Over the years, I have noticed that geeks seem to steer towards a few fashion trends that fall outside of the mainstream. It was only recently that I broke away from the black pants, black boots, and black heavy metal t-shirts genre of dress. Other geeks I know go with the full goth look or stick with wearing humorous t-shirts that only other geeks get (e.g., T-shirt of the week: Kwisatz Haderach, T-shirt of the week: Cosa Nostra Pizza, and T-shirt of the week: Shield of Sir Robin). And a good number of geeks have wardrobes filled with clothes from various hardware and software vendors. Another IT favorite I've seen is a unique version of business casual, which involves the most ill-fitting, worn out khakis and polo shirts that pass corporate muster.
