I bought one with the astronaut kicking the soccer ball (well two actually) and those are really really nice. Great quality and they fit right. I bought one of the newer hoodies with zipper and am waiting to receive it so no feedback on that style yet. Sorry. I'm expecting it this week though so I'll give you feedback if and when it gets here if you're interested.

Are we talking about the lightweight hoodies, or the medium weight fleece hoodies? The lightweight is an Alternative Apparel AA1970, the medium weight fleece are Gildan G185 or G186.

In any case, the registration issues are all Woot's. Post your pics and concerns in this thread.

I have the "Plan B" hoodie and love it. It's a pullover style. Works well. No complaints.

Thank you for the link, @narfcake. My primary concern isn't with the quality of the shirt/hoodie itself, but with the quality of the screen printing (off-center, stretched, etc.). I'll post some pics of my shirts on that thread. I understand the need for speed to keep costs down, but you have to have good quality if you want to sell your product...

@zuiquan: I'd be very interested to hear your opinion on the quality of the print on your pending shipment!

@drjing: No problem, I'll let you know as soon as I get it.

I got the lightweight. It fit fine and was comfortable.

And side +1 to woot support - they accidentally sent me a large instead of the medium I ordered, I let them know and they sent the medium, and let me keep the large! Though I'm wondering if that's some nefarious plot or foresight they have... I don't wanna get fatter again! The whole "maybe not now, but just in case in the future..." sort of thing.

What does "registration" mean in terms of a screenprinted shirt? I've been learning (largely thanks to @narfcake) and have discovered a whole universe of shirt-printing-errors that I never could have imagined, but this is a new term to me.

@neuropsychosocial: Registration is lining up the various colors so that the edges are crisp and they don't overlap one another. In the thread, a good example when it's off is @arryielle's copy of UN3.

It's especially important in color transitions, like with this example, in which halftones were used to mimic gradients. FWIW, Woot did print that one quite well (on both my copies), so they are capable of doing a proper job.

I bought a couple of zip-up hoodies for my daughters' Christmas presents. My only complaint was that they seemed to run smaller than advertised.

Well, gosh. I was getting ready to order a couple of Monkey Games shirts when I found this thread. Guess I'll save my money.

@narfcake: Thanks, Narf! Bonus points for including links to illustrative pictures. Well, imaginary bonus points, since I have but one vote with which to upvote!

I picked up the Angry Day pullover and a Plan B (for a gift) and both looked fine.
