In response to a series of violent crimes against schoolchildren and store clerks, a Japanese uniform manufacturer named Nihon Uni has created a new shirt that provides some knife slash resistance. The shirt uses a polyethylene fiber that’s three times thicker than regular cotton, and works in a similar way to body armor. Despite its rugged appeal, you can still throw it in the washing machine. The line drops in June, with the short-sleeve version going for $190 and the long-sleeve going for $220.
