Was rooting for this one. Excellent in all its details, plus perfect for the next time I work on a costuming crew.

Like Poe? Of course you do, you're here ; ) Try my new mystery novel:

I want to like this shirt but the grammatical error of Ross' shirt kills me. Maybe I don't get it.

I don't know if Travis is lurking tonight, but I'll reassure you that this is a tshirt, not a flag.

Where is the cat? I don't see a cat in the picture. Must be a misprint of some kind.

The Ross family would like to talk to the shirt creator and Woot about a lawsuit for the use of the name...

I don't know.

For all the complainers.
http://grammar.yourdictionary.com/punctuation/apostrophe-rules.html

Yes, even if the name ends in “s,” it is still correct to add an “‘s” to create the possessive form. It is also acceptable to add only an apostrophe to the end of singular nouns that end in “s” to make them possessive.



Either are acceptable.

I don't know.

And if you still think of Ross's as a mistake, look at it as being like a misprinted stamp or mis-struck coin. Someday it might become a collector's item. (And if you believe that, I have some ocean front property in Kansas to sell you.)

To add to the prior poster's information, we had begun using the possessive apostrophe in the ('s) form prior even to Ross's time, meaning that this would not have been incorrect then, either.

Here is a related passage from a grammarian's book, circa 1772:

You don't need the "S" at the end. "Ross' " is correct.

Wrong. How would Ross' even be pronounced? It is absolutely correct on the shirt. No different than if the name were Les or Charles. (Please tell me you would not write "Charles' wife.")

last years 'controversy' over this issue went on for pages and pages. so stupid. it is a T-SHIRT.. not the flag.. but some people love to have their own facts that they assume are truth..

Can I interrupt the Great Apostrophe Controversy to ask a question about the product? What's the difference between the Anvil and American Apparel versions?

tsk tsk on all you critics. Give credit when it's deserved, and it's deserved here.

Congrats SkiRoc on a great idea and great design!

The differences are many, but I will list the top few:

American Apparel are made in the USA.
Anvil are made in 2nd/3rd world countries. Some of those factories are certified to not be sweatshops, but some are not.

American Apparel sizes run small, the ladies sizing, in particular, runs closer to Junior's sizing than Women's.
Anvil sizing for ladies shirts run larger than average, and they have a very curvy cut - some love it, some hate it.

The sizing charts for both are available on the sale page.

American Apparels are soft, and tend not to shrink too much.

Anvils shrink - a lot, almost all of it in length.

AA neck-holes are smallish and some find them constricting.
Anvil neck holes are comically large and some find them baggy.

Hope this helped.

While either version is technically correct, this Ross only recognizes Ross' because Ross's is just silly.

Grammar police says: Either IS acceptable.

The word "either" is singular.

One additional question about differences in the two blank manufacturers - Which one has seams down the sides? They are terribly itchy... I prefer no side-seams.

Thanks for posting all that helpful info!

I debated over is and are for a while, and that should tell you why I looked up what the correct usage is.
