SHIRT COLORS
We've compiled these shirt color swatches ourselves, since the ones we have available from the manufacturers are often way off. These swatches are a pretty close representation of shirt color, however the exact color you see will depend on your specific monitor and color settings. When in doubt, feel free to email us for a verbal description. PLEASE NOTE THAT DESIGNS ARE AVAILABLE ON THE 1 to 6 SHIRT COLOR CHOICES MENTIONED DIRECTLY UNDER THE IMAGE OF THAT DESIGN, not in the entire color selection shown on this swatch sheet.




CARE OF TIEDYES AND GARMENT-WASHED ITEMS
Please read if you've never owned a tiedyed or garment-washed (aka pigment-dyed, aka hand-dyed) item before.
We use only premium quality tiedyes and garment-washed tshirts. Tiedyed and garment-washed shirts WILL bleed a bit for the first few washings, so please be sure to wash them separately at first in cool or warm water, and then with bright colors, never with whites. Brighter and darker colors tend to bleed the most. Especially with garment-washed items, and especially before the first couple of washes, you should avoid spot washing or scrubbing a stain, or you could end up with a lighter area. Your best bet is to wash the entire garment before the stain sets, or try a spray-on brush-off spot lifter (we've had success with these but be sure to try out on a hidden area first, and be gentle while brushing off).


CLOTHING MEASUREMENTS
It's nearly impossible to find measurements for clothing online, but pretty difficult to shop without an idea of how the sizes run. For your convenience, we're providing you with an average range of measurements so you can measure a similar item you like the fit of, and compare--after you compare sizing on some of the items listed, you'll see why you don't want to just guess! The range was determined by taking measurements from a variety of brands that we carry--in most cases, the size falls about in the middle of the range.

(The majority of shirts nowadays are labeled 'preshrunk', however some brands are more so than others... if the exact size is very important to you, please ask when you email us your order if this is a brand that may shrink a bit so you can take that into account.)
