They always sell the shirts for more than one day. Any shirt is available at least until the next "Day of Reckoning" (aka Monday), and additionally if it was popular then it will be sold for at least another week.

I'm curious how you found that Alien shirt. Is there a back log of all their previous shirts that I don't know about, or is that just art from one of the Derbies that hasn't been made into a shirt yet?

EDIT: 2 seconds after posting this, I found the list. This will probably be depressing because I'll find shirts I like but can't buy :(

I find their shirts to be a bit longer than my other shirts, but I'm getting use to the extra length. I'm tempted to try a size smaller, but the shoulders already seem tight on what I currently get.

Awesome to hear. I'm 6'4" and shirts just aren't fun to wear when they're not tall sized. I figured I'd take a chance since it was only ten bucks, but if it fits well that'd be a stellar bonus.

I'm 6'3" as well. Why are the 3 people on the forum with the most posts the same height?

When people ask you your height and you tell them, do they say, "There's no way," as if they know more about your height and body than you do? "You've got to be 6'10" at least."

I tell them and they're like "Really?! Thats it? I thought you were way taller than that"

Isn't it awesome being tall though? Being able to reach stuff others cant and see over everyones heads is pretty nice.

That's a very optimistic view of things. That of course means, I'm constantly being asked to reach for things other's can't. It also means I can't walk down a city street without having to constantly dodge low-hanging branches. :cry:

Got my shirt. It's more amazing than I ever could have imagined. I didn't realize when I got it, but it was designed by a dude from Milwaukee. Gonna wear it to Summerfest tonight at Passion Pit on the off chance that it'll be recognized.

How's the length? I was looking at the specs of the Woot shirts and the length was nearly identical to Jinx shirts, which I find to be a little too short for me.

Eh, it's fine. I'd actually prefer a little more give in the shoulder/sleeve area to be perfectly honest.

They're all on sale for the next 30 mins as part of today's Woot-Off. Now's the time to buy!

Just a reminder - woot shirts *always* shrink.

That sucks, if I'd known that I woulda got a size bigger. I guess I'll wash it in cold water.

I should mention that (even though I don't expect more for $10) but it's clearly a cheap ass shirt. Flimsy fabric, and after only a day of wearing it, the collar is starting to curl, which is one of the most annoying things about cheap t-shirts. I definitely won't be buying more shirts from these dudes, but I'm still happy with the image. You'd think they would take some of their hall of fame designs and put them on higher quality shirt for more money. I'd pay an extra ten bucks for my Lincoln print on a sturdier shirt.

That's why I always make fun of my friends who get Woot shirts and personally stick with Threadless. American Apparel might have a shady owner, but their shirts are awesome.

Get Threadless on the horn and tell them to run a shirt with Honest Abe strangling the ebbing life out of a trio of big ass motherfucking bears and I'm all over it. I love the idea of woot, and I understand why they have to make the shirts so cheaply, but it doesn't make for the best wearing. At least the lighter, cheaper fabric feels better in the summer time. Better quality t-shirts are always denser and heavier to wear.
