lead pic theCHIVE is hiring an admin assistant
You heard right, theCHIVE is hiring an administrative assistant. What does that even mean? It takes a village to do what we do over here at CHIVE HQ and by some freak of nature, John and I were born with only two hands each and we can’t hold all these limes. It’s an incurable affliction that can only be remedied with a badass admin assistant.

The candidate must live within 20 miles of Venice Beach and no applicants will be considered outside of that. The job entails everything. To apply you must record a short video (less than 2 mins) and upload it to youtube, vimeo, youporn -wherever, and email a link to the video with resume to workatthechive[at]gmail[dot]com. Creativity will always be rewarded. Do not send a video file, it must be a link. If you do not make a video, you will not be considered. You have till midnight on Monday the 5th to submit your video. More info on the position HERE. Gerd lerk.

best kcco The Enhanced KCCOs, BFMs, and Hoodies are here!

Welcome to the big game, Chivers. As many of you know, last month we added a number of new enhancements to our KCCO’s and BFM’s including Gold Foil neck labels and QR Codes to the inside of the shirts. All in an effort to stay one step ahead of the massive KCCO fraud market.

Green KCCO’s available RIGHT HERE.

Bill Fucking Murray available RIGHT HERE.

And for the first time ever, KCCO Hoodies are available RIGHT HERE. Just in time for the cold weather, the inside of these custom hoodies are super-soft. It’s like wearing a hug.

And finally, the Portable KCCO Bag Boards have returned RIGHT HERE. Hand crafted by our dad, they are not only beautiful, but also the perfect tailgating game.

UPDATE: All sizes SOLD OUT.

chive on If theres a special need, were giving away the new, enhanced KCCOs right now

UPDATE: We have reached our vertical limit at this time on giveaway requests. Thanks to all those who sent in their emails. Stay tuned to theCHIVE for another opportunity to spread the love!



Tomorrow at Noon PST, the Enhanced KCCO’s and BFM’s will be available again for the first time in over a month. For all the new Chivers here, welcome to the big game.

Whenever we launch The Shirts, we always receive dozens of emails from Chivers requesting KCCO’s on behalf of friends who are sick, or often just totally down on their luck.

But as theCHIVE has grown so too have the volume of requests. We read heartbreaking stories everyday and we’ve come to recognize that, for many, the KCCO represents much more than a shirt. It’s something that reminds you to stay the course when you’re headed into surgery, it’s that neatly packaged shirt that arrives in your mailbox just in time to save the worst fucking day you’ve ever had.

I’ve learned that, in life, it’s the smallest things that make the biggest difference. With that in mind I’m to give away the enhanced KCCO’s away right now to Chivers who REALLY need them.

Email chiverygiveaway [at] gmail [dot] com right now on behalf of person who needs the KCCO. You must include their name, the reason, an address, and shirt size. You will not be charged. theCHIVE will assume all costs of the shirts, including shipping.

If you don’t absolutely need one, please wait until to purchase a shirt tomorrow, it’s your support that enables us to do this. I have not set a limit on the giveaway, but I’m going to give away quite a lot of them. I’ll stop when the accountants start screaming I guess.

KCCO,

John

kids kcco For the first time ever, Kids KCCOs and BFMs now available!

Over the past month, we’ve quietly kept a stock of pint-sized KCCO’s here at the office, mostly to send to our lil’ Chivers who get sick and need a little pick-me-up.

We’ve posted photos of the shirts a few times and received hundreds of emails from parents who want their kids to look better than the other children. To that end we’re making a small supply available today on theCHIVERY. If y’all like them, we might make more. If not, we’ll always keep a few around the place for when they’re needed…

Kids KCCO’s available RIGHT HERE.

Kids BFM’s available RIGHT HERE.

We also have Baby Onesies available right here. *WARNING* May cause intense parental jealousy in baby-off situations.

UPDATE: All sizes SOLD OUT.

 The Chive Halloween Line returns!

After Chiver at Heart sold out in under a minute during out last Halloween launch, we received hundreds of emails from Chivers who really (and I mean really) wanted to rock the shirt this Halloween. Thanks to our manufacturer for working long hours to make this relaunch possible.

The entire Chive Halloween Line is back, very briefly, RIGHT HERE.

Good luck and remember to scare the shit out of some children this Halloween.

The Military KCCO’s are making their second appearance right here on theCHIVERY today, albeit a brief one. Thanks to all our Canadian Chivers for your support for our little-site-that-could. There is something in the water up there, I swear, your Chivettes are getting better and better. Yes, a meetup in Canada is on our radar btw.

Because we think we actually have enough stock this time, you do not need to be a member of the Canadian military to score a shirt, but please limit 2 per order if you’re not. We’ve been getting emails from a lot of cadets who are purchasing for others, which is fine, we’ve extended the limit to 5 for you and everybody serving.

dave on wheels Dave on Wheels has slipped into a coma...

