Even though they’re in the midst of their biggest sale ever at BustedTees with just about every shirt being $12 or less they’re still releasing four new shirts. As you can probably tell from the title I’ve got the Gotham Rogues, Obama and Reynholm Industries shirts figured out, but that Frigid Flakes one has me confused, anyone feel like clearing it up for me?

Oh, and remember to use the coupon code SANDYCLAUS to make the saving.

it crowd t-shirt

I was saddened to hear that there will be no more series of The IT Crowd coming to our screens. That’s not just because writing about IT Crowd t-shirts every night was so beneficial to HYA in terms of traffic and growing awareness of the site (largely thanks to Graham Linehan tweeting about my roundups), but because I really enjoyed it, I wouldn’t have sat through every episode and spent hours searching for each t-shirt Roy wore if I didn’t think it was a good show. Still, I believe there’s going to be a Christmas special (maybe more than one) so let’s just look forward to that. Pretty cool shirt from RedBubble too.

frequently asked questions about time travel t-shirt

Before I write any more, I want to point out that I am well aware that ‘dice’ is the plural, and ‘die’ is the singular, but “where did this very nerdy die t-shirt come from” sounds and looks wrong, and people seeing the headline wouldn’t immediately know what I was talking about, so I went with dice in the hopes that more people would see this post and help find the tee… and I really enjoy getting pedantic comments from geeks.

A few months back I caught the second half of a film called Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel (good film, incidentally) and in it I noticed a couple of t-shirts, the orange one on the left here, worn by Chris O’Dowd, aka Roy from The IT Crowd, that was something to do with recycling, and the one I’m far more interested in on the right, worn by Marc Wootton.

Unfortunately the picture is a bit shaky because I was watching it in a dark room, grabbed my point-and-shoot off the desk, and quickly took a snap thinking it would be easy to find. I don’t know if I’m just using the wrong search terms, but I simply cannot find the shirt anywhere, do any of you guys know where to find a multi-sided die with a pair of crossbones underneath it?

the IT crowd t-shirts

Unless I’m very much mistaken this is the last episode of the season, it is unfortaunate how British series tend to have shorter runs than their American counterparts (22 episodes in a typical full season?), because it’s nice having something on British TV to look forward to each week other than Top Gear or football, and because The IT Crowd has meant a lot of people have been visiting HYA, and the more people that visit here the more likely it is that I can turn writing about t-shirts into a full-time job, which is pretty ridiculous, but hey, someone’s got to do it. Actually, they don’t, but it is a lot of fun so I’d like to carry on.

If you missed the show on Friday night it is available on Channel 4OD, but I’ve always found that site to not be so friendly to my PC, so I was happy to find the whole show streamable on the Channel 4 YouTube page. I’m not sure if the YouTube stuff has the same 1 week expiry as the main 4OD site, so that video might disappear by Friday, and chances are it’s geo-locked too, so if you’re outside the UK you’d have to get a bit creative if you wanted to watch it.

All my waffling in the previous couple of paragraphs probably suggested something to you, this episode was not stuffed full of t-shirts, in fact it didn’t contain much of Roy at all, unsurprisingly focusing upon Reyholm. Still, Roy did wear one t-shirt in the show, one which probably made a lot of people sitting at home think “I wonder if our IT guy does that?” because Roy’s tee stated “I read your e-mail” in a style so simple that it was immediately recognisable as a shirt from ThinkGeek. The shirt costs from $15.99 and you can buy it at ThinkGeek.

the it crowd t-shirts

Well, just one shirt in this episode, and one that Roy has worn in the past too, so it was a pretty easy find. Good episode though, loads of one liners, I especially liked Roy complaining about “have you tried turning it off and on again?” being some kind of catchphrase for him, and Moss shouting “we’re going to die!” after finding out that the robot was running on Vista.

I think that this is one of my favourite t-shirts that’s been on The IT Crowd, it’s geeky, it’s non-sensical, and it’s genuinely funny, so I guess that in a way it’s a bit like The IT Crowd! The blue shirt with the whale on it is by Dinosaur Comics and can be bought from TopatoCo for $17.50 + shipping.

For a little bit of an extra to go with this shorter than usual post, a commenter on the last IT Crowd post shared a link to a cool page on the Channel 4 website showing the IT Crowd basement with loads of tagged items from the set, definitely worth checking out if you’re a fan.

