It's not that it's a can't, but shareholders demand more profits -- and that comes at the expense of the workers.
As a side note, they're not made in Texas, but North Carolina is still in the USA:

Years of vanity sizing has messed up size labels for both genders. Even as a guy, I have clothing that range from S to XL, but they fit the same.
A few years back, there were just as many complaints about being sent "a men's shirt" for the standard women's shirt because of its looser cut.

What randoms? As most shirts are printed to order now, randoms are and will be few and far in between.

I can't deny that it's a huge jump for folks who buy the standard shirts, though. Currently, a daily + two plus sales + shipping is $28. A jump up to $10 each + shipping makes it $35 -- still very reasonable IMHO. With the flat pricing, it's $45 -- a 60% increase.
