Winter Wondershirts!

It's dark and cold and miserable outside, so why the heck are you wearing a palm tree on your shirt? Get yourself some sweet winter-themed designs on hoodies, long-sleeved shirts, totes, and tees! Just be sure to layer up. It's cold out there.

Short-sleeve shirts to keep you warm.... Wait, that's not right.

What's your fave?

Love the totes, except they're not suitable for commuting with a laptop.

Any chance Woot will rethink their tote supplier and offer a slightly larger one made with good quality canvas, a shoulder strap, zipped pocket inside and a key chain hook?

... I can dream right?

I bought the 'All Is Calm' tee back on 12/22/2007, when it placed second in the winter derby. Glad to see it offered again! This time around there are both long sleeve (USA!) and short sleeve (Honduras/Nicaragua) versions.

My favorite shirt is khione, but I already own both long and short sleeved versions so I'll get Last Flight Home long-sleeved this time.

For those who are unaware, the artist of "Imposter," reprinting in this Woot Plus sale as a hoodie and a tote was caught plagiarizing another artist's work and hasn't had a first-time print at woot since, although they've reprinted several of her designs in Woot Plus sales since. This thread, with the story starting with this post, follows the discovery that "World Nom-ination" was plagiarized and subsequently pulled from publication. (This is the first response from the actual artist, Keevs; also, please note that tgentry posted one of the first responses; at the time, he wasn't yet a staff member, but his posts show up with the "staff" designation because he's staff now - but those weren't official responses.)

I am posting because I believe that each wooter should be able to make an informed decision about whether to buy the artist's reprints since she earns $2 for each purchase. When I first discovered woot, I didn't know the history and I happily purchased "Imposter." I have to admit: I love the design. I've felt like that bunny, trying desperate to fit in, more times than I can count. But I'm grateful for the wooters who passed along the links so I could find out for myself what happened. Make your own choices and don't bash others for their choices: this isn't the thread for that.

Khione is a gorgeous shirt and I'd love to see another shiny metallic print by that artist (I also have Sea Chariot). Solstice is another favorite, I love winter blues (colors, not mood) so a warmer long sleeve version is tempting.

They did offer messenger bags before, but sales were low. Collectively, the two designs sold 46.

Seriously Woot, why are you reprinting a design from a proven plagiarizer? Don't you want to keep that all swept under the rug? I guess the expected sales must be worth the renewed disgust of the few who pay some attention.

edit: On a friendlier note, Khione is great and it's nice to see it again.

Woot, you are so infuriating, I can't be too angry about this side sale including Ramy and Seki because you also happen to be re-printing Khione, Solstice, Nose Thief and other good ones.

I will say that Woot surely has other "cute" artists who could fill those spots!

I've been waiting for a Khione reprint! my first edition is too big (makes a good nightshirt though).

Did you want Summer Moon part Blue??
Clicky clicky to buy!

Messenger bags are cumbersome with their giant flap, refuse to stand on their own and, there's no nice way to say this, they're pretty cheesy. I don't doubt they had so few sales.

I'm thinking more along the lines of something similar to LLBean's Boat and Tote bags. Durable, can hold anything/go anywhere and still look great after a beating.

So I see the two designs I mentioned were missing from the spiritgreen sale last week are here now (Nose Thief and Hungry Igloo). Ah, woot, you were just playing with us, weren't you?

Now to decide on the long sleeves.... so many I like! No Hungry Igloo LS? I'm guessing AA doesn't have a royal blue long sleeve, huh? Still, overall, loving the non-imposters in this sale.

Ooh, I'd be so broke if they started offering bags like that!

forever fighting the urge to buy something just because it is cheap and cool...wait, it's cheap and cool, let me click that big yellow button!

Here I was, thinking I've seen every shirt at one time or another, and BAM, you proved me wrong. I swear, lousy memory aside, I've never seen the majority of these Winter Wondershirts. And how "All is calm" got past me I will never know. I've taken countless snowy cardinal photos and it's a must have.

Same. But I still can't resist an adorable tote as they are now. They're perfect for a quick jaunt to the store or library.

*ICK* I wouldn't purchase either of those prints REGARDLESS of what they put them on.

I do agree, though, another type of bag would be nice. But I can see where it may be cost prohibitive.

I don't have the links to the designs in question, but as I recall it was the concept that was stolen, not the actual image. S/he redrew the image.

It'd be like carving a copy of Mt. Rushmore and saying it's your design and getting full credit for it. OK, maybe using a national landmark was a bad example, but you get the gist.

How do the long sleeve shirts fit compared to the men's short sleeve?

They fit just like the older USA-made Woot shirts, except with long sleeves.
