I mean, can you see yourself wearing that. If you can, may I advise against it?

There. That's better. Hopefully, I've just cured you of that particular faux pas.

Thankfully for current and future generations, Tron: Legacy is proving to be a bit more tasteful in its outfit choices. Here's Olivia Wilde and a 'Siren' from the new movie:

All right. Maybe not. They're still just a little too sci-fi, aren't they?

But the merchandisers of Tron: Legacy know this and have come up with "similar but different" fashion goodies. Consider this $795 shoe, for example:

Or this handbag:

You could get away with them, don't you think?

But, if you have the cash and truly are a geek, how about this: an actual lightcycle you can ride on roads?

Now that's cool.
