    It's a clever design and cool graphic. If it was in 100% cotton I'd order two. But the polyester is a deal killer. Martin isn't the only manufacturer doing this. Gibson and Fender, both with iconic graphic images, only offer their shirts in polyester blends, probably thinking a lower price point attracts the younger customer. Their loss.

    It is a Martin advertisement. I mean, you're paying the Martin guitar company to advertise their ukuleles for them. Just saying.
    I don't want to live in a world that is linear.

    I just want everyone to understand that I am not a ukulele expert, even though it may look at times like I'm pretending to be.

    I have one. It's a great shirt, very soft and comfortable. Wore it during this hot summer on the east coast, very cool.

    Yes, this is true.

    I'd like to think that if you spend above a certain price, that any instrument company would bundle a shirt for free.

    It's the least they could do to compensate you for the free advertising they will get when you wear it.

    Consequently I do not like to wear anything with logos on it like Nike, Addidas or other brands. If they gave me the shirt for free I might reconsider, but if I am going to pay $25+ for a t-shirt, I'd prefer it have my OWN design, and would put something up on Cafepress or Zazzle and just do it that way...

    My thoughts exactly. Too bad-- it's a great looking shirt!

    It's very comfortable, It actually has a wicking effect. Worked well during a very hot and humid summer and fall. In my opinion cotton retains perspiration and becomes very uncomfortable.

    Been eying this shirt for some time. Great for uke gigs. I stopped in my tracks ordering it when I found Martin & Co does not have a safe CC environment.
