Ditto. I'll wear some of my other SolarWinds shirts instead

Also, realised I'm wearing a SolarWinds polo right now

Me too, outside my building.

Who are we kidding? Work doesn't stop AT work. It can also be worn for (casual) dinner attire, a brisk walk in the evening, etc.

I'd telecommute to Austin under the right circumstances . . .

I'd definitely wear one! But unfortunately I don't own any of them. I do have a couple of other Solarwinds shirts. Does that count?

Level 13

SW Polo with SW Hat with SW Zip-up sweatshirt.

it's been a tad nippy so i've been wearing my SW Labcoat while carrying my Thwack pack just trying to save up for the travel mug to complete my look

Level 12

Contest not open to Canada,

Level 15

You can still get thwack points for participating!

Level 20

IKR... somehow I missed this o.O

Uhg I must be working too much...

Level 9

As someone who only fits in tall sizes I find this contest.... disturbing.  Just as you would fine me in a belly shirt.... disturbing.

I bet you'd at least earn fictional adatole  points for sending in a picture of yourself wearing a SW Lab coat.  I should cover that middle area better than plumbers' shirts that can't say "No" to you-know-what.

Level 20

Are these ever going to show up in the Thwack Store???

This is not the rack you are looking for #itisyourdestiny

Okay, I am going throw down a little Old School here because I already run these products today and I thought it would be unfair to take a shirt away from someone else. So here is me wearing my Solarwinds Labs shirt in front of my favorite Solarwinds tchotchke, The Solarwinds Network Ninja! <pun intended!>

Oh, also, picked up my shirt at the Columbus SWUG!  Highly recommend going to a local SWUG meeting for anyone in the IT industry.
