    Garrison Bespoke Bulletproof Suit

    A "live ammo field-testing event tomorrow" (today Nov. 7th) "will demonstrate the suit's capabilities and offer a first look at Garrison Bespoke's new collection, Town & Country, inspired by the great outdoors". "The Garrison Bespoke bulletproof suit is made with carbon nanotubes created using nanotechnology and originally developed to protect the US 19th Special Forces in Iraq. The patented material is thinner, more flexible and fifty per cent lighter than Kevlar"

    It's a compensatory mechanism. To keep in line with policies here, I'm not going to say exactly what it helps compensate for.

    I hate the term "Bullet proof", makes people think that it will stop all bullets or that it will stop them in all cases. The best you can hope for is bullet resistant.

    Being able to wear body armor, essentially, without looking like it. The ultimate concealment armor, allowing a person to run under the radar without alerting everyone within 50yds of one's "protected" status. Possibly even armored all over the place, not just on traditional "paneled" zones (chest, back, sides). I'd bet that appeals to a great many people.

    I'd say the material is quite useful. Making a suit out of it? Not so much.

    EDIT: I mean seriously. How about a base layer instead? Then you can wear whatever you want over it.

    Sure hope it comes with a tie, or at least a double breasted option. That looks like it covers everything *except* COM. I'm sure that'll work wonderfully.

    I hope the tie is bullet proof, too...I'm just saying'...

    Perhaps the shirt is made of the same material?

    Based on the description ('its armored three-piece outfits'), I would guess they didn't forget COM. Wouldn't make much sense for them to have done that.

    I would hate to spend all of that money on a nice Nano Suit and then get shot in the head. I would get blood all over my nice new suit.

    I see. I was looking at the picture, which is definitely not a three-piece. But then again it's probaby just a stock photo and doesn't show the actual suit.

    I'm sure it'll come with a pinstripe headwrap. No exec is complete without it, this Spring.
