DarwinWear for my London Visit

I was offered a free Darwin shirt by the good people at CafePress because they were certain that I’d like it so much that I’d mention it on my blog. Well, they were right about that! I love my shirt and I love it even more because it arrived in time for me to wear when I visit London! They were kind enough to also send a very clever Darwin sweatshirt. This sweat shirt is a size “G” (for giant? I actually asked for a large, but, oh well) which means that I can share it with someone special and we both can stay warm!

If you were curious about the quality of these items, I can tell you not to worry because these items make a wonderful long-wearing addition to any scientist’s wardrobe. The only problem is they might be addictive: here are a few more favorite designs that I am going to try to get before I visit London.


About GrrlScientist

grrlscientist is the pseudonym of an evolutionary biologist and ornithologist who writes about evolution, ethology, and ecology, especially in birds. After earning a degree in microbiology (thesis focus: virology) and working at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, she earned her PhD in zoology from the University of Washington in Seattle, where she studied the molecular correlates of testosterone and behaviour in white-crowned sparrows. She then worked a Chapman Postdoctoral Fellow at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, where she studied the speciation and distribution of lories and other parrots throughout the South Pacific Islands. A discarded scientist, she returned to her roots: writing. Formerly hosted by The Guardian (UK), she now writes about science for Forbes and for the non-profit think tank, the Evolution Institute and she writes podcasts for BirdNote Radio. An avid lifelong birder and aviculturist, she lives with a flock of songbirds and parrots somewhere in Germany.

    Long time no post… London? That should be wonderful, so much great stuff to see there. About the shirts, eh… I think we can do better, but I’m biased. 😉 Let me know if I can send you something.

    G usually stands for “Gran” or “Grande” depending on the place of manufacture or intended location of sale. quite a lot of my clothes have tags that say L/G or XL/TG to be multiligual…
