Kicking goals on Kickstarter right now is this sassy little ensemble, and what an outfit it is. Made from liquid repellant stretch fabric, the X Suit is the futuristic garment we didn’t know we’d been waiting for. Allowing for a full range of motion, the weave of the fabric makes this suit perfect for your next business meeting / dinner / wedding reception where there’s a high likelihood of having to engage in Kung Fu.
Spilt a glass of red? Don’t sweat it, it’s waterproof. Dropped food on yourself? Don’t sweat it, it’ll wash right off under a tap. Sweating it? Don’t sweat it, it’s impervious to odours. Sound too good to be true? Probably, but it hit its $50k crowdfunding goal in less than a day, so we’re curious to see more. It’s also claimed to be wrinkle resistant and crush-proof, meaning you can throw it into your overnight bag and she’ll be good to go when you get to the other end.
Available in four unique styles: ‘biker’, ‘corporate’, ‘formal’ and ‘sport’ (for when you need a suit that says ‘I’m mean business, but also wouldn’t mind squeezing a jog in between clients today’.)
Hardcore sartorial nay-sayers will no doubt shun something that isn’t tailored from virgin silk by an 80-year old Italian man in a back-lane of Milan, but we can’t all be Instagram models, so it’ll be interesting to see the popularity of modern suits such as this one continue to grow.
