So many people own iPhones that there are now jeans designed around them. Los Angeles apparel company Joe’s Jeans is currently taking pre-orders for a new line of jeans called #Hello that can charge your iPhone while you walk.

What separates Joe’s #Hello jeans is the special pocket located near the back of the right hip where you can safely tuck away an iPhone. Placing a smartphone in that spot lets you avoid uncomfortably cramming it into your front or rear pocket, which we all know is particularly dangerous for Apple’s newest smartphones.

In addition to this convenient little pocket, Joe’s has also seen fit to equip the #Hello jeans with a battery pack capable of boosting an iPhone 6‘s battery a further 70%, bringing it back from the brink of a bad shutdown and giving you several hours of additional use. The backup battery can be removed for charging or replaced entirely if the need arises.

Being on the cutting edge of iPhone fashion isn’t cheap, however. The #Hello jeans start at around $190, and that’s not including the $49 battery pack, so think long and hard about just how badly you need iPhone-friendly pants.
