When you start to pay attention, the men of the Irrelevant Society are everywhere. They are surfers, poets and lawyers; they are serving you your first coffee of the morning, riding their bike past you on the street and teaching your kids at school. They are ordinary men from all over Australia bound together because they stand with women against violence and are willing to wear their beliefs with conviction.
LIVING WITH RELEVANCE
At the Irrelevant Society we believe that how we live can and should match our values and our aim is to support men in finding more ways to live authentically. Twenty percent of our profits are donated to organisations that educate about and provide support to women facing violence, but more than that our hope is that our clothes will become tokens of a brotherhood united against violence; that they will be worn, gifted and passed down with conviction, style and pride.
At the Irrelevant Society we want to see an end to violence against women and though the road seems long we agree with Mr Mandela “It always seems impossible until it is done”.

WHY CLOTHING FOR MEN?
We wanted to recognise that whilst men are responsible for violence against women it is not all men, in fact not even most. Our aim is to provide opportunities for these men to speak up and to partner with women in ending violence.
