After putting out "Violence is Golden" and "Start the World" patches over the summer of 2015, I heard several stories about people recognizing my patches in different areas of the country and then starting conversations about the themes in my work. My background is in art, and I've always enjoyed designing my own book covers, logos and products for other people, so I decided to launch BRUTAL Company as a brand to help spread ideas that are important to me and many of my readers.
Once I finally get my new book Becoming a Barbarian finished (2 more chapters left...) I'm planning on producing more podcasts and YouTube videos with some of the many highly skilled and accomplished men who have contacted me over the past few years. Having some merchandise available for readers/listeners/viewers to purchase will give them a way to help support the production of this free content in which they actually get something -- instead of just donating to a tip jar (which is also cool).
Instead of pricing things lower and then setting up some kind of shipping hierarchy, all prices currently include domestic shipping and handling costs. Additional shipping charges will be calculated for international orders during checkout.
