Threadless, I have an idea for expanding your product line.
(I'll bump this when people are actually around)
So...if you check my account, there is a severe drop off in like the past couple of years. I bought a ton of shirts from 2007-2009/2010 or so and then just stopped. There are a couple reasons for this. First - I have too many shirts and I don't throw shirts out till they are holey and pit stained...sort of like a dude. Secondly, blah blah blah bitch bitch shirt quality. Have the shirts been all over the place in terms of size and thinness and whatever? Absolutely.
But beyond that, I realize that ALL of my Threadless shirts...nay...all of my COTTON shirts tend to warp along the seams. I get those weird wrinkles at the seams of my sleeves - I'm sure many of you know what I'm talking about - and it just looks sloppy. But I've been wearing another type of shirt that stays perfect forever, unless you catch it on a rusty nail. It keeps its color and does not warp.
I'm talking about tech shirts, yo.
Tech shirts are the moisture wicking, compression, completely synthetic fiber shirts that athletes wear. Polyester is so not dead along with disco. That, mixed with nylon and other fibers make for an awesome variety of weaves and textures. A basic North Face tech shirt feels silky smooth against your skin, keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer and retails for like $25. It never warps or shrinks or loses its color. It's made to still work and look perfect long after we're all dead. And they're all boring as shit looking. If any of you have ever run races you know that the graphics look like absolute shit. This was the 10 miler race shirt I got this year.
Jesus Christ, Colleen, keep your personal deets off the internet.
Anyway, I'm tired of wearing either plain or atrocious tech shirts, and I never wear cotton anymore because it makes me feel like I'm slowly being choked all over my body by a weak old man when I wear it out in the summer. Capitalize on this gaping hole in the market - amazing looking tech shirts.
TL/DR: Print Threadless designs on runner's shirts, and I will start buying Threadless shirts again. No graphic designer prints on tech shirts. I just made you millions, people.
