Why pay more? #4 - The Geek t-shirt edition

This was originally my 'High Street vs High End' series but I decided to rename it to 'Why pay more?' as I felt that this new name suited it much more.

This edition is the infamous Geek t-shirt that most likely everyone and their mum has by now. There are quite a few places selling these now (I believe Primark does their own version, if not similar) but the place where it all stemmed from was everyone's favourite shop - Topshop.

Similarities:
Both of these come in black with white writing (although I think the Topshop one comes in several more colours) and they both come with the roll-up sleeve. They are also both 100% cotton.

Differences:
The only difference is the size of the writing. Internacionale's is ever so slightly larger than Topshop's. However, when I was looking at the images earlier, I noticed that in Internacionale's image, the t-shirt is a medium put onto a smaller mannequin (as we used to do all the time if no size was available). I actually own the medium size and I find it slightly baggy. I am a size 14/16 normally depending on what item of clothing it is (Ok I do have large boobs too).

I already have my Geek t-shirt....Do you have yours?
