People often ask me where I get my shirts, since I’m almost always wearing something aimed at geeks, nerds or gamers to cover my torso. Usually I don’t remember because I get them from all over the place, including eBay sometimes, but the best stores can sometimes be hard to find as it’s a pretty big market on the internet. So here’s a list of my favourites, please leave a comment if you want your store listed and I’ll check it out first (no cafepress / spreadshirt shops please, just propper stores). If I like it, I’ll add it to the list and probably buy something at the same time 🙂
In no particular order…
- J!NX – Great shop for gamer shirts, they carry a few exclusive lines for World of Warcraft, EVE Online, Starcraft & Diablo, Aion, and a lot of non-specific geeky T’s.
- TopatoCo – Very very cool shirts mostly based on various webcomics like Dinosaur Comics, Questionable Content, XKCD, etc.
- Think Geek – One of my alltime favourite online stores, their shipping is pretty hefty for Australia but their product range is incredible. Not just for shirts, too, but also for the kind of geeky toys that any geek would love nomatter what the occasion.
- Split Reason – Gamer shirts.
- Threadless – More indie than geek / gamer, but still quite a few really nice shirts. Lately they have been getting geekier, still a bit hipster for my usual but nice.
- TShirtHell – Not for the easily offended, these guys specialise in politically incorrect shirts that sometimes involve copious amounts of swears.
- SharkRobot.com – home of some really awesome VGCats (among others) shirts!
And then there’s the daily ones:
- TeeFury.com (one a day, my favourite to get daily emails from)
- http://www.teemagnet.com/ (aggregator of a bunch of sites, occasionally will be out of sync)
