    I got my shirt this morning. I've been too hungover all day to actually open it up :laugh:

    Anyway I just had a look at it and it's very nice. The material is 90% combed cotton and 10% polyester, so it's not safe for wearing in the lab but good at fancy dress up dinners. Oddly enough it says it's made in "Downtown LA" instead of "on the backs of child laborers in Taiwan".

    Shipping wasn't particularly fast but I wasn't in a hurry. I ordered 1/29 and it got here 2/5.

    yes the american apparal shirts are made in the U.S. which is why they generally cost more.

    I just grabbed a nice TPU coffee mug to show my devotion to the community while at my office. I will show off some pics when it gets here in a week or so.

    The MailMan is pretty damn awesome for setting this up for all of us. :toast: to the MailMan! :D

    Yup. Most makers print/make their stuff in following nations.

    China
    Bangladesh
    Pakistan
    Vietnam
    Mexico
    Guatemala
    El Salvador
    Chile (very few)
    Dominican Republic (very few)


    Not that any of this matters. BUY! The stuff I am selling was created and printed in the US. The shirts themselves were manufactured G-d knows where.

    I believe international shipping is an option, so you can buy too!

    I live in Switzerland, and since that country isn't in the EU its treated somewhat special regarding shipping costs (= more expensive). But I was positively surprised by the shipping costs. Pretty cheap actually.

    I finally got my shirt today. Yeaaa. Soo can't wait to sport it around.
    It does feel heavy but the shirt isn't real thick. It may soften up after a few washes. We'll see.

    Yeah I found my shirt today in the mail :) Gonna post pics soon! It looks badass and feels pretty damn good.

    Also I'm proud to be the first Swiss human being ever to wear an official TPU piece of clothing :D

    Seems I suck at taking mirror pictures. Especially the lighting. But anyways you can see it.
    I love it :)
