I love my Woot shirts! They are unique and I get a lot of complements on the designs.

Lately, though, I have been less and less inclined to add to my collection.

The quality of the shirt material and construction is very, very cheap. I have some of the original shirts and they are much better quality. They have stood up to many wearings and washings.

I have two shirts I bought in the last year that after just a couple of wearings and washings have split the seams in the arm areas. When I try to repair them, the material is so flimsy, it's hard to get enough material to sew up well. I've tried both brands of shirts and both are equally cheap.

I've also noticed the bottom hem is shorter and rolls up or deforms after 1 washing.

I would pay for better quality! Any hope for that? Anyone else feel the same?

Thank you for the feedback. I've passed it on to shirt.woot management.

The very original ones are manufactured by American Apparel -- all shirt.woot shirts up until 2012 are AA. Beyond the occasional hem that wasn't fully pressed, I have had very few issues with them, new or old.

From 2012 to 2014, Woot used custom blanks made by Anvil.

The current Anvil shirts have the really tight hem. Besides the cut and the shrinkage, those I have had the most issues with hems twisting/rolling and/or seams not holding up.

Could you post some pics?

I have some photos, but I am not a Snapchat or Instagram user, so I don't have a place to post them. Is there another way I can send those to you?

You can upload them to imgur.com pretty easily and send a link to those photos to customer service.

I've had problems with the seams coming apart, too. Also the print washing off. It's like the ink wasn't properly heat-sealed.

At least for Anvil, I've come to expect it already. This one is destined for the scissors.


As for the printing flaking off, it's probably an improper cure or misapplication of the pretreatment; I've had a couple bad ones myself. The majority has been fine, however, including ones that are NOT washed on cold and line dried.

Contact CS about those if you haven't yet.
