Irregular Apparel: T-Shirts to Support Progressive Moral values, made without Sweatshop LaborIrregular Apparel is the t-shirt store for people who care about the irreverence of a message and the ethics of production. We offer politically and socially aware messages on clothing for men, women, kids and even babies that is colorful, inexpensive, covered with sass-filled designing but made without sweatshop labor. We love to wear great looking shirts, but we don't like having a guilty conscience about the threads we wear and sell. Most clothing today is made in sweatshops where workers are abused and paid a pittance. That's hideous, but there is an alternative. Every shirt we sell here is printed by the Ohio community outfit Skreened and made in worker-friendly conditions by American Apparel. Now that's real comfort.

2000 to 2008 -- The Rise of An Outraged Voter
Show the progression of your committed outrage with this t-shirt, made ethically in the USA by American Apparel.
American Liberal Bald Eagle Patriotic T-shirt
This patriotic shirt, unlike too many others, is actually made in the USA - no foreign outsourced sweatshops were involved in making this piece of clothing. That's what makes an American liberal's patriotism different from a right winger's patriotic pose.
American liberals actually support the country by buying American products and defending American wildlife, like the American bald eagle shown on this design.
You can be proud to be an American liberal in these Irregular Times.
American Liberal Flag Shirt
You're a bona fide, honest-to-goodness American Liberal. So show off your American Liberal identity with pride!
Bill of Rights and the Statue of Liberty Shirt
This shirt displays the Statue of Liberty next to the full text of that core patriotic articulation of American civil liberty, the Bill of Rights. Show where your strongest loyalties lie when you wear this shirt from Irregular Times.
Blind Faith in Bad Leaders is Not Patriotism
Bong Hits 4 Jesus, Not 4 Kids!
This t-shirt follows up on the Supreme Court’s declaration that minors can’t say anything that might embarrass their school … even if they are off school grounds! So come on, kids … wear one of these to school and dare your principal to take it off your back.
DARE to tell the kids ... American Apparel Shirt
DARE to tell the kids you smoked a doobie once, too.
Dissent is the Highest Form of Patriotism
No, contrary to the internet consensus Thomas Jefferson did not actually say it. But that doesn't make them any less true. Dissent is the Highest Form of Patriotism. By standing up to what they feel is error in fact, error in logic, or error in principle, dissenters become most valuable to the nation -- keeping us from going astray in a fit of false consensus.
End the Drug War (t-shirt)
The “drug war” has put non-violent people with an illness behind bars. Addiction is a health problem, not a crime. That makes drug use a policy challenge, not an opportunity to take already weakened people and shove them through a meat grinder. It is high time to end the drug war.
Flag Flag Flag Flag Flag!!! American Apparel Shirt
Disagree with me? Well, Flag Flag Flag Flag Flag!!!!!
Hey, it's worked before, hasn't it?
Free Speech 4 Students T-Shirt
This shirt reacts to the “Bong Hits 4 Jesus” Supreme Court case in which students' right to utter controversial words were curtailed. In response, we offer “Free Speech 4 Students” in a colorful, bold fashion. This shirt is made ethically in the USA by American Apparel.
Free Speech is a Civil Right T-Shirt
Lately, free speech has been treated as if it were some kind of privilege, revocable by the government whenever it has some sort of overriding interest. But the funny thing is that the U.S. Constitution doesn't treat free speech as if it were a revocable privilege. Under the Constitution, Free Speech is a Civil Right. Remind everyone of this when you wear this freely speaking shirt out and about town.
Free Speech Zone T-Shirt
Don't let the Homeland Security goons tell you otherwise: the whole of America is a Free Speech Zone!
Gandhi: Then You Win (American Apparel Clothing)
Mohandas K. Gandhi said, “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.” Remember that when you are having a discouragingly difficult time in your struggle for what you believe is right.
I Heart Free Speech
Do you love free speech? Say so -- and then, the next time someone's ability to speak their peace is challenged, support their freedom out loud.
I Much Prefer Teal
I am NOT a Liberal Pinko! No, no, no! I much prefer Teal.
If You Aren't Bitter, You Haven't Been Paying Attention Shirt
Sure, Barack Obama just described a lot of Americans as "bitter." But it's true! There's so much to be bitter about, from the erosion of our liberty to the economy to the war and so much more... if you aren't bitter, you haven't been paying attention!
Imagine No TV
Television is the new opiate of the masses. It takes people who could create their own entertainment, and persuades them to sit and passively receive entertainment designed by people they have never and will never know. TV takes people capable of intelligent conversation, and teaches them never to talk back. Television convinces people to pay money for cable service so that they can sit through hours of commercial advertisements every day.
Imagine no TV. Imagine liberation.

I've Got a July 4, 1776 Mentality Pro-Constitution T-Shirt

On the back of this shirt: Protect American Liberty, Preserve the Constitution. Now that's real patriotism.

Punish the Supreme Court 4 Bong Hits 4 Jesus
Now that the Supreme Court has uttered the words “Bong Hits 4 Jesus” in connection with its opinion that students saying “Bong Hits 4 Jesus” should be punished, why hasn't the Supreme Court been similarly punished? That's the question this t-shirt poses.
Rosie: Feminist! (American Apparel Shirt)
Rosie the Riveter is with us today, and her updated, one-word summation of her previous position is clear: Feminist!
Statue of Liberty Liberal! Shirt
The Statue of Liberty has stood for American exceptionalism and idealism for well over a century. The idealistic values of America are liberal values. Show your pride as someone living in that tradition with this bold Liberal! shirt.

Thong Hits 4 Jesus T-Shirt
If you can't wear a Bong Hits 4 Jesus Shirt to school because your principal is stupid enough to think it's not a joke, but a serious pro-drug message, well, fine. Take out the Bong. Wear this Thong Hits 4 Jesus Shirt to school instead. It isn't advocating drug use, that's for sure. So what will your autocratic power-mad school officials come up with next? I mean, come on: we all know Jesus was celibate, and we all wear underwear, so what's the issue?
Those Who Count the Votes (Shirt)
"Those who cast the votes determine nothing. Those who count the votes determine everything.” So declared the totalitarian dictator Josef Stalin. Do we really want another Stalinist gulag state?

Remind your fellow citizens of the essential need for unrigged elections when you wear this cautionary shirt.
