Because, toothpick gangsta chic.  

Neoprene has quickly become a go-to fabrication for many designers adopting the sport luxe look. Despite its prevalence, neoprene is still only coveted in the high fashion industry and is unlikely to cross over into high-street menswear due to its subtle shine and plush texture.

What was once a sport fabrication used in scuba gear is now often used in sweatshirts, jackets and shorts. This techno fabric often gives wearers an exaggerated proportion due to its ability to retain a structural shape. Because of the unrealistic silhouette it creates, care has to be taken when styling.

When the time comes for you to go from pedestrian to high-fashion neoprene, try

1) adding statement sunglasses (so the neoprene stands out further)
2) wearing shorts (to complete the sporty look)
3) carrying a leather bag (so the entire look is focused on fabrication as a theme)
