Slackware apparel - request for information


To whom it concerns - please add information about fabric type to the items listed in the Slackware store. I can't wear polyester clothing; I can only wear cotton and wool. I'd like to know if these items are cotton before buying.

Thank you.

Same on the standard black tee I just bought. 100% preshrunk cotton. It's actually probably the best quality tee shirt(s) -I ordered two- that I own. Definitely my favorite.

Nice. I also own two black Slackware T shirts. I really like the mayan shirt. Ordering one right now.

I have two polo shirts. They are made by Lands End and the label says 100% cotton.

I did get them several years ago, but, hey! it's Slackware. Probably hasn't changed unless something better than cotton came along.

Edit: They now have polo shirts with pockets! I just ordered one (and a 14.0 teeshirt).

Thanks everybody. I am interested in the polo shirts. Perhaps this information could be added to the item description? More specific chest sizes might be helpful as well: I'm not sure about elsewhere in the world but I do think European and US sizes are measured differently.

Thanks again.

Does anyone know what the hyphenated sizes on the shirts correspond to? Are they approximations of width?
