Levi's has announced its new line of iPod-ready RedWire DLX Jeans, available worldwide in autumn 2006.

The unisex jeans feature a built-in iPod docking cradle, joystick and retractable headphones.

A special joystick is built into the jeans' watch pocket that offers controls to allow the wearer to play, pause, track forward, track back and adjust the volume control without ever removing the iPod from the pocket.

The iPod docking cradle is housed within a side pocket. Levi's designed the pocket so that the iPod buldge is "virtually eliminated." The cradle has a red conductive ribbon that allows users to remove their iPod from the pocket to view its screen while staying connected. The jeans are machine washable.

A white leather patch and joystick, bluffed back pockets with hidden stitching, and minimalist buttons and rivets suggest the iPod's famously pure design.
