Don’t buy a shirt from us today. Nope. Instead, go help designer Joe Kral out. He got in a bit of a pickle a month back with some kidney trouble, spent a week in the hospital getting back up to snuff, and left the joint $50,000 in the hole. Joe didn’t have insurance.

Please donate some hard-earned loot towards an amazing designer in a hell of a pinch. A little goes a long way. All proceeds from the DDC Merch sales today will go towards getting Joe “out of the red.” Help a brother out.

So wait, scratch the first statement of this morsel. Buy a shirt and help Joe.

Hey dickhead I’ve been busy and I just got time to read your May 18th post. Thanks for the shout and I’ll always be proud to hammer your fucking anvil.

And the price for a shirt sent to Singapore? I’m planning on sweating in it for a week and then sending it back. When are you visiting? I’ll fix up the maid’s room for ya.
