"Let's be bad guys!" QMx offers Jayne shirt replica. After a fair bit of work QMx has managed to duplicate Jayne's "Troublemaker" shirt, seen in Serenity. For one thing, the original type of shirt isn't made any more... You'll be proud to rob banks in it.

Nice. But "only" $ 26,95 ? For a T-Shirt ? Did the word only suddenly get a new meaning ? With international shipping costs added it will probably be at least $ 40.

I'll probably break down and buy it once it's available through PREVIEWS. That should at least save me from paying shipping and import duties. And my comic shop has a fair exchange rate.

Argh, why does the shirt have to look this good ?
Haven't talked to them about it, but I'm guessing the price is due to them having to recreate the shirt (rather than grabbing whatever cheap blanks Haynes has available) and the fact that the design goes all over instead of just the usual square spot on the front.
Any idea what the sizes actually relate too?!
Hi all - just wanted to share what I know about this project (I didn't work on it, so I don't have a dog in this fight).

I do think the price is pretty good considering what they did to get them screen-accurate (custom dying and cutting to match the original), and having done tees I believe it's more expensive to print outside the regular front silkscreen area. (And believe it or not, I think it's cheaper than some of the bootlegs I've seen).

I'm just glad they did it in big enough sizes for us...uh...roundish-americans to wear.

I imagine getting the "copyrights" or whatever cost a fair bit too, so they could use the design.
I was a little curious what they meant by the idea that ringer tees as a whole ceased to exist ,but I had no idea that they managed to source it to the exact brand that made that specific one. How/when was that discovered?

I can't help but think of how many nerd voices cried out in pain and were suddenly silenced when we finally found out that the fabric pattern used for David Tennant's suit in Doctor Who came from The Gap.
Oh, thanks. I just spent my whole allowance for two months on it. I've been trying and failing to replicate that shirt for a couple of years now. I'm so happy. But now I can't afford anything else for a while.
This is way shiny.
