It’s not haute couture, and it’s not pret-a-porter. But they are certainly “True Wetsuits.” Confused? Quiksilver Japan launched the first ever suit that can be worn on business occasions, parties, and in surfing. Even more confused?
Let’s see. The jacket and pants are made of a 2mm super high-stretch jersey neoprene, the same fabric used to make regular wetsuits. The parts are joined with glued and blind-stitched seams (GBS), a method especially developed for wetsuit production. The pinholes do not penetrate the fabric to prevent water from coming inside the wetsuit.
The pockets are designed flat to prevent them from catching water while surfing. The breast pockets have been designed specifically for use outside the water.
