Fashion Week is almost here and while there will be lots of looks for women, one custom suit shop in Manhattan is helping men dress to impress while also being tech savvy.

Mohan's Custom Tailors in Murray Hill is finding that more men are looking for stylish suit jackets that can also hold all their devices.

Many of their jackets are designed to fit smart-phones, tablets, wallets, and keys without weighing them down or causing bulk.

"People, they carry phones, two phones, like to carry their iPad, a lot more technology. People are always on their phones and iPads, it's part of their life," said Mohan's Custom Tailors Manager KJ Singh.

It's the little custom details, the extra pockets, the way the buttons are, the cut of it, how it forms to your body. I think it's important," said Former New York Jets Player Anthony Becht.

Singh says other suit trends for 2014 include thinner lapels, tapered pants, and monograms.

Fashion week officially opens on February 6.
