#UK This $700 ‘3D suit’ promises to be the most comfortable you’ll ever own — but it’s still not a real suit


3d Suit

Techno-fabric menswear upstart Ministry of Supply makes some pretty bold claims with its newly released « 3D suit. »

« The problem with suits is that they aren’t as comfortable as sweats, » reads the copy on their website. « We’ve set out to change that. »

To do that, the first change the company has made to the traditional suit is to throw out the wool — instead, it uses a « soft foam-like » polyester which was « molded three-dimensionally around the human form. »

Ministry of Supply claims the fabric « hovers around the human form » with a four-way stretch. 

Bonus: it doesn’t wrinkle (but it still doesn’t look quite like wool, either.)

The jacket retails for $448, and the pants are going for $248. The steep price isn’t deterring customers — both the pants and the jacket are already sold out in navy blue. 

It’s reminiscent of the infamous « fancy sweats » Tom Brady wore in his GQ Man of the Year spread.

But much like the pajama suit before it, anyone who takes a close look at this getup will agree that it does not pass as a suit. 

Though I have no doubt this look would be seen as appropriate in some circumstances, like in a casual workplace, I still have a hard time seeing it in a more traditional environment, like at a law firm or a bank — the very places men are expected to wear suits everyday.

Plus, Ministry of Supply’s « suit » retails for about as much as a respectable, traditional wool version, without many of the benefits of a formal suit. A well-fitting suit makes you feel like you’re on top of the world. A sleeping garment can never offer you that.

Yes, Ministry of Supply created a suit that is comfortable. It’s just not a suit you can actually wear like a suit. Technology isn’t going to replace traditional suits any time soon.
