Storm Trooper

Technology and suits go together like … well, outside of “Iron Man,” they really don’t. 

Until now. Bringing some high-tech mojo to traditional suiting: Indochino’s Ultimate Tech Collection.

The tech here is Nanofabric, a hydrophobic blend that repels liquids — you can literally brush off the rain/sleet/snow — subdues odors, and keeps out the wrinkles.

Yet, it’s just as breathable as your regular suit.

Warming you up: a lightweight, detachable storm flap to cover your chest and neck and, thanks to the duck down filler, keep you toasty.

The suits also feature some quietly functional pieces, like a waterproof, touch sensitive “smart pocket” to hold your smartphone, and a hidden earphone hole tucked into your collar.

The Tech suits come in five styles, and pair well with Indochino’s new line of twill vests and uniquely striped dress shirts, like the “Tornado Maroon and Indigo Mini Pinstripe” and “Acid Rain Blue & Orange Checkered.”

Plus, like other Indochino wares, they’re hand tailored to your measurements, and feature 40-character monogramming of your choice.

A few old school touches worth keeping around.
