About Donkeyshines

The name Donkeyshines is derived from the phrase "monkeyshines" which means mischief or tomfoolery. Why replace the word "monkey" with "donkey"? Partly, it's because the two words look like they should rhyme but they don't, and we think that's kind of funny for some reason. More importantly, though, it's because we feel donkeys are an underappreciated animal, more intelligent and dignified than most people give them credit for. They are also known for their resistance to authority, which is sometimes mistaken for stubbornness. These donkey personality traits are the inspiration for our absurd, yet subtle t-shirt designs.

The Shirts

We consider the style and color of the shirt to be an important part of the design itself. Therefore, we choose our blanks with specific qualities in mind. As no single brand can meet all of our very particular needs, we use several different ones. Our criteria centers around garment softness, fit, and overall comfort. Equally important to us are ethical considerations. The brands we use are known for their progressive labor practices, ecological responsibility, and fair trade principles. If you have any questions about why specific brands or style are being used, please contact us at.
