Expandable suit jacket

Ever gain weight and discover your clothes don't fit anymore? Einstein apparently did, because he invented a suit jacket that expands for fuller figures. The jacket features two sets of buttons, one for the customer on a diet and one for pizza and delicious donut days.

Plus, it has some odd side openings that work as armholes, quite the fashion statement. It's an unexpected invention coming from a man who almost seemed to put effort into avoiding fashion. As Einstein put it:

"Once you can accept the universe as matter expanding into nothing that is something, wearing stripes with plaid comes easy."
