calling for geeks with deep pockets, the Zegna Sport Icon Jacket might be the jacket you have been waiting all your gadget life. we are serious, because this is probably the first connected jacket in the market that offers Bluetooth connectivity, complete with joystick control pad on the cuff for answering calls, controlling music and more, while an integrated microphone located at the collar facilitates handsfree voice interaction with connected device (such as making calls and blasting voice commands to Siri or Google Voice), though you will have to supply your own earphones. strange, cos’ we thought since you will be using earbuds designed for smartphones, which means you would already have a mic? well, that’s just a thought.
anyway, speaking of earphones, it even has a convenient “earphones stay” to keep your audio buds within easy reach. on the comfort business end, this triple layer jacket features (seriously, we are tempted to say “apparel technology” but…) such as taped seams, detachable quilted body warmer, protective interlining layer for shielding you from electromagnetic wave and a waterproof design made from 100 percent polyester to keep you nice and dry during those long cold winter. available in three colors: black, blue and red, the Zegna Sport Icon Jacket commands a price you would expect to come from Ermenegildo Zegna, which is a cool $1,295 a piece. ouch. now you know why we said “geeks with deep pockets.” more look after the break.
