More than a year after it was announced and two years after we first saw a demonstration of touch-sensitive fabric, the Levi’s jacket with a smart sleeve is finally going on sale. It fits well and looks great. And by swiping or tapping the fabric on the left cuff, you can control your smartphone.
At first glance, the jacket looks just like a normal, stylish denim jacket. Available in both men’s and women’s sizes, the dark wash denim jacket is every bit as comfortable and well-made as you’d expect in a high-end Levi’s jacket. All of Jacquard’s tech is limited to the left sleeve, though even that is more subtle than you’d think. The end of the left sleeve is made of a slightly different denim material that’s been specially woven with conductive thread, allows the sleeve to act as an interactive touchpad for the jacket.
