Jeans with built-in coffee cup holderIPortable Cup Holder love how people extend the use of designs to solve their current problems.

There are no rubbish bins on this Reading town train station platform, nowhere to recycle a used coffee cup. This passenger has decided not to throw the empty cup on the floor, or carry it in his hand. The elastic properties of modern trousers afford him wedging the cup in his back pocket.

Maybe trouser waistbands already come with attachments to carry cups, like the loop in my sketch.
