I want one or two. But someone will probably have to poke me in the eye every day until I order it or else I'll forget again.

I can't wait for those conversations when I wear it out and some random person comes up to me all excited.

All three of my female housemates immediately called it "Max's vagina shirt"

The package showed up today. Fits ok, sup made no comments about it looking like a vagina so all is well.

I had 2 close Insta friends who were desperate for the shirt. I said I'd send 'em your way if you re-ran it.

Sup actually recognised it as BB not a VJ, despite not being super into bikes.
In other news I wore one while riding sugino nerd cracks (with sugino crap BB) and they came loose*.
Coincidence,i think not.

Second Run of T-Shirts questions:

This will 90% happen. No reason not to IMO.

1) Should I switch to American Apparel or some equivalent that has more typical sizing (if available, my understanding is AA is tougher to come by)?
2) Does anyone care about the level of sustainability in the t-shirt choice, if that means limiting color or size options?
2) Should I limit color choices more?
3) Should there be a new or different ink or shirt colors offered?
4) I'm fine with friends and friends-of-friends being pointed to the shirt buy, unless there are strong objections.
5) Any design changes you'd like to see? (might not do these even if they are good as it would mean extra delay)
6) Are any potential buyers out there trying to hit a Christmas delivery time?
7) Was price too high for anyone who really wanted one? I could possibly change t-shirt choice or other options to reduce cost a couple of dollars, maybe.

Thanks.

1) AA is still skeevy. I like 100% cotton shirts that are thick, but who the fuck makes these?
2) No
2a) if it makes it cheaper, yes, but still have at least one TAF option
3) this will probably happen organically from the t-shirt choice
4) sell all the shits
5) the little flag thing in the bottom maybe should be something funny. Edited to add: What if instead of LIV it said TARCK?!?!?
6) LOL
7) The price with shipping and tax was more than I wanted to pay but then it's 2017 and I didn't ship it to OZ so fuck it.

They got bought out, and I would tell you to wait until you get home to look at their site.

Jimmy you should probably get a larger batch printed locally instead of through an on-demand service

you've already proved the idea, and it should lower your cost enough that you can make some decent monies off of this

set up a bigcartel or whatever, get it on the radavist/instagram/etc, and become a thousandaire

AA was sold to Gildan, the US facilities are closed, and all future American Apparel will be made in China. It's just a name, now.

Nah I like the LIV and I wouldn't want specific tarck references. Maybe hide tarckbear's traschan somewhere in the graphics.
