Geek Apparel of the Week: Squirrelly and Nerdy




? Often mocked and utterly lovable, Marvel’s Squirrel Girl finally gets her piece of the merchandising pie with a line of T-shirts from the Mighty Fine clothiers. Doreen Green fanatics will be excited to learn that they can choose from the shirt pictured above — my personal favorite– or a red tee with a completely different design. (There are also shirts available featuring her sidekick, Monkey Joe). All of these run $26 each, and are available in men’s and women’s sizes. As if this purchase wasn’t already esoteric enough, for a limited time Mighty Fine is throwing in a bag of walnuts with every purchase of a Squirrel Girl shirt. Insert nutty joke here.

? Okay guys, what kind of nerd are you? Find out with this new shirt from Threadless designed by Riccardo Bucchioni that is available as a tee ($18) or hoodie ($40). While this is available in women’s sizes, as of yet there is no female variant of the shirt as of yet. Bucchioni, make that happen!
