Geek Apparel of the Week: Tributes, Collateral Damage, and Fuzz Aldrin Wants You



? A subtle and classy Hunger Games shirt? Yes, please. It’s $10 at Ript, today only.


? We Love Fine’s images are always small, so if you’re having trouble seeing what this is, it’s a skull wearing a Cobra soldier helmet and mask. Again: IT’S A COBRA SOLDIER SKULL IN BETWEEN THE WORDS “COLLATERAL DAMAGE,” and it’s unbelievably awesome. The only reason a joe fan shouldn’t be the shirt is because they’ve decided to get the image as a tattoo. It’s $25 here.
