Lyle & Scott unveil contactless payment jacket


In news I’m going to call ‘dangerous’, Lyle & Scott have unveiled a smart jacket with contactless payment technology built in to the sleeve, effectively letting you pay for anything with the wave of an arm!

Gone will be the days of juggling shopping bags whilst struggling to unearth a purse and the cards within. Pretty exciting, I’m sure you’ll agree.

Unfortunately it’s only available for men at the moment, and for £150 at that, but once somebody else gets round to making something similar for busy, tech-savvy women then I’ll probably be near the front of the queue.

The only problem I can see is that you might make yourself look a bit silly should you go out in a different coat and forget that you can’t pay with your cuff…
