I’ve been digitally babysitting this Teätora Packable Suit since it dropped. I want it so bad. I’m not proud of myself, but I’m also clearly not ashamed to admit it*. I have zero need for a suit right now, absolutely no upcoming life events that would require packable clothing, and a browser history to prove that I’m fully aware of the perils of traveling in the near (or not so near) future, yet the tab stays open. That’s dedication, baby.
(*Are there more important matters at hand? Yes, dear reader, there are. Know that I’m abreast on those as well and am wide-eyed and terrified most of the time. Late-stage capitalism is just weird and navigating it requires far more discipline than I have in these Unprecedented Times™.)
Made in Japan from a lightweight 100% nylon fabric and done in a classic dark navy colorway, the Wallet Pants feature an adjustable elastic waistband, darting at the waist, slant pockets at the front with zipper compartments inside, zipped back pockets, and a regular, slightly tapered fit. Meanwhile, the Device Jacket is a three/five-button joint with peak lapels, a slanted welt pocket at the chest, flapped welt pockets at the waist, an unvented back hem, and two large interior zip closure units. And because ledes are sometimes buried in these parts — ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ — both pieces in this set are designed to pack down into affixed interior zipper pouches.
“Dressing for the job you want” or whatever, is tired. “Willing a post-pandemic world into existence by buying clothes uniquely suited to that landscape” is the new wave.
