Smart watches may be all the rage this season, but the next big trend in fashion is actually making the clothing you wear, smarter. Smart Clothing or e-textiles are fashions that either leverage technology in the design or have electronics imbedded into the fabrics to solve a problem or challenge. Here are two cool clothing companies that are tackling everyday fashion problems with their smart designs and revolutionizing the industry:

Slonemen Sloane Men launched in 2010 with the mission of creating the “perfect undershirt” for men. By using natural colors that match the skin-tone and a Siro Micro Modal and Spandex fabric blend; the company has created a breathable, lightweight, “invisible undershirt” for men that can be worn comfortably under dress shirts. Perfect for men of all luscious shades the shirts are available in three colors: Sand, Scotch and Smoke and retail for $34.
