This is one (anti)-killer suit.
Toronto tailor Garrison Bespoke has introduced a bulletproof three-piece suit. If shots fired from close distance don’t do you in, maybe the price tag will: it costs a staggering $20,000.
According to the company’s website:
Garrison Bespoke worked alongside suppliers for the US 19th Special Forces in developing the custom bulletproof suit. Using nanotechnology, it’s comprised of the same carbon nanotubes designed for the US troops’ uniforms in Iraq. Yet, the patented suit material is a lot thinner and flexible; fifty percent lighter than Kevlar (the material commonly used in bullet-proof gear). The entire suit acts like a shield, with nanotubes in the fabric hardening to block force from penetrating through.”
The suit is (no pun intended) tailored for clients who travel overseas for work in potentially risky fields, like oil, finance or George Zimmerman’s dog walker.
