Inspired by Dean Esmay’s Idi Button, I have put together some apparel which I will, if I may be so bold, be calling my “Dictat” line of shirts. Really, this is a simple idea, based upon the ever popular, yet convincingly bold “Che” shirts. Reimagined here as a simple black and white cutout on “Communist Red” background, these shirts provide liberals and conservatives alike the chance to display their approval or disapproval of the brutal dictator or revolutionary they have chosen.
Without a doubt, these shirts will stir the storm of controversy. But we ask, is it the shirts that we revile or adore? Or is it the men depicted on these shirts that are the cause of such turmoil and strife? Are these representations fueling the debate and divide between radical political beliefs, or do they question and inform the viewing public? Are the shirts comfortable? We can only answer the last question, but that is with a resounding YES!
Made from a 40% cotton / 60% polyester blend with fabric softener sewn directly into the lining, these shirts will feel like a dictator’s finest uniform. But you don’t need a fussy coup d’tat to wear these babies. And they’re all preshrunk, so you don’t have to worry about looking like you’ve just spent the month hiding in a swamp from counterrevolutionaries!
We assure you the finest quality materials and packaging, made with care by our comrades in various gulags, bamboo prisons, sweat shops, cocaine dens, and other internment centers. Whether you wear a “Che” or a “Tito”, or even a “Saddam”, remember that what’s on the shirt is not what counts–it’s what’s in the shirt.
“Che” – our most popular shirt, features the striking visage of one of Cuba’s most beloved revolutionary. Comes in the following sizes: S, M, L, XL, XXL
“Saddam” – currently one of the ‘hot’ items, this shirt is a proud remembrance to this former Iraqi ruler before he fell to the American hegemony. Following sizes: S, M, L, XL, XXL

Wearing the “Dictat” line isn’t about prestige, money, or women. It’s not even about political ideology. It’s about comfort, classy fit, and killing/brutalizing those who you love.
