For anyone to wear it, you'd have to basically wear a suit of vantablack coated armor or risk tearing through your aluminum foil pants every time you took a step. Either way, it's going to be loud

A British company has produced a "strange, alien" material so black that it absorbs all but 0.035 per cent of visual light, setting a new world record. To stare at the "super black" coating made of carbon nanotubes – each 10,000 times thinner than a human hair – is an odd experience. It is so dark that the human eye cannot understand what it is seeing. Shapes and contours are lost, leaving nothing but an apparent abyss.
