Ever considered combining safety AND fashion? That’s exactly what the design team at Toronto based boutique Garrison Bespoke decided to do. Garrison Bespoke is known for their impeccable custom fits and now, they have a new idea to make something stylish that also keeps there customer safe!
The boutique explains that often times in the world of business, men need to travel to countries that are potentially dangerous or unsafe, particularly in industries such as the oil or diamond business. To respond to this need, Garrison Bespoke wanted to create something fashionable, comfortable and practical, but that will protect you in case you are shot at.
The Garrison Bespoke design team worked alongside the US 19th Special Forces to develop this custom suit. This suit looks just like a typical suit- no one would ever know the difference! The bulletproof suit uses nanotechnology and is made from the exact same carbon nanotubes that were used in the US troops uniforms in Iraq. However, Garrison Bespoke prides itself on the fact that the fabric, although bulletproof, has been slightly altered as to feel more flexible and lightweight for maximum comfort AND safety.
These suits have been tested at shooting ranges and will protect against a 9, 22, and 45 mm bullet. The suit won’t come cheap, and is priced at $20,000. But can you really put a price on safety?
