Just seen that a suit designed to carry an iPad is being sold. It has a pocket sewn inside big enough for said iPad. I wonder if it will double as a topit?

I've never seen the suit, but that sounds like a great idea. Of course you would still need some modifications by a taylor.

How many movies have I seen where a cop could spot a concealed weapon from across the room? LOL

It could work with some modifications. Personally, if I have to modify it, I'd rather start from scratch. Cool find though. I hadn't seen that!

There are photos of at least one style at http://www.cultofmac.com/gentlemen-behol......it/45758

Also, Stephen Colbert claims he invented the idea: http://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2010/06/04/r......ad-suit/

SCOTTEVEST makes a line of jackets and vests with iPad pockets ...
http://www.scottevest.com/v3_store/New_Travel_Vest.shtml
or, for video showing iPad pocket,
http://www.scottevest.com/company/popups......ng.shtml

While not designed for magicians, the vest has about 22 pockets.

Old thread but if anyone's interested, yes Scottevest iPad pockets work very well as topits, long as you have a safety pin handy to pin the lining to your pants

luckily, each product ships with a perfect, tiny safety pin used to keep the product tag in place

Revisiting/reviving this thread to clarify:

I've owned the ScotteVest sport coat for a while now

https://www.scottevest.com/v3_store/T5-SportCoat.shtml

It's not just a coat with a built-in, ready-to-go topit; It also has 19 pockets, including internal pockets with separators in the outside flaps

I don't do table-hopping or walkaround magic any longer, but if I'd had this jacket (and pants, I also wear their pants ... shirts too), I could easily carry two hours of material on me. The separators make the jacket's indexing capabilities obvious as well.

Heck, you could do a decent show just wearing one of their camp shirts (7 pockets, including two nested internally)

Avocat,

Have you actually been successful using the ready-to-go topit? Plus some other threads seem to say the multiple pockets on vests and stuff are not easy enough accessing for magic use while strolling. I don't carry a ton of stuff, but I would like to spread out stuff enough that pockets I have need separation or partitions. Plus the Topit without hiring a tailor would be super!

Thanks,
Steph
