Summer of White Tees: The Last Possible Second
The ordering period for our group buy of Alternative Apparel tees ends today. Get your order in by 2PM Pacific, 5PM Eastern.
Put This On’s Summer of White Tees 2014
Since the first thaw, people have been emailing me about whether our annual group buy of Alternative Apparel t-shirts would return. Good news: it has!
Here’s the deal: AA’s t-shirts are among my favorites, but they’re a bit pricey at $24 each. Luckily, I have a wholesale account with Alternative (I use it to buy blank shirts for my podcast network), so once a year I make a huge group buy of t-shirts.
You pay $9.90 each, plus a flat $6 shipping charge per style, and we send you as many shirts as you want.
This year, we’re offering both white and heather grey, in both crew and v-necks. We ship only to the US (sorry). Here’s a size chart if you need it. These shirts are very soft and lighter weight - perfect for undershirts and warm weather, but less so for folks looking for something super-stout.
Again, it’s a group buy: we’ll take orders until Thursday the 3rd, then place our order with Alternative. That’ll go to our fulfillment center, and go out to you from there. The whole process takes roughly six weeks, and we don’t accept any returns. Too special of a deal.
The Summer of White Tees 2011: It’s ON!
Once again, we’re offering a special deal for readers of Put This On who want to refresh their supply of white tees for the summer. Thanks to my wholesale account at my favorite t-shirt vendor, we can get you a special deal on this wardrobe staple.
Here’s how it works: we’re doing a group buy of Alternative Apparel white t-shirts. We’re only offering V-Neck and Crew Neck in white (size chart here). Order as many as you want, shipping is a flat six bucks per style. The price is $9.90, less than half of retail.
There will be a ONE WEEK order period for the sale, and then we’ll put the order in with Alternative, who will ship us the shirts so we can ship them to you. Expect to receive your shirts in about SIX WEEKS. We’re not a retailer, this is a group buy, so they have to come to us first, then go out to you.
One note: if you’re international (including Canada), we will ship to you this time around, but please be sure to choose the “international” option when you chose your shirt style.
The Return of the Summer of White Tees
Since we ran our original “Summer of White Tees” last year, I’ve been getting about an email a day asking for it to return. I’ve finally caved.
Here’s how it works: we bulk-buy white t-shirts from Alternative Apparel. Then we sell them to you at less than half the retail price. This coming Monday, I’ll put up a purchase page. We’ll have crew necks and v-necks in white, and that’s it. Orders will only be open for ONE WEEK. Delivery will take 6-8 weeks, because they have to come to us before we can send them to you.
So, mark your calendars: Monday, it’s ON.
