Steven Seagal owns a bulletproof kimono. There’s a company in Colombia that makes bulletproof clothing (there was an article about them in the New Yorker and also a video about them on Vice TV) and they make custom bulletproof clothing and one of the custom pieces they made was a bulletproof kimono. For Steven Seagal. From FilmDrunk:

Lest anyone question whether these garments will be the real deal, the company’s head of research and development threw out some high-profile customers to back up its safety claims.

“Three royal families in the Middle East are customers of ours. We made a bullet-proof kimono for the American actor Steven Seagal. Our experience is beyond question,” she explained.

I guess the point is that the world is really big and there’s lots of stuff going on in it all the time, you know? Some of it you can kind of count on, and some of it is very unexpected. Hahaha. It’s cool to think about. What a place! We’re all on this bulletproof Spaceship Earth together. #kimono

  1. It kind of bothers me how worried I am about the drape of that bulletproof kimono? Is it elegant???

  2. Was it for his time as Steven Seagal: Lawman? Did it mimic a police uniform and he wore the kinomo instead of the uniform because I don’t entirely believe that he was ever actually even a joke cop?

  3. I much prefer his cash kimono

  4. Of course he does. I mean, I would be more surprised if he didn’t.

  5. Bulletproof Kimono is my Wu Tang name.

  6. Sometimes I think he’s seriously going to try and take someone to the blood bank.

  7. I have a bullet-deflecting belt buckle and wristwatch. Possibly.

  8. But do they make bulletproof mumus?

  9. Bad Guy: “I’m going to shoot some bullets from my gun through your kimono made of thin, oriental fabrics.”
    Segal: “KimoNO YOU WON’T because it’s bulletproof.” *fistfight ensues*

  10. The only way I could take this guy less seriously would be if his last name was spelled ‘seagull’ because then I would think of birds pooping on people’s heads at the beach after eating their potato chips. Lol.
