I need help with pricing out a design project. I'm a printmaker / illustrator with a growing Instagram / Etsy audience and have been asked to create a t-shirt design by a seemingly successful small business (from the research I've done!) More below the fold... [more inside]
I last bought tshirts from Threadless in 2011. The material of the tshirts was very thin and a bit too easily stretchable, unlike the more sturdy tshirts I've bought from places like ThinkGeek. I've actually grown to like the thinner tees (they work well in hot weather), but given the unexpected quality of the tshirts in my previous order, I'm wondering what the tshirts from Threadless are like now. Thick or thin? Sturdy? Are the prints done well? Thanks hive mind!

I can't believe I'm using a question for this, but... women of Metafilter, when you purchase a T-shirt how cognizant are you of how the design might interact with your chest? [more inside]
I would like to buy a tshirt from the Clinton store. However, they all seem to be unisex, which in my experience means "straight tube of fabric that strains at the bust and bunches at the hips." Have you bought one of these shirts? I am a curvy size 16 - maybe you are too! What size shirt should I buy?
Colby Keller is wearing a really great tshirt here, with a printed design of Greek red-figure vase painting. I want one. Can you help me track it down?

I have recently moved and I am looking for a better method of organizing my t-shirts. I have too many of them, and I would like to rotate through them rather than wear the same things every week. [more inside]
Is there a list of all the characters in the Threadless "Mini Pixels" shirt anywhere online? Google searching is not turning up anything, surprisingly. I can recognize a lot of (most?) of them, but definitely not all. You can zoom in on this image of it. I am thinking of giving it as a gift but wanted to satisfy my curiosity first! There must be a list somewhere...
I saw this T-Shirt on a 10-12 year old boy at a neighborhood parade last week. He was part of the parade, in a unit sponsored by a dive bar. Possibly relevant info: This is not a biker bar specifically but my town's one-percenter outlaw biker gang has had events there. [more inside]
Because of my relatively strong Google-Fu, my wife asked me to find and buy a "Black Lives Matter" T-shirt for her. So far, I haven't found any I think my wife would classify as "cute". Can anyone point me to any "cute" or well designed "Black Lives Matter" ladies t-shirts online?
but how does it work in theory? [more inside]

My cousin use to own a t-shirt from "Green Eggs and Hamlet". I have been trying to find the t-shirt online but sadly with no luck. The t-shirt is the one mentioned in this post but even though I know it may exist in Stratford Ontario I am no closer to finding. I picked the person who made the post but still waiting on a response. Thought I would try here to see if people have any ideas. Thanks!

Thirty years ago, I remember my dad buying bulk t-shirts from one of several companies advertised in the back of magazines. These shirts would have random company logos in random languages, and were clearly a way for t-shirt printers around the world to get rid of overstock. It was like a surprise box every time.

I want to make a custom t shirt (mainly as a gift). I want decent quality shirts with a simple print on the front. Very small batch, between 2-10. Any suggestions online or in SF? I want much better quality than cafe press or whatever.
Going back to work after maternity leave, but a size bigger so I have to get new clothes. I hate clothes shopping and I don't have time to browse the stores anyway. My work wardrobe staples are bootcut jeans and fitted jersey long-sleeve t-shirts with a nice-looking print. I got jeans but I'm missing the top part! [more inside]
MeFi, I want to flex my muscles! More specifically, I want a T-shirt that looks like a muscular male chest. Cartoon abs would be ideal but photorealistic abs will be okay too. I would like the shirt to be in color, have the printed abs be wide enough to cover my chest so it looks like I have a six pack rather than looking like a picture of abs, and be available in a men's/unisex small. Under $20 including shipping would be ideal too. This is the closest I can find to what I need but is too large, too expensive and I'd honestly prefer cartoony abs. Halp?

A large group of friends will be running a 5k in October. I'm wanting to get some custom team shirts designed for the group, but I don't want to have to fool with collecting money from everyone. So what I'm looking for is somewhere...
I can upload my design for the shirts.
I can send out a link to the participants and let everyone order on their own.
The shirts are not openly available to folks outside the group. (I understand that someone might be able to forward the group's link. I'm just not really wanting it available on the open marketplace.)
From what I'm seeing on sites like Cafepress or Spreadshirt, I can't limit who can buy or will I have to place the whole order myself. It is entirely possible that I'm missing something, though.
Decent quality is a plus as well.
Thanks in advance!!
I'm from Canada and I am attending a conference and need to select my t-shirt size from a supplier in Denmark. Does anyone know how a women's 2XL compares to a 3XL in Denmark - like what the bust and waist measurements are? Would these sizes be similar to a US/Canada 2XL and 3XL? Here is the polo t-shirt that we're getting. Thank you!!

Please help me, Mefi!!! I have been looking for the perfect t-shirt for years, with little success. I want those t-shirts I see all the other women wearing - soft, lightweight but not completely see-through, baggy but not boxy, loose but still flows nice on one's curves.

My husband really likes this t shirt and his birthday is in a few weeks. Problem: website is in Kanji (I think-?) and I can't see the 'Happy Birthday' one anywhere. It it can't be found online, do you know if the site has an actual physical shop anywhere? I have friends in Tokyo/Kyoto who might be able to send it over if it's available. HALP (and thank you!)
My favourite t-shirts are on their last legs, and the place where I bought them (Principles for Men) no longer exists. They're black, v-neck, with side seams and vents, and very much designed as outerwear. The fabric is heavy, perhaps even a little heavier than Hanes Beefy or Fruit of the Loom Heavyweight (6.1oz) and most store/fancy-brand shirts use much thinner cloth. Any suggestions? US sources as a first option, but ones in the UK are useful as well.

My current wardrobe consists of jeans and a Gap V-neck T. I am at the point where I need to replace my t-shirts (they are wearing out). Do I stick to the Gap shirts or is there something better out there for a similar or lower price? Some options I've found are Uniqlo (but they always seem to be sold out) or Everlane. Also, any sizing suggestions would be great too! I currently wear a large Gap shirt, but with Everlane it looks like I'd need to go up to an XL (I figured this by comparing chest size from Gap to Everlane). Is that correct?

Lands' End used to make what they called a heavyweight shirt. It was 100% cotton, tagless, fabric was a little coarse and it had a very satisfying weight. They also weren't too long and fit my somewhat-short torso well. They don't make it anymore! Do you know the shirts I'm talking about? Have you found a replacement?

I want to buy a shirt with a slogan on it, but no shirt with that slogan exists. Thus, I wish to cause its existence. Because my skills of an artist are meager, I don't want to do this myself on cafepress/spreadshirt/etc. Thus, I wish to ask YOU, metafilter, these questions: (a) where can I go or whom can I ask for my t-shirt-slogan-designing needs? (b) how much is this sort of thing likely to cost? (If too much, I'll just pass.)