*Welcome to everyone that’s visiting because of @Glinner tweeting about the site, be sure to take a look around, check out the older IT Crowd posts (I’ve covered just about every episode of the last few seasons) and I’m also running a competition to win $100 of clothing from JackThreads that you may want to enter.

The IT Crowd t-shirts Series 4 Episode 4

As a side note before we get into the traditional meat of The IT Crowd t-shirt roundups, after listening to Pirate FM in Cornwall when I was on holiday me and my girlfriend were inspired to watch The Boat That Rocked a film inspired by the pirate radio station Radio Caroline that operated from a boat (it was in international waters and therefore not governed by British law). I was under the impression that Pirate FM was the legit ‘child’ of Radio Caroline, but I actually completely wrong. Still, it’s a good, funny film, and I thought I’d mention it because Chris O’Dowd and Katherine Parkinson (Roy & Jen in the IT Crowd) are both in the film, so you guys may want to check it out.

Anyway, on with the show (almost literally), the first tee worn by Roy was just a plain grey shirt, naturally, I’m not going to track down the brand, if you want to be just like Roy go and get a grey shirt from Primark or American Apparel.

The second shirt had already been found for me by @RustyBransteinX which did make my job rather a lot easier. The OMFG t-shirt comes from ThinkGeek and the acronym is for the little-known Ontario Mega Finance Group the investment company that lots of teenagers apparently enjoy talking about. The t-shirt is $15.99 and it can be purchased here.

it crowd tshits s4e4t3b 480x270 The IT Crowd T Shirts: Season 4 Episode 4 Italian For Beginners

Roy’s third shirt of the evening was a bit more troublesome to hunt, and not just because of Roy’s hot girlfriend being on view. It was a dark scene, but after taking about a dozen pictures and playing with the levels on them I managed to make out the writing “don’t even think about tagging me” which is actually pretty good advice for those people that think it’s fun to tag photos on Facebook of their friends in compromising positions.The tee is available from Balcony Shirts for £12.50. As I do try to be a bit of a completist with these things, I had a quick look around for the other tee in this pic, the one with the crossed guitars worn by the orphan. I haven’t been able to find the same tee, but I have found what I think is the same graphic on an apron at Spreadshirt, and with it being spreadshirt to can customise these thing to your heart’s delight, and that includes putting the design on a pink t-shirt with black print.

it crowd tshits s4e4t4a 480x270 The IT Crowd T Shirts: Season 4 Episode 4 Italian For Beginners

Fourth tee of the night was easily recognised as Roy has worn it before, “Nothing is any good if other people like it” is a Diesel Sweeties design. However, I can’t find the shirt anywhere in their store, so it seems as if they’ve stopped selling it. Still, there’s plenty of other cool shirts in their shop. Also, how good was this scene? There isn’t nearly enough mashed potato based comedy on TV.

And that’s your lot for this episode, I will post episode 5 tomorrow, and then you can expect the episode 6 recap (last episode of the season, sob) early next week.

IT Crowd t-shirts

Indeed, last night something did happen, Graham Linehan (aka @Glinner) tweeted about my IT Crowd t-shirt posts, which was then retweeted by rather a lot of people, causing what I think is the largest amount of traffic I’ve received on a Sunday, giving the site a bit of a meltdown (until I got home and cranked up the resources), and presumably putting a bit of pressure on me to continue my IT Crowd shirt posts now that a lot more fans are aware of them. Fear not new readers, I shall continue, and this week I’ve got links to all three of Roy’s tees so that you can get your hands on them.

Roy’s first tee of the week was immediately obvious to me as I had written about it back in May. Even though the most visible text says “let’s say you’ve gone back in time” the shirt is actually called “Time Traveler Essentials” because it explains what you need to do if you were to travel back in time. It’s a very clever and funny shirt, and it’s yours for $18 at TopatoCo.

DSCF0355 Medium 480x360 The IT Crowd T shirts: Season 4 Episode 3 Something Happened

Shirt number two in the episode is a bit of a tee design classic, having been featured on the show before and on many a blog. Some people have point out that it doesn’t really work as a Venn diagram, but I’m able to look past that and just enjoy a cool shirt. Elitism can be bought for $16.99 at Diesel Sweeties.

