TORONTO, Nov. 4, 2013 /CNW/ - Toronto-based luxury bespoke tailoring
house Garrison Bespoke will launch the first fashion-forward
bulletproof suit tomorrow with a live ammo field-testing event at the
Ajax Rod and Gun Club at 11:00 am EST in Ontario.
"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," said Michael Nguyen,
co-owner and bespoke tailor of Garrison Bespoke.
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, which is traditionally
used for bulletproof gear. The Garrison Bespoke bulletproof suit also
protects against stabbing - the carbon nanotubes harden on impact
preventing a knife from penetrating.
The cost of a Garrison Bespoke bulletproof suit starts at $20,000.
The live ammo field-testing event tomorrow will demonstrate the suit's
capabilities and offer a first look at Garrison Bespoke's new
collection, Town & Country, inspired by the great outdoors. Each piece
in the new collection can be made bulletproof by request.

out. A sharp pinstripe suit with crushed jade woven into the cloth for
good luck is one client's signature look. Secret suit pockets are the
