Shanghai is home to many foreign entrepreneurs and innovators, it's also the creative hub that inspired the X Suit, the suit of the future. Created by apparel manufacturers, Reouven, Nathaniel and Max Perez the X Suit is being talked about worldwide, and it's not even in production yet.
On June 19, X Suit launched their Kickstarter campaign with an end goal of $50,000. 24 hours later, they have not only completed their goal but they surpassed it at 115% funded. It came to no surprise for Max Perez, one of the Founders and creative director of the brand. "[I always knew] There was a need in the market for this".
The X Suit was created with the idea that suits should be made to wear comfortably yet still look appealing to the eye. "I was tired of coming home after a 12 hour day and feeling relieved when I took off my suit. I thought, if only there was an alternative to this". Perez says.
There is not other suit like this on the market. We've done extensive research and market segmentation for over two years to come up with designs and features that young professionals want. Our biggest component is the water resistant feature. W've built in techs that make any liquid dissipate instantly. Our other features include odour defence , wrinkle resistant and 4-way stretch. It allows for full mobility at all times - it's the everyday and everywhere suit.
The X Suit comes in 4 colours and styles, but they will only be showcased once they reach a certain amount on Kickstarter to unlock it. Whether you're a business man wanting comfort and style, or a young professional looking for something never seen before in suits, this is for you.
It's been labeled the 'Suit of the Future' by the media, and remains one of a kind as a tech enhanced suit for men. "This is the suit for the stylish man on the go, and it's the only suit he will ever need". Perez says.
We've already reached our Crowdfunding goal [but] that's only the first step. We would like to reach at least 3 times the amount to be able to produce our 3 other designs as well. Once we're able to do that, there are no limits to the X Suit.