DSCF0357 Medium 480x360 The IT Crowd T shirts: Season 4 Episode 3 Something Happened

Last shirt of the week (excluding Jen’s shirt for the band Sweet Billy Pilgrim, who I presumed were fictional since I don’t keep up with what’s cool in the music world, but are in fact real, though apparently don’t have a keyboard player) picks up on the keyboard cat meme, but makes it almost acceptable in my cynical eyes by giving it an 8-bit makeover, since we all know that making something 8-bit makes it cool. The tee is £16.21 and can be purchased at MySoti.

I won’t be able to cover episodes 4 & 5 of this season in a timely fashion because I’m going to Cornwall on holiday, and writing about t-shirts will be the furthest thing from my mind. I will cover the shirts worn in the episodes when I get back, you’ll just have to be patient about it.

it crowd t-shirts

A very fine episode of The IT Crowd this week I felt, apologies that it’s taken me a week to post aobut it, but good things come to those who wait… mostly, because I haven’t been entirely successful in finding the tees featured in the episode, but hopefully people reading this and fniding it via search engines will be able to help out. The pics for this post are a bit weak because I was just taking shots of my TV screen, but you can all still tell what’s what so I’m sure it won’t matter too much.

The first tee of this episode has actually been on the show in the past (season 2, episode 5), I didn’t know where to buy it then and I still don’t now unfortunately. Help a guy out in the comments?

DSCF0292 Vga 480x360 The IT Crowd T shirts: Season 4 Episode 2 The Final Countdown

Second tee of the week was fairly easy, as it was featured last week during the season opener. I thought I’d give Roy back some of his dignity and not post a pic of him wearing the shirt whilst sat on the toilet (as if being a window cleaner wasn’t enough!). Buy the Ring t-shirt for £19 at Dark Bunny Tees.

DSCF0293 Vga 480x360 The IT Crowd T shirts: Season 4 Episode 2 The Final Countdown

Third tee of the week was an easy one for me, not because I knew where it came from, but because someone on Twitter found it for me, brilliant. It’s a pretty funny tee, I’d never seen any ROFL=Rolf jokes on the internet before, but I bet we’ll be seeing them around in the future off the back of this. Buy the ROFL t-shirt from RedBubble for £14.81.

DSCF0294 Vga 480x360 The IT Crowd T shirts: Season 4 Episode 2 The Final Countdown

I struck out with this Metallica parody t-shirt with the Statue of Liberty on it. Any ideas? I think that the text says ‘infectedur’ or something like that, Google is turning up nothing.

DSCF0295 Vga 480x360 The IT Crowd T shirts: Season 4 Episode 2 The Final Countdown

Fifth tee in this episode was quickly recognisable, since it was created by one of the people that has been on HYA since the early days, Enclothe. The shirt is called ’451′ and is of course a reference to the book Farenheit 451, or possibly just a reference to the point at which paper burns. Either way, something is being set on fire. Buy the firefighter t-shirt from Enclothe for $20.

DSCF0296 Vga 480x360 The IT Crowd T shirts: Season 4 Episode 2 The Final Countdown

The last t-shirt this week was one I hadn’t seen before, but was fairly willing to bet was a ThinkGeek design, and whaddya know? I was right. You can buy the “I don’t work here” t-shirt that Roy wore from ThinkGeek for $15.99.

The IT Crowd t-shirts Series 4 Episode 1

Took me a little bit longer to get around to watching the show than I expected, what with the Brussels trip and all, but it was a good episode to open this fourth series of The IT Crowd, not amazing but a enough laugh out loud moments to keep me happy and looking forward to the next episode.

The first tee from the episode can be seen at the top of this post, it says “NO.” and it’s from Think Geek. It’s not exactly the best tee in the world, but I presume that there’s quite a lot of people in IT departments across the world that wear tees from ThinkGeek, so there’s a nice nod towards realism there. If you’d like to express the word “NO.” emphatically on a t-shirt, the tee is $15.99 and you can buy it here.

