This is the third LA Pop Art shirt that I have purchased, and I must say that above the design, these shirts are well-crafted. I think that this tank is my fave; not only because of the message, but because of its durability and comfort. The cotton is really sturdy, but temperate, much the same as it is for the other LAPA shirts I have purchased. I haven't washed this one yet, but I don't think I would even take a chance on tossing it into the machine. It's already enough of a staple for me to want to keep it around for a while, so hand- washing it is. The ribbing is wide, so if you prefer a finer rib, be forewarned. No complaints, though. This shirt works nicely on a few levels.
