Gent's outfitters Pink may offer an iPod nano suit and tie, but clothing firm Bagir has gone one better, announcing plans to launch a tailored iPod suit this coming November.
The suit uses touch sensitive iPod controls developed by ElekTex, a similar technology to that used in the Kyono range of iPod jackets.
Bagir works with major retailers throughout the US and UK including Brooks Brothers, Lands End and Marks & Spencer.
The suit jacket integrates Eleksen's ElekTex smart fabric touchpad technology, which transforms the lapel into a five-button electronic control panel. (The suit is also machine washable and wrinkle-resistant).
"We selected Eleksen's unique touch-sensitive fabric to create an accessible interface between our clients and their iPods," said Offer Gilboa, CEO of Bagir."ElekTex is the only product on the market that is not disruptive to the design of our suits."
Bagir has been working with another supplier of wearable interfaces, but chose to adopt Eleksen's technology because its more durable and easier to design into a suit.
"This partnership is proof that wearable technology is moving from its roots in sportswear to the boardroom and from the slopes to the street. The partnership with Bagir is testimony to the fact that ElekTex is helping to redefine the way that the apparel industry participates in the growing trend for portable entertainment," said Robin Shephard, CEO of Eleksen.
The Bagir iPod Suit will be available in five styles, and has a suggested retail price of £149.