ITCrowdS4E1T2 The IT Crowd T shirts: Series 4 Episode 1
It was pretty easy to work out where the second tee was from, since I’d been tweeted about it days before. The shirt is based on The Ring, the Japanese version presumably, not the not-quite-as-scary American version. It can be purchased from Dark Bunny Tees for £19, but be quick because they’ll only sell 100 of them and then it’s gone, and judging by the amount of people that visit HYA looking for IT Crowd shirts, it might be gone fairly soon.

ITCrowdS4E1T3 The IT Crowd T shirts: Series 4 Episode 1
The last tee of the night was a riff on the familiar “Home Taping Is Killing Music” graphic that has been around since the music industry became afraid of people. There are a lot fo designs around based on this image, but I’m fairly sure that this t-shirt from 8ball is the same one as in the show, and you can pick it up for £17.50 (and not just in olive).

I wonder who will turn up next week!

Philly’s finest are at it again, well, finest after Art In The Age, obviously, and this time, they’re saving the planet with a t-shirt that has a bike on it!

The cotton is 100% organic, and the ink is environmentally-friendly too, so you will be even more justified in feeling superior to people when you’re biking around town whilst they’re trying to mow you down in their cars.

roy it crowd t-shirts

Regular fans will be aware that in the past I’ve tried my darnedest to let you know what t-shirts Roy has worn in The IT Crowd, the Channel 4 geek comedy written by Graham Linehan, who was responsible for Father Ted. In fact, it’s fairly likely that some of you reading wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for the IT Crowd, since HYA has become one of the best destinations to find out what tees have been worn by shirt-loving Roy on a weekly basis.

The show returns to TV screens on Friday June 25th, I’m actually going to be away next weekend in Brussels so I’ll miss it, but fortunately it is already available to watch online at Channel 4′s site, so I’ll bring you a roundup some time next week, but for now I’ll tease you with this screencap sent to me from a rather excited Dark Bunny Tees.

The IT Crowd S3E5 T-shirt Roundup

by Andy on January 6, 2009

filthypanda 480x271 The IT Crowd S3E5 T shirt Roundup

The last two IT Crowd posts of this current series are a bit late because of the Christmas break, and because I didn’t actually expect C4 to broadcast new episodes during the festive season, presuming that they’d have “Top 100 Christmas Moments” or something like that running in the 9pm Friday slot. Unlike my poor show for tee coverage on the 4th episode of this series (which has now had the blanks filled in by readers – love you guys!), I’ve managed to find all of them this time around… huzzah!

The tee at the top of this post is called Filthy Panda and is available from Genki Gear for £15 (mens, womens), or you can get the size XL at Play.com for £10 with free delivery.

itcrowd wecanlive 480x264 The IT Crowd S3E5 T shirt Roundup

The second tee of the week was from someone you see fairly regularly on HYA, Amorphia Apparel. The t-shirt is obviously a reference to the Alien franchise, and can be yours for the low price of $12.49 if you visit this link.

laughthisofftwinkletoes 480x344 The IT Crowd S3E5 T shirt Roundup

The last tee that Roy wore in episode five was pretty easy to find to be honest, all I needed to do was Google “Laugh this off twinkletoes” and I found out that this tee was related to a comic produced by 2000AD. Finding somewhere that had the design on sale was rather more troublesome. It isn’t available at Amazon, Play, or a number of other smaller retailers, and it is only available in size small in the official 2000AD shop. I guess it’s entirely possible that they’ll reprint the twinkletoes tee after the exposure it has been given by the show, but I’m afraid that unless you’re a small guy, you’re out of luck.

The IT Crowd: S3E4 FAIL!

by Andy on December 18, 2008

pict1111 480x381 The IT Crowd: S3E4 FAIL!

I have sad news to report friends, after a few good weeks writing about this seasons IT Crowd episodes, I’m afraid this week is a bit of a failure. After spending a while trying to work out where Roy’s tees came from (which is why this post is a few days late compared to usual), I’ve only managed to find one of the three tees.

The first tee worn by Roy in the episode (pic at the top of this post) had a bit of a Japanese feel to it, seeing as it has some Asian looking text on it and what looks like a series of characters beneath it. I don’t even know where I’d start looking for this tee, so I throw myself open to your suggestions.

pict1106 480x604 The IT Crowd: S3E4 FAIL!

