    Can any of you explain what this all means, and how it will be of any use to anybody - we are baffled here in the office (even the iPod owners)

    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.

    iPod industry

    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.
    Would any of you get some?

    Yes. But only because I don't own an iPod.

    If I had iPod pants I'm pretty sure getting some would be fuxing tricky.

    It's prolly not the best way to attract wimmins.
    My childhood was typical, summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds, pretty standard really. At the age of 12 I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen, a Zoroastrian woman named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum, it's breathtaking, I suggest you try it.

    Sorry. I own an iPod also, and I have no idea what that means. I'll ask around for you.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    Probably has a holster for the ipod (think Gareth in The Office), also a little control in one of the pockets - much like you get on the steering wheels of cars - enabling the ipod wearer to adjust the volume or skip a track without getting the ipod out and using that.

    Awesome
    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    omg! a little bag sewn into the inside of ones trousers. one that you can move your fingers around in! and store portable devices in! even trail the wires of headphones out of!


    OMFG! they should patent this before people start ripping them off.

    maybe they should make, like universal ones, that fit other things, like keys and mobile phones and wallets.

    infact you saw me write that. i'll sue anyone who tries it
