Formal Attire

I’m thinking the only person that could afford this suit is Tony Stark, and likely he could make good use of it if caught without his armor. It’s made by a company called SuitArt based out of Switzerland and keeps you safe with Diamond Armor that involves actual diamonds.

Furthermore, the lapels and buttons contain 880 tiny black diamonds to give you a little sparkle as you go about your day. It’s also waterproof and air-conditioned, because if you’re springing for a bulletproof, diamond encrusted suit, it’s simply ridiculous not to have it air conditioned. Each suit is custom fitted to the purchaser and includes a matching 24-carat gold silk tie.

We all know bow ties are cool, but when they’ve got Doctor Who designs they’re even cooler. Each of these bow ties features elements from the world of Doctor Who like the seal of Rassilon, the TARDIS and even Gallifreyan symbols.

Shailey and John DeBroeck’s wedding looks like it incorporated elements from several fandoms. The part that amazes me is that it all looks subtle and classy instead of over the top! You can spot touches including Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Batman, and other superheroes from both DC and Marvel. And, at least one of their rings was made from dinosaur bone (probably similar to these). I really enjoy the way they worked their various fandoms into their big day, and I think you will, too.

triforce silk tie 1

Add another heart on the life bar of your day by wearing the Triforce. This beautifully printed silk tie from Level Up Studios is geeky but still subtle enough to blend into a corporate setting. It would look great with gray or even pale yellow button-ups. Wearing this tie would make any suit a power suit.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and these cufflinks would make the perfect gift for the man in your life. They’re officially licensed Star Wars products made with rhodium-plated base metal and enamel. One has Princess Leia with the words “I Love You.” and the other features Han with “I Know.” Aw, ain’t love grand?

geek wedding 1

Logan Fernandes gave his wife Brooke a creative present for their 10th wedding annivesary: her dream wedding. Their initial wedding was small, and Logan knew she wanted to have something bigger and more in tune with the nerdy things they love. He got ideas on what his wife would like from her best friend. As he collected suggestions, he worked them into the big day and managed to keep it a surprise until his wife showed up at the event.

They had comic book boutonnieres, Star Wars rings, their son Kal-El as ring bearer in a Superman cape (yes, that’s his real name. Their daughter’s name is Harley Quinn), and an awesome wedding cake representing multiple fandoms. D’awww! This has to be one of the best surprises ever. Hmm, I wonder if I can hire Logan to plan my wedding.

See more photos from the big day (including their epic cake) after the break.

This incredible gown was spotted on Taiwanese singer Mei who wore it to a New Japan Philharmonic performance by Joe Hisaishi. It’s just stunning with a the dragon’s bones going all the way down her back right to the end of the train.

This is the perfect suit for the guy who’s worried about being shot to death on the way to work. Garrison Bespoke made it with carbon nanotubes that are initially soft, but harden on impact to protect you. Apparently, it has been tested to stop .22 and .40 caliber bullets.

This past year, Garrison Bespoke worked alongside suppliers for the US 19th Special Forces in developing the custom bulletproof suit. Using nanotechnology, it’s comprised of the same carbon nanotubes designed for the US troops’ uniforms in Iraq. Yet, the patented suit material is a lot thinner and flexible; fifty percent lighter than Kevlar (the material commonly used in bullet-proof gear). The entire suit acts like a shield, with nanotubes in the fabric hardening to block force from penetrating through.

That kind of protection isn’t cheap, but there’s still a waiting list for the $20,000 suit.
