Wipe Shirt by design unit FIFT

This is kind of genius! Design unit FIFT, comprised of husband and wife design-duo Katsunari and Ami Igarashi, have designed Wipe Shirt (13,650 yen), a button-down with built-in microfiber cloth for wiping down glasses or cell phones. It syncs perfectly with the designer’s mission statement to promote interaction between their products and the user.

What’s great about this shirt is that it’s actually a good looking shirt; meaning, I would wear that even though I don’t wear glasses. And it’s no wonder. They consulted with a clothing designer who flaunts a degree from the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts. No edges were cut when procuring material either, using only the finest microfiber furnished by the technologically advanced fabric maker Unitika. And fear not, all you tuckers for there is a cuff version of the shirt as well.

Spoon Tamango for the finding!
