The Commodore 64 was one of the first computer systems to make computing technology available and affordable to the masses. In celebration of the Commodore I present you with 10 T-Shirts you can purchase and show your support for the “one-time high tech” device.
1. The Standard Commodore 64 Logo Shirt
While this is the most simplistic T-Shirt on our list, it does a good job of giving as little information as possible. There’s a good chance younger kids won’t get it and those of us who do will congratulate you for rockin’ such an old logo. This shirt retails for £14.99 at 8ball.co.uk.
2. Commodore 64 Start-Up Screen Shirt
Nothing brings back memories of the good ol’ Commodore 64 days like a boot shirt. This shirt shows the original startup menu and displays 64k RAM. We’ve come a far way, but type in all that nonsensical code was always fun as a kid. I know this shirt is plain in the background, but so is the screen those words appear on so it feels right.
3. I Adore My Commodore 64 T-Shirt
Sorry, I’m not sure where to buy this one, but the fact that it rhymes and the only mention to what 64 their talking about is the picture of an actual Commodore 64 it makes for a great conversation piece when the less geeky of us asks what in the world we’re wearing.
4. Commodore 64 T-Shirt With Drawn System
For a little less realism in Commodore 64 T-Shirts there’s this option from CafePress which features a hand drawn base from the system and the C64 Basic V2 output.
5. Commodore 64 Soft Reset T-Shirt
Ready to soft reset your system? Here’s a constant reminder of the Commodore 64 code that’s used to show a soft reset. The best part, your non-geeky friends will have absolutely no idea what your shirt means. Spreadshirt sells the shirt for around $25.
6. Commodore 64 Keyboard Shirt
The keyboard on the Commodore 64 is one of the most recognizable keyboards in the world, this T-Shirt idolizes that keyboard with an actual picture of the keyboard. It’s available at RetroGT for around $20.
7. My Other Computer Is A Commodore 64 T-Shirt
Another Zazzle shirt, this $22 shirt is perfect for PC users who want Mac users to know they have a better computer at home. All joking aside, it features everything I could want in a Commodore T-Shirt, the keyboard, the logo and a decent slogan.
8. Pet Friendly Commodore 64 T-Shirt
9. 8 Bit Buzz T-Shirt – Commodore 64 Comes To Life
This shirt offers a nice cartoon character rendering of a Commodore 64 that can be had for $17.10 from Redbubble. It’s definitely the most fun and my favorite of the C64 T-Shirts.
10. Binary Love Commodore 64 T-Shirt – I Heart Geeks
I’m sure there are many other Commodore 64 T-Shirts around, those are just some of my favorites. Regardless of the shirt you choose, with vintage being in-style these days this is a great way to show off that your hip to vintage and still a geek at heart.
