    I went today too, specifically looking for them, and they didn't have.

    Wow- That is sad on how few locations will carry the shirts- I can easily see it being only 1-2 per city but only 16 total? That's crazy and IMO a poor retail decision. Id have put them online only before that!

    I guess I'm lucky that one of my local stores will have them but now thinking itd be better to not buy one in the fact so many others cant..

    I love the idea, but the execution is sorely lacking. I am really bummed that they are not selling these online. Can you imagine how much money they would make from Podunk Nowhere Middle American members of the LGBT community and their friends if they were offered online?

    A win and a fail all at the same time. sigh :sad2:

    Well, Old Navy screwed up all around. Despite all the hoopla about them going on sale today, not even the 26 stores have them yet. They weren't shipped out in time plus there was a holiday weekend, and now many stores are "hoping" to see them next week some time - too late for those of us in Orlando who may have wanted to wear them during Gay Days weekend. Way to go, Old Navy!! :headache:

    The 2 stores I usually shop in are supposed to have the shirts, but I didn't go to either one to see if they had them in stock. Sounds like it would have been a wasted trip!

    exactly my thought.
    they should pretty much be selling them in our entire state here.

    and they really should be selling them online.

    They have them at my Old Navy in Atlanta, I have a feeling probably the only store in the state. I wish they were everywhere:headache:.

    This is a good example of how to turn a positive into a negative.
