I preordered all 3 KanColle shirts when they where on sale back in April and just received them today. The Akagi shirt is beautifully done but the image quality on the Shimakaze and Kongo shirts is not what I expected.











I was wondering if I had received bad prints or if this was the intended image quality, it is hard to tell from the small images on the store page. While I have many t-shirts with complicated designs on them this is my first foray into anime inspired shirts so I am unsure of the standard image quality.

Any info would be appreciated. Thanks

Update:

A review appeared on the Shimakaze shirt's store page confirming the poor image quality of the Shimakaze shirt. While disappointed I decided to go ahead and wash them and add them to my closet. After washing though the poor quality of the Shimakaze shirt became more apparent. The shirt shrunk by roughly 3 inches compared to the Kongo and Akagi shirts. Before you ask I did follow the washing instructions, machine wash cold / tumble dry low, and none of the 15+ other shirts that were in that load shrunk. They clearly used a different base shirt from the other two as the material was thinner and the results are disappointing.

If your thinking of buying the Akagi shirt do it, it is a beautiful shirt.
If your thinking of buying the Kongo shirt be aware the image quality could be better but it's still a pretty nice shirt.
If your thinking of buying the Shimakaze shirt don't, it is a waste of money.

Personally , when it comes to washing shirts like that , I hand wash & hang to dry only . I have a Batman Arkham City shirt I only wore once , hand washed it & put it up in the closet . No shrinkage . I had a friend who use to have a company that did silkscreen shirts & that's how he said to do them too .

Hi, I was thinking about buying one of these t-shirts and the image in the store is still pretty small.

Was the quality an issue? I'm in the UK so returns are not something I want to consider really
