Jeans have become a necessity as much as coffee is. But what happens when you put the two together? You get American Eagle Outfitter's new Denim X Café line, which has the brand's classic high performance stretch denim made with 2.25 grams of recycled coffee grounds per jean.

If you're worried that you're going to smell like you spilled coffee on yourself, fret not. In fact, Racked reports that the jeans are supposed to help ward off odours and also protect wearers from UV rays. How nifty!

The collection will be available online on 15 October this year. Good news: they ship to Malaysia.
