In the expansive world of men’s tailored clothing, it’s understandable that deciding what to wear can be quite daunting. So what’s a guy to do? Hire a personal shopper? Could be pricey. Locate a suit that slips on like a pair of kids’ footie pajamas? Yes, unfortunately, that could be a real option soon, and it’s called the Suitsy. DETAILS has the lowdown.

It may look like a suit jacket and slacks with a white button-down, but really the Suitsy is a one-piece bodysuit – complete with concealed zipper. Supposedly it’s as comfortable as your pajamas.
Creator Jesse Herzog calls his new product a “revolution” in menswear. And on the Betabrand Think Tank website, over 1,200 people agree with him. Fortunately, DETAILS contributor Max Berlinger does not. “Novel? Yes, sure. Funny? Totally. But an actual alternative to, you know, just wearing a damn suit? I’m not so convinced,” he says. “I mean, is this actually that much more comfortable than just wearing your standard two-piece? And think of the possible embarrassment of being found out as a Suitsy-wearer. In the DETAILS office you’d be judged—and mocked—accordingly.”
We couldn’t agree more, Max. Men of the world: Either wear a suit or don’t. Leave the bodysuits to the ladies, please and thank you.
