 bulletproof jackets

The New York Times is reporting that, due to the high violent crime rate, a shop in Mexico City is specializing in bulletproof armor disguised as ordinary clothing:

There are bulletproof leather jackets and bulletproof polo shirts. Armored guayabera shirts hang next to protective windbreakers, parkas and even white ruffled tuxedo shirts. Every member of the sales staff has had to take a turn being shot while wearing one of the products, which range from a few hundred dollars to as much as $7,000, so they can attest to the efficacy of the secret fabric.

Izzy wonders if the store sells Kevlar socks—for when he shoots himself in the foot.


  1. Who knew this material could look so good? Excellent choice of more muted earth tones to control a guaranteed sheen from the material. I could go for a slightly darker orange, but it still works. These would look terrible in a red or white, (anything high saturation or high value, really), but here they look distinguished.

  2. Nice jackets with exciting colours.
