Colombian designer Miguel Caballero has developed a range of clothing tagged “high-security fashion”, which incorporates an ultra-lightweight bullet-proof fabric that is virtually indistinguishable from regular designer clothing.
A $12,000 anti-ballistic polo shirt has been developed as part of his “Black Collection” line and is available now from Harrod’s of London.
The polo-shirt is able to resist bullet-fire ranging from a 9mm pistol to an Uzi submachine gun, which is really impressive.
Even if the 600 rounds-per-minute Uzi only hits your Polo covered torso, you are going to end up so bruised you’ll look like one of those purple Ribena berries.
Caballero has attracted a list of very high profile clients with his high-tech kit including action hero Steven Seagal, President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela , King Abdullah of Jordan and President Alvaro Uribe of Columbia.
He has been dubbed the “Armani of armor” by his high-profile clients, which has got to say something about the quality of his work.
