Express Play List Jacket
Israeli fashion designer Bagir is using its Express Men clothes line to introduce the Play List Jacket. The company says it recognizes the trouble of storing an iPod in the pocket of a designer suit and has tailored a blazer just to avoid the wear and clutter that the Apple device can create: a special pocket holds the iPod safely and routes the headphone cables through the inside of the jacket to keep them out of the way. Soft controls on the inner lapel, attached by the Dock Connector, also let the wearer quickly switch tracks without taking the iPod out of its pocket.
Express hopes to offer the Play List Jacket later this month for $248, and will be accompanied by a set of pants to match its designer look.
