A new pair of jeans was on my shopping list for Christmas. I was on the lookout for something new and innovative when a friend recommended that I have a look at the new Levi’s Redwire DLX Jeans.
Levi’s Redwire DLX Jeans are a new range of ‘iPod jeans’ that features built-in headphones, joystick and docking cradle.
The RedWire DLX range has been designed for both men and women, and has a special side pocket with a white leather patch to store an iPod.
A four-way joystick on the watch pocket allows the user to play/pause, track forward/back and adjust the volume without removing the player.
“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 US brand president. Adding to the geek quotient are built-in, retractable headphones and a docking cradle that allows users to look at their iPod screens and control it via the jeans.
The company describes the jeans as “machine washable once the iPod has been removed”.
Though I love the idea, I don’t know whether I will end up buying a pair, carrying the iPod in my pocket seems to do the trick for me.
