Kite Wear

Clothes make the man soar.

A recently uncovered, 5000 year old hieroglyph has inspired the creation of kite clothes, seen floating over fashion runways from Reykjavik to Bangalore. The use of a jumpsuit and high tech fabrics have improved on the comfort and function of the ancient motif.

The horizontal strips between the legs and extending from the arms to the sides are essentially the same, though the modern design has been enhanced to give lift in the wind when both coming and going. The Egyptian kite hat has been grounded for a more attractive box kite hood to catch favorable head winds.

Taking a buoyant stroll in kite wear is an uplifting and relaxing experience, even allowing for the necessary bowlegged stride. On calm days, a running start will lead to lighter steps and temporary weight loss. One should note that the outfit is banned at track meets and scratching the head requires crouching first.

       At first I thought it was going to be a body suit kite thing but this is much better. +

       That guy in the picture looks like a Scot. Funny kilt, though.

       Hey, this wouldn't be too hard to mock up real quick in my shop. I bet I could prove it wouldn't work and look real stupid and/or dead trying.

       They must already be available. Most of the attractive women I get within 20 feet of are wearing 'em.
