Transparent Shirt Pocket

Identity badge display window for your shirt

You take the time to dress nicely for work every morning, but then you add the finishing touch: an ugly, plastic ID badge dangling inelegantly from your shirt. Since when has a piece of plastic hanging from your thorax been congruous with formal attire?

Instead, why not equip your shirt with a transparent pocket? Made from fabric mesh the same color as your shirt, and sewn on over the regular pocket, the transparent pocket is nearly invisible. When you put your ID in it, the badge shows through, identifying you in professional non-dangly manner.

       My shirt pockets have been embroidered with my identity (well, my initials) since I was so high.

       That's a great product; easy to do, is positive, and no one can complain! :)

       Love the look (+), but most identity cards I've seen are also access cards to buildings.
Would there be a lot of people rubbing their chests against an access reader?

       'Cause that'd be super.   

       Because identity theft would then become much too difficult.   

       But, business cards would be a [+]

       How high are you? (a new greeting, say it with me)

       As regards crotcheted badge cozies, I have tried this when my shirt presented no easy place to clip the badge. It was fairly cozy, but people were uncomfortable looking down there to see my badge.

       [Curry] - How high?
Oops - just saw [Burns's anno].
  

       Good idea though
