The Shirt in Real Life

February 17, 2006 by

Some people have said that the shirt looks better in real life than on the catalog page, and thus the image upgrade:

You’re right! It does look better. I really like it.

It looks better in real life….so we’re taking another picture of the shirt which is not real life. Genius. Just kidding. It looks great a lot better than in the catalogue

Very attractive.

I was consdering buying a shirt, however I’m not sure how you define small medium and large. It can vary. If someone could post measurements here It’d greatly appreciated.

R.P. McCosker February 17, 2006 at 6:37 pm

Forget the shirt. What I want to know is: Who’s that being shown modeling it?

Pretty female Austrian economist? Where do I sign up for the next Mises University?

jeffrey February 17, 2006 at 7:33 pm

Well, this is Lauren who works at the Mises Institute–library, front desk, shipping, and research–and is also a student at Auburn University. She is also the huge fan of Institute gear, from powerbands to shirts and attaches.

Shirt size measurements are

* Small- 34″-36″
* Med — 38″-40″
* Large- 42″-44″
* XL — 46″-48″
* XXL — 50″-52″

Yeah, you should have a bigger picture.

Peter February 17, 2006 at 11:18 pm

I don’t know about the polo shirt, or the various tee shirts with dead economists, but I’d buy a shirt with Lauren on it.

She is quite cute.

Good heavens, people. The pretty face is distracting from the shirt. I guess that’s fine so long as you eventually notice the shirt at some point, eh?

“library, front desk, shipping, and research–and is also a student at Auburn University.”

Talk about capitalist exploiters!

If you put up a picture of me, people will want to look at nothing but the shirt.

Seriously, though. Try a picture with both a woman and a man. That way everyone gets a chance to look at some eye candy while they open their wallets.

J. H. Huebert February 19, 2006 at 7:32 pm

Vanmind is on the right track. Really, to maximize your appeal to the target audience (whose mentality is on display in this comments thread), the man should be wearing the Mises shirt and the woman should be there because (we infer) the shirt attracted her.

jeffrey February 19, 2006 at 8:14 pm

Well, there’s not a lot of calculation here; it’s just that she is the most enthusiastic of anyone in the office for Mises gear and likes to promote Mises.org. For example, she thinks the attache bag is great and carries it on campus to hold her iBook.

Whatever. She’s adorable. I don’t think you could have hired a better model.
