Samsung has designed a pair of jeans with smaller pockets that were made specifically for the new Galaxy Z Flip3. This was achieved successfully in collaboration with denim specialists with aim of calling attention to the phone’s compact size when folded.
It however comes at a rate of R17k.
A limited-edition run will offer 450 pairs at a price tag of around R17 000. Luckily, the “statement piece” will also come with a free Galaxy Z Flip3, which retails for around R12 000 by itself.
With no need for large pockets when using the new Galaxy Z Flip3, the back pockets on the jeans have been removed, with one “flipped” to the front thigh and scaled down to the exact dimensions of the smartphone.
The jeans also have two large Z patterns stitched over the front pockets. To make the special edition jeans stand out more, both the Galaxy Z Flip3 and Z Flip Pocket Denim will arrive in stylish Dr. Denim packaging.
“Smartphones are often not pocket friendly, so we’ve leveraged Dr. Denim’s style credentials to design jeans that shake up the pocket norm and perfectly fit our compact Galaxy Z Flip3,” said Samsung Mobile’s Head of Brand Marketing Hayley Walton according to the publication. “Our Galaxy Z Flip3 users expect the very best in design and pocketability, and what better to accompany our premium phones than the perfect pair of bespoke jeans.”
Customers can purchase the Z Flip Pocket Denim via Dr Denim’s website in both men’s and women’s styles.
