While the fledgling experiment of democracy is still fledgling, the Portland, Oregon-based company has expanded their line of irreverent and humorous wears. Aside from an update on that particularly ominous theme, these hand-dyed printed shirts extol the tough-guy Abe Lincoln and the need for some domestic humanitarian intervention.
âOur shirts are intended to be thought provoking, without provoking a fight,â reads the site's introduction.
Each shirt is hand-dyed on an American Apparel t-shirt that's guaranteed to be sweatshop free, if not a little sweaty. That's how it is at Klaus Industries, headquartered in the industrial outskirts of Portland. Like the soap company in "Fight Club," âexcept 70 percent less homoerotic.â
Also, a dollar is donated from every shirt to Kiva, a website that links lenders with entrepreneurs in the developing world.
