Geek T-shirts aren’t just a fashion statement, they’re a way of life

The number of geeky t-shirts currently lining my closet is growing at a worrying rate. Where once there were sensible colours and plain designs mixed with the odd band t-shirt, now there are anime shirts, comic shirts, movie shirts and all manner of other geek culture apparel.

There is something very satisfying about seeing somebody else wearing a shirt proclaiming ‘ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US’, as I did recently while out shopping. You know the other person understands the need to geek out.

It’s like some secret Masonic handshake. A knowing nod is shared between wearers, their chests proclaiming ’42′ and ‘The Cake is a Lie’, and ‘Han Shot First’ and so on. It feels like your own exclusive little club, but in reality there are millions of us doing the same thing. That doesn’t make it any less awesome, though. Wear your geek credentials with pride!

You can wear your favourite anime t-shirts or movie quote shirts without making a huge statement, but it gives the rest of us a nice little thrill when we see our own kind out and about. It is a welcome reminder that we ain’t alone in our enthusiasm for these things.

The most well known outlet for geek t-shirts is undoubtedly ThinkGeek, where a bunch of mine are from (namely the ‘Geek’, ‘Practice Safe Hex’ and ‘All Your Base Are Belong To Us’ shirts so far). That place is a veritable treasure trove of pop culture and tech related apparel and tons of other stuff. They seem very fond of caffeine, so I like ‘em even more.

There are plenty of other places to find your essential shirts, and if you know where to look, you’ll find something to fit every fandom. Gamers, geeks and all the rest of us have been held down too long, and now we have our own fashion to drape across our glorious frames. You know something? We look damn good, too.
