Jos. A. Bank launches performance fabric suiting line

Tailored Brands, Inc.'s Jos. A. Bank has launched a new line of performance fabric suiting under the label TravelTech.

TravelTech - Jos. A. Bank

The new line of suiting includes suit pieces, dress shirts and sportswear. It is designed for travel with stretch fabrics, moisture wicking temperature control, and zippered utility pockets. The line is available in slim and regular fit.

The touchstone fabric used in the new line is called 37.5 technology. The patented fabric is temperature controlling and allows for moisture wicking and odor control. It works in a similar manner to Nike's Dri-fit technology which is woven into the fabric and is not a surface treatment that washes off.

Like Dri-fit, Jos. A. Bank's 37.5 technology draws moisture off the wearer's skin so sweat does not sit on the body. It functionally keeps the wearer cool when he is sweating and warm when he needs to stay warm, essentially creating a microclimate for the wearer to maximize comfort.

Dr. Gregory Haggquist, Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Cocona Inc. developed the new 37.5 technology fabric. He said that Jos. A. Bank has "created a more comfortable technologically advanced suit" that will help the wearer feel great throughout the day.

The technology works from yarn to fabric, through mesh layers of construction. TravelTech is designed to be worn every day and the styles are meant to be versatile and durable while also stylish.

Dress shirts in the collection retail for $90, sportswear starts at $100 and suit-separate jackets and sport coats begin at $500 each. The collection can be styled for a complete performance suiting look. It is available exclusively through Jos. A. Bank stores and on the company's e-commerce site.
