Video: The Suitsy — a onesie that becomes a business suit

Video: The Suitsy — a onesie that becomes a business suit

It frankly never occurred to me that the conventional business suit could be improved upon by being made into a jumpsuit in which a dress shirt, jacket, and pants are sewn together into a convenient onesie. After viewing the video of the Suitsy below, I’m still not convinced it’s an improvement.

Neither is GQ:

We’ve gone too far. It’s all over. We’ve lost. There’s a man out in San Francisco seeking funding for “The Suitsy,” a one-piece suit that thinks you’re just too lazy for a two-piece or three-piece option.

The Suitisy’s creator, Jesse Herzog, calls his invention a sartorial “revolution,” selling it by asking men to “[i]magine looking professional but feeling like you are in pajamas.”

GQ’s John Jannuzzi counters with:

To that we challenge you to imagine yourself not being lazy and buying a proper tailored suit instead. Details like fake shirt sleeves and hidden zippers make the whole idea conceivable, but clearly so much is left to be desired. When did putting on a shirt, jacket, and pants become such a chore?
