Quiksilver designed a wetsuit that looks like an actual suit

For when you need to combine business and surfing

If you're a surfer, and you love the feel of salty sea mist on your skin, and the threatening billow of a forming wave, and the rush of gliding on water, but your preferred look is business formal, I've got good news for you. Quiksilver in Japan and the ad agency TBWA\HAKUHODO have designed the True Wetsuit, a wetsuit that looks like an actual suit.

The True Wetsuit is made from jersey neoprene and a stretchy "dryflight" fabric. It looks very much like a too-tight suit made of strange material. There's even a tie. And this isn't like one of those joke t-shirts with a tuxedo painted on — each wetsuit costs a cool $2,500.

The only problem is, if anyone sees you in the water, they might think you fell in.
