Men's Suit With Smart Fabric iPod Controls

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

Here's a dashing and urbane suit designed by Bagir and Eleksen that transforms the suit's lapel into a control panel for controlling iPods. As seen in the above picture, just make the universal gesture that you're reaching for a weapon inside the jacket pocket to control the iPod. The suit is machine-washable and wrinkle-resistant, so no matter what sort of fights occur at the office, the iPod suit will be ready to go for another day's adventure in no time.

The iPod suit uses Eleksen's ElekTex smart fabric touch pad technology to actually carry out the iPod manipulation. This isn't the only product to feature ElekTex, however. It was just a few months ago that a backpack was released with the very same smart fabric technology. It seemed to work decently back the, so this iPod suit shouldn't be complete garbage. We'll see come November when it's released for around $280.
