If you’re looking for something with a SCOTTEVEST flair, but made with denim, take notice of what WTFJean has going on. They make jeans with specially-fitted pockets, lined with microfiber, meant to house your iPhone or iPod touch. In addition, they even have pockets meant to hold on to USB sticks, which we guess the pockets on your regular jeans are no good for? Oh, also, while they’re available in both male and female versions, if you’re a dide, it goes you some frontal padding for protection. Huh.
Anyhow, these will be on sale on May 2nd for $80.

Any first time parent knows the panic when their newborn appears to have a fever and drives their physician crazy with constant calling, only to be told a simple solution or to calm down. Chris Eberjer came up with Babyglow, clothing that changes color when the baby’s temperature is rising. Available in blue, pink and pastel green, the garment turns white when the temp is over 98.6º. They will become available in October for £20 (~$35.00) per pack. Until then, if your baby’s face looks redder than normal, that might be an indication that something is wrong.

We’ve brought you other crime-prevention apparel and gadgets in the past, such as the No-Contact Jacket and the Cell Phone Stun Gun. Joining the ranks is the meshy Knife-Proof T-Shirt. It’s made of “ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene fiber”—akin to the “aramid fiber” used to create body armor. With that caliber of fabric, we’re pleasantly surprised to learn the tee is also machine washable. The potentially life-saving tee will be available in Japan during June in both a short-sleeve ($190-$522 USD) and long-sleeve ($220-$590 USD) versions. However, the manufacturer, Nihon Uni, does not seem to have a website to order from.

Nobody makes plain t-shirts anymore. T-Groove is the latest in apparel with a built-in power unit and sound sensor which reacts to both the beat and frequency of the tunes being played. Obviously designed for those that seek attention on the dance floor, it can also be a fine companion to those who don’t have a date. The shirt requires 4 AAA batteries (not included) and the pack is removable so you can wash out all that partying you did the night before. Made of 100% cotton, it is available in 3 sizes for £19.99 (~$39.70) at Electric Planet.

Once you become a male over the age of 30, if you enjoy a good brew often, chances are you will develop a larger midriff to show your indulgence. Get a head start with the Beerbelly, an 80 oz. polyurethane “bladder” and an insulated neoprene “sling” that you can strap on before the next scrimmage. The gadget was devised by 3 men who wanted to sneak beer into a movie theatres and ball games. The device will hold hot or cold drinks and one size will strap on up to 40-inch waists. You can either pour the liquid into a cup or drink from the tube/nozzle. The Beerbelly carries a MSRP $39.95 and the company also offers a Winerack for the ladies.
