Geek Apparel of the Week: Adult Swim’s Finer Things


Adult Swim has started its own clothing line called Finer Things, and it’s shockingly understated. My favorite is the Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Metalocalypse Murderface socks two-pack for $15, seen above, but make sure to check out the Err and Ignignokt “Weekbender” pants ($75 each), which are hilariously preppy, and the Robot Chicken hoodie ($50), which Adult Swim was kind enough to send me in hopes of me pimping their products, never realizing that I hate the Robot Chicken guys because I used to work with them and am bitterly jealous of their success. Check out all the wares here.
