Links of interest this week.

Kingsman suits made reality? Garrison Bespoke makes a bulletproof suit starting at $25,000. The technology behind it is quite fascinating. The combination of kevlar being woven into the fabric itself and the internal construction can stop a .45 ACP round. Impressive, though I feel as if only a few people in certain positions would ever need it.

Meanwhile, Matt has made a very useful guide to pairing jackets and trousers on The Suits of James Bond. He includes a glossary of pretty much every trouser fabric you could think of including what jacket fabrics they pair best with. The current preference for suits over odd jackets right now may have something to do with the simplicity of not worrying about how the jacket and trouser look together.
