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, its 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.
Surely not this Nelly?

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.
