Marks and Spencer iPod Back To School Range
I know kids are rocking iPods and mobiles as soon as they’ve stopped bottle-feeding but c’mon!
Teachers have a hard enough time keeping the pupils focused and, while it scares me, stab-proof hoodies andÂ kevlar school-bags serve a purpose but Marks and Spencer have gone and released a new line of school uniforms which have iPod/MP3 compatibility!
The new line of interactive clothing features blazers and winter coats with five function keypad controllers sewnÂ into the inside the lapels.
This gives theÂ school-goer complete remote access to their iPods without really drawing attention to themselves(!) or should I say pulling the unit out to fiddle with and have it confiscated by teachers duringÂ exams and other important studious pass-times!
They’ve missed the chance of supplying the little darlings with wireless earphones so they can be totally covert!
The jackets are made of 100% polyester, made from recycled materials, and come with both water and stain protection.
â€œMarks and Spencerâ€™s 2008 Back to School collection is optimized for wear comfort as well as for the use of an iPod on the go: a strategically placed iPod pocket which doesnâ€™t bulge, an iPod connector with a hidden circuit, concealed controls for operating the settings, lapel loops concealing the earphone wires.â€
The blazers come in black only and will retail for aboutÂ Â£25-Â£30 and coats range from Â£35-Â£40 from good ol’Â Marks and Spencer.
