What separates a suit from a tuxedo? Lapels, mainly. Miami entrepreneur Sebastian Garcia knows this, so he created The Lapel Project to convert suits to tuxes in DIY fashion, starting at just $30.
Garcia’s stick-on velvet strips impressed the Shark Tank swarm, prompting a $150,000 investment from Mark Cuban.
“All our lives, we’ve been sucked into buying tuxedos that just sit in our closets, collecting dust,” Garcia told INDULGE. “Now people can convert a suit into a tuxedo from their home.”
