$4,000 Bulletproof Polo Shirt Protects You In Style!
Got a lot of enemies but feel that a Kevlar jacket is too bulky to be stylish? Not to worry, Colombian designer Miguel Caballero has created "the Armani of bulletproof clothing" -- a 4-pound, $4,000 bulletproof polo shirt.
Who would buy such a garment? Caballero includes in his client list includes heads of state, bodyguards, and other such high-profile customers. The shirt has antiballistic panels that protect its wearer from a number of weapons, though if you want to be shielded from an Uzi as opposed to a 9mm it will cost you extra. And how do we know the shirts really stop bullets? In an interview with Smart Money, a company spokesperson said that they test the shirts on their employees by shooting at them. Cushy job!
The shirts come in navy blue, white, and, if you're a neatness freak, stain-covering red.
