American Eagle s line of pants for men are already equipped to hold bigger phones, but it is actively working on reworking its line of clothes for women. L.L. Bean, known for their sportswear, too is working on its women s clothing line. Jeans, with their frustratingly small pockets, however are likely to see a change sooner than later. Fashion giants Levi s and are Lee working on pocket designs for jeans that are aesthetic, yet very practical.
It is hardly surprising that fashion brands are giving so much attention to large sized mobile devices. Nearly all brands now have smartphones with displays bigger than 5-inch. Samsung s Galaxy Note series is quite popular among consumers, and Apple too recently broke all its previous sales records when it sold 10 million new iPhones in the first three days. The latter though had to face the ire of its buyers when a few started complaining about how their iPhone 6 Plus had bent when they kept it in their trouser pockets. This triggered an avalanche of sorts as everyone from individuals to rival companies took jabs at the Cupertino giant in a social media frenzy that came to be termed as Bendgate.
