Bulletproof* Gentleman's Pocket Square
From the website:
The Damned is a Bulletproof* Gentleman's Pocket Square measuring 27 cm x 27 cm (10.6" x 10.6"), made from lemon-colored military grade ballistic strength aramid (Kevlar) fiber — to protect the hearts of men**.
This "pocket protector" for the Modern Age is bound in French cotton and in light of its chamfered corners, we developed a unique new fold.
*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, crack or break your bones and bruise you.
According to the specifications of the textile, a ballistic projectile such as a bullet will not pass through the 32 layers of this material.
We take NO responsibility for tests of the endurance or resistance of the textile in any way.
Designed by Sruli Recht.

Doesn't make much sense. A decent calibre bullet might not penetrate the cloth, but will probably have enough kinetic energy, especially at close range, to "wrap" itself in the cloth and carry it, along with the bullet, straight through the body. You can't tell me that a 45 or a 44 magnum won't just take the whole shebang in and out, but at least it will wipe up afterwards.

Isn't the heart closer to the middle of the chest? (Thanks for coming back, Joe!)
