Marks and Spencer launches iPod-ready school uniform

UK high street retailer Marks and Spencer has, it seems, got down with the kids and launched a range of school uniforms that come with iPod support.

There will be four jackets in the range for boys and girls that according to Marks and Sparks have been "Cleverly designed to securely contain iPods and neatly conceal wires for music on the move".

Costing between £25 and £40 and coming in classic school uniform black, the blazers and jackets are made from recycled materials and feature a strategically placed iPod pocket which doesn't bulge, an iPod connector with a hidden circuit, concealed controls for operating the settings, lapel loops concealing the earphone wires.

Mothers will be pleased to know that the clothing also features a "Stormwear" finish that repels water while the "Stain Defence" finish repels stains so you'll only have to wash it once a term.

Kids will be pleased they can sit in double maths and listen to their tunes.
