    I cannot remember the fine print in the law but I sort of remember that most of the uniform-related cases prosecuted involve the wearer trying to impersonate someone in authority.

    or use prohibited items in the commission of a crime. imagine robbers wearing bullet proof vests in the act of committing a robbery
    at a bank here.

    feryl, i believe prohibited items would include real bullet proof vests, not fakes.

    I was under the impression that he was purchasing a police vest/jacket, and not a real kevlar jacket, which is very uncomfortable and definitely not something you'd want to wear out on the streets. However, there's another form of bulletproof vest, which comes with pockets for you to slide metal plates into.

    There were not specific information provided by Astin, so I would like to think he's asking advice about a normal non-kevlar jacket. If it was padded with hollow fibre or polyester or styrofoam to simulate a real jacket - but doesn't fulfil the function of a bulletproof jacket - there's still no issue; it'll appear to be a winter jacket with "police" at the back.

    Like the ones Jackie Chan is wearing in his police movies. Those are cool. We do an MO for it and sew CS behind

    buying should be ok, just don't be seen by some thief or terroist who thought you are a true police, then you are going to get it. "gan sway"
