A Moment in Sucking Less: Threadless Has Hoodies

Outright praise on The Consumerist is rare, but we’ve had nothing but excellent experiences with Threadless (ignoring the slight delay in their normally expeditious shipping during the Christmas rush). So consider this an exceptional free bit of shillery, on the occasion of their announcement that they will now be selling, in addition to their trademark t-shirts, hoodies.

Sadly, one of the huge advantages of Threadless is their low prices—the frequent $10 t-shirt sales are sublime—so we’ll probably wait until the prices drop a bit. We know that hoodies cost more than t-shirts to produce, but $40 is still too rich for our blood. We wait anxiously for the next sale, when we expect the price of remaindered hoodies to drop to $20.

(Of course, lest it go without saying, in typical Consumerist spirit, if you’ve had a problem with Threadless, please let us know via email or comments.)

    I have nothing but love for Threadless. The annual holiday sale which drops all shirts to $10 is a boon to my gift-giving, and the shirts are the highest quality ones I own next to my beloved Standard American. And no tags!

    In short, Threadless gets it. They’re an efficient and professional site with a thriving community of talented people, and it’s nice to see them branching out. $40 is too much, I agree, but at least it won’t take you 6 months to get your product. I’m glowering at you, Neighborhoodies.

    Here’s one major problem: they don’t ship to Hungary anymore. Iraq is fine, Afghanistan is fine, they even ship your stuff to Somalia, which is not even a real country. But not Hungary, no. I can partly understand why: guessing from all the horror stories of packages lost and/or stolen by the Hungarian postal service, they probably just gave up.

    Still, I’m running out of American and Somali friends to pick my shirts up and that worries me.

    Guys, if you’re out there reading this: please reconsider. Without Hungary, there would be no, uh, hydrogen bomb and no Rubik cube and stuff. We wouldn’t even have Consumerist without Hungary (whois consumerist.com to see what I mean).
