Suit up with a nanotech suit

Move over moisturizing jeans, waterproof and stainproof suits are the new black.
Custom suit site Indochino has come out with its Ultimate Tech Collection. Not only is it smartphone-friendly, the fabric is high-tech and won't wrinkle, stain, or get smelly, and it'll help protect you from the elements.
Let's start with the Smart Pocket. It's a handy little breast pocket inside the jacket which is translucent and touch-friendly so you don't have to take your phone out of the pocket to check the time, turn off an alarm, or answer it. Just above the pocket is an earphone clip to wrangle your cord and a rubberized grommet to feed your earphones through -- best of all, the hole is covered by the lapel.
When you shell out money for this supersuit, it comes with a Storm Flap. It's really just a duck down dickey that snaps to the inside of the jacket to protect your chest from the cold and rain without making you look like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. It comes in three colors: orange (?!), navy, and light blue.
And now, the pièce de résistance: the suit's Nanotech material. It's a hybrid of natural fibers and technology which repels stains, liquid, and odors. The fabric is still breathable and dry-cleanable (just in case you find a way to get it dirty).
So go ahead, run to work in the rain and then spill some coffee on our pants before a big meeting: the suit will still look pristine for your big presentation.
