I also have a Sisters shirt collection...

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

After checking out the amazing collection posted by ribbons69, and because I probably completely lack originality, I've decided to post my Sisters shirt collection as well. I've been amassing these beauties since 1989 from various sources. Some are official, some...not so much. A couple are even hand-painted. So, in no particular order...I'll begin. Enjoy...
