Dirtbag Clothing is a San Francisco-based apparel company, founded in 1996. Dirtbag manufactures various styles of apparel, including streetwear, punk clothing, urban clothing, hoodies, flexfits, women's tee-shirts, baby dolls, and accessories. The company's business model relies heavily on internet sales and marketing. Dirtbag was projected to reach $1.4 million in sales as of 2004.


Dirtbag Clothing was founded by partners Douglas Canning and John Alves during their final year as film majors at San Francisco State University. Instead of starting with a catalog like most apparel companies, Canning began with a website. From there, he went to the websites of independent record labels to get email addresses for bands that would fit his demographic and offered a 40% discount on those willing to wear their merchandise.  Recently, Dirtbag launched a new music site www.dirtbagmusic.com which allows bands to upload and sell exclusive content such as video, mp3's, tickets and merchandise.

In October 2008, Dirtbag re-launched its clothing site www.dirtbagclothing.com and added industry veteran Jim Stroesser as CEO. Jim has had executive stints at Pony, Oakley,and Nike. In November 2008 Dirtbag will be launching a secure wholesale site. Dirtbag will be offering a wide variety of tee shirts, hats, hoodies, flexfit hats. Dirtbag will offer over 50 SKUs of punk and urban clothing.


Dirtbag had sales of approximately $1 million in 2002, half coming through online purchases. As of 2004, Dirtbag's revenues were projected at $1.4 million.


Dirtbag sponsors includeperformers and bands in the metal scene, including Slipknot, Fear Factory, Jerry Cantrell, Drowning Pool, Shadows Fall, Black Label Society, Brand New Sin, Machine Head, Papa Roach, and Hinder.
