The Premium Air Cool Suit Keeps Men (And Women) Cool In The Summer Heat

Summers in Tokyo can be extremely hot and humid, especially for office workers having to wear suits. But major Japanese fashion store chain Aoki has a solution, the so-called Premium Air Cool Suit [JP, PDF]. Aoki cooperated with Shinshu University in the development of the fabric, which filters out infrared and ultraviolet rays.

As a result, your body doesn’t heat up as much as it would with a conventional suit. Aoki claims that wearers have a body temperature that’s up to 10C lower in comparison.

Aoki plans to sell the suit in three variations, priced between $630 and $820, starting next month. A special version for women will cost $345. Similar products, for example a shirt, shoes or underwear, are scheduled to follow soon.
