Ermenegildo Zegna's iPod-ready iJacket

If you're not exactly feeling the bevy of snowboard-related iPod jackets, and wouldn't be caught dead in Levi's RedWire DLX jeans (us either), Ermenegildo Zegna is rolling out a fashionable alternative to those slightly bulkier offerings. While we've already got the means to control Apple's media-playing gem in nearly every manner imaginable, Zegna's iJacket rocks a stylish, red shell with a subtle control pad on the left sleeve. There's nothing atypical aside the usual volume, track, and play / pause controls, but this "luxury sport jacket" requires no special handling when all dirtied up and ready for the washing machine. The oh-so-versatile coat presumably plays nice with any 'Pod sporting a dock connector, and while the $750 pricetag might be asking a bit much, we must admit Apple's newly-released (PRODUCT) RED nano would fit the part quite well here.
