Legendary tailor Mohan “Mike” Ramchandani, known for keeping superstar athletes like Walt Frazier and Bernie Williams in their $12,000 custom suits, is on to a new 21st Century endeavor: the iPad suit. The custom tailored ensemble with a pocket big enough to fit an iPad is designed in collaboration with the unstoppable Stephen Colbert, who apparently tested out a similar suit from another designer earlier year. Of course, Mohan will most likely put his own spin on the look and we can't wait for Colbert to rock his new suit on the Colbert Report. At $600, it's more expensive than, say, the $230 Gucci iPad case, but look at it this way, you can actually wear the suit. [NYP; Previously]
