My T-Shirts and Where to Get ‘Em

I enjoy t-shirts. Far more than a man in his 30s should, but our generation seems to enjoy extended adolescence that likes of which Mankind has never seen. Despite troubled economic times were are smack dab in the middle of a thriving Irony Bubble which is evidenced by the content of our t-shirts. I’m often asked by sprightly nerdfolk, “Chris Hardwick, where do you get your t-shirts?” There’s no one place that I find all of the shirts that strike chords deep in my brain, but a good place to start is Wire&Twine. I own most of their male catalog and am impressed by their consistent homeruns in the design department. If only these acute skills could be applied to national policy and finance, the United States might be in healthier shape. I enjoy W&T so much, in fact, that I’ve asked one of its overlords to redesign the very site that is reflecting light into your eyes at this very moment, so look for that soon.

The following images are a few of my absolute faves, with the hot-off-the-presses “Special” shirt, which some of you older kids might remember from CBS television in the 70s & 80s.

    I love you, Chris. Thanks for letting us all know where you get your awesome t-shirts.

  3. Lisa says:

    I was THIS }{ CLOSE to commenting on your extra special “Special” t-shirt. I recognized it immediately and giggled, but thought I shouldn’t leave yet ANOTHER comment about your exceptional taste in t-shirts. Glad to know everyone appreciates them.

    I have noticed that our generation has more tee choices now than ever before. At least once a week I find a shirt online that I’d like to have, but I always tell myself, “damn it, self, I already have like a million tee shirts, damn!”

  5. HOLY CRAP!!! My name is on the front page of The Nerdist!

    This unworthy novice nerdist kneels before the MASTER NERDIST and thanks him for this honor.

  7. Horacio says:

    what about the nerdist t-shirt with the palm tree?

  8. The Nerdist says:

    chrisallen: maybe don’t run up to Bob on the street and try to hug him.

    Beau: The Nerdist shirt I had made in a t-shirt shop in Vancouver. It’s one of those stores that every mall used to have where you pick out the shirt and the vinyl iron-on. With that one, I just had them put “NERDIST” instead of . I might produce a limited run of them, though…

  9. Cassie says:

    Awesome on 2 counts: 1. I, too, am addicted to t-shirts and can now shop another fabulous site. 2. FINALLY I can place that graphic! I could date it, but not remember where it was from.

    Thanks for enabling!

  10. Beaucifer says:

    Hey, you wore a shirt not to long ago on AOTS. Where can I get that shirt?

    I am digging the “Special” shirt.

  11. Shiri says:

    This is amazing. I watched your Storm review last night and immediately thought, “I need that shirt!” and voila here it is. It’s a Thanksgiving day miracle indeed.

  12. chrisallen says:

    now i can finally attempt to be as cool as you… only when i’m hugging bob saget will i have achieved such stature, though…

  13. Lana012 says:

    I am so happy to know where you get your shirts. I was one of those people who asks ” Chris where did you get you shirt.”
