Roy's T-Shirts from the IT Crowd
Trivia: the scrambled PacMan (S1E4) is probably a reference to level 256 on PacMan – if you reached it, the machine came up in a really screwed up screen.
that’s what the pacman kill level/split screen glitch actually looks like.
I’m 100% sure I will see nothing more awesome than this all day.
“Don’t Even Think About Tagging Me” is available from my friends at Balcony Shirtys (UK) : http://www.balconyshirts.co.uk/don-t-even-think-about-tagging-me.html
Didn’t he wear a Guided by Voices shirt at least once?
Edit: Yep. http://www.flickr.com/photos/kinneygirl/3405189511/
… and a Human League one? Maybe I just dreamt it.
If you find one we missed please send us a note firstname.lastname@example.org or comment on the Fibers.com page with a link so we can add it. We did our best but I did just notice a pig shirt he wore – but I’m not sure what episode. Thanks!
GBV shirt Roy wore (not sure of the episode): http://www.kungfunation.com/artists/43-guided-by-voices/product/1127-cycles-t-shirt-gbv01
Got it! Thanks so much! I’m adding the images now.
Do you know what Episode that was?
I do remember that he was “hiding” an old CRT monitor under his shirt and riding on a bus.
Found it: Season one, Episode four, starting at 2:05.
The lightening bolt reminds me of the one worn by the main character in Scott McCloud’s “Understanding Comics.” It’s also similar to the one worn by the Flash (No white circle behind it, though).
no helpful links to help people buy said shirts?

ah. muchas gracias
At least three of these in random categories are Diesel Sweeties: http://store.dieselsweeties.com/
Just a point of information: RTFM is pretty old. I have an RTFM button I bought at a SHARE convention at least 15 years ago (and probably 20 or so). SHARE (“it’s not an acronym, it’s what we do”) is the original open-source group, sharing source code, tips, and techniques for IBM systems when IBM was practically the only game in town (i.e., pre-PC)

where can I find the bra?
Well that didn’t need to be an infographic, did it? The links could have been on the shirts themselves then.
you might be right, but we thought it was fun!
Well I look like a grumpy pants now, don’t I? It is fun, thank you.
