'Diamond Armor' is a men's suit that combines the ultimate in luxury with the latest in high-tech badassery.

Developed by Swiss company Suitart, the aptly named Diamond Armor suit is embedded with 1,680 black diamonds distributed among its fabric, lapels, stitching and jacket buttons.

The suit is also bulletproof -- not just by any old standards, but by the standards of the NATO military alliance. It can withstand bullets fired from handguns ranging from 9 mm pistols to .57 Magnums. A further high-tech feature of the suit is built-in air conditioning that works using a water humidification process. Its outer layer is also waterproof and dirt-resistant. It also boasts an elegant silk lining printed with a painting by Costa Rican artist Luciano Guizueta.

If that weren't enough to satisfy the most discerning of suit-wearers, the suit also comes with a tie woven out of 24-carat gold.

Unsurprisingly, Diamond Armor is slightly out of most people's price range, at an eye-watering $3.2 million. Suitart hasn't released any photos of the suit just yet.
