We've hired a new screen printer for our wearables. Dad and I met with them Monday at their shop, and were both impressed with their operation and care they put in their product.

The first run will be ready to ship before Thanksgiving. We're just running black large and extra large this time. There might be one additional run before Christmas, so let me know if you have other requests for colors and sizes, you never know!

Use the coupon code "CLUB-T" without the quotes and get 25% off your preorder of the black shirts.

P.S. I'm working on new hats and other goodies too.

I have placed my order. I really need to replace my tattered, old and paint spattered Alembic t-shirt.
Woo hoo!

I'm ashamed to say I'd need a 'XXL'. :-(
Claret would be nice too.

If these look great I'll be ordering the who gamut of sizes in the next run.

I'll be working on all the special requests too - this first run is just to confirm that they can do an Alembic quality job. Then the colors, sleeves, mystery fun types will follow. I've got some ideas (mom has to hear me say that all day long).

You know what, I'd like another one of the Alembic denim shirts but with leather on the back of the shoulders (I think called the Yoke), instead of denim. Reason?.... purely practical as the rubbing action of my dreadlocks has worn it almost thread bare in just about 18 months of minimal use. Leather would be much harder wearing. One of the ladies in my band is a seamstress so may be able to drop some leather over that area for me.

Jacko, I have cut it actually it's now gone from just above my knees to just below my shoulder blades. Six snips of the scissors and about 13 years of lovingly tendered organic growth gone..... :-(

I'm heading up to the printers tomorrow afternoon for a press check. Hope they let me take some pictures in their shop. That means we should be sending out the preorders next week :-)

Boohoo! They just called me and had to reschedule the press check until Monday afternoon. Pardon me while I whine a little bit.

Yes - the coupon is good thru the end of the month.

I just picked these up:

And we will start shipping the preorders out on Monday. Before the end of the day I will update the order page to include the MEDIUM shirts I got (I'm lookin' at you, CJ!). Preorder discount coupon is good through November 30th.

I couldn't be happier with the printer's work. I'm so happy we found a great local group to work with.

Hey Mica,
I ordered a second large but really want a medium. There was no option to order a medium. So I would like one large and one medium. I hope this does not mess up the machine.
Sorry if I have messed things up for you folks. Happy Thanksgiving

Thanks Mica! Shame on me for not following this thread as closely as I should. Coupon or not, there's a Medium with my name on it (and I don't mean white felt lettering ironed on to the back)! I've been wanting a shirt since before the first curls of sawdust flew for DEJ...

We are combining orders, so if you overpaid shipping you will get a refund of that amount. Mary has also combed through to make sure the comments areas are taken into account (like if you ordered a L on the form but really wanted a M).

We can ship to Hungary, David. If the online store doesn't allow it, email me privately and we will make the arrangements directly.

Here's the image again:

color logo shirt

And we saved a shirt for you CJ - knew you would want it.

Just received notification from UPS that I have a package coming from Alembic. Unless the Mica and family are playing Santa and its the Series II I've always wanted, I assume my shirts are on their way.

Lots and lots of packages. I of course was slightly optimistic about how fast we could pack all of these up (big surprise, right?) and we also managed to get 2 shipments out to new dealers (France and Canada, I'm lookin' at you!).

If you haven't received your notification yet, you should get it today, because I think the last of the orders are leaving on the truck today.

I am planning another order with extended sizes (heck I need a new shirt!) and other colors. I'm going to get the "Sage Green" and probably "Claret Red" in the next installment. I also have new hats and another t-short design I'm cooking up as well. You know I'll keep the Alembic Club posted on progress.

I've had my black Alembic shirt for a few years and it still looks virtually new. Why? Because I treat it the same as my other 200+ black Tee's: Cold water wash while turned inside-out; then air dry exclusively. The design won't easily crack through abrasion in the machine and the black shirt will remain black (instead of fading to dark grey).

Even when supposedly pre-shrunk, if the shirt is uncomfortably large you can probably dry the heck out of it the first time you wash it and it will shrink without any other ill effects -- otherwise avoid machine drying like the plague. Especially exquisite shirts like these....

BTW, Mica, I'd pay a premium for a double-sided shirt with say, the current large logo and script on the back and a small, monochromatic logo on the left breast. Just sayin'....

Mine arrived this AM when it was 12 degrees out...I'm currently letting it sit in its container and slowly become adjusted to the temps and humidity in my house because, from what I've heard, they don't come with the capacity for truss rod adjustments.

Brian, if your "core" is anything like mine, when you put your shirt "laminate" on it is going to show some serious back bow that will only increase over the holidays with the ingestion of treats! I wish there was a truss adjustment for that condition, but unfortunately diet & exercise seems to be the only remedy!
