Street-smart MP3 Music T-Shirts

Despite having cell phones and MP3 players, most men I know cling tenaciously to the practice of carrying everything they need in their jacket pocket or distributed among various pockets of their pants (which, let's be honest, can lead to less than attractive results). We just can't seem to shake the notion that any carrying case other than a briefcase, messenger bag or backpack is a handbag, no matter what you call it. The "man purse" is still controversial here in the U.S., whatever the trend may be in Europe.

Until we're able to erase from our collective memories the man-purse episode of Seinfeld, we can just be thankful that these days cell phones and MP3 players are offered in super slim and lightweight designs, and that there are even some items of clothing specially designed to hide our devices.

The MP3 Music T-Shirt by Music and Sons, is an ingeniously designed and stylish wearable for you and your music player. You have to look close to even see that it's designed to hold your device. Your iPod or other MP3 player fits in a little pocket at the front of the t-shirt, and the special, short stereo earphones that come with the t-shirt connect to your player through an integrated cable, and pop out at the neck of the t-shirt in the back (see photos after the jump).

Unlike a lot of shirts and jackets made with special pockets for devices, these t-shirts are not purely for athletic activities. Their "street-style Italian design" is also "unisex." That term, when used in connection with an item of clothing, usually means "made for men, but yeah, women can wear them too" but I think these t-shirts do work for men or women (not that I wouldn't want a more feminine - i.e., lower - neckline if it were offered as an option). Each shirt is unique, as they're individually hand-printed. And, yes, they're machine washable, integrated cables and all (the wires are waterproof).

The shirts can be purchased from the Music and Sons online store for 45EUR (about $69). Check out their weekly specials, which now include a couple of designs in their Black-eco line, made of organic cotton or bamboo fabric.

So, your iPod goes in the shirt, cell phone in the pocket of your shorts, sunglasses atop your head . . . what else is there?

Music and Sons is offering a 10Eur discount to Popgadget readers through July 1, 2008 (except on items in their weekly specials) . Just enter coupon code POPGADGET at checkout.
