James Bond will have nothing on the man who wears one of Garrison Bespoke's incredible bulletproof three-piece suits. Although based in Toronto, Canada, the upscale tailor would probably be more at home setting up shop in the fictional city of Gotham with this creation. Garrison Bespoke essentially offers piece of mind without sacrificing style.

Also available in a two-piece version, Garrison Bespoke's bulletproof suits are made with a layer of fine carbon nanotubes, which are 50% lighter than Kevlar and have 30 times the strength of steel. Able to stop a 9 mm bullet, the bulletproof suit was tested at a recent event. Employees were invited to shoot and stab Michael Nguyen, one of the owners of the company, "which is a serious test of both the product and employee morale," Neatorama notes.
