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.
