What is the most important thing you think about when designing a suit?
M&J: The fit of a suit is everything. Color and novelty are important but the fit trumps everything. We wear our samples and test them over and over to make sure that the suit is comfortable and keeps its shape.

What is your favorite warm weather location for travel?
M: Tulum because of the juxtaposition of the ocean and pre-Columbian Mayan ruins, as well as the amazing fish tacos at every restaurant.
J: Costa Careyes for the picturesque coastline and marine wild life. Tulum and Costa Careyes are both perfect vacation stops to re-charge your batteries and to escape.

What are your beach bag essentials?
M&J: Fresh watermelon juice, Evian mineral water spray, Ray-Ban aviators, Havaianas flip flops, an iPod with a good playlist and a large bottle of Smartwater.
