Touch of class?: J.Crew & Jimmy Fallon's The Pocket Dial is for those who wish to look like dapper gentlemen.

Jimmy Fallon has partnered with J.Crew to launch an iPhone case that doubles as a pocket square for the dapper gentleman. 

"Because carrying your phone in your pants is so 2014," says Fallon. 

The idea is to "class up" what became a common trend he was seeing at the office: iPhones tucked into blazer pockets. 

 

"My assistant and I stayed up one night after the show and hot glued a pocket square to an iPhone case to make the first version," the funnyman said. 

"I must have looked like a crazy person walking into [J.Crew CEO] Mickey Drexler's office with it and pitching him the idea, but I brought ice cream (Ben & Jerry's The Tonight Dough) to help smooth things over." 

Proceeds of the sales will be go towards the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, a Kenya-based charity that protects Africa's elephants from ivory poaching and extinction. 

The Pocket Dial retails for US$48 (RM205). — AFP Relaxnews
