I am a geek. I have been very vocal about my love for geeky stuff ever since high school though I was teased before as both a nerd and a geek. By the time I was in college, I learned to embrace that part of me and claimed it so much I became so proud of it, it’s one of the determining factors of how you will be able to set me aside from others. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one.
So as a geek, whenever a shop, brand, or book focuses on that theme, I really get giddy. Cue in Geeking Tom!
Geeking Tom is a clothing line founded on July 2013 by a group of obsessive nerds that love cool shirts based on pop-culture. They decided to make their own brand and show off their love for all things geek, thus, Geeking Tom was born. Their tagline is, “Level-up your t-shirt game” because the goal is to stop t-shirt mediocrity and promote originality.
It is all about being proud and showing off things that (we) geeks love – comics, games, fandoms and more – through awesome shirts. Their shirts are 100% cotton, thick and durable, yet comfortable to wear. The designs are screen-printed to ensure the best quality for every shirt printed. Currently, Geeking Tom shirts are available online and through their retail partners Dyce and Dyne (Pasig), and Parafreaq (San Juan).
What sets them apart from other geek apparel is that all their designs are original and you won’t find them anywhere else. I like their belief in the talent of Filipino graphic artists and that they think their works deserve to be seen by all.
