TC this is why I didn't end up buying one. Would buy a silkscreen print on nice paper though.

Wore it at work yesterday. Customer, mid 50's man, came up to the shop door and rang the bell, and I let him know I'd be right over. Come around the corner and...

Customer: Can I get.....(stares at my shirt for a good few seconds in silence).......That shirt is awesome! It's like the Lady of Gaudalupe but a square taper. So cool.
Me: Yeah, so what did you need?
Customer: I need an Ultegra 11s chain but now I need that shirt.

^ best!

I'm excited for mine to arrive, but hoping the enormous dimensions given are true, otherwise it's going to be a tight fit.

I did. The lady was pulled from the web and had some work done to get to the final form. The BB is straight from Shimano TechDocs, but also with a number of adjustments so it looked good and would print OK.

Mine seems true to stated measurements. I normally wear an XL but based on measurements ordered the L and it fits fine.

Had to make some changes from the original (below). I figured if printed like below it would have been too much white ink and resulted in what I have heard called a "bulletproof" (i.e. one big slab of ink covering the graphic area).
Also I wanted to keep the design static, but have multiple ink/t-shirt color options all still look OK.

edit: this version could look good as black ink on white sticker, or black/clear to place over the top of reflective tape or mudflap.

Looks like you probably put more thought into the design than a whole bunch of companies put into their for-profit stuff. Looking forward to getting mine!

BTW who is the person holding the LIV flag at the bottom? Tarckbear taking the shape of a faceless lady? Anita? I feel like there is hole in the mythology that needs to be filled in. Or I'm uneducated/failing the rorschach test.

Wore this to the group ride last night, within 10 seconds I was getting compliments on it. One guy actually asked me if I could ask Jimmy for permission for him to get it tattooed on his leg (!!!) He also inquired about buying a shirt if there's a second run.

Jimmy should take the money and run. It's too small-potatoes for Shimano to ever notice, but if you got featured on Prolz or something, you might be able to remodel your kitchen.

You're wildly optimistic either about how many shirts he'd sell or how much it costs to remodel a kitchen

I could see it selling a couple thousand if it gets picked up on a spencer blog or something. Better if it stays mostly tarck only tho.

My phone camera has trouble with the hi-viz, the ink is actually clear and crisp. I also ordered a classic black/white.

I am flattered you all like the design so much, it was fun to make and now fun to wear.

RE: another run of shirts. This is totally possible and in theory easier/quicker to set up now that the company has everything. I'd prefer to wait at least until everyone from this order has them in hand to be sure there are no issues. Can I get a rough show of hands or PMs? I think there are at least 4 people who want another one.

I personally will not be ordering more, because I have two already, but I know of at least one guy (probably more) in DEN that saw and want them. So at least 2 more for this neck of the woods.
