Erickson Collection has shirts and jackets with some of the aircraft they have (mostly WWII vintage).  Nothing funny, just nice screen printed items.  No armor or ships though.

Most are in the $15-20 range.  I would imagine they would ship. 

Do a search for "Erickson Collection"

I find the best shirts are at http://www.militaryissue.com/Shirts/products/107/.

Watch for the sales and sign up for the catalogs. They have shirts from All periods with some cools sayings and even Hawaiian shirts with Bombers, fighters, warships, tanks etc.

They also send coupons so their pricing isnt bad then,

I'm a WW1 buff. Am I high because I don't get the Austro Hungarian soldier t shirt? 99 problems is a Jay Z song, no? I don't get the correlation?

I have a nice Hawaiian shirt with the Pearl Harbor battleships.

Bought it at the WW2 Museum in New Orleans.

Pricey

The AH empire had a lot of problems, among them waging war on multiple fronts backed by an economy that never geared up to properly wage such a war.  A duel monarchy, and trying to get multiple ethnic backgrounds to serve under one voice did not help.

It was also stifled with old tradition and the business of morganatic marriages.

If you're talking about the fact that the Archduke Franz Ferdinand married a lesser class woman and that it affected soldiers ability to rise to proper fighting ability or effected moral, I say no. The Austro-Hungarian army was a proper fighting force. Very loyal. Austro Hungary were on the cutting edge of ethnic inclusion for the time. They suffered the same problems of modern war fought by a pre modern war army, like everyone else. They adapted like everyone else. One of the biggest Central Powers victories was at Caporetto led by the Austro-Hungarians. It was the Allied sea power and blockade that doomed the Austro-hungarian Empire and Germany. Their land armies were top-notch but you had to feed them and their families at home.
