Anyone else have quality problems with the "Japanese" shirt?
« on: January 22, 2010, 03:19:15 PM »
I put mine throught th wash once and the logo is all cracked and ruined. I have a feeling it's because there is so much "area" that's been screen-printed - the design's surface is huge.

Too bad, as it's my favourite (so far) of the Foetus designs.

Anyone else have problems with the artwork deteriorating?

It happened to me too, then I looked up on the store again and saw a warning about washing it inside out and letting it air dry.  I don't think that was there before...

As do I. I've washed the Russian shirt a few times and it's still in great condition, but the Jap shirt! I don't wanna "Wash it All Off"  :D

Same sob story over here as well.  My friends just think it's a "vintage" shirt now, heh.

Someone from the Foetus Shoppe contacted me via email today about sending a replacement Japanese shirt.  Color me impressed. 

From the inbox view, it looked like the email was from JG himself but it turned out to be from someone else.  That would've made my month, but it's still really cool that I'm getting a new shirt.

Just an update that I received a message from Hop Sing that a new shirt was being sent to me. And sure enough, four days later, there it was.

I offered to at least cover the cost to shipping, but they said no. I made a donation to the Red Cross, to "pay it forward".

I'm grateful for the simply amazing gesture. It just goes to reinforce JGT's respect for his fans.
