Garrison specializes in luxury, so you shouldn't be surprised with the bulletproof suit starting price of $20,000. The bulletproof suit features carbon nanotubes in a layer under the fabric of the suit, which harden on impact to both stop bullets and knife blades. Of course, the technology was originally developed for US military applications.

Tailor, Michael Nguyen, says: "After receiving requests from high-profile clients who travel to dangerous places for work, we set out to develop a lightweight, fashion-forward bulletproof suit as a more discreet and stylish alternative to wearing a bulky vest underneath."

The material is reportedly more flexible than Kevlar, and it also weighs half that of Kevlar, too. What good is the suit, if you don't know it's bulletproof until you're shot, or stabbed? Well, Garrison hosted an event to show off the bulletproof suit, firing 9mm rounds into the suit that didn't penetrate the vest.
