    Does this mean I have to find out my t-shirt size, moreover in some American system? I really need to make Clothes.SE a thing to help me handle such challenges. – Wrzlprmft Dec 10 '15 at 21:33

    I hope you are also shipping to Switzerland, because I am unreasonably looking forward to this :) – xLeitix Dec 10 '15 at 22:12

    I second @Wrzlprmft; any chance of getting the t-shirt sizing as given by the manufacturer? – Moriarty Dec 11 '15 at 19:48

    I love the current top "related" entry: What to do about belligerent users? – S. Kolassa - Reinstate Monica Dec 11 '15 at 20:57

    Cool stuff! But no girls t-shirts? Also, what will you do with our personal data afterwards? – Cape Code Dec 12 '15 at 15:10

    “for having helped this site grow healthily 'till it reached graduation.” – Actually, when the site graduated, I had 172 reputation. – Wrzlprmft Dec 13 '15 at 6:50

    @AustinHenley: That’s not how you get that hat. – Wrzlprmft Dec 29 '15 at 10:35

    A minor complaint about the t-shirt design: the text reads only "academia", not "academia.stackexchange.com"; so it could be mistaken for a shirt recommending academia.edu, a quite controversial "academic social network". This association is a bit unfortunate. Please take this only as a suggestion for the future; I am not complaining about this welcome present; I thank you warmly for it. – Federico Poloni Jan 7 '16 at 16:33

    @FedericoPoloni: I'm not sure most people will connect the shirt with any website at all unless they recognize the logo. The first time I wore my Stack Exchange shirt in public, someone asked if it had something to do with Wall Street. :-) Hopefully people seeing you in your shirt will either already be familiar with this site or just assume you are really excited about higher education. – Jon Ericson Jan 7 '16 at 16:57

    @JonEricson I work in a university in Italy; the English word "academia" is not commonplace there, and I am afraid that most of my colleagues will associate it to the spam mail they got from academia.edu as their first thought. Anyway, I realize that it is probably too late to suggest a change of design. I will test if my prediction is accurate by wearing the t-shirt and seeing the reaction of my colleagues. :) – Federico Poloni Jan 7 '16 at 17:28
