Levi makes iPod controlling jeans
Denim giant Levi Strauss has designed a pair of jeans able to control a wearer's Apple iPod music player.
The RedWire DLX Jeans will have an iPod remote control and docking station fitted in its pockets, and comes complete with attached headphones.
To be launched in August, the jeans will cost approximately $200 (£114).
Levi Strauss is not the first to produce iPod-compatible clothing, but it is believed to be the first to do so for trousers or jeans.
No pictures have yet been revealed of the RedWire DLX, or details of how exactly the owner will be able to wash them.
About 42 million iPods have been sold so far, fuelling the creation of a burgeoning global accessories industry including everything from simple covers to torches and radio transmitters.
Outdoor clothing company Burton Snowboards unveiled the first iPod-compatible waterproof jacket in 2003, and other firms have followed suit.
Levi Strauss is continuing to turn around its fortunes after falling sales and higher costs hit its results in recent years.
To cut costs, the US firm has shut its last remaining American factories and moved all production overseas.
