A US man has designed a business suit onesie.
Jesse Herzog has posted his design for The Suitsy on retail clothing company and crowdfunding site Betabrand.
The married 33-year-old, who works for a real estate investment company based in San Francisco, California, claims the suit is as comfortable as wearing your pyjamas.
"Imagine looking professional but feeling like you are in pajamas. Consider wearing a suit and a onesie at the same time. Welcome to the Suitsy," he says.
The shirt is connected to the jacket and the trousers at the waist.
False shirt cuffs give the impression the wearer is wearing a dress shirt. The zip to close up the front of the suit is disguised behind the shirt’s fake buttons.
The Suitsy currently has more than 450 votes on Betabrand with 27 days left to go.
