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.


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.


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

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?


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.


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.


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.


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.


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 S3E5 T-shirt Roundup

by Andy on January 6, 2009

filthypanda

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.

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.

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.

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.


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.


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.
