It wasn’t just the incorrect location, this post had the hallmarks of a spammer from the beginning. I let it go for as long as I did to see where it would wind up, and ultimately I did not see the OP as a legitimate member.

I think those shirts would go over better on a Sons of Anarchy wannabe cruiser forum than they would here.
Well in the spirit of funky gear, here is a hoodie that actually protects. I met the owner of this custom leather shop at a motorcycle show. He insisted I try on one of these. I laughed and commented there is no way in hell this thing is going to help in a crash. I was awe struck as soon as I slipped it on. Looks like a everyday hoodie. The price is hard to beat and boy it has protection and quality throughout!! For a nominal fee he will make any custom gear you can think of.

It even has easy access dual pistol pockets for up to a medium firearm in each one. Did not have one to test but I imagine any good old Colt 10mm Delta Elite or 1911 would fit perfect in each one. Pretty much anything with a 5" or less barrel length looks like it would fit. The only thing I can see as a negative is it might sag some with the weight of the weapon.

Hmmmm….anti CUT, is not anti STAB. Kevlar duty vests help stop bullets....but, they're not much protection against sharp pointy objects. Weird, huh? Kinda like "slow" bullets penetrate further into water than "fast" bullets.

How true!! I guess a chest plate is in order for close quarters battle.
