Canadian design studio Chromoly has made a name for designing household items in clever and slightly dangerous ways. Their most recent pieces of work consist of a hidden leather holster that contains a pair of scissors, a socket wrench and a glass sling.

The multi-weapon package by Chromoly does offer some protection, but this kind of weaponry may be as effective as bringing a knife to a gun fight.

Implications - It has become customary to include a degree of practicality in one's clothing -- a holster for a phone, a special pocket for stationary or a hidden seam to disguise your wallet. Clothing design firms with a talent for form over functionality would do well to embrace this growing consumer habit.
