While we don’t always want to wear a jacket (and most of us still don’t have NFC-equipped phones), the basic idea of garments that can allow us to easily cut ourselves off from digital communication is a good one. There are plenty of situations when I have to remember to silence my phone (movies and meetings, to name just two), and sometimes it’s nice to just disable digital missives altogether. Having a method as simple as a special pocket to make it happen makes a lot of sense. As the designer notes, shoving your phone into the pocket could also be a delightfully dramatic way to end a phone call.
I’m not that interested in a jacket pocket specifically, but a pocket in a messenger bag? Sign me up.
