Starting in December, each normal Lootcrate will have a T-shirt. That's pretty cool, and they might be doing that to help prevent fears that they are diverting all the apparel to just the Level Up crates. Probably a smart move both from public relations, and the fact that many people like T-shirts.
Level Up shipments start shipping around the 20th-24th of each month.
Normal Loot Crates apparently ship between 20th and 28th of each month.
