You CanNow Buy a $20KBulletproof Suit

A Canadian tailor is releasing what will hopefully
be the least practical outfit in your closet: a
$20,000, bulletproof, three-piece suit. In
tweed and pinstripe!
Employees at upscale Garrison Bespoke were
encouraged to try to stab co-owner Michael
Nguyen with a hunting knife to prove the suit's
durability to the press. The company website
assures potential buyers that, "no matter the
conditions — rain, shine, or even snow" (or, you
know, a hailstorm of bullets) " — our clients are
readily clothed in the best garments tailored
precisely for their lifestyle."
And Garrison Bespoke's clientele apparently has a
lifestyle more akin to James Bond (or James Bond
villains) than your average Wall Street Indochino
buyer. In fact, spokesman David Tran told AFP
that the company decided to make the suit after
a client was shot (but survived) on the job
The suit is lined with carbon nanotube fabric and
was designed by a company that makes armor
for the U.S. Army Special Forces.
This isn't the first time the uber-rich have
dressed to not get killed. Harrod's began selling
designer Miguel Caballero's $7,500 bulletproof
polo shirt — $9,800 to sustain automatic weapon
fire — since 2008. There are also wearable
bulletproof clothing lines for children.
