So does that mean the shirt of the day included S&H also?

On Teefury it's $9 for the shirt and $2 for shipping (up to qty of 3 I believe)

Shirt Woot uses American Apparel. Teefury's shirt are heavier closer to a Hanes starchy cotton.

How is the quality of the TeeFury shirts compared to Woot? The Woot shirts are pretty nice...

The american apparel shirts that woot uses usually do a little shrinking, whereas the teefury ones are a little more like your standard cotton graphic tshirt (kindof like the ones on Noisebot) that doesn't do much shrinking. I've only owned a teefury shirt long enough to wash it twice and it seems to hold up pretty well, feels good to me. That's just my opinion of course. The shirts I tend to avoid are the ones from 6 dollar shirts.com or whatever...but you can probably guess why they cost 6 bucks one you wear them once. Ha.

ah thanks for the explanation. ill make sure when i buy from woot, ill get large instead of medium.

i bought a medium size tee from tee fury to see how it will fit me. so from there on, i can see what size preference i know when i buy from them.

OMG.

I'm so sold on ALL three shirts today. The WOOT Vader and Star Trek one, the teefury one and of course riptapperal (no stars or video game shirt, but it's my saying a lot!)

As much as I love that teefury shirt, I'm going to pass. Watterson never licensed Calvin and Hobbes for anything, and I respect his work too much to enable spinoff merchandise, even if it is really great.

Really? I must be going straight to hell because even though I'm a huge Calvin and Hobbes fan AND I know Watterson doesn't like licensing I still didn't hesitate for a millisecond.

All I have to say is...www.6dollarshirts.com

Where else can you get a Power Glove shirt for $6? They also have some great shirts that reference Arrested Development.


I might do that if I were to get the 10 shirts for 50 bucks deal, which would prob not be hard since I liked most of what I saw.

I respect Watterson's stance on licensing, but this shirt is parody / respectful homage. I'll let it slide.

Speaking of video games, don't forget about the free Pac-Man GHost t-shirt (while supplies last) over at THink Geek when you spend $31 or more. I bought a Star Wars Lego set and a "Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock" shirt to get my "free" shirt... well worth it though. GLOWS IN THE DARK!

I really wanted the Rose the Retrogamer shirt from woot a while back. Is there any way to get my hands in one?

Yeah, Watterson ended up quite embittered (and a little eccentric) when it came to the run away piracy of his IP.

He was strongly anti-licensing ala Garfield, and the appropriation of his characters is one of the things that drove him out of the industry. C&H was his art, but it had been appropriated by the people in true viral fashion.

I tend to fall on the snooty side of these re-uses, and I wonder if C&H had come a decade later and been in full swing in the internet era if Watterson would still hold the same position.

Its sad, because I totally understand his viewpoint, both as the owner of the IP, and as someone who should have been making money from its appropriation. Capitalism supports patents and copyrights for a reason.
