Classy or Not Classy: A $450 Polyester Burberry Blazer That Folds Into Its Own Pouch

Here's something potentially useful but probably useless: a polyester blazer, made by Burberry, that can be folded into a convenient little pouch that zips itself up. It's great for travel! Burberry promises that the polyester suit won't crease from the folding and would still look great.

Maybe Burberry is right! The cut of the suit looks tailored with its slim lapels and single vent but I don't know if I can get over the plastic sheen of polyester that turns an otherwise great looking suit into a trash bag rain coat better suited for homeless people. This is an expensive gimmick. And can you imagine all the crackling noise you'd make while your arms moved? By wearing this suit, you're letting it literally announce your shoddy fashion sense. It's a bad idea.

But man, the suit in a folding pouch feature is pretty freaking sweet. Can you imagine all your other friends traveling with their poofy garment bags trying to clear airport security while you're just wistfully carrying a pouch no bigger than your phone? You'll have more hands to have fun. And it's always about having fun. $450 [MR PORTER via Uncrate]
