October 14, 2008 For those occasions when a bullet-proof gentleman's square just won't do there is the bullet-proof polo shirt. The US$12,000 anti-ballistic shirt is made of ultra-lightweight, bullet-proof fabric by Columbian designer Miguel Caballero and features removable ballistic panels designed to offer protection from weaponry ranging from a 9mm pistol to an Uzi.
Caballero has been dubbed the "Armani of armor" and attracted high profile clients such as Prince Felipe of Spain, President Álvaro Uribe of Colombia and President Hugo Chávez of Venezuela. The shirt is part of Caballero's Black Label line, which includes a bullet-proof tuxedo shirt. Not sure what kind of parties or golf courses the buyers of these products are attending, but I'd be tempted to stay at home.
