According to Indie Minded this tee is new at Split Reason, but it must have been a big hit because it’s already sold out in medium and large, so sorry about missing that one. Not sure I’d actually want to wear it but it’s certainly a cool concept.

Post image for 604Republic launch ‘The Geekout’ to entice geeks with pictures AND words

604Republic do a great job of snapping up designs and producing geeky tees that don’t patronise or rely on the joke too much, they’re always well designed with quality artwork and I respect them for that rather than going the fast & cheap method of random mashups that rely on an impulse buy rather than real quality.

In an effort to differentiate themselves further from other pop culture inspired t-shirt companies they’ve launched ‘The Geekout‘. This is essentially a blog, but it’s all completely unrelated to t-shirts, just lots of fun and original content that people who like their shirts will probably like. What impresses me about it is that it’s all original stuff, there’s now memes in there and it’s genuinely enjoyable to read, if I could work out a way to add it to my RSS feeds I would, but being a fan of their on Facebook should be enough for now to ensure I don’t miss an update.


I usually roll my eyes when someone goes big on a site like Kickstarter or IndieGoGo with their clothing line because it often seems to be due to them not thinking everything through and plucking a number out of the air. However, I don’t feel that is the case with 604Republic, Sebastian, the brand founder, has been around the block a few times and know what he’s doing when it comes to t-shirts, so when he aims for getting $20,000 in funding I know that he’s serious.

They’re trying to fund 20 new nerdy designs to go in the store. If you check out their IndieGoGo page you’ll see the designs (three of them can be seen above) and notice that quite a lot of them have been featured on daily t-shirt sites like TeeFury and RIPT, which makes this a great way to pick up any designs that you forgot to pull the trigger on in the past, and I think that the designs will find a great home at 604Republic.

They’ve got a couple of months to hit their $20,000 target but it would be great to see them get some solid early support from you guys to help get them off you a great start.


nerd army t-shirt

Really liking the style of the latest shirt from Social Fabrik. As is often the case I haven’t actually heard of the designer, Hammo (aka Nick Hamilton), but now that I have I’ll be sure to keep an eye out for if he releases tees with SF and elsewhere in the future. Here’s a bit of background on the designer:

Hammo’s distinctive pieces, influenced by a childhood filled with superheroes & comic books, are recognisable by their bold lines and razor sharp attention to detail. They are often also characterized by evidence of his unhealthy obsession with cityscapes, robots and rubble.

Hammo works across a wide range of media including digital illustrations, painted canvasses & murals, many of which are be seen in various locations around Manchester & beyond, as well as his work for clients such as Playstation, K-Swiss and Diesel.

Pretty impressive!

code of arms t-shirt

Three new funny t-shirts from SnorgTees

by Andy on October 13, 2011


I would regard myself as being something of a nerd, I run several websites (including ones you don’t know about, they’re boring, and one you will know about soon), I have compiled my own PHP, and I get excited browsing WordPress themes, but even I wouldn’t walk around wearing a t-shirt with a CAPTCHA code on it.

All three shirts are $14.95 this week only, after which they’ll be $19.95 at snorgtees.


portal t-shirt

Haynes manual style designs are always a bit of fun, especially when they’re referencing something very futuristic like a gun from Portal.

a better tomorrow geek t-shirt

I wonder if the message in the speech bubble means anything, that would be cool. I put it into a binary translator and nothing came up that was legible, but I may have been doing it wrong, as I am not geeky enough to understand binary!

€22 Buy it at A Better Tomorrow (only available until 07/02/11)


mario kuribo's shoe t-shirt

I was looking at this tee thinking to myself “why do I know this tee, and why do I know what is that’s been exploded in the diagram?” after a few minutes it struck me, Coty had written about this tee, and the rare Mario Bros. power-up item it represents. If you knew that just by looking at it, bravo Sir (or madam, but probably Sir), and if not don’t worry, that’s perfectly normal. Very cool looking tee though, what is it about technical diagram tees that make me post them every time I see one?

“Keep Calm and Geek On” by 604Republic

keep calm and geek on

Keep Calm, now there’s a meme that I could make an epic list out of!

And yeah, 604Republic are an advertiser on HYA (space available!), but this tee is too cool for me not to mention just because I feel guilty posting my advertisers even though I’m sure you guys don’t mind.

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?


A t-shirt for nerds at Instant Classic

nerd t-shirt

I find the acronym to be a bit of a stretch, but I really like the style of this shirt, and yes, I saw it and was initially reminded of this shirt by Threadless, but then when I actually looked at it, they really aren’t all that similar.

iJustine wearing a nerdgasm of a shirt

ijustine wearing a mario t-shirt

I’m probably not using the word ‘nerdgasm’ right in the title, but then again it’s not really a word, so hopefully you’ll get the gist. Anyway, how amazing is that shirt, looks like something a 10 year-old would wear, but I felt compelled to wear it after spotting it on Hot Girls Wearing T-shirts, a blog which posts exactly what you think it does. I’ve got no idea where the shirt can be bought, anyone?
