Quiksilver designs £1,300 wetsuits that look like actual suits

Good news for the surfer looking to balance their hobby with their busy working life (sort of)

Now you can head to the office straight from the waves thanks to Quiksilver’s latest invention, a wetsuit that looks like an actual suit and it can be yours for the not insignificant price tag of $2,500 (approx. £1,300).

Surfers can deck out the waves in a three-piece-suit.

The True Wetsuit was designed by Quiksilver in Japan and is made from jersey neoprene and a stretchy “dryfright” fabric. It looks like a complete tight suit with trousers, jacket, shirt and even a tie.

The sportswear brand offers the wetsuit in black, navy and there’s even a tuxedo version, all labelled Office Smart, Casual Friday, and Party Tuxedo respectively.

Quiksilver's wetsuits come in three different styles.

While the waters at this side of the pond might be too cold to ride a few waves at lunchtime, surfers in warmer lands could combine business and surfing successfully with this addition to their wardrobe. Sort of.

Whether anyone will actually wear the suit is yet to be seen, but we’ve got to admit that it will be one dapper surfer who dares.
