Products like this are certainly nothing new, but it’s nice to be reminded now and then that it is possible to don a little protection while avoiding the look-at-me-I’m-a-high-value-target look altogether. Miguel Caballero Bulletproof Men’s Polo Shirt features a cotton exterior for an attempt at a casual look, while the innermost layer is microfiber. It tries to keep you warm in the cold and wick the sweat away in the heat. The middle layer is the company’s proprietary bullet proof section, and comes in three flavors:
OPTION IIA: 9mm / 40 Smith and Wesson FMJ
OPTION II: 9mm / .357 Magnum / 38 Super / Mini Uzi submachine gun
OPTION IIIA: Uzi machine gun / MP5,MP9 submachine gun / 44 Magnum SJHP / Stab-proof
Some clients include “action hero Steven Seagal, King Abdullah of Jordan, President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, President Alvaro Uribe of Colombia, Prince Felipe of Spain.” A small degree of peace of mind comes at a hefty price, of course. It’s between $3,500 and $4,500.
