I am interested in purchasing the Black Page shirt.

The image is too small on here, and I was wondering if anyone who owns it could upload a higher resolution photo so I can see the design better?
Thanks.

I also like that shirt, but a while ago several forum members posted on this shirt after they purchased it. They were complaining about how cheap they were in terms of quality. Apparently they are super thin and cheaply made. I remember they were saying they were afraid to wash it even once. On E-bay there are several cool shirts for sale. Most of them are not "official", meaning not sold by the ZFT, but your chances of getting good qualty are very good.

I got mine during the first or second ZPZ tour. It's pretty decent quality, and I wear it a lot. However, perhaps later or on-line versions are thinner and cheaper. Having said that, I've stopped buying shirts from the ZPZ (or licensed stuff on-line) because they are almost universally too small and thin and cheap. It's too bad, because I'd buy them all otherwise.... :x

Maybe Diva could knit a thicker shirt for you.

I purchased this shirt about 2 years ago and it is a good quality shirt. I recently ordered the orange "Torture Never Stops" shirt and it is very thin, I was pretty disappointed in the quality of it. For $30 I expect more. If the new versions of the Black Page shirt are from the same supplier as the "Torture Never Stops" shirt I would save your money.

I have the one from the ZPZ tour but that's not the one at the top of this thread.

I also have that one and it was from a 70's Zappa gig at Hammersmith Odeon. It's lasted pretty well although it's faded a bit. Not getting rid of it anytime although I am starting to think I need to pare down the t-shirt collection - not enough days to wear 'em all. No actual FZ ones will be going though.
