Peasant Dresses… Made by Real Peasants!

Want to look like a sexy peasant? The company calling itself “Haute Hippie” has the look for you, at least if you’re rich enough to spend $344 on a peasant dress, $255 on a peasant blouse, or $395 on a peasant tunic. You have to have a lot of money to own these peasant clothes, [...]

International Donation: Foundation Beyond Belief Horn of Africa Crisis Fund

To help pay for the costs of the Irregular Times website, we sell a few liberal t-shirts through the Ohio printer Skreened. The shirts we print on are made in the USA because clothing factories in the U.S. are regularly inspected and meet some basic ethical standards for the compensation and safety of workers. This [...]

Irregular Times Donation: the Electronic Frontier Foundation

This morning, I started to research Barack Obama’s nominees to watchdog civil liberties through the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board, and what I found about nominee Rachel Brand wasn’t pretty. As one of the members of the Bush administration in the Justice Department specializing in legal policy regarding the “War on Terror,” Brand repeatedly [...]

Pug Of Vengeance T-shirt

Yeah, I’ll even mock you and your weimerammermammerwhateveritis. I’ll puff up my chest and pretend that my dog proves what a badass I am, because I have a P-U-G, and not just any pug, I’ve got the freakin’ Pug of Vengeance! [...]

You Can’t Disparage Skreened When Wearing Skreened Shirts. The Lawyers Tell You So.

We use the Ohio-based shop Skreened for printing our sweat-free shirts, but I’ve got to say this part of their User Agreement, applying to everyone using their website, is almost completely assholic:

PUBLIC REPUTATION

You acknowledge and agree that you will not use any product ordered from the Site in a way that would be [...]

Hillary Clinton 2016?

Is the growing popularity of Hillary 2016 due to a quality that Clinton has herself, or is it due more to fatigue with the Obama vs. Romney contest we’re currently supposed to be focused on? [...]

Kiva Frowns but we Smile when Microloans Default

For every sweatshop-free t-shirt we sell at Skreened, we set aside a dollar to donate to some form of economic development for the poor people living overseas. Initially, we participated in microloans under the Kiva system, thinking that the non-profit’s loans must be generously giving people a hand up to a better life. But then [...]

Irregular Times Donations, April 2012: Planned Parenthood and Village Enterprise

We the writers for Irregular Times sell political shirts for three reasons:

1. To pay for the hosting and logistical costs associated with keeping Irregular Times up and running. 2. To help spread messages that we believe in. 3. To help change the world just a little bit.

#3 may seem odd to you; how [...]
