Bullet-Proof and Fashionable



These days, you no longer need a bulky black vest to be bullet-proof. You can now purchase fashionable, light-weight suits, raincoats, and jackets made from high-tech fabrics that are designed to protect wearers from bullets, knives, and needles. You can even buy bullet-proof t-shirts and underwear.

Perhaps the most famous "bullet-proof tailor" is Miguel Caballero, a Columbian fashion designer who has crafted suits for the presidents of several South American countries. He enjoys testing his wares, and claims to have shot all eighty of his employees at one time or another. (They're all still alive, apparently.)

Unfortunately, Mr. Caballero doesn't seem to make any women's clothing. Such a shame. Check out his manly styles here.

As for other "bullet-proof" fashion designers, I haven't heard of any. Maybe a career opportunity?

whoops, no, although she hasn't been mentioned. I was blanking there (stupid exams) but I *meant* Betty (Heck of a way to mess up, they're very different) since in The Book it said that she used the money from selling the Reverse Pied Piper to what's-his-name, the ratlike man, to start a company that made bulletproof vests for women. So what happened to that?
