Do the men in your lives keep ruining their smart, sleek look by rummaging around in their pockets? For their iPod I meant. Now they can go from meeting to meeting with ease, free hands and stylish, budget comfort.
M&S are planning a £149 wool and Lycra suit with the addition of specially-designed Elektex fabric which turns the inner lapel into a five button control centre for their iPod. They claim it “transforms clothing into must-have fashion for the billion-dollar portable MP3 and mobile phone market”. However, you’ll need to invest some time in creating playlists – the suit is designed to cunningly conceal both iPod and earbuds, but changing artist or playlist requires manual disconnection.
The souped-up jacket will be available for £90 in a classic black pinstripe, with matching trews at £59 in nine stores.
