Super-comfy cotton tee with super-awesome RAWR-inspiring T Rex! I love the 3-D rendering effect… I wonder what it looks like with 3-D glasses?

Imagine this tie with your guy’s most conservative pin-stripe suit and black Converse All-Stars. Look closely, and you’ll see it’s designed to look like a spider-webbed windshield. Cool, and most definitely punk.

Even a guy with the hardest of edges had fun as a kid playing with his Legos. If he has to play in a grown-up world and wear a set of cufflinks, why not let them declare his love of his past? These are made of sterling silver and plastic, and come in a rainbow of colors, from goth black to cheery yellow and pink.

5 Raven Destroyed Tee

Industrial Netbook BagPrice: $50.00 at
Every netbook needs a bag, and this one’s perfect for a fella with a punk edge. It’s made of sturdy, bang-resistant wool felt and leather, and fits most netbooks (but sadly not the iPad… yet). The strap is adjustable and detachable, too.

7 Hardware Necklace
