Toronto store creates world's first suit you can dunk in

They once stitched a vintage Vince Carter rookie jersey into a suit lining for Drake; now, this Toronto tailor has moved on up to dressing the entire Raptors lineup. Garrison Bespoke have just unveiled the Raps' new team suits, which they've billed as the world's first track suit/formal suit hybrid.

It's no stretch (pun absolutely intended) for the Financial District tailors, who are locally known for creating a bulletproof suit, a sharp TFC team suit stretchy enough to play footie in, and other feats of stunt tailoring. (They also make off-the-court suits for plenty of pro athletes.)

Essentially, it's a straight-up dark suit with some sporty engineering: Antibacterial, moisture-wicking cloth with a four-way stretch, a hidden drawstring waist, and even zippers at the ankle. In their words, it's "flexible enough for DeRozan to dunk in but sharp enough to wear to the ESPYS."

Three points for creativity, but I'm of the opinion that ribbed cuffs should never, ever be on a suit. Want to order your own? Unfortunately, they only ordered enough of that odour-resistant fabric for the team, so you're on your own there.
