It’s been a while since I last posted about my awesome friends over at Made With Awesome. I’ve been a longtime fan of their hilarious tees. They’ve got some new tees that I haven’t seen before (yeah, I’ve been on hiatus). You’re Weird, We Should Be Friends must become a part of my wardrobe. Seriously, awesome.
You already know how much I LOVE science! I mean, I wrote an entire post dedicated to 101 Science T-Shirts. In fact, it’s one of the most popular posts on this blog, having garnered over 300,000+ views. Needless to say, I was pretty excited to find these science themed T-Shirts from Crazy Like That. They actually reached out to me a while ago, but just now was able to get my eye balls on their site … and boy was I NOT disappointed.
First of all, they have amazing product shots. Seriously, I love their product shots. The models, poses and props are spot on. Indie brands should really take note of how Crazy Like That present their goods (I just wish that they also provided a close up shot of just the designs). Excellent. Secondly, their science T-Shirts are just perfect and have the right combination of humor and wit. Any science nerd will enjoy the T-Shirts at Crazy Like That.
My favorites have got to be the Pennsylvania Towns & Highways tee (Intercourse, Pennsylvania has a population of roughly 1558) and the simple, yet excellent Sugar tee. Speaking of sugar, I think my blood-glucose levels are kind of low – time to go and eat some food!
Ah, good ol’ Valentine’s Day. I’m not at all religious, but, a few of my Facebook acquaintances are. One of them posted this interesting story: “One story of St. Valentine was that he was a priest or bishop who was arrested during the reign of Claudius II for marrying people, the sacrament of marriage. Claudius liked him until Valentine tried to convert the Emperor and in turn the priest was beheaded. Perhaps the true message have been diluted throughout the centuries? From sacrifice and martyrdom to chocolate and indulgence.”
Interesting, no? We went from a beheading to chocolates and roses. How romantic. Of course, there’s nothing more romantic than zombies, and our friends at Goodie Two Sleeves know that! They recently released a slew of zombified T-Shirts for the hopeless romantic. My favorite is definitely the Zombies Love Nerds design, I just wish there was a little splatter of blood.
And if you’re in the mood for a couple more tees to celebrate this heart attack of a holiday, check out this great curated list of Valentine’s Day themed tees from our friend, Macho Slut, over at Found Item Clothing.

What Would Geordi La Forge Do? by MightTees.Pros: If you’re a Trekkie then it is highly likely that you will fall in love with two of the latest tees from MightTees. Both T-Shirts pay tribute to two of the most popular characters from Star Trek: The Next Generation, Jean-Luc Picard and Geordi La Forge. Each shirt features some sexy vector artwork, very 21st century! My favorite thing about MightTees shirts are the shirts themselves because they are so super soft (trust me on this) and organic. MightTees only uses water-based inks so you can expect a super soft print, not that thick ink that you’ll typically find on cheap tees. From experience, I can tell you that the print on these T-Shrits will get softer with each wash. MightTees is pure geek bliss.
The custom packaging adds a very nice touch. I almost felt bad about tearing open the package with the cute MightTees character. And how about that custom paper wrapping! Talk about a detailed eye. With every order from MighTees you not only get a great product, but a well thought out one as well.
The T-Shirt is tagless (which is always a plus for me) and instead features a screen printed neck label instead. Only 60 of these T-Shrits were printed so if you like what you see then you better head on over to MightTees and grab yourself one (or two) because they will surely sell out quickly. As a side note, the Jean-Luc Picard Make It So T-Shirt is already sold out in a few sizes (x-small and medium are sold out). And as with all MightTees designs, once they sell out they are never again printed or re-released. Tip: Go buy this tee now.
Suggestions: My only suggestion would be that 1. MightTees needs to make more tees more often, and 2. You need to go and pick yourself up some MightTees goodness right now. Can you tell that I am a fan of MightTees?!
Children of the QWERTY by Tan Nuyen for Threadless.Pros: Children of the QWERTY was one of the tees that I randomly received from the Threadless “Trick or Tees”promotion, which was basically a $5 mystery T-Shirt. I’m not blown away by this particular design, yes it’s witty, but nothing all too exciting (for me, at least). What did get me excited was the other two “trick or tee” T-Shirts that I received. One was a special edition Threadless Select tee that was only made in available in 2007 during the Threadless Chicago retail store opening. You had to be there in 2007 in order to get one of those bad boys and they didn’t even make them available for sale online. I got one for $5 three years later. Stoked!
