When it comes to technology, Japan is usually a cut above the rest. It’s not all robots either, as FlexTech Suits are made from the Japanese four-way stretch material typically found in fitnesswear. These custom suits are stylish, breathable and described by the makers as “crazy comfortable.”
LA label Sene is designing the bespoke FlexTech Suits with the same attention to detail as its $3000 suits for a fraction of the cost. From US $415, you can grab a blazer and pants online, with a 19 question Smart Fit Quiz providing all the necessary information to generate your custom-fitted suit. Then the garment arrives in the mail 2-3 weeks later. Sene is designing Flex suits for both men and women.
Beyond the comfortable fit, FlexTech Suits benefit from moisture wicking technology. The fibres drag-out sweat and help to regulate body heat. Sene’s FlexTech material is created in the same Japanese mill as Lululemon’s successful ABC shorts and pants line that launched in 2014.
FlexTech Suits are also travel-friendly. The wrinkle-resistant fabric allows you to fold down a suit for luggage and the garments are also machine washable, saving you the time and money required for a steam clean. Plus there are plenty of pockets for a phone, wallet, and other goodies.
“Technical fabrics have already revolutionised casual wear,” says Ray Li, Founder and CEO of Sene. “Now it’s time to remix the custom tailoring with performance fabrics that look sharp and are insanely comfortable.”
Sene has launched a Kickstarter campaign with significant early bird discounts for customers who sign up to their email list. The campaign will help Sene fund fabrics, custom colourways as well as develop new FlexTech applications such as FlexTech Joggers.
Each bespoke garment comes with a 60 Day Fit Guarantee for peace of mind. All alterations, remakes, exchanges and returns are free of charge.
