The rise of gadgetry has with it given birth to a whole new set of anxieties. How do we keep these things safe? How do we keep these things clean? They are expensive, after all. Cleanliness is also next to Godliness so there’s also that(shouldn’t safety also be next to divinity?) In short, our grubby little fingers make short work out of our once beautiful smartphone screens. Nobody wants to be the person who carries a handkerchief around with them as it is no longer 1860 so what are we to do? Luckily, a new shirt is on the horizon that answers that question and then some.
VoyVoy Clothing has trotted out a new Summer Oxford button down shirt that may, upon first glance, seem like all of the rest except for one major difference. This shirt has a hidden cleaning cloth to help keep your touchscreens free of smudge and fudge. Now your cleaner friends won’t be able to give you that look. You know the one I’m talking about. The one that says “I get up a half hour early just to make sure my iPhone looks as fresh as the day I bought it.” Also, as an added bonus, this cloth can keep your glasses from looking like you just stepped through a dust storm.
The shirts are made to order direct from the NYC-based clothing manufacturer. If this seems like a good idea to you, and it should, you can scoop one up for around $98. Now we can all eat chicken wings and check our smartphones with impunity. Yay for textile-based technology!
