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!

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.

109 I love NY style t-shirts for you to love

by Andy on December 14, 2009


After the success and popularity of my previous list posts such at the 202 Star Wars t-shirts and robot lists (and of course the ridiculously meta list of t-shirt lists), I started saving up links of tees that fit into various categories, but there’s no point me just saving them up indefinitely, so it’s about time I started posting all these lists, most of them don’t quite breach the lofty barrier of more than 100 items in a list, but as they say, it’s not the size, it’s the amount of time Andy spent thinking up the metaphor.

As fasr as t-shirts go, few are more iconic than the design Milton Glaser created to help promote New York (the state, not just the city) back in the 70s. That design has gone on to be used in hundreds of different ways and become part of American pop culture, so it’s hardly surprising that the style has found it’s way onto more than a few t-shirts.

As ever with my list posts, THEY ARE NOT IN ANY RANKED ORDER, the numbers are merely there to keep track of the amount of tees in the list. I say this every time and no one seems to listen, it’s as if you skip the intro and move straight on to all the tees! Also, there are some affiliate linked shirts in there, so it’s possible I will earn money from people buying certain t-shirts on this list, but as I’ve listed just about as many as I could find, it’s hardly surprising that some of the companies have affiliate programmes. Some of the tees in the list are sold out already, and depending upon the success of this post some of them could become sold out in the future, but they could also be reprinted, so in many ways these tees are like Schroedinger’s cat before you click on the link. The list has been split into two pages to make things a little bit easier on my server, but please click through to the second page, because some of my favourites are on there and I think the list finishes pretty strongly, so they’re all worth checking out.

As ever, any exposure you can give to the list (stumble, tweet, delicious bookmark, blog post, digg, ill-considered full-back tattoo) will be greatly appreciated, and I’ll write up a thank you post with links back to everyone that helped in a couple of weeks. Now let’s go love some t-shirts!

Coty goes big with 101 tees for geeks

by Andy on August 17, 2009


It looks like other tee bloggers have decided that they’ve got nothing better to do than spend several monotonous hours putting together really long list posts, as demonstrated here by Coty with his long, long list of 101 t-shirts for scientists, geeks, and nerds. So, does this mean it’s game on in some kind of list war between me and the man from Hawaii? I really hope not… but I would win!

You know what, when I’m looking to buy a computer I wouldn’t start my research at a t-shirt blog; similarly, I don’t think you should go hunting for tees on a computing website. Still, despite some questionable choices, this list of 10 tee shops for geeks could be much, much worse.


I know that we’re makin great strides as an industry with this niche, but all too often clothing aimed at gamers, geeks, nerds, and other people that are a little disappointed when you tell them you don’t use Linux is just a bit terrible. Supercombo (who are something to do with Funkrush, which can only be a good thing) saw that problem, and decided to do their part in fixing it. The result is three tees (so far) that are a bit nerdy, and a bit awesome.
