10:39 pm - Why must all the best online stores be overseas?
*looks at last post*

Huh. You lot weren't a real lot of help at all. I guess the anonymous icons will have to remain anonymous.

Anyhow, onto other matters: I has come to my attention that Threadless, home of nifty T-shirt designs has a sale on.

There's a couple of T-shirts I am interested in getting, but since it's a US company, postage to here in Australia is kind-of pricey for just a T-shirt.

So I had a chat with fa11ing_away and decided I might as well run a group order.

So, if you are one of my Melbourne friends and want a Threadless t-shirt, let me know.

Drop a comment with the link to the pattern(s) you want, and the size you want it in. Only do this if you definitely want something - let me know if you are still deciding. If you want to know how the prices work out in US Dollars, I found this site helpful.

I want to take advantage of the sale, so details of the shirts you want need to be ASAP (as in the order will go in Monday, Australian time).

Also, all prices are in US Dollars, and you will need to pay me back.

But yeah, it looks like fa11ing_away and me will both be getting stuff, so you won't be charged for postage, just what you order. And there are a lot of fabulous patterns.

So let me know, guys!

ETA: The Threadless Size Chart may come in handy.

I've been constantly getting Threadless newsletters for their $5 sale but been iffy about shipping.

I would like the following:
http://www.threadless.com/product/1134/Interloper_From_Beyond_The_Heavens
http://www.threadless.com/product/395/Best_Mime_Ever
http://www.threadless.com/product/1362/21st_Century_Pirate
http://www.threadless.com/product/1407/Keeping_It_Simple

:D

Oh and size L preferred, but if you can't get L's I fit into M's as well.

Yeah sure, that's fair. Fingers crossed for good exchange rates on Monday.

Well, right now L is still available for all, and hopefully that won't change in the next two days.

And that would be around $30 AU. I'll give you a precise quote when I put the order in in case the exchange rates go mental or something.

Seriously? That's about $110 worth of t-shirts. Admittedly very nifty t-shirts...

(Are you sure about the XL? US sizes aren't the same as Aus ones.)

I didn't mean to make you not buy things!

That's about $80 Australian, then.

Exact prices when I make the order, so I can check the exchange rate then.

Duuuude... you are waaaaay skinnier than me and I can fit into M and L shirts... as in, I own two Threadless shirts marked M and L. You do not need XL. L at the most, but I think M would probably be good for you.

Argh! Oh the peer pressure!
I shall yield to those with Knowledge, and change my order to M if they're available :P

Just checking, and they're all available in M, except "Search and Rescue", which is only in XL or XS for ladies.

Aw man, the "hot grill on grill action" one I loved is actually snorgtees. Still count me in for threadless though! Will comment with my order tonight. Do you know if we can order stuff from their sister sites in the one order? Also with sizing, if I'm around a 14 australian do you think that's an M on their sites? Oh well I guess I'm around the same size as connie and if she fits an m so can I :)

Get an L. I have an M and it's a tiny bit tight on me.

Actually, I was thinking I'd prefer it quite fitted, so will prolly go for an M anyway. Will check out that sizing chart you linked to :)

Both sizes look quite fitted on me since the material is quite stretchy. The L handles my bust line better though.

Maybe you should link to this size guide instead?
