A young man knifed himself to death in the mistaken believe that the jacket he was wearing was 'stab-proof'. 

Jordan Easton, 22, from Thornaby, Teesside, was sitting in the kitchen of a friend's house when he decided to test the lifesaving properties of his top on August 23 last year.

Teesside Coroner's Court heard Easton died of a single stab wound to the chest after being rushed to the University Hospital of North Tees in Stockton.
