Three Moon Wolf TshirtExamples of some of the reviews are:

"This item has wolves on it which makes it intrinsically sweet and worth 5 stars by itself, but once I tried it on, that's when the magic happened. After checking to ensure that the shirt would properly cover my girth, I walked from my trailer to Wal-mart with the shirt on and was immediately approached by women."

"Unfortunately I already had this exact picture tattooed on my chest, but this shirt is very useful in colder weather."

"Personally, i would have liked the T shirt more if the three wolves were fighting a powerful grizzly bear to the death, ON the moon. I would buy the T shirt if it portrayed that."

The only thing that could be better than actually knowing a man who runs with the Three Wolf Moon shirt would be standing in front of a whole sales rack full of them at discount designer clothing superstore, Loehmann’s? Seeing all of them bursting with potential, smelling the muskiness of the fresh transfer ink, knowing they could be had for up to 65% off the prices found elsewhere.
I would buy one for all the men I know and use my Gold Club card for even more savings…it would be Shopping Nirvana…
