CHOOSE A WETSUIT THAT SUITS YOUR LIFESTYLE
Saint Jacques was born in the South of France in 2016 from the desire to offer a stylish alternative to a standardized world of wetsuits. Saint Jacques transposes classic fashion to neoprene with advanced-design thinking and no compromises on performances.
This idea came from a very simple statement. As the wetsuits technology evolved over the years, allowing surfers to venture into colder temperatures, the stylish good old days look of the first watermen was long gone. At Saint Jacques, we claim that the wetsuits on the market don’t have to be either black or bright colored ones.
Saint Jacques has, for the first time, successfully transposed urban street fashion (polo shirts, stripey jerseys, tank tops) using new technologies to pattern neoprene wetsuits. Our innovative collections are designed in France, using premium materials to achieve perfect and practical cuts as well as refined finishes.
More than a trend the Saint Jacques ‘ Wet à Porter ‘ motto is a philosophy and a way of life.
The time has come: Let’s add style to performance.
Since its launch we have been building on the success earned from professional riders endorsements as well as watersports enthusiasts and now, we bring some French touch to all ocean lovers regardless their sports or the water temperature! Now you can perform riding a wave, enjoy paddling across a lake, kitesurf your soul away or simply smile watching the sunset goes down wearing one of our premium “wet-a-porter” wetsuits.