The second is pretty easy, in theory, it’s a design with a slogan of some kind on it, usually I just have to Google that, and voila, I remain “that guy who find The IT Crowd shirts.” Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to work out what the slogan says, I’m pretty sure that the final word being said by the character is ‘time’, but that isn’t much help without the rest of it. It has the look of a webcomic style t-shirt, so maybe someone out there might be aware of which webcomic it is, and then I’ll have some breadcrumbs to follow and hunt it down.

pict1105 1 480x335 The IT Crowd: S3E4 FAIL!

I’m glad that it was the last tee in the show that I managed to find, because then you’ll go away from this post thinking “sure, that sucked a bit, but at least he found one,” instead of, “dammit Andy, you’re such a loser, and you keep forgetting to link to things in blog posts!”

The Overlook Hotel, for those of you who arewondering why Roy would be promoting a hotel instead of his usual geek-chic, is the hotel in The Shining. The tee is available from Last Exit to Nowhere and costs £17.50.

pict1112 480x360 The IT Crowd: S3E4 FAIL!

Something else I noticed in the show was that Roy appears to be a fan of a blog called “Why, That’s Delightful” which is of course (of course!) written by the show’s writer and creator Graham Linehan. Except, he was actually looking at something else.

theitcrowds3e3t shirtroundup 480x359 The IT Crowd S3E3 T shirt Roundup: Damn these electric sex pants!

From watching the show, I had presumed that this weeks tee scavenger hunt for The IT Crowd was going to be a tough one, but in reality I managed to hunt down both of the t-shirts Roy wore in the episode.

If you haven’t seen the show, you’re probably wondering why there is a topless man at the top of this post. Well, I don’t want to give away the plot, but Roy ends up shirtless for quite lot of the show, which is probably great for those of you that are into not-particularly-toned Irishmen (not that I’m anything to write home about!).

pict1099 480x394 The IT Crowd S3E3 T shirt Roundup: Damn these electric sex pants!

The first tee Roy wore in the episode was this white shirt with a number of small hand drawn graphics on it and the text “a series of tubes” written underneath. Any geek worth their salt, knows what that’s a reference to, and for those of you that don’t, it’s a quote from corrupt former-Alaskan Senator Ted Stevens, who was explaining net neutrality to the Senate. The tee is by Think Geek, costs $9.99 (though as it is on its ‘last chance’, it probably won’t be reprinted, so be quick) and can be bought here.

pict1104 479x351 The IT Crowd S3E3 T shirt Roundup: Damn these electric sex pants!

Roy then went off being all topless and stuff and we didn’t see him wearing another tee until the closing credits in which he was struggling to wrestle his jacket off an elderly woman. The was a quick shot in which I got a good look at the tee, which had the words Ludovico Technique written on it. The Ludovico Technique is of course the “fictitious drug-assisted aversion therapy from the novel and film A Clockwork Orange.” A quick google told me that the tee came from British label Last Exit To Nowhere, costs £17.50 and can be purchased here.

it crowd s3e2 pixelated kermit t shirt3 The IT Crowd Season 3 Episode 2: Kermit, Japanese schoolgirls & Firefighters

Episode 2 was a bit tougher than the season opener because of that damned pixelated Kermit the Frog tee, but I did find it eventually, so all is good. Pretty funny episode too, I loved that when I was in the pub on Sunday watching the Arsenal game (between furious bouts of shopping in Manchester) we came scarily close to having the same football conversation as they did in the show, even though none of the people I was with watch The IT Crowd.

Anyway, back to the matter at hand, the pixelated/censored Kermit the Frog ‘Witness Protection Program’ t-shirt is made by Chunk, who do lots of retro/pop culture tees, but it isn’t available on their website. I’ve only been able to find it for sale at Urban Outfitters for the rather ludicrous price of £28. I was about to go on a rant about UO and their prices now, but I’ve just noticed that Chunk sell other Witness Protection tees (with characters like Batman & Superman on them) on their own site for £24.95, so I can’t get too annoyed with ‘hipster mecca’ this time around.

it crowd s3e2 battle royale t shirt6 The IT Crowd Season 3 Episode 2: Kermit, Japanese schoolgirls & Firefighters

