When you think of a Nerd the first thing that comes to mind is:
(1) short sleeve white button-up shirt, (2) high-water black pants and (3) lace up black shoes.
For most of us who are nerds, we have evolved to adopted a more trendy appearance. We no longer fit into the nerd stereotype. Although we glory in our nerd intellect, we no longer want the outward appearance of nerdism. Sure we always want others to see just how intellect of a nerd we are but pocket protectors and calculator watches' are pretty whack these days.
So why not embrace hip and trendy fashion combined with subtle nerd fashion traits? I've learned that it pays (literally) to be a (Quintessential) well-dressed nerd. After all, even nerds are intelligent enough to know there are times we must conform to the norm.