Chivers,

Last night, Dave on Wheels signed off the internet with the Tweet above and slipped into a coma.

Dave checked into the hospital last week after experiencing shortness of breath. Doctors suspected he might have pneumonia and their worst fears were confirmed a couple days ago.

It is with the heaviest of hearts that I’m writing to tell you that the family is making Dave as comfortable as possible right now, it appears we may be losing Dave.

Dave’s sister has written the complete story on Dave’s current condition on Dave’s blog. She thanks the Chivers for all their support and has requested that everybody follow her on Twitter for any future updates.

We noticed this morning that many Chivers were changing their Twitter user names by adding ‘On Wheels’ to the end of their handles, theCHIVE has followed suit.

We will continue to update you here as the information arrives. Our thoughts and prayers are with Dave and his family right now. Dave has survived two comas previously. Even though this one seems impossibly worse, nobody is ruling out a miracle and we continue hoping for Dave to pull through.

KCCO,

John n’ Leo

chive halloween feature theCHIVEs Halloween Line available right now!

Today on theCHIVERY, we’re launching our Chive Halloween Line. We have 4 new designs including the much-anticipated Chiver at Heart and Black Cat Saturday (check out what we made Mac wear right here)

These are (very) limited release shirts, good luck!

Chiver at Heart available right here.

Black Cat Saturday available right here.

Mummies available right here.

The hilarious Community Service right here.

UPDATE: Chiver at Heart sold out in under a minute. Yes, we’re reading your emails and we’ll try to make more and have another launch before Halloween.

add farrah A nice article about Farrahs story, theCHIVERS charitable nature, and the future of Chive Charities

I often receive emails from Chivers asking me to post more articles about theCHIVE. Sadly, I rarely grant interviews because I think mainstream media is a silly thing. But when Melanie Asmar from Westword expressed interest in writing about theCHIVE’s charitable nature and the future of Chive Charities, I hopped on the phone.

Read the article RIGHT HERE.

military and firefighter feature If theres a special need, were giving away Military and Firefighter KCCOs right now

Last Friday we announced that both Military and Firefighter KCCO’s will be made available this Thursday at 12pm PST, 3pm EST on theCHIVERY. Since the announcement, we’ve had dozens of emails from friends and wives of soldiers on deployment as well as injured soldiers/firefighters requesting the insanely elusive Chive shirts. The volume of special requests simply cannot be ignored.

We’re going to grant all of the requests right now, or as many as we can within reason. We know many soldiers are unable to hop online when the shirts are available. Let’s face it, the Wi-Fi in Afghanistan is dogshit.

Email chiverygiveaway [at] gmail [dot] com right now on behalf of person who needs the Firefighter/Military KCCO. You must include their name, the reason, an address, and shirt size. You will not be charged. theCHIVE will assume all costs of the shirts, including shipping. To many, Military KCCO’s are more than just a shirt. For those on deployment or in the VA hospital, it’s the small things that make a big difference.

I’m not placing a limit on the shirts, I’ll shut it down when my accountant calls and screams at me for the third time I guess. This is the internet honor system of course, so please wait until the big game on Thursday if you can afford one, it’s your support that enables us to do this. We’re about to lose our shirts on this idea, literally, and I really don’t care.

KCCO,

John

UPDATE: We’ve reached the outer limits of our requests and I’ve got to close it down. We hope these shirts help, we really do.

enhanced kcco The new, enhanced KCCOs and BFMs have returned!

After a nearly 2 months absence the new, enhanced KCCO’s and BFM’s are back in men’s and women’s sizes! To combat the massive KCCO counterfeit market, we’ve worked very hard making this subtle-but-awesome enhancements to the famous shirts. Now, recognizing an authentic KCCO is much easier.

These new KCCO’s and BFM’s now have a gold foil labels and custom QR codes on the inside of the shirt. This was actually quite costly but we are not raising the price of the shirts at all.

Green KCCO’s available RIGHT HERE.

Bill Fucking Murray available RIGHT HERE.

For the first time ever today, theCHIVE’s custom made Portable Cornhole Games are available with the Keep Calm and Chive On logo. Just in time for tailgating season, get them RIGHT HERE.

KCCO,

John n’ Leo

Men’s and Women’s Canadian KCCO’s have returned to theCHIVERY for about the next few minutes. I’d like to personally thank all our Canadian Chivers for being such enthusiastic people in general. I’m especially blown away by how many Canadian Chivettes we have out there. Do y’all grow on trees?

For the record, yes, I know we need a Canada Meetup; I still try to read every email that comes our way. We’re working on it although I have no idea which provice/city will get it, sound off.

Men’s and Women’s Canadian KCCO’s available RIGHT HERE.
