Deep Cuts

  • Najib Benouar


The three brothers at Apolis Activism dropped their Spring ’10 line over the weekend, and this olive chambray Survival Shirt caught our eye.

Specifically…those pockets.

They’re more like upper-rib pockets than breast pockets—a trick they cribbed from WWII-era field shirts. Originally, the idea was to allow for more storage and easier access to ammo or a trusty field map, but in our case, “ammo” and “field map” would probably be replaced by “phone” and “notepad” when heading out for the day.

Sure, it might look a bit askew at first glance, but we’re in Louis Sullivan’s camp on this one: form follows function.
