There will be plenty of news soon about the latest mobile release from Apple, but it got Bangkok-based artist Pierre Cerveau to thinking about what Apple’s flagship product would have looked like if it had been released long before the first iPhone. Complete with Apple Macintosh Plus styling, the concept phone includes a monochrome display that probably won’t play Oregon Trail or Number Munchers, an old school rotary dial, serial cable charging port, mundane plastic housing and a whopping 512kb of memory. It’s obviously only a concept design piece, but it’s incredibly well put together.

We demand a lot from our shirts, which is why we like the shirts that come from Batch. Batch makes shirts that are durable, stylish, and well-built (by hand!)–without the hefty price tag. Case in point: Batch’s Specialist Utility Shirt. Equal parts rugged yet refined and stylish yet durable, this shirt expertly balances simplicity, detail and function with its Giza cotton construction, oversized chest pockets with side expansion and spread collar. Those same details make it great with jeans or worn open over your favorite tee. Dress better with Batch.
