Computer nerds are hardly the best ambassadors of fashion – unless of course you happen to be a fan of ‘geek chic’. But this is exactly what IT giant Microsoft seems to be hoping for from its just-launched clothing line with US rapper Common.

Tapping into the nostalgia “of when PCs were just starting to change our lives,” the line’s retro logos, classic photos (including a mug shot of chief-geek Bill Gates) – “showcase the DOS days of the software company.”

And if it can appeal to just a fraction of the billion people who currently use its products, then the firm must surely be onto a winner. It’s almost worth buying for the name alone...wait for it...'Softwear by Microsoft.'
