A Switzerland-based men’s clothier has created a diamond-encrusted, bulletproof suit that would make any average Joe feel like James Bond, and it could be all yours for a mere $3.2 million.

The Diamond Armor suit, created by SuitArt, is encrusted with 880 black diamonds and even has built-in air conditioning, the Daily Mail reported.

“The Diamond Armor provides a solution as being the first suit incorporating the air condition suit system developed by EMPA,” the company website says. “The integrated technology, which can be activated at the push of a button, allows for highest comfort by cooling the wearer down through the humidification of water.”

Dubbed “the most expensive custom tailored suit in the world,” the high-tech suit not only repels water and stains, it’s bulletproof, “certified by NATO standards,” the company says.

“Level II’ protection classification means the suit can shield the wearer from bullets fired from handguns ranging from 9mm pistols to .357 Magnums, the Mail reported.