Next up was a tee that I recognised immediately, as it is a bit of a classic in the world of indie tees. The t-shirt with the Japanese schoolgirl getting shot on it is an homage to Battle Royale, the fantastic, and fantastically violent Japanese film, and is made by Airside. The tee is also worn by Roy in Channel 4′s press material for the show. This one will set you back £24.95, which is pretty much par for the course in Britain, sorry Americans. Buy it here.

it crowd s3e2 red t shirt The IT Crowd Season 3 Episode 2: Kermit, Japanese schoolgirls & Firefighters

The third and final tee that Roy wore on the show was one I already knew about as well, which probably suggests that I do spend a bit too much looking at t-shirts, as I knew that those firefighters were the work of Derek over at Enclothe. It’s nice to see a friend of the blog getting some great exposure on a TV show watched by millions of people here in the UK. The tee is called 451, which is a reference to Fahrenheit 451 (I think), and I’m not sure if it was intentional, but the idea of a guy who works in IT wearing a t-shirt about the temperature that paper/books burn at is very cool. It costs $19 and can be bought here.

pict1000 large 480x360 The IT Crowd is back, and Roy still loves geeky tees!

Friday night saw the return of Graham Lineham’s excellent ‘The IT Crowd‘ for it’s third season. Over the past few seasons I think I may well have enjoyed all the geeky in-jokes, references and props more than the storylines and acting (though I still enjoy that too), and it seems that this year is no exception as the IT department has had a makeover that seems to involve even more stickers than the back of my laptop.

pict1003 large 480x360 The IT Crowd is back, and Roy still loves geeky tees! elitismdiagram600 480x160 The IT Crowd is back, and Roy still loves geeky tees!

Following on with a grand tradition, I Sky+’d the episode (though forgot to record the HD version) so that I could go back and chronicle the tees Roy wore in S3E1. The first one was really easy, I’d actually already spotted it in the advert. It’s a bit of a classic in the indie tee world, “Musical Elitism Venn Diagram Shirt (Music I Used to Like)” by Diesel Sweeties, who I noticed also have an ‘I [screw] robots’ sticker lurking in the background too.

pict1007 large 480x360 The IT Crowd is back, and Roy still loves geeky tees! 1130p 0c zoomb 480x280 The IT Crowd is back, and Roy still loves geeky tees!

The second was a bit harder, a black and orange tee where you never really got a decent look at the design. I was about you give up hope when I noticed that there was a shot taken from behind Roy’s head that revealed a J!NX logo on the neck of the tee, which actually made it very easy to find the tee. It’s called “The Cake is a Lie,” which is a statement that left me slightly perplexed, so I Googled it as they suggested, and now I get it. What? You thought I was going to explain it to you?

So, not exactly a huge amount of tee-sleuthing to be done this week, a nice gentle starter I guess, let’s see what comes up next week in episode 2. There’s not too much else in the gallery, just a few shots from different angles, but I figure that since I’ve taken the pictures I might as well upload them.

rsz it 1 Send your tees to some TV guy, become famous!

Remember how I became mildly obsessed with writing about and hunting down the t-shirts that were featured in the Channel 4 comedy show The IT Crowd? Well, series three has been written, and now the producers want public help in dressing the set with large amounts of geeky goodness.

How would you like to help in designing the look of series 3? Specifically, you’d be helping us choose the stuff that litters the main set. I’m talking about posters, comics, fanzines, T-shirts… anything you’ve seen in the last few months that you think is pretty cool or captures the spirit of the show or a particular character. By now, most of you know the kind of things I like…weird toys, indie comics, sci-fi, geek references, internet memes, boardgames…normally I’d delight in tracking down the stuff myself, but as I say, it’s just not going to happen this time round.

In the very first draft of the show I described the set as looking like “a cross between a comics shop and the batcave”. I wanted it to feel like a geek Shangri-La, and in each series I’ve felt we nearly got there. Maybe this time, with you guys involved, we’ll finally nail it.

There are loads of suggestions for what should be in the office on the BoingBoing post where this whole thing originated at (BB Cory is a consultant on the show, I think), but I’m sure a few of you tee designers/sellers might fancy seeing your tees up on screen. The show is pretty popular in the UK, and I get a surprisingly large amount of traffic from people searching for IT crowd shirts, so it could actually end up being fairly profitable for you if you were to end up on the show.
