Geek Apparel – T-shirts, Hats, and Boxers

Today we are presenting the latest collection of geek related t-shirts from my closet.  This time around I’ve included some baseball caps and even one pair of new boxers.  For past entries featuring geek apparel, please click here.  These shirts are all fairly recent acquisitions.  Please note nearly all of these were gifts.  My wife has put a strict moratorium on buying myself anymore geek t-shirts as the closet is already bursting at the seams.  Happily my friends are under no such ban.  :)

This t-shirt and ball cap combination was a gift from Serv.  Notice how the colors on the Superman symbol are reversed.  I find that striking.  In fact, this hat has become my favorite to wear lately.  The shirt came pre-faded.

This Red Lantern t-shirt was another gift from Serv, this time for my birthday.  Can’t you feel it?  The shirt just radiates rage.  Rage!  RAGE!

Neat mega-print Batman shirt from Lore (the irredeemable brother) for my birthday.  I really like the Bronze Age styling of the image.

Hilarious Star Trek t-shirt from Lore (the irredeemable brother).  This gag still makes me laugh!

Neat Superman hat I’ve had for a while.  I picked it up at Wal-Mart of all places.  I really like the bold colors and that the hat is fitted.  Where there would normally be an adjustable strap on the back, it’s just solid fabric with the stitched Superman symbol shown in the insert.

This Ghostbusters shirt is actually billed as a “T-shirt Costume”.  I picked this up at Target last Halloween.  The slime glows in the dark also.  I’ve been slimed!

A birthday gift from my boss.  This shirt is hilarious!  I tried to make the image big enough for you to read all the various powers.  I think my favorites are, “Communicate with Fruit” and “Summon a Lamp… Once”.  LOL!

This Scooby-Doo t-shirt is another birthday gift from Lore (the irredeemable brother).  I really like the coloring on this shirt. The mystery machine is faded and everyone in the foreground is really solidly colored.  Just looks sharp.

A friend gave me this Star Wars ball cap about 15 years ago.  It’s served me well, even in the years before Star Wars was cool again.

I picked up this Unique Geek t-shirt prior to DragonCon to help promote the website.  The insert shows the back of the t-shirt.

Okay, I don’t normally post pictures of underwear, but this is an exception.  I already featured these boxers on FIRESTORM FAN, but thought they were worth mentioning here also.  I just picked these up last week from K-Mart.  While there are tons of DC Comics boxers on the market, these are astonishing because they include both Firestorm and Doctor Fate.  Seriously?!?!?  Firestorm and Doctor Fate?!?!?  Two of my favorite characters that have proven time and again they can’t support their own monthly comic books?!?!?  Two characters that almost no one in the general public would recognize?!?!?  You betcha!  The other characters (Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Robin, and even Green Arrow) aren’t surprising to see on apparel as they are fairly well known.  I just never imagined they’d make Firestorm or Doctor Fate boxers.  I’m thankful they have!  I will say it’s a bit awkward where they’ve placed Firestorm.  He’s right on the flap. Kinda creepy.

    Um, honey, last time I checked…..You had 44 shirts with either a comic book reference or science fiction reference. That is more shirts than I have total. Love you.

  2. Reis O'Brien Says:

    Hey! I have that Scooby Doo shirt! We should hang out together sometime and both wear the same shirt and then wait for someone to point that out and then act really, really surprised like we totally didn’t notice it.

    Boy, if I had the ability to seduce hats the temptation to become a super villain and take over the world would might be hard to resist. “COME TO ME MY HATS AND ATTACK!”

    those boxers…you don’t wear them right? I see that they are on the hanger still. I mean if you wore them you would: At best) walk around with wood all day, OR, At Worst) Just cum in your shorts.

    44 shirts…sounds about right to me!

    Why does this not surprise me?

    What I’m still waiting for is golf shirts (aka polo shirts) with various geek icons in place of the polo guy — I’d love to have, say, a Green Lantern golf shirt for work, etc. Seems like a hugely untapped market — corporate casual. (The shirts would have to be pretty top-notch quality for it to work though; good quality shirt with a stitched (not iron-on like transfer) logo.)

    that batman shirt is amazing where did you find that??

  10. Shag Says:

    It was actually a gift from my brother, so I’m not sure where he got it. Possibly JC Penny.
