Thom Browne Trompe L’Oeil Wetsuit Looks Like a Business Suit

If you thought business suits and surfing culture were total opposite, you probably haven’t seen Thom Browne’s new wetsuit. Called “Trompe L’Oeil”, the neoprene wetsuit showcases all the elements of a classic business suit and even a tie! The hand-crafted $3,900 haute couture item is part of his Spring/Summer collection. It turns out that Browne put a lot of thought and work into it, teaming up with renowned wetsuit creator Shane Jones.

I personally don’t think many surfers would like to drop $4K in a wetsuit and being styled as a business man!? But the concept is interesting!
