Asos.com are selling a hi, how are you t-shirt for £35. It is identical to (but more expensive than) the official t-shirt, so wouldn't it have to be licensed?

They don't even mention Daniel Johnston anywhere, and I imagine it's going to be bought by a bunch of people who are too lazy to even google the name but just want a "cool" t-shirt, which I guess would be okay if Daniel actually saw any profit from it. Otherwise, not so much. I don't know how these things work, but I know something seems quite awry.

Hmmm...that does seem unusual, and Asos seems pretty big to be just knocking them off. Maybe Dejected will know...

Maybe it's their 'soft cotton' that allows them to charge 35 pounds...   Smiley

Shoot you can go to the official website and get one shipped in the US for 18.50 usd.If they are going to sell Daniels shirts they should at least say Daniel Johnston in the shirt title.

Thanks for your concern over this.   

Daniel has licensed the Hi How Are You album image to 2K Gingham, and is paid a royalty for shirts sold.   If the Asos.com shirt is from 2K Gingham, that's what it is.  It is pricey, to be sure.

There's a better version coming out from WornFree soon.  I hope to put them in Daniel's web stores also, and maybe on tour.   

The WornFree shirt is also a much more upscale shirt - thin and very elastic - which is apparently a popular thing right now.  We got some samples, and I have to admit it is comfortable!  You hardly feel like you have a shirt on.   That may or may not be a good feeling, I guess.   But I would pay more for a shirt like that!

There are other limited licensing deals going on, but it is our intention to make the shirts at Daniel's web sites high quality and an attractive choice for fans, because Dan does get a lot more of the money when sold from his web sites.
