Roy sure does have a colorful collection of t-shirts, all of which he probably ordered from the internet. While a lot of the shirts are just funny one-liners or really neat images, some of ‘em contain references to books, cult movies or even obscure websites. Below are just a few of our favourite tees that Roy has worn throughout the run of the series. These images acquired from Geeky Tees and Roy’s T-Shirts on Facebook.

PacMan

pac man 2 580x320 The Best Of Roys T Shirts From <em>The IT Crowd</em>
The image on Roy’s shirt is actually a picture of the kill screen from PacMan. Kill screens are one of those rare achievements in classic arcade games – basically, if you beat so many levels, you eventually reach the kill screen, which is just a garble of data. You can’t really find ‘em much anymore in new games, but old-school ones like Donkey Kong, Centipede and PacMan all had them.

He also has this shirt, which has a bunch of PacMan ghosts on it.

This one comes right outta Final Fantasy, though you can cast “Magic Missile” in D&D. The back reads: “Guns don’t kill people, magic missiles do”.
