This US clothing brand name has a completely different meaning in Ireland

Impact Reduction Apparel is fine, don’t shorten it…

IMPACT REDUCTION APPAREL make athletic street gear.


The only problem is, the shortened their name to this.

Well, this is awkward. Hopefully they’re not too concerned with entering the Irish market any time soon.

We don’t think their street team going around sticking these on buildings would go down too well.
