29 Nerdy Menswear Innovations

From Teacher's Pet Couture to School Boy Fashion

— April 23, 2010 — Fashion
The image of the geek is one that is constantly being reinvented year to year, so what you'll see in this cluster of nerdy menswear innovations is a glimpse into the evolution of the preppy and egghead style.

Pretty much everything geeky you can think of is contained within this collection of nerdy menswear innovations, from sweater vests to stitched elbow blazers and corduroy pants in every shape and size. I even threw in some 'Star Wars' sneakers for good measure.
