Canadian Bespoke tailor Garrison has revealed a bullet proof business suit selling for $20,000. This suit could be straight out of Q's lab custom made for James Bond.

You live a life as dangerous as that of James Bond? Than you should consider getting a bullet proof suit from Garrison. The Canadian tailor worked with suppliers for the US 19th Special Forces in developing the custom bulletproof suit.

Using nanotechnology, the suit is comprised of the same carbon nanotubes designed for the US troops' uniforms in Iraq. The patented suit material is a lot thinner and more flexible though. It is 50% lighter than Kevlar. The entire suit acts like a shield, with nanotubes in the fabric hardening to block force from penetrating through. 

The suite is selling for about $20,000. This is expensive, but I think price is no problem for the target customer: Likes to wear a suit and fears for his life, must be a rich man.

There is a news video report about this James Bond suit that can be found on the Garrison site. It shows some real shooting of the suit and how it holds up. It is expensive, but it seems to work.
