  1. Wow that was odd. I just wrote an very long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyway, just wanted to say excellent blog!

  2. Aw, this was a very nice post. Finding the time and actual effort to generate a really good article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and don’t manage to get nearly anything done.

  3. 248900 65936I need to have to admit that that is one fantastic insight. It surely gives a company the opportunity to have in about the ground floor and really take part in making a thing special and tailored to their needs. 667862

  4. JoLa^Shirt looks like advertised photo with same cut and large white decal. The size I ordered is a perfect fit. The only thing I don’t like is the quality of the t-shirt. It is neatly sewn&#44 but the shirt is very thin. This shirt is made with low thread-count and probably will not last or hold up very long. It’s a cute gift&#44 but I would not purchase this low quality shirt again.~3|nicholasgiovinco^Got this for my wife’s 30th and she loved it.~5|J R^Daughter loved it for her 30th birthday!~5|Amazon Customer^I wanted to wear this shirt on my birthday but the guy was terrible. It was way too big and the cut of the shirt was different than what is pictured. I’m sending it back.~3|Maleka^love it~5|Billy D^Good product. Good Price.~5|Amazon Customer^Love it!~5|ZANN^VERY pleased w/tee-amazingly fast ship! Love the color-got lots of attention @ Trump Rally! Recommend this product & this company~5|regina lawson^for 9 bucks its a t-shirt… It did fit as expected. It arrived on time.~5|robie^Maga~5|Darrell Danielson^I guess I need to drop a few pounds.~4|Judy Mills^lots of fun with this~5|DarciS^Love this shirt. Great quality. Fits great and gets the point across that I support Trump!!! I was surprised at the quality based off the price. I’m really happy with this purchase.The font was just as it was supposed to be and I have no complaints. It washed well and fit well.~5|KB^Awesome~5|Phil Roppo-platinum Home Contractors^Fits perfect and soft! Make America great again!~5|

  5. Marshall^Just like everyone&#44 I was looking for a quality Captain’s Hat that I could wear with pride. Upon receiving this “hat” it was not as pictured and certainly not worth any amount of money or time spent ordering it. My complaint is that the cloth white portion of the hat was so wrinkled and pressed against the emblem’s plastic backing&#44 that there was no way to make it look right. What threw me off was the picture and price. I mistakenly thought I was buying something better than those other $10 or less caps. Obviously I was wrong. Buyer beware.~3|Robert Mandeville^You have to give it a chance. When you put it on it looks pretty good. It’s not a white marine corp dress hat&#44 and you did not order a white marine corp dress hat. This thing does the job.~4|Jill Lindsay^Perfect for our end of the year Nautical themed party. Myself and the other parent chaperones wore them. I kept mine in my Halloween box for possible future use…..~4|Paul L. Doherty^I am an old sea dog and have been looking for a quality Captain’s Hat for years. I took a shot on this one&#44 and it is indeed a winner! It is well constructed and the brim is substantial…not a cheap costume&#44 one use throw away. It should last a long time if properly cared for. I liked the white so much&#44 I ordered one in navy&#44 of similar construct.~5|jmik^Arrived extremely fast and in great shape. Wasn’t folded or damaged like some have said; packed in an adequately sized box in a plastic wrap. The patch is a little crooked&#44 but come on… if you wear this thing with the intention of being serious&#44 a perfectly straight patch isn’t going to be what’s ruining your game. This hat is freakin’ great and I can’t wait to sail the seas of women.~5|Molly F^Bought this for my bachelorette party (we went on a cruise). I wore it around the ship with a veil attached. I got so many compliments.~5|herby^bought it for a gift. she has lots of hair and liked the hat~5|Amazon fan^This is a great cap for a first-time skipper of his own little fishing boat. Although the one we got does not have the trim on the brim&#44 as this one shows.~4|robo07^I was very pleased with the rapid delivery and the quality of the product was much better than expected. the price was reasonable and as it was a joke gift&#44 I was even more pleased with the item&#44 it looked much more expensive that the price paid.~5|Thomas C. Evans^I was most pleasantly surprised by the quality of this hat. It is perfect for my needs and I would recommend it if you need one.~5|

  6. R.^The Primus shirt that I purchased came from the seller ‘Priam&#44′ which was the only option available when I had purchased it. Given that it had good reviews&#44 I thought it would be just fine. It took over 3 weeks to be delivered and when I got the package&#44 I saw that it came from China… which is fine&#44 but I was unaware of that. The picture looks like an average style band tee&#44 right? Plus the description says cotton. However&#44 I received some weird fake satin&#44 polyester shirt (like a tapestry or tablecloth material) with no tags and a ridiculously blurry image – seriously? I requested a refund already&#44 but I was really excited and disappointed by this awful shirt.Moral of the story: double check the source/seller that you purchase from because now the seller for this shirt is someone else&#44 not the one that I originally purchased from.*attached are photos&#44 flash is on to show odd material and blurry image~3|Amazon Customer^Really love this shirt! PRIMUS SUCKS!~5|Amazon Customer^This shirt is well made&#44 nice material not too elastic. Has a nice fit too it&#44 it’s alittle on the slim and tight size so if you’re looking for a baggy shirt you man want to go a size up or find a different one.~5|Naut^Not sure what it is&#44 but it seems to fit a little strange around the torso. Seems to be just me&#44 so eh. Print is nice though&#44 thick cotton.~4|Drumhead00^Fits like it should but I know as soon as I throw it in the dryer it’ll shrink a lot unfortunatel .~4|Genevieve Shermn^The shirt is a good quality and it fits just as expected. The design looks good and it’s super comfortable.~5|TheCasshole^I loved it. It’s good quality material. Not that annoying cheap stuff that gets holes in it too easily.~5|Gunslingerfire^Ain’t nothin’ quite like sittin’ round the house&#44 sippin’ on them cans of swine. Kansas wine?~5|Amazon Customer^Excellent!~5|Amazon Customer^Bought this for an 11 year old boy. Kinda small for a grown man.~4|

