'keisuke kanda' and 'ANREALAGE,' two clothing stores based in Japan, partnered with ASICS to design a business suit that goes against expectations and offers a more comfortable clothing alternative to office workers.

In order to promote the creation, the companies enlisted a celebrated Japanese singer and actor known as Takayuki Yamada to model the business suit. He pairs the design with a white collared shirt and a bright red tie to make its distinctive quality clear, which is also maintained by the business suit's structured lapels and pocket squares.

What makes it different from other business suits however is the branding that boldly goes down the sleeves and the modular material it is built from. With this, the business suit infuses elements of office-wear with athletic apparel. Those wishing to get one of the sports-ready business suits for themselves can purchase one from a pop-up shop that will be located located in Tokyo, Japan.
