Not much help for me, since I need the length of an AA MXL. I may be short, but I like my shirts long. I bought an anvil WXL in the last random sale, and it was too short out of the bag.

Yes!! This! Bought two even!

Seriously there are two more shirts in the reckoning I would buy right now if they were on AA. :/ How did this happen?? How can it happen more??

I'm pretty sure the only reason it's on AA is because they had the purple shirts. People buying up this side sale hoping for an AA return are going to be seriously disappointed..

Anvil also has purple. Just not eggplant. Nonetheless it still helps people with their AA and purple shirt fixations. I would still like to see an interesting experiment set up so that people can "put their money where their mouth is". AA and Anvil have similar colors, so set up a series of sales where people are given the option of what they want. Prices aren't going to go down, and I don't know the cost structure at shirt.woot so for example:

First day sales --> $12 on Anvil, $15 on AA.
Second day onward --> $15 on Anvil, $18 on AA.

Or, run it as a side sale. Let the customers decide if they want to pay more for an AA blank.

I'm not buying because I'm expecting everything to change, I'm buying because it's a chance to get a shirt I like that actually fits me. Also purple.

They don't for the 980/880, so it'd have to be a custom order.

I only have one of the designs but it looks great in purple and I think its neat to have more than one of the same shirt in a different color

So I have a gray Nyan's MXL washed and worn a couple times that I would trade someone for playful foxes or nightlife on purple :D

Is the purple line on "In Harmony" on this version and I just can't see it, or is it just not there?

For comparisons sake

I don't see it - that's a great catch! I believe shirt.woot usually reuses templates, so it's likely that it will print in some color or another on the final version, but it won't be very obvious if it's purple, and it's the kind of small detail that would be very easy to overlook when preparing to print.

tgentry: could you (or another shirt.woot staffer) confirm what will happen with the print? Purple line, no line, kick line?

Hey guys, sorry for the mistake. The final shirt should use the exact same colors and art as the original design, only on a purple blank. The error should be in the sale image setup only. I apologize for the mistake and I'll see about getting it corrected.

EDIT: Should be fixed.

Can we have purple always? Pleeeeease?



I agree!

I've been kicking myself for waiting too late to get Fresh Cake for a year...but now in PURPLE, it was worth the wait. Purple is my favorite color of all time.

Let Purple Reign!

Congratulations to Narfcake for being first and last wooter on Fresh Cake remix! I know you really wanted to pull that off. Looking forward to a purple Fresh Cake family picture in a few years.

Thanks so much for responding so quickly and for getting the image updated before the sale ended! Muchly appreciated.

A final THANK YOU to everyone who was responsible for pulling this together: tgentry, JenDupre, the artists, and [I suspect] several other woot staffers of whom I'm not aware. This has been so much fun and the best part hasn't even happened yet: receiving my PURPLE shirts in a week or so!

They need to offer Artichokey on the next round of eggplant/purple shirts.

Ditto. Thanks, Travis!

You forgot to thank yourself for suggesting Fresh Cake in the onset.

And even though my wallet is cringing, thank you for bringing some excitement back to shirt.woot.

I'm really hoping that all the purple love will lead to purple being added to the regular line up, or at least to more purple-palooza sales! I bought six!
Now, for the pleading, I'd love to see a teal and a nice burnt orange!

Regular, I'm doubting it, but a side sale every so often would be nice. Me ... I ended up ... with a dozen here?

I think our best potential for another AA side sale is to pick a color that's offered in both 2001 and 2102 styles, and NOT offered in the 980 and 880.

Well then looking at the color choices I guess I vote for turquoise and fuschia!

Where are my shirts? Why have they not yet appeared in my closet? I ordered them one meeeeeeellion years ago and chose the teleportation shipping option. I wanted to call customer service to complain about this, but since your website doesn't provide such a number, I emailed service@woot.com ten seconds ago and they haven't responded yet. I hate your website AND your monkeys. I will never be doing business with woot again! I mean, unless you offer more shirts on purple or a Kelty item that I don't own or Binge on... well, Binge on anything, really.

Also, NO PUMPKIN COFFIN? WORST WOOT-OFF EVAR.

Not that you will feel any better, but it was a 5 day sale. And my smartposted Nyan shipped tonight, sadly my next-dayed little nudist not yet. One can hope.

That's why I always check woot. Even though I hadn't bought a shirt since they switched blanks, I always check. Keep checking frequently, because tgentry recently told us to "be patient" hinting that more awesomeness is on the way!
