Coexist shirts @ 07:56 pm

"Simply Co-Exist" Make more than just a fashion statement while wearing this chic handmade cotton tee. Combining the three monotheistic symbols to spell COEXIST conveys a lifestyle of unity and acceptance. The "C" stands for for the cresent moon of Muslim, the "X" in the form of the Star of David and the "T" elogated like a cross. Band together with celebrities such as Bono, Jennifer Aniston and Ashton Kutcher, and expose the distraction of discrimination and promote peace, unity and acceptance. This short sleeve firecracker red colored tee is decorated with the COEXIST logo across the front in bright white with sky blue stitching around the logo and the sleeves. Available in sizes S-M-L.

'Make a fashion statement'. For $79US. I like the idea, but $80 for a cotton shirt???? Seems a bit much.

(really wishing that this wasnt my first actual post to the comm, after lurking on the boards since September. But yeah. *sigh* Regular newbie info: I'm from Canada, and have been a fan since Achtung Baby (although I knew about them during the Joshua Tree era, AB was what made me take notice. In my defense, I was 7 when JT was released XD). Finally got to see them live @ two of the September Toronto dates (up in the nosebleeds and in GA by absolutely insane luck), and was completely blown away by their live show...the energy, the sound...all of it. Probably only two other bands have been able to leave that much of an impression on me with their live performance. I still get chills thinking about it.)

The shirt is cute, but you could have bought 2 concert tees for that much money.

Better yet, you could make your own.

if it were an Edun product... I could *almost* see it.

Who is this Udi Behr fuckwit and why is he capitalizing off the "piece of graffiti in the Midwest" our B-man is busily promoting SANS MONEYMAKING??

Under the "banner" of marriage equality, yet. Gggrrrrrrr

...and the profits from this are going WHERE, exactly...?

I do love the shirt (could do without the pinkness however) but where is my $80 going...

thats my problem too.

Id rather buy a plain shirt, and make the stencil for it myself. Cost a hell of a lot less, and have a LOT more personal meaning.

Even if a large proportion of that $80 was going to charity, I wouldn't see such a huge problem. But in this case, I think it's pure profit. Grar.

Didn't the original maker of the "COEXIST" artwork, like sue U2 or something? Maybe he'll come after this person too.

(Unless this *is* the artist...)

DIY for this tee wouldn't be hard at all.

...$80? I don't think so. I felt dirty spending $50 on a corset. I'm of the opinion that no article of clothing should cost more than $20. Especially not a t-shirt.

Obviously the only road to coexistence is through blind consumerism. *facepalm* Pathetic, really. :(

I still want to tattoo the CoeXisT logo on the inside of my left wrist (where I wear my ONE wristband). I might actually do it tomorrow, if the snow doesn't keep me inside all day.

And welcome!
