Now YOU Can Look Like a Mail Carrier!!!!

No really!!!!

Failing government entity United States Postal Service has just released a statement saying it has signed a licensing deal with Cleveland-based apparel company Wahconah Group, Inc. to produce a line of clothing aptly titled “Rain Heat & Snow” to be launched in 2014. This is fresh off the heels of their other most recent statement stating that they will no longer be delivering mail on Saturdays. The line will include "wearable electronics", like a control built into a sleeve that will control your iPod, as well as all-weather, all-season clothing ranging from headgear, footwear, jackets, coats and shirts. Right now the line is just for men, but they hope to eventually include a line for women. What do we think about this? Is it just a ploy for the USPS to make money, or do they really have a good concept going here? After all, USPS uniforms do have to stand up to the elements. I am really not so sure if people will want USPS logos all over themselves though, we'll just have to wait and see how this turns out.

When I Google Image searched Post Office Uniform this picture came up from Urban Weeds. Maybe there is something to this after all.
