Hey Tracy, do you know who the shirt manufacturer is?

For out-of-towners, how much should we tack on for shipping? Or is there a shipping option :)

@hackygolucky Regarding the manufacturer: Cool. I think we've all gotten low-quality, coarsely-cut shirts from events that we never wear. American Apparel's 2001 (unisex) and 2102 (women's) have trim cuts, soft fabric, come in a wide range of colors, and are made in California.

Canvas also makes a good shirt (Canvas is the men's brand; Bella is the brand for women's shirts by the same manufacturer); most of these are made in Pakistan. The Write the Docs conference shirts were made by Canvas. With a budget of $20 per shirt (or even $15 per shirt), we basically have all the choices available to us.

All else held equal, would prefer to support a company other than American Apparel due to their sexist advertising and questionable labor practices.

@thoward I'm not sure when I'll be in Portland next, although I'm sure it will be sometime this spring :) Maybe setting one aside would work better.

:+1: AA is wretched.

Damn their comfy well-fitting shirts!

AA 50/50s are hard to beat...amazing hand feel.

Laundry day surfaced some knowledge: District Made and Next Level are two other brands that feel similar to AA 50/50s. No idea if they're an improvement over AA on the fronts @jden mentions, however.
