    Its absolutely Ryan's style rather than some sappy tribute T-Shirt.

    Just bought it. Wont be able to wear it out of the house but goes to a great cause so got it extra big and figured it could be my "sitting on the computer all day Sunday playing games" shirt.

    Didn't need to be sappy, but I would of liked the memorial shirt to be something I could have worn in public. That said... I'll be buying one to offer my support.

    I'm willing to double down on multiple shirts if they made a more public friendly one, but I'm still totally buying that one.

    Personally I think it is pretty dumb. I imagine less people will buy the shirt since it probably is something that most people won't actually wear.

    It's exactly what it needs to be. It's got the right tone and is done in the right spirit. Tasteful, despite what some may think given the use of the word "fuck."

    It has also been stated on twitter they will look into a non-fuck on a shirt option.

    I also wish it were something more publicly wearable, but that's still brilliant.

    That's what I was going to make for an avatar after hearing about his death, but I wasn't sure if the comma was enough to convey proper meaning. I should have jumped on it. I could be rich!.... and by that I mean richer from having known of Ryan

    If there was an option I could proudly wear in public I'd be all over it. I don't feel this is that option.

    I'll wait for the non-fuck version to contribute. The "Love Ryan Davis" seems to be more appropriate imho.

    I'd prefer a straight donation rather than have a portion of that $25 go to a shirt I'll never wear. I'm glad to give wherever I can though.

    It would be cool if it was just "Ryan Davis". In saying that, I am mulling over if I want to buy this.

    This is absolutely true, but that is at their individual choice. Many people would not be comfortable doing this. Remember that just because someone does it, doesn't mean that everyone else wants to do it.

    I don't think the fuck is distasteful, but it means I won't be wearing the shirt in front of people. A cleaner version of the shirt would be great. As

    @thesly

    said, 'Love Ryan Davis' would be a really nice alternative option.

    Just to confirm, do all of the proceeds of this go towards Ryan's wife?

    EDIT: I clicked the link and got my answer straight away, good to know there's a way to help out.

    While Fuck Ryan Davis and Fuck, Ryan Davis is hilarious I don't think I can get that T Shirt because I just wouldn't be able to wear it anywhere. Looking forward to the version I can wear places.

    It's clever. I like it.

    If I were to dream, though, I'd like a shirt of Olly Moss' design of Ryan Davis.

    Personally, I would have been fine with just a re-issue of the original shirt. But what really matters is where the money is going. The shirt is irrelevant.

    Greatly miss the big guy. Bought a shirt, going to a good cause. Really wishing they would re-issue the Ryan narc shirt though, missed out on that one. One of my fav Ryan podcast moments/stories.

    A lot of people made great tribute art honoring Ryan, and I feel that any of those would've been a better choice. That said I agree with Milkman it's where the money is going not the shirt that matters, but I'll wait and see if they make a shirt with a design I like more, if they don't I'll buy this one.

    The reason they can't / won't use art is because of cost to produce. A single colour text shirt is cheap to produce, printing multi coloured art is not. If we want as much going to the good cause as possible then it needs to stay text based.

    Ryan brought plenty of laughter to me over the years. The least I can do is buy some stupid ass (meant as a complement) shirt and wear it out in public with absolutely zero context. Plus it is for a great cause. Take my money.

    At people asking why profanity on a shirt is an issue: I'm sure it differs depending on location, but around here, you can get fined, thrown out, etc. for wearing something like that. Probably won't in most cases, but it can and has happened (hell, just a few months ago, two women got thrown out of a mall for wearing anti-cancer hats that actually had the word "fuck" semi-censored), and even when it doesn't, it's not worth getting endlessly accosted by passers-by.

    I'm buying it tomorrow (assuming stock lasts) - but can't wear it either :(

    But hey, that was only part of the point. Hopefully the guys also reissue China Don't Care with the same donation hooks - the one shirt I missed out on and really wanted.
