I was introduced to the galaxy far, far away when I was 9 years old, but had no idea what was I actually getting addicted to (since I fell asleep in the middle of the movie) and crushing with. What I just know was Anakin Skywalker was just one dreamy guy and I wanted to be Queen Amidala. I became attached to the galactic empire after I’ve finally be able to watch the six (6) episodes. The force is just stronger indeed.
I even came to a point where I miss all those merchandises my sister used to collect and would make my own design and just to satisfy my cravings for these kind of stuff. I even came closer to the point of making my own set of shirts, when I suddenly came across an awesome apparel.
Geeking Tom is an online shop that caters to every geeky cravings. It was founded on July 2013 by a group of obsessive nerds that love cool shirts based on pop-culture. They decided to make their own brand and show off their love for all things geek, thus, Geeking Tom was born. Their tagline is, “Level-up your t-shirt game” because the goal is to stop t-shirt mediocrity and promote originality.
It is all about being proud and showing off things that (we) geeks love – comics, games, fandoms and more – through awesome shirts. Their shirts are 100% cotton, thick and durable, yet comfortable to wear. The designs are screen-printed to ensure the best quality for every shirt printed. Currently, Geeking Tom shirts are available online and through their retail partners Dyce and Dyne (Pasig), and Parafreaq (San Juan).
What sets them apart from other geek apparel is that all their designs are original and you won’t find them anywhere else. I like their belief in the talent of Filipino graphic artists and that they think their works deserve to be seen by all.
As the days comes closer to awakening the force, Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, Geeking Tom came up with their first ever tribute to Star Wars, hence the Shirt Wars.
