I think it has something to do with using "forbidden words" does it not? ;D

 Okay, I have placed an order, now I can complain...What no unisex sizing on the thong??? ??? No unisex pirate ribbed tanks? ??? Is PPG sexist? I don't like to jump to conclusions but...? Is there an explanation for PPG's oversight in this matter?

PS: LizDiggory should get a free baby t-shirt.

I admit I don't hit all the lingerie shops but the concept of a "unisex thong" is new to me. :)

Um. We made a buncha products based on the most likely looking combinations, the items available to us from Cafepress, and all the logos Bons could make while she was neglecting things like the rest of her life. :) If anyone has a specific suggestion that Cafepress offers, we'll add it. Some new products are coming soon... including a very limited-edition-don't-blink-or-you'll-miss-it boxer design.

 A classic combo with either boxers or thongs would be the spaghetti strap tank or a ribbed tank. In, of course, unisex sizing. ;)

 Outside of actually placing an order, and the free baby t-shirt, I was not being totally serious. Kudos to Bons and the rest of you for the selection offered. It is a fun idea and hopefully it will work out well.

 In the future I might the suggest using some of the pithier comments of the modders and mods' characters for slogans. I realize you could not use Bioware quotes but I know there a thousands of funny/ witty quotes from in-mod, in-forum, in fanfiction and irc. Perhaps these quotes would be too insider but I think they could be quite popular and fun. Just a tee with <charname> or If ~ Then, etc. could be very funny.

 Best of luck with whole endeavor. :)

That is a good idea. The trick is that we're limited to only doing one item of each product type until and unless we start paying for the store, which won't happen unless sales justify it. (Not that your patronage and willingness to be the first Virtue Thong victim... er, customer... aren't appreciated.)

Pshaw, I've seen plenty of men wearing ringers! You can get them at places like Urban Outfitters in America. Try vintage/indie shops.

Right, I have a t-shirt with rings on it, but the one on cafepress seems to have extra room in the top half that I would leave unoccupied.  Or in reality would that not be there?

A few more ideas, feel free to ignore/flame as you desire:

- PPG mousepad
- "House of Sim" hoodie
- "Banter Pack" messenger bag
- "Last Mug of Ale in Amn" stein
- "Ensign First Class Blather" BBQ Apron
- Calender with portraits of the various PPG NPCs (I realise there aren't 12, but it could include the various one-days and some of the alternate Kelseys).

Archive your MOD-making discussions.
Include some hard-to-find mods(Juna, Forgotten Children)
Include mod tools.
Price the CD accordingly (USD10 is about right).
I'd buy.

I think it'd be better to read "WeiDU Ninja!"

Okay, so you've exposed my ignorance.  Explain the difference between the baseball shirt and the raglan, now. :)

'Raglan' refers to the type of the sleeve, how it's attached to the rest of the garment (compare 'raglan'shirt and regular and you can see the difference).  :)

Sim has a... rallying cry, or a catchphrase, or something. It is "NO PUBES." It it unclear to anyone but him exactly what it means (if it's an accusation, or a directive, or what.)
I've never felt it particularly significant.

Nowadays, internet transactions are actually safer than using your credit/debit card in a shop.

It isn't actually the transaction that I am worried about (*they* make sure the transaction works!), it's the mail service. Too many times have I sent away for stuff and it never showed up. (T-shirts, Lego sets, Warhammer models, Books) It starts getting to ya...

Shouldn't the calender be for next year? It's July already so who's gonna pay for a calender that's already half obsolete?

I would like to disclaim that I *just* rolled out of bed for this photo. Hence the no smile. And any other oddity in the photo I can legitimately blame on sleepiness.
<StoplightRed> right, right. but see, most of my friends really aren't bastards.
