      Time for some new designs that aren't necessarily of people's faces :) Keep us updated on what's next for you, Paul!

    2. Creator Brit Masters on May 8, 2013

      Got my shirts like two weeks ago. Love them. Love the design, love the quality and feel of the material. Please keep the Kickstarter backers informed when you release new designs or other cool projects!

      Paul, got my two Amundsen shirts today! They are fantastic. Cotton is so soft! Thanks! Justin

    4. Creator Lavell on April 14, 2013

      Love my shirts, thanks Paul

    5. Creator Andrew Richiger on April 8, 2013

      Just opened my mail and what do I see but my UnderRepped t-shirt. Thank you Paul and team!

    6. Creator Megan Brooks on March 6, 2013

      Looks like Paul put up sizing charts on his web site, for anyone who wants to see those. Thanks! http://www.underrepped.com/sizing

    7. Creator Paul Leonard on March 5, 2013

      Hi Guys,

      For anyone interested in a sizing chart, please email me at UnderRepped@gmail.com. I can then send you the pdfs for all the sizing charts for our shirts and get you a perfect fitting shirt! Sorry but I wasn't able to upload files here or on a backer update.

    8. Creator Megan Brooks on March 5, 2013

      Agree with Mike! Please give measurements so I can order the right size. A women's medium can run anywhere from "impossibly and obscenely tiny" to "swimmingly large" on me. Some useful advice on providing measurements is available on the Geek Feminism wiki page on t-shirts. http://geekfeminism.wikia.com/wiki/T-shirts Thanks so much!!

    9. Creator Mike Green on March 5, 2013

      What are the measurements for each t-shirt size? Want to order the right size!

    10. Creator Paul Leonard on February 28, 2013

      Thanks Mike! I'll definitely hit you up soon man. Hope all is well.

    11. Creator Michael Minkoff on February 28, 2013

      Congratz on surpassing $10k!!! This is such a great idea -- can't wait to get the shirt!

    12. Creator Jasper Leenarts on February 27, 2013

    14. Creator Jessica Merczak on February 27, 2013

      What a lovely concept! Please add Mother Jones to the queue :)

    15. Creator Brit Masters on February 27, 2013

      Only $500ish to go!

    16. Creator Michael Griffiths on February 26, 2013

      Brilliant, thanks very much!

    17. Creator Paul Leonard on February 26, 2013

      Michael, once the Kickstarter campaign ends I'll send everyone a survey and then you'll decide what color, size, style shirt you want. Thanks for joining!

    18. Creator Michael Griffiths on February 26, 2013

      Hi, I've just backed the project. How do I say what size tshirt+who I want on it?
      Thanks very much! Great product!

    19. Creator Jeremy on February 22, 2013

      Congratulations!

    20. Creator Bryan Acomb on February 21, 2013

      Can't wait to get them shirtses!

      My architecture background forces me to name this very VERY underrepped gentlemen who is responsible for the safety brake that kept elevators from falling in case the cable snapped, the inimitable Elisha Graves Otis.

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elisha_Otis

      Without Otis, cities never densify or grow higher than 5 stories which stands as one of the major catalysts of the Industrial Revolution.

    21. Creator Jasper Leenarts on February 19, 2013

      /cheer great job Paul!

    22. Creator Jared on February 19, 2013

    24. Creator Eric Rasbach on February 18, 2013

      Awesome idea, love that Tesla was included. Best of luck.

    25. Creator Ahren Potratz on February 18, 2013

      Hi Paul! Super excited for this project to be fully funded. Love the idea and I love Adam and the guys over at Camden Printworks! Can't wait for my T.

    26. Creator Zainul Hasanali on February 14, 2013

      Who's the model that's wearing your shirts in all the artsy pictures!?

    27. Creator Lauren Lumpp on February 14, 2013

      So cool Paul! Just shared with the HP ED crew - good luck!

    28. Creator Paul Leonard on February 13, 2013

      Hey Jasper,
      Right now we offer shirts in black, gray, and blue. Stay tuned though- since we hit the 75% mark we'll be adding a new color option today!

    29. Creator Jasper Leenarts on February 13, 2013

      Hey Paul, what colors do you have now? Black, gray and blue? Thought it was on the frontpage somewhere, but couldn't find it anymore.

      And I really like the kind of sepia color for the print over the white color.

      Philosopher, Mathematician, Scientist and Engineer, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gottfried_Wilhelm_Leibniz)

      I've not been able to find someone more underrepped... this poor guy needs UnderRepped Clothing!

    31. Creator Mauricio Yamashita on February 8, 2013

      Another idea, Rosalind Franklin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosalind_Franklin), after all, if there's one person who was underreped is her...

    32. Creator Cheryl Silveri on February 4, 2013

      So cool! Wish I could give more--I'm involved in a couple startups myself. Good luck and keep us posted!

    33. Creator Stephanie Thomas on February 3, 2013

      My vote goes to Alexander Fleming for his discovery of penicillin. Just think about how many lives the class of penicillins have saved!

    34. Creator Kristen Kieffer on February 3, 2013

      And Charles R. Drew, the black surgeon who pioneered techniques for preserving blood plasma.

    35. Creator Kristen Kieffer on February 3, 2013

      Just supported your project, good luck! Nikola Tesla would be vote for a t-shirt as an "UnderRepped" inventor.

    37. Creator Kevin Whalen on February 1, 2013

      I vote for John Harington - invented the flush toilet!

    38. Creator Mauricio Yamashita on February 1, 2013

      Do you plan on having additional designs as stretch goals? Can the backers choose those additional designs? I vote for Rudolph Virchow! (I'm a pathologist). But seriously, I think that the chance for backers to vote on additional designs as a strech goals would probably help push the project along.

    39. Creator Shelley Walton on January 30, 2013

      Good Luck Paul! Awesome Idea! Proud to be a backer!

    40. Creator Kevin Whalen on January 28, 2013

      Aside from the fact that this guy will save lives some day, he is bringing BACK to life history through some fun & creative ways. I know I'm going the Amundsen route & rocking that Stache' for all of Movember 2013!

    41. Creator Jeremy on January 28, 2013

      Love the idea - great video - hope it gets off to a running start! Best of luck!

    42. Creator Mark King on January 28, 2013

      In a category where even the most creative ideas tend to be uninspired UnderRepped gives us something to think about, appreciate, and be inspired by. This is a winner right out of the gate. Nicely done!

    43. Creator Ryan Ferebee on January 28, 2013

      Good luck Paul, this is an awesome idea! I have to say that I've been on KickStarter for awhile now and this is the first time someone I know has had a project up. Hope all is well in your life man. Glad to be a backer!
