If there’s one indication that our obsession with social media is veering dangerously into codependence, it’s Replay’s upcoming line of jeans. So intent is the Italian denim label in obliterating the divide between our real and virtual lives that its “Social Denim” collection comes with Facebook and Twitter capabilities built right in. Due to hit stores in December, each pant features a extra “fifth” pocket that contains a Bluetooth-connected transmitter. Pair the device with a smartphone and you can use one of a series of buttons to broadcast your mood and/or current location in the blink of an eye. We’d ask “why?” but the company would probably just respond with “why not?”

So tell us, is "Social Denim" haute or not?
