A first step towards that is to remove the store link from the website navigation. I hopefully just did that (svn commit 26124).

I reverted the commit.

First, we should remove the shirts from the store we don't like,
rather than remove the link to the store.

Second, the shirts we send to volunteers/contributors are the same I
used to manually send to people. It has front tor logo and back "these
aren't the nodes you're looking for" quote. These special shirts are
only available in black and green. And they're only available through
special links I sent to people. You have to be invited to get this
shirt, either through running a relay or doing something special for
tor.

The shirts for sale are the tor sticker design and have nothing on the
back. These shirts are available in any color the store offers.

We have two different designs to delineate "volunteer/contributor" from
"normal person who bought it". This is consistent with what we had
before.

Third, we use printfection because they guaranteed us they would never
collect, sell, or otherwise pimp out the user data. No one else
promised this and didn't want our business if they couldn't use our
data to sell to the lowest bidder.

I talked to Kelley about the tshirt topic as well. She thinks the tshirt quality we're getting from the store is bad. She and I think that's embarrassing to Tor.

They're the same shirts we had before. If it's embarrassing, then it's been so for a decade or so.
