Meet The “Armani of Armor” Behind America’s Growing Bulletproof Clothing Industry

In the early 1990s, Colombia was locked in a brutal drug war, led by Pablo Escobar, that saw homicide rates in Medellin surge over 8x in a matter of just a few years…

…and it was that surging violence that first prompted Miguel Caballero to start his line of bulletproof clothing some 25 years ago.
Now, as Racked points out today, with violent crime in Colombia back to levels not seen since at least the 70s, Caballero is looking to bring his bulletproof fashions to the United States where he’s hoping that growing fears of gun violence, combined with an eager American consumer that is always willing to part with his/her hard-earned cash in pursuit of the next fad, will be a boon for his business.
