Bulletproof Fashion

The latest trend in Latin American presidential fashion? Miguel Caballero’s anti-bullet cloth. Caballero's line of high-security cloth is proving popular among Latin American leaders. In an interview to the British daily The Guardian, the Colombian designer reported a yearly increase in sales from US$3 million in 2004 to US$7 million in 2005.

Customers include Colombia´s President Alvaro Uribe and Venezuela’s President, Hugo Chávez-Frias, who just ordered 50 items ranging from cotton vests to raincoats for his cabinet members. Indeed, Chavez's trademark red guayabera has the Caballero label.
