If you were sporadically tracking the Suitsy's pre-order progress on Betabrand's website, you might have given up hope on the adult onesie. Just a few days ago, the campaign still needed almost 100 pledges to qualify for production. But miracles do happen. On Thursday, the final backers ponied up the necessary cash to tip the Suitsy from mere dream to pre-production reality. San Francisco real estate developer Jesse Herzog —the dude who designed the Suitsy— tells Racked, "I am proud and humbled that my wild dream will become an even wilder reality. Next time you see a man walking down the street that imbues class, sophistication, and ease, know he is wearing a Suitsy."
