Custom painted iPods

MP3 players

Feeling frustrated that your iPod doesn’t sit well with your yellow shirt and green trousers? Fear not – gentlemen’s outfitters Bamford & Sons has taken the unusual step of offering to paint any new iPod bought at one of its London stores with a custom colour scheme of the buyer’s choice.

If you’ve already bought a player, tough luck – this offer is only for punters buying a brand new player. For prospective purchasers, there’s a choice of 23 designs ranging from Ferrari red, steel and techno blue through to candy apple red and jet black. Sadly no pin stripes or tweeds. For this bespoke service, you’ll pay a bespoke price – between £300 and £495. And you’ll have to wait up to three weeks to get your stylish new player.

B&S isn’t the first store to capitalise on the iPod boom. Selfridges are now offering iPod lessons for hapless new owners at £65 a pop.
