danandphilshop merchandise questions and discussion

PostPosted by adequate duck » Tue Dec 13, 2016 11:26 am

i thought it'd be handy to have a place where we can comment on and ask others about specifics of deppy's merch, quality, sizing etc. i know people often have questions before they buy, so here is a place to find answers to those questions.

How big are the backpacks? Can someone that has one actually post a picture with one full of stuff? I've only seen pictures of them empty.

Definitely seconding this. I'm contemplating buying the Dark Galaxy one and really want to know if it would be a good purchase. (So if someone could do that it would be really nice!)

I have the Pixel people backpack. I have had it since 28/01/2015. It is still in good condition. I use it every single day for work and carry around my laptop every day. I also used it for hand luggage when I went to Florida in September.

I can fit in it every day:
In the laptop sleeve:
15" Hp laptop and my 7" tablet

In the main compartment:
Cable
Pencil case (pixel people because I like to match)
My Kate Spade large purse
Make up bag
Water bottle.

In the little pockets:
Tin of mints
my inhaler
Hairbrush
Sweeteners

Photos are underneath the spoilers as quite large. Please ignore my messy office floor!! :gg: :gg:

1) The bag from the front
Image


2) The bag from the side.
Image



3) The inside of bag. Hopefully it is light enough you to see it.

I have a lot of the merch (Jumpers, T-Shirts, Wristbands, stickers) so if you have any questions just ask.

Has anyone bought the galaxy sweater? I'm considering it, but 100% polyester sounds like it might be a bit sweaty and static-y? Is this the case? Will the sweater make my hair stand on end with static if I take it off?

It's 100% comfy, in my opinion. I don't recall having static issues when I wore it, but that was only once so far. (And I got several compliments, which is rare.)
The inside is a white fleece-like texture and the outside is quite soft as well. It isn't as thick as generic sweatshirts which helps with not overheating.

I haven't washed it yet (ugh, laundry), but it says not to tumble dry, and I believe it.

Just as a note here for anyone like me who's used to throwing things in the dryer: watch the labels. The cotton t-shirts are NOT pre-shrunk and they will get smaller.


Also, I have a question too: if anyone has the keyring - the picture has Dan's hair going the wrong way, which bothers me a lot. :lol: Is that actually how it is, it's not just a photo error?

His hair is going in the wrong way on the actual keyring too. :(

I've had it on my wallet for at least a year now, probably, and I never once realized it was the wrong way until you pointed it out. D:

apathy thanks for the answer! Not being able to tumble dry it would be annoying when I go back to uni and don't have much drying space, but 100% polyester would probably dry quite quickly so it wouldn't be too bad. It's annoying that they don't put the washing instructions on the website, most clothing sellers do.

Has anyone had the galaxy jumper long enough to wash it? Does it shrink or become more static-y?

I can second this. I got the Lion Pocket t-shirt and it shrank after the first wash. Fortunately it still fit because it was on the large side when I first got it, but I did like the looser fit :(
If you are buying a cotton t-shirt and are borderline between two sizes on the measurements chart I would recommend getting the larger size.

I got the shirt in the summer and they may have improved the design since then, but on the one I have the top of the pocket is not properly hemmed. The fabric is folded over and pressed down, and only sewn along the sides of the pocket. This is enough to make it look nice when it arrives, but after washing the extra fabric pops up and is visible above the line of the pocket. There really should be an extra line of stitching across the top of the outer pocket to hem it properly, but on the one I bought there isn't. This doesn't bother me too much, but if this will be annoying to you or trigger OCD then maybe buy something different. I'd be interested to hear from anyone who bought the lion or llama pocket t-shirt more recently to see if they have improved the design.

I'm probably the last person to get Deppy merch (can't believe I caved in :facepalm2:) but here is my galaxy t-shirt review. T-shirt size chart (XXS-XXL) is definitely for typically men's clothes, though obviously look at sizing in cm. The t-shirt is quite sticky and obviously not warm (polyester duh), but not uncomfortable to the skin and rather soft for synthetics, all stitches look well made, no sticking out threads, nicely done neck. It looks more cool purple (violet) & dusty black irl than on the shop preview and in videos, where it's more red/warmer wine colour & blue at the bottom. Haven't washed it yet.

I got size M definitely not just to compare how it would look on 5'4 size XS me vs 6'2 Phil lol. It's huuuge on me, but I'm gonna wear it with jackets, so it's fine. Pics for comparison below. :thumb:

Thanks! I’d suggest maybe an S (cause it’s men’s chart S) – it’ll still be quite oversized but less static-y because of less loose material. I also prefer the cooler purple, I think they might’ve increased warmth&saturation for website pics or the shade can vary?
