Bulletproof Pocket Square: an Essential Accessory
December 24th, 2009
The Damned is made of “military grade ballistic protective aramid fiber”, made “to protect the hearts of men.” Damn, even the write-up is sexy.
Sruli Recht has this to say to nincompoops who intend to test the pocket square’s bullet-stopping prowess: “If a gun is aimed at you, fired, and the slug hits you, you will be hurt despite the properties of the square; The impact of the projectile itself is likely to fracture your bones bones and bruise you. According to the specifications of the textile, a ballistic projectile such as a bullet will not pass through seven layers of this material. We take NO responsibility for those who feel compelled to test the endurance or resistance of the textile in any way.” So just fold it in such a way that there’s seven layers above your chest and you’re good to go. Actually no you’re not; don’t ever believe a word I say.
You can order The Damned at Sruli Recht’s online store for €95 (appx. $136 USD).
