual product doesn't show a white zipper, it shows that it's covered in the same sweatshirt fabric... Same with the How We Roll zip-up.

Once again, for the reading impaired. These are slip covers which will fit any 10 inch tablet, regardless of manufacturer of tablet.

No reply yet on how a 7" (like the fire) fits into one.

I asked Narfcake; he says that last winter/spring, the long-sleeve shirts were AA 2007 and the same quality as the short-sleeve AA shirts. Obviously, there's a chance that shirt.woot is using different made-in-the-U.S. blanks since they haven't confirmed that they're the same as what they used last winter/spring, but given the sizing chart, it seems like a safe bet that the long-sleeves are still AA 2007.

Can a woman please comment on the fit of the V-neck shirts? According to measurements, the XL will be close enough to the WXL to work, but does it look decent covering the girls?

Are the iPad sleeves made by Built? It looks like some of the cases I have for other tech toys. Also, is there a lining? I am also wondering if the sleeve will fit over an iPad with the Apple Smart Case on it. I think I saw someone else ask this, but didn't see an answer.

During the Coffee themed "Plus" I was on the fence for the same reason - worried about the depth of the V and how things would land. I don't recall what the measurement was (maybe 7" from the collar?) but I didn't come back in time to get the shirt I wanted. For what it's worth, the difference in the Anvil crewneck MXL and WXL is negligible in terms of space for my girls (I'm a D) and based on the info I got from others, I would've ordered the XL in a V-neck. If there was a color besides gray, I'd be all over it this time, too!
