Z-mail

zipper wear opens up future fabric fashion

Take each half of a zipper with narrow cloth bands and add a row of teeth opposite the existing teeth. Lay hundreds of these zippers parallel to each other, add sliding tabs, zip them up and pronto-presto, z-mail is born!

Z-mail clothing is not just eye-catching, it’s practical, too. Is your child or girth growing or your grandmother or girth contracting? Add/subtract a zipper. Wary of road rash? Wear a z-mail biker overall with metal teeth and magnetic badges. Is your phone ringing? Zip up zipper #43. Need to nurse Nelly on the right? Zip down zipper #11.

       I had to read this several times to finally understand.
One thing you didn't mention is that you could mix and match colors, go from shorts to long pants (short sleeve to long), collar / no collar, etc. with just a zip.
I bet this could easily be marketed. You would need special connection pieces for certain parts of the clothing such as shoulders.
The link didn't work for me, but I would think this should be original.
