High street stores selling lookalike stab-proof vests

Knife crime offences are at a record high but Sky News has found major retailers are cashing in on the epidemic. Sleeveless jackets which resemble stab-proof vests are being sold in stores across the UK and online, with clothing brands including Topman, boohooMAN and Urban Outfitters selling what they often brand as "tactical vests".

At first glance they look like a stab-proof vest, but offer no protection. When 37-year-old Dean Dawe's teenage step-son Darren was held up at knife-point twice in 2017, he decided as a parent to take matters into his own hands.

While Darren, 17, turned to making music to cope with the anxiety he developed from the attack, Mr Dawe began creating slash-proof clothing for adults and children. The items are lined with Kevlar, a material that can offer protection against knives.

When asked about the lookalike vests on the high street, Mr Dawe told Sky News that he understands fashion houses need to appeal to the masses, but is worried that wearing these vests could attract unwanted attention.

Nothing like creating a false sense of security, as well as encouraging carrying a knife -

Why let so many unlawful people into the West and then don't know how to protect ourselves?

Never thought during my youth anyone would ever need these stab-proof vests.

astonished RISE IN VIOLENT CRIME

It comes as the number of violent deaths on the streets of London this year has surpassed the 2018 figure after the 133rd person of 2019 was killed in the capital.

This year is the bloodiest since 2008 when 154 homicides – which includes murder and manslaughter – were recorded in London. Meanwhile, knife crime has hit a record high after more than 44,000 offences were recorded in the last year.

TERRIFIED Brits are wearing stab proof vests and flocking to self-defence classes in a desperate attempt to stay safe on Lawless London’s streets.

The capital’s violent crime has seen Brits urgently learning how to defend themselves as knife crime rates hit record highs, while yet another terror attack claimed the lives of two people just last month.
