Being naked sucks.
Not for you, but the people around you. You might be living the geek
dream, but a chubby belly, pale skin, and the muscle tone of a newborn
calve isn’t doing anything for the people who have to look at you.
That’s why t-shirts are good.
(bad example, she probably looks good without a t-shirt)
Nerds like shirts-with-funny-things-on-them like a fat kid likes
cake. I don’t know why; I’m not a psychologist (although I play one on
the Internet). But you can use that to your advantage. It’s might be
too late to order t-shirts online in time for Christmas, but I thought
I’d continue my Gift Guide for Geeks by taking a look at some of the best shirt choices on several popular websites.
If you’re a t-shirt addict, you might want to check out some of these fine blogs that are devoted to t-shirts: addic[tee]d, Preshrunk, iloveyourshirt, and tcritic. I’m only doing this for one post; they do this all the time.
On to the t-shirts!
The usual yada-yada: if you disagree with my picks, or you think I
missed something then leave a comment and I’ll update. There are no affiliate links in this post (//engtech is a hobby, not a business).
I only directly link to the product for Threadless and Etsy, because I
know they won’t break the link when my back is turned. Photos are from
the respective websites. Am I missing a good store? Tell me.
