Simplistic Geek

The Simplistic Geek Collection is a range of unique and imaginative apparel bought you from the heart of the Smoky Mountains, TN. As true 'Geeks' we were bored of the usual boring superhero and souvenir t-shirts that can be purchased anywhere, and decided to produce designs that speak to fans around the world.

Simplistic Geek Apparel is only available from this site, Our official Etsy Store, at various Comic Cons around the USA, and in our Official Simplistic Geek store in Gatlinburg, TN.

They love us.... they really love us!

This is my second t-shirt from these guys and it's just as fantastic as the first. The color is great, the design is flawless and you can't beat the shop owners! My original t-shirt is still in perfect condition after many (many) washes. Will definitely purchase from these guys in the future. :)

We stopped in at the Gatlingurg store and couldn't pick just one shirt. They were great and my husband visited for a long time with the owner. They both "geeked out" and had a great time. We cannot wait to order more in the future after we get our first order and share with the whole comic book loving family.

This is a unique shop of extremely comfortable t-shirts and sweatshirts. They are fantastic for people with sensory issues. He made two for me while we were waiting in his shop. The shirts wash well and last a long time.

  • About Us

  • In 2014, the Husband and Wife team behind a Screen printing company in Gatlinburg, TN, realized that there was nothing different, or 'clever' behind the apparel designs that saturated the market at comic cons and fan expos. Everything on sale looked alike, and was usually overpriced, and available at a local big box retailer.
  • Changing the Game

  • Using their combined imaginations and love of all things 'geek', They set about brainstorming a different slant on the fan-shirt designs that were readily available. Very quickly their nerdy-ness took over, and Simplistic Geek was born.
  • Inspired by fictional characters

  • and the popularity of 'vintage / varsity' style apparel, They created imaginary schools, majors, clubs, teams and extra curricular activities, and combined them with the dates that these characters first appeared in comic books, tv shows or movies to create a believable Varsity style shirt, that your fellow fans will make a connection with and envy.
  • Simplistic Silhouettes

  • Simplistic Silhouettes Show your favorite characters in a totally unique way, The Surname Collection, which uses the last names of the characters to showcase their alter-ego's, and coming soon, The Entrepreneur Line - A totally unique range of designs based on the businesses your favorite characters might do, if they decided to hang up the cape !. Simplistic Geek have a large range for all fandoms, and are always working on new concepts to keep things interesting!
  • Retail Location, Gatlinburg TN

  • Following the opening of a retail location at the Mountain Mall in Downtown Gatlinburg, Simplistic Geek employed the same creativity to a line of souvenir shirts as they have done to their 'Geek' Shirts. By moving away from the typical over-priced, poor quality touristy t-shirts that are found in the high traffic areas of town, and using soft, light, quality fabrics that people love, combining them with clever, classy and unique designs.
  • Something different

  • It is easy to spot a Simplistic Geek shirt among the throngs of neon and pastel shirts that overwhelm the area. Very quickly Simplistic Geek established a reputation for a high quality product at a fair price among locals and visitors alike, and have become a 'must visit' store for many people when they vacation in Gatlinburg.

My husband and I took our daughter and 3 grandkids in. All 6 of us got custom tshirts. This couple is very talented and artistic, their designs are very unique. They have the patience of Job to put up with our crew! They are very reasonably priced plus they honor us veterans (and first responders) with a 10% discount.

Sharon C

My wife and I and our friends visited Simplistic Geek during our vacation and we were so impressed with this small business! The T-Shirts are all so incredibly designed, and we were so impressed that they were all designed in-house. We bought 3 shirts and are extremely pleased with all of them. On top of that, the owners were awesome people and great to talk to! Make sure you check this place out!

Loved the Gatlinburg shirts I bought for my husband and I. They are super soft compared to the other souvenir shirts around town not to mention excellent pricing. She was so friendly and even allowed me to go to the bathroom to try on a shirt because I'm between sizes. I hope to order more in the future. I'll definitely be stopping by on my next trip to Gatlinburg!

Really, really good quality. Honestly, it reminds my of my $80 Bradley University hoodie. It has the same material. Which Is amazing because that’s one of the best I own. So these hoodies are honestly a steal. Not to mention how clever they are.
