Wear Suspenders in Honor of Embrace Your Geekness Day

Mark your calendars for July 13, 2017 all you proud geeks, and get ready to celebrate “Embrace Your Geekness Day.” Whether you’ve earned your geek title for your passion for sci-fi, video games, comics, computer technology or any number of hobbies and intellectual pursuits, this is your day to unabashedly let your geek gene shine. You can thank Thomas and Ruth Roy, of Lebanon, Pa. for giving birth to this day. This duo has been creating wacky holidays for almost 20 years and including them in Chase’s Calendar of Events — an annual American publication that includes special events, holidays, federal and state observances and more unusual celebratory traditions. Why July 13? Thomas Roy chose this date in honor of his good friend, Kirk Simpson, who has always been a self-proclaimed massive computer geek. Geek-tastic Gear As with any holiday — federal, state, religious or silly — celebrating it is half the fun. While all of us here at the SuspenderStore firmly believe that every occasion calls for wearing suspenders, donning your suspenders for Embrace Your Geekness Day is an absolute must. As the quintessential accessory of geeks, suspenders are a no-brainer when it comes to standing united with fellow geeks on July 13. Show up to the office with a handsome pair of dress suspenders and a bow tie, or to fully embrace the whimsy of the day, opt for a pair of novelty suspenders in a print that shows off your particular passion; slip on Outer Space Suspenders if you’re an astronomy geek, Train Suspenders if you’re a railway aficionado, Math suspenders if you are a numbers nerd, Reel Time Limited Edition Braces if you’re a movie buff, Circuit Board Suspenders if you are a computer geek and more. Once the workday is through, hit the town with friends sporting your novelty or casual suspenders with your jeans and a dapper button-down shirt. Women can express their love of everything geek by dressing in their favorite geek chic attire. This geek meets chic look can be achieved with a slim-fitting pair of trousers, a white button-down, suspenders and heels. For a sassier geek-chic outfit, pair suspenders with a short A-line skirt, sandals and a cute top. If you normally wear contacts, swap them for your glasses that day for the full geek effect.

    The manufacturer of these suspenders lost the licensing rights. Being huge Dr. Who fans we wanted to offer these suspenders to the universe as long as possible, so we stocked up and SuspenderStore is now the only supplier of these suspenders while supplies last!
