Nothing shows your alliance to your favorite geek pastime like, say, a Batman t-shirt. But not everyone works in Silicon Valley, where employees can roll in to the office in streetwear. And although dress has become more casual since the Mad Men era (ties for men, matching shoes and bag for women), some offices prefer business dress for their employees.

With that in mind, I’ve found a few fun things for you to wear to your next business meeting that happen to be subtle and not easily recognizable as geeky. This way you can maintain your superhero- (or space hero-)inspired confidence while keeping your geeky proclivities on the down-low.

The good news is, if you meet someone does recognize these items, you may have made a new breakroom buddy.

So what secretly geeky thing have you ever worn at the office? Let me know in the comments.
