First, if you can’t afford a $20 shirt, then a $10 shirt made by a twelve year old who just lost his fingers is a pretty lousy alternative. Second, I’ve seen you all at the show. I saw *YOU* buying a $4 beer (plus one dollar tip!). If you can afford a band shirt, you can afford a $20 shirt. (I also point out that metal bands routinely sell their shirts for $25 or more. So, the $10-$12 price point is merely a fictitious one, created by the misapplication of something Ian MacKaye said when Repeater came out.)
