Compassionates Products & Apparel

A local store, Compassionates Product & Apparel, opened recently with a mission to “live with compassion while raising awareness of a vegan lifestyle”. The grand opening was at a local VegFest and I had the pleasure of stopping by the booth. The booth had shirts, bags, stickers, koozies, and mugs available for purchase with words of compassion. After carefully looking through the options, I came away with a mug for my kitchen.  Check it their online shop to see the products offered, more will be added soon. Maybe they will be at your local VegFest.

Everything Vegan Unisex Tees, Righteous Apparel for Landlubbers of All Orientations

Ahoy you scallywags. Veganswashbuckler, aka Squashbuckler, has alit on terra firma once again, and I’ve brought me first mate John along for a joint review of some high Vegan fashion*.  Me old schooner is full of languorous, lewd laddies, but John is me best mate, and we’ve shared many a repast o’ seaweed at sea.  But today, we’re here for style, not vittles, and we’re sharing with ye our sentiments on Everything Vegan’s Unisex tees.

Product: I Yam What I Yam Unisex Tee and I’m Not Saying I’m Perfect but I am Vegan Unisex Tee

Overall Grade: A

Pros:

  • There be many varieties of message for any sort o’ Vegan ye can ponder. Ye got your ethical Vegans, your health Vegans, your environmental Vegans; whatever your reason for being Vegan, Everything Vegan has a shirt for you to proclaim it throughout the seven seas. Now ye don’t have to get that tattoo!
    • John’s translation: They’ve got lots of shirts for a variety of vegan-themed messages: ethical reasons, health reasons, environmental reasons, and, in my case, silly vegans.
  • Many shirts come in a variety of hues. Ye don’t like white? Get it in blue! Ye don’t like blue? Get it in green! Ye don’t like green? Stop being so picky or it’s off to the plank with ye!
    • John’s translation: Pick your color! Any color!
  • The shirts fit nicely and are quite pleasant on me delicate skin, and they’ll make ye look like a real haberdasher in those pantaloons ye plundered on your last pillage.
    • John’s translation: I threw it in the dryer to get a perfect fit
  • The folks at Everything Vegan don’t beat around the bush.  Everything they make be themed of the Vegan.  So when ye send them your money, they won’t be making tees for the corpsemunchers behind your back just to acquire a bit more treasure.
    • John’s translation: Yes, “corpsemunchers”

Cons:

  • We got no complaints. Be Vegan and be proud; check out their stash and I’m certain you’ll find a shirt that’s right for ye; otherwise, ye may have a mutiny on your hands.

Everything Vegan Racerback Tank Tops

We enjoy reviewing products from companies that are all vegan, but have mostly focused on companies that sell food. We are excited to post a blog today featuring a company that focuses on apparel that is vegan themed. We were approached by the founder of Everything Vegan to do a product review of apparel on the site*. When we checked out the website, we were so thrilled by the merchandise that we all wanted to buy a shirt and take part in the review. Therefore, we decided to break our review into to two blog posts. The post today is coming to you from regular bloggers, Julie and Amanda and will feature woman’s racerback tank tops. The second post will come from the Vegan Swashbuckler and guest blogger, John and will review unisex tees. Stay tuned for the next review, but in the meantime check out this site! We guarantee you will find a shirt style and design you like!

Product: Kale Racerback Tank Top and Your Bacon Had a Mom Racerback Tank Top

Overall Grade: A

Pros:

  • They have vegan shirt designs for every type of vegan. The variety includes animal rights themed designs, punny veggie designs, environmentally focused designs, and health related designs. There really is something for everyone.
  • They are reasonably priced.
  • Since we have known about the site, they have had sales to reduce prices even further. We were able to buy two and get one free! (we ended up buying 4 shirts total)
  • Shipping was very fast.
  • It’s fun and easy to choose your design, then select the type of shirt and color.
  • The shirts are soft and comfortable to wear.
  • The material is light and breathable. We tested our shirts in heat indexes over 100 F.
  • They have a variety of types of shirts: Women’s Jr Fit Tees, Women’s Classic Fit Tees, Unisex Tees, Unisex Sweatshirts, Women’s Racerback Tank Tops, and Unisex Tank Tops
  • In addition to shirts, they have hats and stickers.
  • We were sent a free sticker with our order.

Cons:

  • The sizing for the women’s racerback tank was a little confusing. The sizing is listed in 2 different places on the site (one on the Size Chart page and again on the FAQ page). There is a 1 inch discrepancy between the 2 size charts, so we just ordered based on our best guess. It worked out in the end, but was a little confusing.
  • The shirts run small. The large is the same size as most medium tank tops of other clothing brands. Make sure to measure and don’t guess on sizing.
