You’ve got a problem. You’re a hiking traditionalist, eschewing the high-tech nylons and wicking technology for a classic pair of German lederhosen. But you still live in the modern world, and would like your pants to be able to be able to send and receive cellular phone calls. Then, my friend, the cell phone lederhosen are for you.

These all-weather fancypants are made by the olde-time German clothing company Lodenfrey. They’ve got a cell phone sewn into the leg and an embedded mouthpiece in the suspenders. No word on whether there’s an earpiece or not. I kind of hope the pants just talk to you.

I’m not a huge fan of jackets with built-in MP3 players, but I will go on record as saying that I would wear this in a heartbeat.

As long as I didn’t have to leave my apartment.
