American fashion designer Thom Browne developed a wetsuit line inspired by the traditional menswear suit.
We had already seen a wetsuit for business meetings. It was launched in 2015 by Quiksilver Japan. But now, Thom Browne changes the paradigm with a wetsuit that looks like an executive suit.
The neoprene model, available in medium and large sizes, could be yours for $3,900. Do you find it expensive? Well, blame it on "haute couture."
The wetsuit was named "Trompe L'Oeil" - in English, "Optical Illusion" - and showcases all the elements of a classic business suit.
The trousers, jacket, top collar, lapels, and tie are merged into a single, streamlined garment.
The new surfing attire features a back zipper and is part of Browne's 2017 Spring/Summer collection. The limited edition units were handmade by wetsuit manufacturer Shane Jones.
