Let's face it. Shopping for scientists can be tough. Whether you're elbow-to-elbow in the tissue-culture hood all day, or you only know that they work on something that smells like feet, it can be a challenge to find the right gift for every scientist.

"That DNA is backwards!"
"Nice try, but mosquitos don't have halteres!"
"Why are the atria and ventricles so horrifically misshapen?"

We've all been there. Which is why we've made some shirts that you can confidently gift to even the most correction-prone scientists. That's not to say that they won't critique the shirt, but you can rest assured that you've done your due dilligence in finding a design that is both accurate AND worth wearing under even the most buttoned-up of lab coats.

Finches be Speciatin - DJ Chucky D

Charles Darwin's observations while visiting the Galapagos Islands aboard the HMS Beagle have changed the way we think about life on earth. Now we dare you to see finches and not think about how they always be speciatin'.

RIP DJ Chucky D

Select this super shirt!
