Computer Key Shirt: Totally Geeky or Geek Chic?

I've seen a lot of geeky tees in my day, but I've never before seen such a Geek-key tee! Oh, I kill me!

But seriously. Check out this Computer Key Shirt ($26) from Etsy. I like you too much to make a pun about wearing your geekiness on your sleeve (but not enough to spare you from my geeky-key joke, snap), but you get the idea.

You want to know what the weirdest thing about this shirt is? I don't hate it. The grays the artist chose for the tees are very chic and complement the industrial grays of the keys. Don't know if I'd wear it to a party, but the execution could have been worse.

What do you think? Too cute or too dorky for words?

TOO geeky, and I'm usually a big supporter of all things geek. It just seems so... awkward and tacky. The shirt itself (without the keys) is pretty cute, though.

Interesting concept..but I don't think I would ever wear it. It would be more like a show off item, when I invite friends over (like "I'm the geekiest person in the room!!" :P)

Looks n00bish, tacky, not whitty, not chic, not geek, not...machine washable....

kinda weird... but it'd be neat if you could pluck off the keys and customize what it spells out =P

what if you used the little flat keys off a Macbook Pro or one of the new flat keyed keyboards? Probably still too bulky, nothing I would wear but interesting...

How would you wash it?!

I agree with vitisva, the keys should be silkscreened on. The shirt itself is cute and I would totes wear it, but the keys pose two problems: 1, I'd imagine they'd get scraped off or would be uncomfortable if you bumped into something, and 2, i bet you have to wash the shirt by hand which would mean i'd hardly ever wear it.

I dont get people who wear this sort of getup. Unless your in college or something? I dont do the whole grungy look with tshirts like that...

It'd be cuter if the keys were silk screened on. I don't really like the possibility of something coming off my shirt

it would hurt if your arm hit anything

I think I would end up picking the keys off. It may be cuter if they had been a flat-surface print instead of actual KEYS, but I get it, its probably recycling-based, right? Maybe as a necklace the keys would work better, like a grown-up-geek take on the old "string your name" type things. But it would be rather big. :P

It makes me want to do something with the keys off of all those keyboards we have that don't work... but probably not put them on clothing.

I actually like it. Not that I'd wear it, unless I suddenly become a high school computer teacher.
