can comment on T-shirts [In reply to] Can't Post

Just based on my experience ordering the DOS limited edition Smaug T-shirt and the "gold" Thorin/Bilbo design T-shirts (which I liked enough to order 3, but still...). My opinion on the T-shirts only - good, but not great (keeping in mind last year I got 2 heavyweight cotton Ts at CVS for $10). 1) The T-shirts themselves seem "ordinary" - not xtra beefy cotton or anything - not super thin but not super thick. 2) The printing was well done, but very muted compared to what you see on screen - maybe because printed on black? Ended up liking the effect, but expected brighter colors. Will wash carefully and the fit was very true to size, so if you want a loose fit go up a size. Shipping was good and fast.

Based on that experience, if I were going to buy this hoodie (which is very nice) I'd still wait for a sale, myself. I'd love the hoodie but to me that is high in price even w. machine embroidery - because I'd want t know the sweatshirt itself is top quality and the embroidery perfect. Hope this helps a bit!

That's way too expensive for a hoodie. I like the Gandalf one as well, but am holding out.
