Fashion Trend: Bulletproof Polos?

While you won’t find them at Macy’s or Saks, Colombian designer Miguel Caballero has created a polo shirt “resistant” to rounds from an Uzi machine gun.  Mr. Caballero claims to have outfitted dignitaries such as President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, and President Alvaro Uribe of Colombia.  I could see the demand from both of these guys.

The  shirt comes in multiple levels of protection:

Level 1 IIA: 9mm / 40 Smith and Wesson FMJ
Level 2 II: 9mm / .357 Magnum / 38 Super / Mini Uzi submachine gun
Level 3 IIIA: Uzi machine gun / MP5,MP9 submachine gun / 44 Magnum SJHP / Stab-proof

And of course the price $, 4000 USD.

  1. Given the damage and bruising that occurs from a traditional bulletproof vest, I have to think that the impact from this would be massive. ~ES

  2. I agree! The impact from this would be unbearable. And I could only imagine what the bruises would look like! I think I will pass on this item.
