The bottom hemline on mine started unraveling badly after its first or second wash. Mrs. S. did some trickery with her sewing machine to sort things out.

Stitching started coming out after the first wash and only got worse after the second :(

Anyone else having issues?

Understeer: You will hit the wall with the front end.
Oversteer: You will hit the wall with the rear end.
Horsepower: How hard you will hit the wall.
Torque: How far you will move the wall.

Mrs gnat gave me a long speech about how it really needs a special stitch (which she has the machine for, but it is a PITA to set up) to be done right and she doesn't have color matched thread. Pointing out that it's just an around the house shirt so "not unraveling" is the only important criteria didn't seem to change her perspective.

Given her eye roll when she first saw the tag line I suspect this is her passive aggressive approach to helping it have a short life... :lol:

I feel your pain. It took Mrs. S a REALLY log time to repair a seam on my F-Bomb t-shirt, but only a week or so to get around to the Outpost shirt.

Weird.

Technically the list is more about content than any specific order. The order has more to do with how I'm feeling at any given moment.

My shirts started coming apart as well. I'll start a new thread for new shirts in different colors soon. Is it easy to do polls here?
