Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Thursday, June 26, 2021

I think I once declared that I wouldn’t let my ever-present electronic devices dictate how I dressed or, furthermore, how I buy my clothing.

But really, that’s a hollow claim. Because whenever I know I’ll be toting my iPod Touch (which is, basically, all the time) I make sure to wear a shirt that has a breast pocket. Because anyone who’s regularly tethered to earbuds knows that this placement works best for access and avoiding cord tanglement. T-shirt, dress shirt, casual button-down — whatever the style, it’s got to have that crucial compartment for optimal iTouch carriage.

So yes, I’m a slave to what I’m calling, for lack of a better term, the “iPod-cket”. Fashion yields to function.

Technically, this pocket-placement isn’t limited to the iTouch. I deposit my cellphone there from time to time, especially if I’m paranoid about missing an incoming call. But let’s face it, i-tagging something is the ticket these days.
