STAR TREK T-Shirts: Does anyone wear them?



good morning everyone. i consider myself a huge Star Trek fan and this forum has become an important part of my life. i've seen most of the series, however, i need to do some catching up.

i was curious if anyone here ever wore ST gear. i'm not talking about dressing up as a drone or miles obrien. i'm just curious if anyone here wears fan shirts, even if it's just a t-shirt that says 'Star Trek' in bold letters. where can you find these?

thanks

I have great one: four spocks a la Andy Warhol, and in the last one his expression is different.

Yes, plenty of people wear Star Trek fan shirts. They’re called “geeks.”

That’s okay, we’re all geeks here.

Re: STAR TREK T-Shirts: Does anyone wear them?

I don't wear shirts that have the ship or the characters or the words "Star Trek" on them, I prefer to be more subtle about my geekiness.


Once in a while, people get the reference...

Re: STAR TREK T-Shirts: Does anyone wear them?

When I was young, I wore them alot. Eventually, I only wore them at conventions. Now, I rarely wear one. However, I do have a Star Trek shirt that my students last year (actually an awesome room mom did all the work) got me, with all the kids' signatures. I plan on wearing it this year on the last day of school.

Don't have any more Trek shirts, though I'm considering ordering this...

Re: STAR TREK T-Shirts: Does anyone wear them?

I would gladly wear a Trek T-Shirt if I could find them long enough for me. I'm 7 foot tall, and a 3XL -- largest most places make -- becomes a "belly shirt" on me, which, obviously, isn't a good look on any guy.

I've got one, a DS9 t-shirt that is a 5X. But it's not very comfortable because it's made for width, less than height.

Sigh.

I'm happy to pay for a shirt of proper length. I know it's going to cost me $30 for a good shirt. They just won't fucking make them!

When will companies realize, people come in different sizes not only in horizontally but vertically?

Re: STAR TREK T-Shirts: Does anyone wear them?

I have a "Live Long and Prosper" shirt from NEXT that I got as a Father's Day gift a few years ago. I like it. I also have two Defender shirts (the 1980s coin-op - my fave) and a purple tee with a giant green Space Invader on it. No problem flying the geek flag here.

Four of my mugs are Trek-related; they get regular use in the office.

Re: STAR TREK T-Shirts: Does anyone wear them?

I used to have a shirt that said "Ten Forward Lounge" on it, but in the exact style of a Hardrock Cafe shirt. I liked that one because most people who weren't fans didn't even realize that it was a Trek shirt. Unfortunately, after many years, it just got worn out.

Re: STAR TREK T-Shirts: Does anyone wear them?

I don't really wear t-shirts with logos and stuff on them, but if I did I would probably get a vintage-looking Trek t-shirt.

I was photographed in my local paper wearing a TNG shirt when I was 9. I think that was the only Trek apparel I've ever owned...

Re: STAR TREK T-Shirts: Does anyone wear them?

Never had one to the best of my recollection, but I'd be willing to get one that was witty and/or well-designed.

I'd pay good money for a "Shatner. I'd fight William Shatner." t-shirt.
