There's NO official merchandise AT ALL.

You can get some posters for Dear Heather and recent CDs (Polish, Swedish, US) at eBay. And many singles. I have purchased few things there for reasonable prices, 10-30 US dollars, (Dear Heather poster from Sweden; The Essential single from Spain; 1974 tour poster from NME).

The only recent and widely available stuff was 2006 poster for Leonard Cohen I'm Your Man movie. Maybe you can find it also on eBay.

T-shirts on eBay are fake - home-made stuff.

ONLY recent merchandise done by Leonard himself were not commercial - mementos for Leonard Cohen Events ( http://www.leonardcohenfiles.com/ny-C2.html and http://www.leonardcohenfiles.com/berlin-mementos.html ), and 1993 tour memorabilia like tea cups, watches, T-shirts etc., with The Future logo. You can check it all at The Files: http://www.leonardcohenfiles.com/fut-memo.html

Anyhow, you can see all in Collectors' Rarities section of The Files: http://www.leonardcohenfiles.com/rarities.html

I have been trying to get a t shirt for years so in the end I just made my own, and as I had got myself a mug machine for my work, I printed a Leonard mug the other day. I can't sell either obviously as the images on the mug would be copyrighted it is just for me, and was really just a practice but it is rather lovely even if i do say so myself.
