Disappointed

I've gotta say, I'm pretty underwhelmed with the slim choices of Marty Feldman t-shirts available to today's consumer. You'd think in the year 2008 that when you've decided that you would like some garb adorned with the strange visage of the bug-eyed English comedian and Google "Marty Feldman t-shirt," that a veritable avalanche of choices would come your way. But you'd be wrong. The selection is really quite slim, ranging from a blurry, obviously unlicensed shot of him as Eye-gor in "Young Frankenstein" on a white Hanes Beefy-T (the lamest of all t-shirts, they are as thick and itchy as burlap and shrink in length yet grow wider with each washing), and an all-type treatment that says "I heart Marty Feldman." That's it. Two crummy options in the whole world.

Lame. Unacceptable. Outrageous.

All I want is an American Apparel colored t-shirt (in blue, maybe gold) with the below image on it, and no type.



Is that so much to ask? Apparently it is. Bah!

I know a guy who can make them - he made some Art Bell t-shirts for me awhile back. Just let me know, but I want one, too!

Can I just say that I think the way you voiced your complaints is so funny. And it's very true. Marty Feldman - no book, no t-shirts, no biopic...no nothing haha.

Though, usually there are very nice t-shirts with the exact picture you showed, available on Ebay. But maybe currently they are not. They usually go in phases, they'll get put on then taken off, etc...so be on the look out. That's where I got one, that I rather like. I was in NYC last weekend and I got a lot of great comments on it. This one lady practically stopped us in the middle of the street and was like "omg it's Marty Feldman", as if he were walking down the street haha.

Anyway...fun stuff.

Hmmm. Maybe I just checked on the wrong day. I remember searching at some point last year and not finding much then either. But I'll keep my eyes on ebay and see what pops up.
Thanks.
