Full Metal Jacket

With plenty of Russian oligarchs and Arab princes settling in London in recent years, famed department store Harrods has debuted an array of bulletproof clothing for men, made by Colombian manufacturer Miguel Caballero. Should old rivalries resurface on the mean streets of Mayfair, wealthy honchos won’t have to rely on bulky and unfashionable lead vests to protect their vital organs from assassination attempts: The collection includes crisp white cotton tuxedo shirts lined with bulletproof fabric and natty leather jackets that double as body armor. Items range from $6,150 to $14,700—a small price to pay for dodging a mini Uzi in style.
