Opinions needed: Letterpress t-shirt

My venture TypographyShop is reprinting our "Letterpress" tee, which has been a minor hit in the lead community. The current design is on the woman in the image below.

A purist pointed out however, that the copy block should be upside down, as it's done when type is hand set. Do you feel we should offer that as an option as in the mock up on the male below?

Thanks in advance for your opinions.


No, that's pedantic. You could say it has to be upside-down the way most people use a composing stick, but once it's on the press it only depends on where you're standing.
