these shirts are $20 apiece, plus $5 shipping and handling(just the most minimal handling by people who just washed both hands, right up until they go from the box into the envelope after which it's just proxy-esque handling, through layers of envelope material, probably padded and everything, and just by USPS people, until it reaches your hands which can be in any condition, because by then it's out of our hands)