  7. Tony Maglaras^My original order was for a 100% cotton shirt&#44 XXL. I received a blended shirt in the wrong size. The quality of the shirt in very low and the logo is cheap as well. Will be returning this shirt and ordering from the LSU website. Don’t waste your money on this shirt! Geaux Tigers!~3|Kevin^Fast shipping&#44 item as described&#44 very pleased!~5|Lilangelgirlanm^Perfect fit! I has been washed at least 5 times now and has not faded or cracked. Very impressed with the quality and how easy to care for it is. Will buy again.~5|tga002^Cheaply made. Cheap screen print. Very late arrival.~3|Amazon Queen^Shirt came apart at the collar in the first wash. Returned.~3|Rachel R.^Good quality shirt~5|Darren Chaney^This was a gift for my wife&#44 it is a very nice shirt and is well made. Will buy again.~4|Linda B. Wright^Love the shirt&#44 plus I love LSU~5|Amazon Customer^The colors were not bright like the picture. The purple and yellow shades were very dull and did not meet my expectations.~3|M. Gullick^Fine T-shirt.~4|

  8. I must show some thanks to the writer for rescuing me from such a circumstance. As a result of searching throughout the search engines and seeing opinions which are not pleasant, I thought my life was over. Existing devoid of the approaches to the difficulties you’ve solved as a result of your main short post is a critical case, as well as ones which might have adversely affected my entire career if I had not discovered your site. Your actual mastery and kindness in maneuvering every aspect was helpful. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I had not encountered such a stuff like this. I can also at this time relish my future. Thanks for your time very much for your skilled and amazing guide. I will not think twice to suggest your web sites to any individual who should have direction about this problem.

  12. Andrea Nelson^Not really what I thought I was ordering. I expected a higher quality image based on the picture&#44 but it looks like someone took a low res version of the graphic and blew it up to fit on the shirt (hard to see this unless it’s in person&#44 even my photo doesn’t demonstrate this well). Shirt’s made of some kind of shiny polyester. Not going to bother returning it&#44 too much of a hassle&#44 probably just straight to Goodwill. It’s not terrible&#44 just not what I expected.~3|Chelsea Hannah^I’m sort of embarrassed to wear this in public. The design is super pixelated.~3|Trisha Rueff^Really cheap quality&#44 not at all what I was expecting. Super disappointed with this purchase.~3|CaD^Exactly what I expected. Love it !!!~5|aquadaffodil^Smaller then expected around the bottom of the shirt.~4|Julie Hess^Perfect!~5|Amazon Customer^Awesome.~5|Eileen Fobert^Great shirt!~5|Zancudo^Good quality~4|Edmond D. Sherrod^Great t-shirt&#44 fitted as expected.~5|

  14. Krystal Pyatt^This screen print is poorly done and had no quality check before reaching me. Plus&#44 the stitching is coming out&#44 and this is out of the package without wear. I reached out to the seller to tell them the print is pixelated and unacceptable and the stitching is off around the neck. They told me I could have $3 for my troubles. Then they bumped it to $6 when I said that was actually insulting.~3|Ed Donovan^It took forever to get this shirt. The material it was made from was different than what was advertised and it was a small large.~4|Barb T.^Got it for my rapidly growing 13 year old. I actually got 2 accidentally and he loves them both. He’s wearing one right now and it’s been about a year.~5|R. Traum^Nice big logo. We’ll see how it holds up after several washings.~4|LEFA^Excellent for small chores: mown the lawn&#44 groceries shopping&#44 barbecuing&#44 etc. Light fabric&#44 ideal for summer&#44 but looks good quality.~5|ANN^Great product&#44 fast delivery-thanks!~5|Paulette A.^Good quality&#44 very satisfied~5|Amazon Customer^Nice colors~5|

  15. griffinshoney^My son is absolutely in love with this sweatshirt. Nice quality and the graphic is done really well.~5|J. Walters^Smaller than expected and logo is not of the best quality~3|Deborah Norman^Very nice hoodie.~5|deb shriver^It was great looks and feels just like the picture~5|Lisa Carlson^Fits perfect – love it~5|Amazon Customer^Grandson picked this out for Christmas. He will love it.~5|W. Gant^My son loves this hoodie. Fabric quality is good.~5|Blaze^Fit was good cloth is a little thin. Perfect if you expect a light weight jacket.~5|
