5 Weirdest Articles of Clothing

Wednesday, 29 Sep 2010 02:29 PM

Today, the list of articles of clothing developed by fiber and fabric manufacturing companies is amazing. These articles are the result of research carried out by companies on special fibers and fabrics to suit various purposes. This article lists types of clothing that rightfully fall under the category of weird or strange clothing.
  1. Clothes that change according to your mood: Imagine the jeans you are wearing suddenly change color, just because you experience a sudden rush of joy. Yes, this unusual clothing is based on the same concept as that of the light-sensitive eyeglass lenses that darken when exposed to sunlight. This type of weird clothing may also be used to allow a person to blend in with the environment, “like a chameleon effect,” says Gregory Sotzing, professor at the University of Connecticut in Storrs.
  2. Clothes with inbuilt mosquito and insect repellents: Here is an unusual item of clothing that protects you from the sting of mosquitoes and other harmful insects. This weird clothing from Buzz Off apparel provides the benefit of a super-effective insect-repellant bug spray or cream. This saves you from the constant reapplication of insect repellants and from the risks that such repellants can cause to your skin and the environment. Buzz Off offers these unusual jackets for men, women, and children.
  3. Clothes that dissolve: The nuclear power industry has been facing a huge problem in managing solid waste from radiology-protective clothing. This problem is solved by an unusual clothing item, developed using polyvinyl alcohol (PVA), which can be dissolved completely after use.  
  4. Clothes that provide UV protection: Bamboo, an eco-friendly material, is used to make a unique clothing material that resists harmful ultraviolet rays from the sun and acts as a sunscreen. Fabrics made from bamboo fibers also possess antibacterial properties. It is because of this property that this clothing material finds use at fabric retail outlets and in hospitals.
  5. Clothes that fight transmittable diseases: Today, one can not only get socks that will not smell, but will also resist common illnesses like flu and fever with the help of a unique clothing material. Based on  research on germ-free clothing, Jeff Williams of Halosource, the Seattle-based company says, “When bacteria, yeasts, or fungus collide with the chlorine in the fibers, they are bonded to the fiber and get killed. No chemicals are released by the fabric; so, it does not irritate the skin or harm the environment.” Researchers are now using this technique to fight bacteria and help cut down the number of illnesses from transmittable diseases.
