“It’s wild to think that the suit is still so widely worn around the world, given all of its design flaws,” say Abdul Abasi and Greg Rosborough, the New York-based designers who have made it their mission to reinvent the suit for the modern man. The pair met at the Fashion Institute of Technology in 2008 and, following stints designing at Engineered Garments and Ralph Lauren respectively, they founded their tailoring brand in 2013. “The traditional men’s suit doesn’t belong in the 21st century,” they say. “It’s not working for guys any more. It has no place on men in warmer, more humid climates who need to go from the train to the office to dinner to the gym—it’s a vestige of the past.” As a solution they have developed a lightweight, ergonomic alternative that retains the canvassing of a traditional suit but eliminates all buttons bar one, reduces the collar lapel to a simple, elegant line and adds panels of wool jersey fabric to make a suit that wouldn’t be out of place in an office, but which moves like activewear. This, gents, is the suit of the future.
