LAIBACH REINDEER 1
The motive for these T shirt is the famous ‘Murmansk Reindeer' photo, taken by Yevgeni Khaldev, the same photographer who captured the staged raising of the hammer & sickle at the Reichstag, Germany - May 2, 1945. Though admitting the famous photo showing the reindeer silhouetted on an overcast Murmansk sky, Hawker Hurricanes unleashing ordinance overhead is indeed a composite, Khaldei is insistent on the underlying veracity of his image. There was in fact a reindeer that showed up during air raids, and he tells the story that inspired the famous edit: ‘During the bombings, a reindeer came out of the tundra. He wanted to be with people. They built him a shed to live in, and gave him a name, Yasha. Every time the alarm sounded, he ran to be with the soldiers as he apparently didn’t want to be alone. During one of the air raids, I took this shot. In 1944, when the battle for Murmansk was over, the soldiers didn’t know what to do with him. They loaded him into a truck and took him back to the tundra, thinking he would join the other deer. But he couldn’t understand what was happening. He ran after the truck as long as he could.’

For me it's actually the same as for Alen below, but the other way round - I've ordered the M size, and t-shirt turned out to be bigger than I needed (usually it fits. I'm of an average build (180 cm, 72 kg), so it's a bit weird. So be careful when you order! Otherwise t-shirts (I've ordered another one) are good - fabric and print quality, and especially the pic itself are good!

Hello from Kazakhstan fan of Laibach!
I decided to buy white Laibach tshirt for summer.
The print and material quality are decent but t-shirt size runs smaller then american XXL I'm 194cm/102 kg and it fitted me good during first wear but as I expected after first wash it became smaller because cotton was not preshrunk :-( So if you are tall keep it in mind.
I would suggest WTC to use tshirts with preshrunk cotton or extend sizing to one more