Price: $5 (sold out but you could try and score one via their $5 Mystery Tees promotion).
What kind of nerd are you? According to this new Threadless tee by Riccardo Bucchioni, there are 9 major nerd types:
Comic Book Nerd
Let’s see, if I had to classify myself into a specific class of nerd then I would have to say that I am most likely a Science Nerd. Though, I am pretty sure that I could hold my own against Movie Nerds and Computer Nerds (especially those that subclassify themselves as Apple Nerds). What kind of nerd are you?
By the way, this T-Shirt reminds me a bit of this little infographic that I posted more than 2 years ago. Geeks rule the world!
I don’t watch the Big Bang Theory religiously (although I should), but I have seen my fair share of episodes. If you’re a fan of the show and you love tees then you’ll most likely have noticed Sheldon’s obsession with geeky, science-y, and comic book type T-Shirts. He must have large closet space to hold his wares.
One enterprising Big Bang Theory fan has assembled a very unique T-Shirt site. The site SheldonShirts.com is a chronicle of each of the nerdy shirts that Sheldon has worn on the Big Bang Theory. They have a fairly sizeable collection and they link to the shirts if they are still available for sale. Pretty neat idea in a I wish I had thought of that sort of way!
“You’ve reached T-shirt Nerdvana! Here at SheldonShirts.com, we’ve collected all the best t-shirts worn by Sheldon and Leonard on The Big Bang Theory, plus Howard’s belt buckles, some shirts we think Sheldon and Leonard should wear, cool stuff seen on the show (Periodic Table shower curtain, anyone?), some of our favorite Sheldon quotes and lots more. Find out where to buy your favorite tee shirts!”

Fistachio by Maiden Voyage Clothing Co.Pros: Lovely presentation, the T-Shirt was packaged in such a wonderful way that Â I had a great experience going through each layer of the boxing before I got to the actual shirt. Shirt comes packed in a little sack much like one you would find on any ship in the 1700′s, except it’s a bit miniature (so cool). The shirt was tagless and featured a screen printed neck label. A custom hangtag is included as well. The print is extremely large and super soft, as is the shirt itself (soft that is). Love the fact that they have a theme and stick with that theme from the website to the packaging to the shirt design. All around awesome in my opinion.Â Cons: The shirt is very slim fitting so if you like your shirts a bit on the loose side I’d suggest ordering a size up. Price: $28
IÂ Be Au Sm by Lawrence Villanueva and available at Threadless.Pros: If you are a geek you will enjoy this shirt – I guarantee it.Â Cons: Complaints? I don’t have any. I absolutely adore this shirt, I guess that make me a geek.Â Price: $15.
If I were still doing Coty Loves Threadless I would bet that When Geek-ness Goess Retro by Riccardo Bucchioni would be a Threadless Pick of the Week. It’s such a cool shirt and it reminds me of those mail order ads that I’d find scattered in old school comic books back in the day. I remember always seeing ads for X-Ray glasses and I remember never getting them (what’s an 8-year-old kid to do with no checkbook). As an adult (with a checkbook on hand), maybe I should invest in a pair of vintage X-Ray glasses and see once and for all if they really work. Hmmmm…..
No, not me silly. But for those of you who did major in English this tee might be of interest. I found it after I stumbled across this Math Major T-Shirt on Tumblr (follow me on Tumblr). After I realized the Math Major shirt was a Zazzle tee I decided to hunt for a much more credible shirt with similar relevance. And that’s when I found the I’m An English Major, You Do The Math tee from Mental Floss. This dark blue tee will make for the perfect gift for any aspiring English major – throw in a notepad and pen and they’ll be set for next semester! The shirt is priced at $17.97 and features the Mental Floss logo on the sleeve.
Admiral Ackbar has been getting a lot of attention in the tee world as of late. First it was the popular Obama Hope parody tee featuring the admiral called “Trap.” And now Might Tees has released a limited edition (150 shirts printed) Admiral Ackbar ASCII It’s A Trap tee. The design was inspired by the ASCII art that liters the Digg comments section and is part of the Might Tees Death by ASCII Art series. It’s Â A Trap is printed on an organic cotton tee and is available now from Might Tees for $35.99.
