No more carrying around those pesky credit cards that take up space in your wallet, the latest wearable technology has M.J. Bale suits donning a contactless payment chip and antenna fused into the sleeve.
The technology is a large collaboration between WhybinTBWA Sydney, Eleven PR, tailor M.J. Bale, Heritage Bank and Visa.
Men can now pay “invisibly” with their sleeve wherever a Visa PayWave is accepted.
“Have you ever seen Bono, Obama or Bond pay for anything with a wallet? No. There’s a reason for that,” Dave Bowman, executive creative director WhybinTBWA Group Sydney, said.
“The most powerful men in the world don’t need to carry a wallet. And now, thanks to Heritage Bank and Visa nor does anyone with an M.J.Bale power suit.”
