Marks & Spencer to sell iPod suit for men June 10, 2007Posted by grhomeboy in Fashion.
Dedicated followers of fashion won’t see any kinks > Marks & Spencer is planning to tap into the iPod craze by selling a men’s suit fitted with touchpad controls.
The MusicStyle wool and Lycra suit from Bagir features five buttons as part of an electronic control panel which can be worn on the sleeve or the inner lapel. It also comes with a strategically placed pocket for the iPod so as not to cause a bulge, and has discreet loops to hide the earphone wires.
“The cut of the suit follows the dictates of the latest fashion; hence from the outside it looks like a regular well-made suit,” said a statement from Bagir. “With a few presses on the sleeve buttons, the wearer can easily play, pause and rewind the songs on his player, as well as adjust the volume.”
The touchpad technology is provided by Eleksen’s ElekTex smart fabric, which is used in everything from bags to cycling shorts. The black pinstripe suit will cost £149.
