In that case he would've said ChameleonSuit or some such. He specifically said SwissArmySuit - a swiss army knife has multiple components all tucked in neatly, and each can come out one at a time (or more) when needed.

Yeah, you are right, it probably has bottle openers under the pocket flaps and a couple of scissors and blades in the cuffs.

A reversible sportcoat already exists courtesy of Cantarelli, so it could be that....

Maybe just a little.
I just meant I wouldn't take swissArmysuit too literally, but meh, who knows. I only hope it is something quite interesting after all this speculation.

I think it is reverses look at the pockets on pic 1. There appears to be the faint out line of a pocket. Look at Vox's right pocket, slightly to the left of that you can see a faint outline. I think it has patch pockets on the inside.

I'm seeing the outline as well.

Or I could just be seeing what I want to see.

Or the suit is made of shamwow's

It's also a 2 button. Look at the funky roll.

I saw that too, but wasn't sure if was more than a shadow. Patch pockets on the other side?

If you look at the other full length you can see the same thing.

Maybe it's 2B on the reverse side, hence the high lapel roll.
