Default Bullet proof Tailor

Pretty cool video on a tailor in Colombia who designs fashionable body armor. The journalist is pretty brave to take a shot like he did. I guess it is good marketing and Quality Assurance that he shoots all his employees but I don't think I would be willing to do that.

That is pretty cool. I am not surprised at all that someone out there got the idea to make fashionable bullet proof clothing.

I can totally see Cane rocking that Hawaiian print Tony Bahama looking one on South Beach.

Cool story. Thanks Yunus.

Outstanding video Yunus, and the time has come for fashionable BP fashion wear!

I just wish he was around when I was poking around Bogota back in the 80's.

Tony Bahama???

Is he the Bogota version of Tommy Bahama?

That looked like a .38 spl and the smoke and obvious light load must have been a Cerb, Prvi Partizan round!

Plus the handling of the spent round and brass showed no signs of heat. I think there was plenty of editing going on in Bogota!

The targeted area of that jacket looked vaguely familiar to that of the Safe Direction Ballistic Containment Systems' logo target.





Cool vid Yunus!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
