Geek Chic

Dancing class started again tonight. Based on that experience, I decided to publish some geekoid fashion tips by your half-uncool host. It seems that this topic has been hot recently.

  • T-Shirts issued by your sports club should be used for sports. Only.
  • Chequered shirts: This cliche is so old that I don’t even know where to start. For some reason, they never die out.
  • Avoid shirts that come in triple-packs.
  • No cartoons on socks.
  • T-Shirts with mathematical symbols, greek letters or program code should not be worn in public.
  • If it is washed out, get a new one.
  • Do not wear white T-Shirts on pale skin.
  • Glasses: Prescription frames are not recommended. If you can’t get something fashionable, get contact lenses.
  • Sun glasses should be worn in the sun. Never use them because you think they make you look cooler.
  • Consider getting a professional haircut.

  1. You forgot about the white socks, the white sports shoes, the ugly jeans whith an prehistoric belt etc.

    Also not advised is to wear ‘cool’ hip-hop stuff. If hip-hop ever was cool, it is definitely not cool to dress like some gangsta rappa.

    Oh, and btw. what makes you think that geeks go dancing? I mean, if a geek gets social, will he still be a geek?


  2. It should be forbidden for geeks to chose their own clothes. Look at my colleagues today! It is the geeks-wear-formal-clothes-horror-show.

    Especially, it should be forbidden to wear ties!


  3. I remember a day in the past where M took you shopping for complete set of new clothes because all you old staff didn’t fulfill her standards or something like that ….
