Where can i see the design? I would actually prefer a sweater with
hoodie, or a pair of trousers with your marketing on. Actually i need
some socks and underwear too...

Where are you located (mail can be expensive)?

Why I would (not) buy it:
- design
- money
- sweatshops/slavery used for production
- used fabrics (eg: i'm not so much into LaTeX)
