It all started with a simple question: why is it so difficult to find geeky button-up shirts? In response, we founded a small business that designs or sources patterns for our handmade-to-order products.
As fellow geeks, we share a love for Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, board games, video games, and Dungeons and Dragons - passions that inspire many of our prints. But we're not exclusive; we welcome geeks of all kinds and continue to add more prints tailored to other nerdy interests. Our mission is for Geek Tropical to be a clothing brand for all geeks, offering something that embraces and celebrates their unique personalities. We encourage everyone to proudly show off their inner geek and be true to themselves!
The choice to implement print-on-demand for all our products was a straightforward decision, given the significant impact the fashion industry has on the environment. By creating each item on an as-needed basis, we minimize waste and avoid participating in the "fast fashion" trend, which often results in the production of countless product variations that may never find buyers. Furthermore, having our own print shop allows us to offer our customers a high level of customization tailored to their unique preferences.
Another advantage of implementing print-on-demand for our products is the increased ability to offer a wider range of designs and product variations. With traditional manufacturing methods, companies must produce products in large quantities and limited variations, which can limit the availability of unique designs and styles. In contrast, print-on-demand allows for the creation of a vast array of designs and product options without the need for large inventories. This not only provides more options for our customers but also allows us to stay up-to-date with emerging fashion trends and offer fresh, new designs more frequently.
Our print shop is located in Vietnam. This is the best and most trusted cut & sew print shop that we have been using since the very start. We stand by their products completely.
This product is made from soft and lightweight fabric that offers a range of benefits. The 100% premium woven polyester fabric is both breathable and lightweight, while also providing wrinkle resistance, durability, insulation, and moisture-wicking properties.
This material is also ideal for printing, allowing for beautiful and vibrant colors thanks to high-resolution and advanced printing technologies.
Geek Tropical offers two different types of buttoned shirt styles: "Hawaiian" and "Button Down" shirts
Hawaiian Shirt: A classic Hawaiian button up closure and camp collar (also known as the Cuban collar) – a perfect shirt for everyday wear or business casual work settings.
Button Down Shirt: A more dressy look with a straight collar and button down closure complimented with a top button - great when you want to pair the shirt with a tie or for any type of event, casual or formal.
Geek Tropical has partnered with WAIR to offer a customized sizing experience for customers of all body types. By utilizing WAIR's algorithm and database of human body scans, along with feedback from customer reviews, product size specs, and fit preferences, Geek Tropical can provide accurate sizing recommendations to their shoppers. This partnership ensures that customers receive the best possible fit for their purchases and preferences. On the product page, click "What's my size" to take a short quiz to determine the recommended size for your purchase.
Our button down and Hawaiian shirts are a standard traditional regular fit. A regular fit size usually hugs snugly around your body while leaving enough room for comfort in the sleeves and waist.
Regular fit sizes are designed for the masses and often looser on the body, providing a classic and comfortable look. Those with a slender body type may need to consider sizing down; those with an athletic build and wide shoulders may need to consider sizing up.
If you desire a slim fit, you may consider sizing down but please double check your shoulder measurements against our size chart.
