Is that an iPod in your pocket or are you just pleased to hear me?
We’ve seen the MP3 sunglasses; now get ready for the next big brand to reach the digital age, with an announcement from jeans company Levi Straus that a pair of iPod enabled denims is just around the corner.
Dubbed the world’s first iPod-compatible jeans the new RedWire DLX Jeans for men and women will seamlessly integrate iPod plug and play technology.
Designed to be compatible with most iPod systems and features include a special joystick incorporated into the jeans’ watch pocket to enable easy operation of your iPod.
“In designing the jeans we considered both function and fashion – the result is a uniquely functional, yet stylish, great fitting jean,” said Robert Hanson, Levi’s
The joystick comes into play as a remote control externally designed into the jeans’ watch pocket to enable operation of the iPod. Four-way controls allow the wearer to easily play/pause, track forward, track back and adjust the volume control without ever removing the iPod from the pocket.
Finally, a ‘handy wire retractor’ headphone unit will be built directly into the jean to help prevent tangles and efficiently manage the iPod earphone wires.
The jean is machine washable once the iPod is removed.
