So what are the fashion-conscious urban survival folks wearing right now? Apparently, the current rage is kevlar-lined clothing. Kevlar is the of material found in bullet-proof (flak) jackets worn by law enforcement officials and the military.
Paranoid parents in the UK are buying kevlar-lined, tab-proof hoodies for their school-going children. Whether the kevlar clothing will actually stop knife stabs is still undetermined. With enough force, a knife can puncture thin kevlar.
