You may never have noticed, but most all the really nice men's polo or golf shirts do not have pockets. Now there are men's shirts that DO, but, for some strange reason, they all look alike! Or they do to me seeing as how DH has so many similar shirts hanging in his closet.
(By the way, after they have been worn once, they all have a big stain right in front. We laugh because:
he always manages to drop a bite of food on them,
he always says, "oops"
and he always acts surprised as though that never happened to him before!! LOL
This explains why I am always on the lookout for new shirts!)
His absolute favorite shirts of all time were two we bought when in Germany several years ago. The neck was zippered and so was the front pocket. He still wears those shirts and I have searched the Internet numerous times without success trying to find more like them.
So, although neither of us care to shop, it always falls to me to shop for clothes for the both of us. Therefore, in my recent "shopping sprees" I have been bringing home shirts with GASP!! no pockets. That way he can have a variety of shirts and it takes me less time to shop - trying to find shirts with pockets is always exasperating to me. (Yes, I know - I may be easily exasperated when it comes to malls and shopping.)
But, to get to the point of this little story, here is how DH solved his problem. He bought himself a whole bunch of new, v-neck white tee-shirts when we were at Sam's. First, he measured his phone to make a pattern, then he took all the tee-shirts, along with the pattern, to an alterations person and had her sew pockets on every one of the tee-shirts for wear under his nice shirts!!! Voila!! He can just reach inside the neck of his shirt to grab his phone.
I'm thinking he may be the only man around wearing tee-shirts with custom made pockets on them. What could be handier than that?
