Wearcom Jeans With Touch-Transparent iPhone Pocket



Now you can look like you;re playing with yourself as you innocently use your phone.

Alphyn Industries’ DELTA415 Wearcom jeans may as well have been called the Dork-O-Tron 3000, for they are nerdy in the extreme. They are also flat-out awesome, and if I was the kind of person who spent $160 on a pair of jeans, then I’d be al over them. Or all in them, I guess.

The Wearcoms are simple: the front right pocket has been replaced by a see-through phone pouch, complete with a protective flap to cover it.

Apparently inspired by the G-suits worn by fighter pilots, the jeans have a clear pocket through which the wearer can use a multi-touch screen, and a button hole through which you can thread a headphone cable.

It is of course ridiculous, although I can see at least one scenario where it would be useful: on a bike. You could ride and still have your iPhone ready to glance at maps or change the music you’re beaming to your Bluetooth speaker, all without having to put it on a handlebar bracket.

Orienting your phone screen-out does have some problems, though. Even with the flap closed, a good whack is going to break the screen and not just crack or dent the back.

The jeans are made of indigo-dyed denim, and come in fatty-unfriendly sizes of 28 to 38 inches. Available now.

Thanks: Jen!
