When Simon Pegg’s a fan, you know you’re in grand geek territory. Dark Bunny Tees, the film & TV-inspired T-shirt collection masterminded by Alex Chenery, already has the plaudits rolling in from respected geeks of note so doesn’t really require my stamp of approval; but hell, I’m gonna give it anyway!
The new officially licensed ‘Sherlock’ range, inspired by the Beeb adap’s characters and episodes, is the one to watch – but make sure to head over to the DBT site to discover your next fanboy fashion statement. From expected genre big-hitters (‘Doctor Who’, ‘Batman’) to quirky cult faves (‘The Big Lebowski’, ‘Arachnophobia’), Chenery’s got it covered.
The ‘Dark Bunny’ moniker is suited to a standout tee that takes its inspiration from Richard Kelly’s warped noughties movie masterpiece. I’ve taken some shots of my very own ‘Donnie Darko’ T-shirt below; it’s hard to miss the tee’s centrepiece recreation of the apocalyptic rabbit Frank, but diehard Donnie fans will love the hard-to-miss references such as the featured ‘Why are you wearing that stupid man suit?’ quote and the fact that Frank’s fictional costume shop is based in our hero’s hometown of Middlesex, Virginia.
Basically, it’s a dream design for Darko devotees.
Of course, to show off the doomsday bunny to full effect, I’ve donned a Donnie-style hoodie, put on my best superhero/anti-hero angst face, and travelled through a time-space camera lens wormhole to bring you the selfies below.
…They made me do it.

Remember last week when I was going cray cray over the top tees offered up by website T-Shirt Grill? Well, they’ve only been so kind as to gift me my very own Godzilla of a garment with the beast of a T-shirt modelled below…
Yep, amongst the Grill’s portfolio of savvy pop culture designs, ranging from cult classic clobber to badass rock band T-shirts, awaits a new collection that honours the new big screen take on Japan’s iconic beastie.
I’m posing in true McGeek fashion in the men’s Godzilla ‘Kanji’ T, which depicts a lumbering beast smashing his way through a cityscape (as in Gareth Edwards’s monster movie smash) with the creature’s name in Japanese characters below. In short: it looks pretty effing cool, and I’ll be wearing it to all upcoming monster mash parties.
Also, if I ever fancy treading on a city, this means I’ll have the very outfit to complement – as evident in the mockup of McGeek deciding to flatten a metropolis below. Flatten it in style, mind.

Going out tonight but haven’t got a stitch to wear? Oh fellow nerds, why be without a statement tee that shouts your geek-chic credentials when the folks at T-Shirt Grill offer a veritable pick ‘n’ mix of wardrobe wonders?
If you’re looking to make your allegiance to your favourite geek genre property known, whether Who or The Dude, then T-Shirt Grill has it covered. From slogan tees that will be a dead-cert hit at the pub to visual recreations of your fave alt. heroes (wear Eraserhead on Tuesday and the new Godzilla hoody on a Friday), T-Shirt Grill is a haven for anyone who wants to flaunt their pop culture cred whilst remaining thoroughly style-conscious.
And it’s not just your favourite cult TV and movie icons who are getting the tee treatment; this super-cool indie clothing company also dedicates sections of its website to musical legends, LOLZ-worthy novelty tees and even bloomin’ hats.

And winter. And, like, forever.
