These cost 15 dollars each, so it's like 1 BTC at current price. Half of the profit goes back to Bitcoin Weekly to support its mission in creating fabulous magazine. You will be able to buy it at http://squarewear.biz

So... Will you buy this shirt?

What is the squirrel's name? Where does he live? What's his favorite meal?
Is he a physically a real squirrel, or made up (like bitcoins)?
Who are his pals? I bet his name's Sven. He's probably really popular at parties.

I think the way the poll is worded is going to guarantee a landslide victory for the no's.  Kiba, maybe you could change it to a simple "do you like this design?".  Or, if we want to really complicate things, "If you felt like supporting Bitcoinweekly.com and were sort of in the market for a t-shirt, would you consider purchasing this one?". :)

Wow.  I love this shirt, it's adorable!  Also your comics are hilarious. Stuff like this makes me feel like Bitcoins are really taking off as a community.  

Shameless plug: Have you considered selling it on Bitcoin Harbor as well?  We'd love to have it up on our site: http://bitcoinharbor.com (http://bitcoinharbor.com).

That's nice and all, but will somebody buy a t-shirt?

Bitcoin Weekly's core competency is not selling t-shirt. Ask squarewear.biz instead.

To be 100% honest, I went to go buy a shirt.  I put it in my cart.  I was all geared up to buy one at 1.04 BTC.  The I saw the 0.3 BTC shipping was additional and I left.

Not sure why I thought 1.04 was payable and 1.34 was not, but that's what I thought.  Probably not totally rational, but that's what happened.

If you shop around, at both bitcoin t-shirt businesses and traditional currency businesses, I think you'll find that $15 for a shirt plus $5 shipping is a very competitive price.  However, you admitted it was more of a gut reaction than a careful market comparison.  I'm sorry it wasn't clear from the site that shipping was extra.

You'll just have to wait until Monday to see.  You can sign up for the newsletter on SquareWear and get an early peek at the shirts (plus an occasional coupon code).
