Would love to have one if it was blue with black or white “calamities”

I just don’t like white tshirts except for undershirts. Oh, well.

Suson B.
Please...offer a Black T-shirt

Yes!! Please offer a Black t-shirt with White calamity artwork.

wear them with dresses!

yes, it's true. I wear all my Calamityware t-shirts with dresses. I wore this to a doctor's appointment, and they kept staring at my chestal area...which caused embarrassment, and a bit of hysteria. they said "there was a lot of things going on in that shirt"....I'm dying telling you this. Anyway they took the Calamityware info, and hopefully have ordered from your site.

I also would like some long sleeve shirts...

continue with the bizarre!

Eloise B.
Long Sleeve, Please!

I would love this in Long Sleeve! Thanks!

Love this shirt!

Everyone asks about the shirt, especially kids. They love picking out the characters. Great quality, very comfy. I agree with Eloise -- please make a long sleeve version.

This shirt says it all.

Being in the midst of a global pandemic, the only thing that allows me to cope is my sense of humor. This shirt is perfect for keeping me smiling. The moment I saw it I knew I had to order one for me and one for my daughter. The fabric is soft and cuddly, the fit is true to size, and the graphic says it all. Thank you, Calamityware, for helping keep our spirits up. We smile each time we put it on, and when the lockdowns are lifted, our friends will admire our wardrobe choices.

Perfect for the times we are in

Perfect to wear on a grocery run or just to amuse myself while sheltering. I would love more colors, though the blue-and-white is, of course, classic.

A Ten!!

Sent this to my son, not sure what his reaction would be...LOVED IT!! I agree with an earlier post, different color T shirts please!!

Awesome shirt

I love this shirt. Besides the fact that the picture is AWESOME, the shirt is incredibly soft and very comfortable!

Finally Took the Plunge

Lovely soft t-shirt. I love the second-look nature of the delightful design. Covid-19 sequestration persuaded me that life is too short to go without "it could be worse." It makes me smile every time I think of this phrase. So glad I bought it. I agree with several other reviewers--it would be nice to have a black or navy fabric with a white design.
