Microsoft Softwear…that’s not a spelling mistake, that’s Microsoft’s newest release. Clothes by Microsoft = Softwear!
There are a number of different t-shirts, some designed by Common (the formerly good rapper) and all harking back to the days of MS-DOS et al…you can see the full ranges here.
I know the vast majority of people are going to find this the most Uber-geekiest they’ve ever seen-but I think they’re awesome! The missus has just informed me that I’m a “massive geek” to confirm that!
My 3 favourite t-shirts are:
These are “in stores December 15th” according to the site but which stores and can I get them in the UK?!
**Update** Two of these bad boys (the Binary Code Tee and the Bill Mugshot Tee) are on UrbanOutfitters.com, but just those two. They cost $28 ($34 inc Tax) and Urban Outifitters will ship to the UK BUT the shipping will cost $56!!! That means for one T-shirt you’re looking at $90, which today is £57.68…they’re cool but that’s a bit too much in my opinion!
I’ve had a look on urbanoutfitters.co.uk but I can’t see any on there, hopefully they, or another retailer, will get them over here quick sharp 🙂
If you’ve got any more info-hit me up and let me know!

Rich, your missus is absolutely right: your über-geekiness has scaled new heights with this post (or should that be plumbed new depths?). However, I can imagine you enjoying wide acceptance in the kinds of circles you move in if you were indeed to roll up wearing any of the above. The binary code T does, admittedly, radiate enough Zeitgeist to make it kind of cool, and any of them would go well with shorts worn with the waistband pulled up to your armpits. Nonetheless: even your cheeky little en passant reference to Common (“the formerly good rapper”) isn’t street enough to rescue you from the confines of geekdom on this one!
