How Max Perez is Changing Businesswear with xSuit

In today's more relaxed society, many fashion enthusiasts have wondered about the future of a menswear classic, the suit. With many industries such as big tech already operating with jeans and sneakers dress codes, and more traditional industries like banking now relaxing their professional attire requirements, the need for men to have a wardrobe of suits has come into question. However, designer Max Perez aims to keep suiting relevant with his innovative xSuit line, which mixes classic styles with modern technology for the 21st-century man.

What inspired you to start xSuit?

During my time working for M1NT, a prestigious nightclub and restaurant in Shanghai, I frequently wore suits and began to notice the countless limitations of classic suiting. These limitations led me back to my true passion and fashion roots. I created the xSuit as a solution for the modern man; a suit that withstands liquid, stains, smells and wrinkles while still featuring luxury design details.

How would you describe your approach to designing suits and businesswear?

My initial approach began with identifying all of the things I felt were wrong with classic suiting – limited movement, how badly they tend to wrinkle and how quickly they can stain and develop an odor. I melded all of these problems into one solution by creating a garment that could withstand stains, smells, wrinkles and that is entirely constructed from a stretch material to allow for unparalleled freedom of movement. I have also been inspired by suiting designs from several upscale brands in order to create a style of suit I have always wanted to own but could either never find or afford.
