The coolest feature, though, is the built-in control panel, which replaces the traditional right-hip coin pocket and allows wearers to surf for songs and adjust volume without having to remove the iPod from its dock. The jeans will retail for $200 when they make their debut in Fall 2006.

The Wired top from Sugoi ($55) has an MP3 player pocket near the shoulder; the earpiece cable loops through the so you don’t get tangled in wires while you run. The Kenpo MKT-023jacket ($275) has an interior pocket that fits an iPod and connector snugly. A control panel on the right wrist makes song selection and volume control a breeze.
