    it's possible and i think already asked for. we also requested a smart long sleeve shirt, that could be worn to work or at least conferences.
    i also really want some cuff links.

    I do believe a few members have discussed this in the past as an item that would be liked so I am sure it will be considered at some point

    The current EduGeek shirts are a bit like the old Ford Model T. You can have it in any colour and style you like, as long it's black and short-sleeved

    +1 fro the tie idea though.

    Exactly and that is the best style for all this time of year Short sleeved to keep cool and black so you can rub the toner into it when the cartridge showers you in toner as you gently shake it hehe It also helps to hide the general dusty muck I seem to get at work.

    Oh and if your a geek who suffers in the heat and starts to melt black doesn't really show your embarrassment as much as lighter colours do

    @FN-GM It's called freedom of choice, and stragely what you are trying to put down is something that doesn't even exist. It's like trying to denigrate tree fairys. If we did have a tie made up, nobody would force you to buy it. In fact, we wouldn't force anybody to buy it. Now. Somebody has given us a suggestion as to something they would like to wear, and have us spend time, effort and money creating, and all you can do is insult them? That is an attempt to remove freedom of choice. Now my guess is that almost all of your clothes, and even your ties will have a brand name or even a logo on there somewhere, and as your previous comments have suggested, you didn't factor that in when you purchased them, then you went for look alone, which, stangely enough is exactly what anyone buying our currently non-existant tie would do.

    @Localzuk Yes, we'll look into it. Would people like one big roundel in the middle or lots of little ones? It's your freedom of choice.

    Who said an EduGeek branded tie had to have the site name plastered over it?

    I'd prefer a Mason-esq Tie-pin, with a logo that only fellow Edugeekers would know. We could then create a special handshake too.

    Lots of little logos I think would be smart, on a black background, but perhaps intersperced with computers or something else? I'm sure Sysman will come up some great ideas

    A descrete tie pin is also a good idea, perhaps again just the logo without anything else? (it would match the cufflinks )

    Maybe a handshake that resembles the movement you make when you receive a slight electric shock or static discharge?

    I think I'd be thinking something with a single logo - I can't imaging a pattern of them looking cool.

    Maybe it could be the text 'edugeek' multiple times, with a single logo at the bottom?

    And I'm staying out of the rest of the argument over whether to wear such things - it is a pointless argument. I own ubuntu, firefox, xkcd, and of course, edugeek clothing, and I don't see anything wrong with that. FN-GM's argument is kinda irrelevant. If you don't want to wear such things that's your choice, but some of us do. Otherwise, all cars would look identical, computers would all still be beige boxes, everyone would have clone dogs, and we'd all eat food rations rather than varied foods.
