Stay Alive with Miami-based bulletproof clothing.
For exhibit 3,862 that our world is accelerating toward apocalypse, witness the launch of Anxo, the Miami-based line of bulletproof clothing for civilians. Its slogan (and we can't make this shit up): "Our promise: You won't be a victim of fashion."At the same time Barack Obama had more than the Presidential 'beast' limo taking care of his safety yesterday.
According to some reports, he wore a suit made by a clothier specializing in bullet-resistant clothing during the inauguration ceremonies.
According to Caballero, many of his garments offer more than three levels of ballistic protection and they are about seven times more flexible than the Kevlar vests that are usually worn. Designers that use Kevlar tie together dense strands of the material (500 to 1,500 filaments per strand of yarn, according to Slate), which is then weaved into the clothing.
