Everyone knows that professional conference goers like myself attend events not to listen to presentations, not to network but to collect schwag. Over the past couple of years I’ve done fairly well collecting tech t-shirts and I decided to create a weekly series critiquing tech companies t-shirt offerings in the expectation that a company with a great t-shirt is a prime candidate to have a great product also.

If you’d like your t-shirt reviewed, flick me an email to arrange things. The judges decision is, of course, final and very little correspondence will be entered into (perhaps).
Taking pride of place by virtue of the fact that they’re sole sponsors of CloudAve is Zoho. Acquired during the Office 2.0 conference last September, the Zoho shirt is an understated black crew neck.
- Embroidery instead of a printed logo
- Understated – can be worn out to dinner
- Black – simple, easy and hides the traditional “engineer’s armpits” stains
- Made in Pakistan, so questionable labor and environmental standards
