Aoyama wool suit is as comfortable as a t-shirt



Japanese clothier Aoyama, the Japan Wool Textile Co., and two other companies have created a high-tech weave for a new kind of wool suit that breathes like a t-shirt. How did they manage that? The new process involves enlarging the spaces between the weave which allows six times as much air to pass through, as if through a conventional dress shirt. This should make the suit warm and cool at the same time. Advertisement, which involves flying jackets and a woman toting a thermometer, after the jump. [GT]
