You Asked for It

Every time we put up a Woot Plus sale here on Shirt, you guys come in and WHINE, WHINE, WHINE about all the cool stuff we SHOULD HAVE added. Well, you know what we're going to do to get you to stop your whining? We're going to give you what you want. That's right, it's a plus sale of all of the stuff you asked for in the forums. We're going to make great parents some day.

I am seriously close to picking up a copy of Skatetown. If for no other reason than it appears to be printed on AA.

The zip up hoodie blanks are nothing like they used to be. Awful cheep fabric, like cheese cloth, not even fit for use as toilet paper. How can you charge $30 for something that worthless? It doesn't even take prints well, they're not solid but patchy like they were done with iron on transfers. GARBAGE.

Yes! Skatetown will be mine. Although I feel like it's cheating.

Nope, not quite what I asked for, but some great designs there I'd love to own in my size again...perhaps on purple?!? I miss being able to wear a lot of those, which I own in 2X or 3X, but they are WAAAY too big for me now.

So, I'm putting in a request for more purple and orange shirts for the next "you asked for it" sale.

PS. Skatetown doesn't count!

I don't ask anymore, although I might have enough suggestions for a robot robot* robot plus sale.

Couldn't Care Less Bear almost tempting for those don't talk to me days.

*think hoodie ; )

I would have bought Couldn't Care Less Bear on a heather gray tshirt. Zip hoodies are not my thing, and definitely not in the budget.

A shirt from she who must not be named? Interesting.

But I want a Tshirt of Monkey King, none of this stuff with long sleeves. What witchery is that?

WINE, WINE, WINE? I thought this was supposed to be SHIRTwoot!

I'm seriously tempted by the "Couldn't Care Less Bear" zip hoodie for two reasons - love the design, and I love the zip hoodies. I own one zip hoodie already back in February ("Shhh" in red) and it's still really comfy six months later so I've been looking forward to the day the zip hoodies return...

Anybody notice new zip hoodie blanks? I never was really fond of the original choice and stopped buying them because of it. I would be willing to give another brand a shot.

One time I bought the READ shirt in a V neck but then it never shipped and so I never got it. I got a refund but I wanted the shirt. So that's one whine...

Also larger women's shirts. I realize this is the manufacturer's fault pretty much but again, this is a whine...

Oh, yeah. And my PayPal back.

There are two different zip hoodies that's used here at Woot. There's the regular zip-up hoodie, which is a Gildan 18600 (made in Honduras), and the lightweight zip-up hoodie, which is an Alternative Apparel 1970 (made in Dominican Republic). The Gildan is a medium-weight fleece, the Alternative Apparel is a lightweight tri-blend fabric.

Larger than the Anvil 880 blanks that have been in use for over a year now? They're almost the same in width as the men's shirts and roughly 1-2 sizes above the older American Apparel blanks. More information on this here (though the shirt staff tag on the QPs no longer applies).

If you're taking requests... "A Wonderful Day on AA short or long sleeve, or pullover hoodie, or even a tote, would make it a wonderful day! ;)

This may be a foolish question but does the Typo tag on the Lewish Carroll shirt mean there is a typo on the shirt?

UMBRAGE!

You guys forgot to put Two Is Better on a hoodie, zip-up or otherwise. I will strongly consider buying fewer things until this injustice is rectified. Maybe.

It seems my many requests for a hoodie (not lightweight) of Procrastination University were ignored. I've asked for it. Nicely. Could be cranberry, navy, grey, whatever. So, I'll ask again. Please, for the next "You Asked for It" sale, a PU hoodie, please???? Thank you.

So... what's the story behind Skatetown? I feel like I'm missing an inside joke or a pop culture reference.

Skatetown is notorious as one of the worst selling woot shirts of all time...thus making it a cult classic. Add the fact that it was "out of print" until now and boom... a rush to buy an ugly shirt....I got one myself for that very reason. Couldn't help myself.

I would love a Fresh Cake side sale. There has not been enough Fresh Cake. I must have more than olive and purple short sleeve T's and light weight zip up hoodies with Fresh Cake. I live in a cold climate. I would love a winter wardrobe of Fresh Cake with long sleeve t's and pull over hoodies. Perhaps more short sleeve t's in different colors. I have converted 1/2 of my extended family into Fresh Cake followers. I think I can add the other half with more options. My mother only makes a comment about once a week or so that she doesn't have a Fresh Cake long sleeve t. Apparently the fact that they haven't been made available yet does not matter to her.

Yes, and 'whiffling' is also misspelled as 'wiffling'.

Yep! I don't know how many times I've asked for Cloak of Visibility as a pullover hoodie. And while you're at it, Woot, it should also be glow-in-the -dark, because that would be perfection.

AA is made in the USA. If the shirt specs say Honduras/Nicaragua or anything other than USA, then it's not AA.

AA shirts will look like this...

Features:

Fiber Content: 4.5 oz 100% Combed Ringspun Cotton
Manufactured In: USA
Printed In: Carrollton, Texas, USA

Since woot CAN procure orange AA tees for the occasional sale, I suggest woot do a
"Child Stars" or "Tees of TV" run, which would include tees like:

From Victorious:
Think of The Children

From Southland:
Finding Technicolor

From iCarly:
Oh BURNED!!!
