Suited, Booted and Bullet-Proofed
There is an article on the BBC website about a company in Holland that has opened up its first shop selling fashionable bullet-proof clothing. The brand of clothing is Colombian (where else?) and its range includes the classic vest, leather jackets, suits and even bullet-proof ties!!
I’m really struggling to see the point of a bullet-proof tie though! Unless you’re an incredibly thin chap I would have thought it unlikely that it offers too much in the way of protection.
Having said that, there are no pictures of these ties in the article so you just never know, that guy stood next to you at the bus stop may not just be into 1970s retro fashion! Maybe he couldn’t afford the whole suit and that huge kipper tie is the only thing standing between him and certain death at the hands of a rogue gunman!
And if he’s that concerned for his own safety it’s probably best to let him get on the bus and wait for the next one!
