And, only a limited number of the prototype suits have been made with proceeds from the sale of one of the suits, via an online auction, going to a children’s charity. The others are being sold at M.J. Bale’s Westfield Sydney store.
The contactless payment chip in the prototype suits features Visa payWave technology and is tied to a prepaid account issued exclusively by Heritage Bank, with the wearer able to check the balance and top up their suit on-the-go.
According to M.J. Bale CEO Matt Jenson, the protype suit is safe to dry clean and the chip has the same multiple security layers as a traditional contactless card, and if lost it can be suspended or cancelled straight away via your online Heritage Prepaid account.
“The world’s most powerful men don’t carry a wallet. This suit allows you to join their ranks. M.J. Bale has always been a brand for stylish gentlemen, the prototype means the wearer doesn’t need to ruin the cut of their trousers or jacket with a bulky wallet. It allows individuals to be ahead of the technology game and look top notch.”
The prototype suit is made from 100% Superfine Australian Merino Wool and Jensen says it has a “stylish cut overseen by master Japanese tailor, Kenichi Kaneko.”
“The elegant design means it is wearable technology…that a gentleman would actually wear.”
If you want to be one of the first to wear one of these futuristic suits, you can place a bid in the online auction at the Heritage Bank website – click here. All proceeds will go to the 4 ASD Kids charity which supports children with autism spectrum disorders.
