MTM Wetsuiting Is Now a Thing

Swami's

It’s hard to imagine a situation where the buttoned-up lot on Savile Row and laid-back surfer types would overlap, but it seems they have...

According to our friends at UrbanDaddy, you can get yourself a made-to-measure wetsuit from the British surf gurus behind Swami’s (they’ve made some handsome boards in their day, including a collaboration with Paul Smith). Just in time to dapper up any Endless Summer–inspired weekends you’ve got planned, they’ve teamed up with a wetsuit maker on the Celtic Sea who’s doing to-order custom jobs for anyone in need of a perfectly snug neoprene suit. (Yes, you can refer to him as your wetsuit tailor.)

As you can imagine, the benefits of a MTM wetsuit are similar to its wool counterpart—the personalized comfort, the boost in confidence, the decreases in body fatigue—but this one also keeps you much drier than normal. And for all the stuff out there getting the “bespoke treatment” these days, this is something we can actually get behind.
