Having worked closely with a textile industry museum, i get horrified by the amount of t-shirts getting produced, how many tonnes of t-shirts are thrown away, and how many there are in the average wardrobe. The social and environmental aspects aren't pretty to look at. When youtubers sell their promotional stuff, i cringe. That said, a nesdev tshirt/piqué isn't quite like a company/event/promotional tshirt. It'd be a small run, and i'd wear it for as long as the fabric holds. Better have a good look at materials, quality and production, though. I don't mind paying for something that'll last.

I have the exact oposite goal in life, that is, to hide whether possible I'm an "ultra nerd".

Well I don't throw any away but I have 60+ of them in my wardrobe, and I barely bought less than 10 of them, all others were offered to me. And I don't know why it's so convenient to offer t-shirt, if they did the same for all kind of clothes with an equal frequency and not just t-shirts it'd be much more useful. For example these days raincoat would be more useful than yet another tshirt.

Nobody in the real world knows what NesDev is, your secret is safe! :lol: I have tons of nerdy t-shirts, and would love an NesDev one if the design was cool, but importing t-shirts is waaay to expensive for me and completely out of question right now.

Haha, I thought being a nerd was the new cool these days. It seems every five seconds I hear people competing for how Nerdy they are because they watch Game of Thrones or whatever. :roll:
