Honestly, those outfits made elite athletes look like trust fund schmoes straight from the Ryder Cup circa 1930. Ascots? Striped rep ties? Blazers? With that dopey crest on the front? White golf caps? In 2008? ?
This is one stunningly beautiful piece of performance clothing; the fabric is a proprietary textile that actually reduces drag on the swimmers body by minimizing skin vibration and muscle oscillation. The seams are not sewn but bonded by a micro-laser and the suit also has an inner core stabilzer that supports the body in key areas to help maintin a proper body position in the water. Just watch the underwater footage of Michael Phelps – no drag, no turbulence, sleek as a shark. AND its great fashion.
