USPS Losing Money On Mail Service, Will Try It’s Hand At Fashion

Yes, the headline is correct: the United States Postal Service is launching a clothing line.

Branded “Rain Heat & Snow”, the Postal Service will start with a men’s line and then add women’s clothing in the future.
“This agreement will put the Postal Service on the cutting edge of functional fashion,” said Postal Service Corporate Licensing Manager Steven Mills. “The main focus will be to produce Rain Heat & Snow apparel and accessories using technology to create ‘smart apparel’ — also known as wearable electronics.”

It is not known if the “Rain Heat & Snow” line will be available in stores or on that thing that is helping to kill the USPS called the Internet or if they will use FedEx or UPS for delivery.
If you need proof that I'm not making this up, here's the press release.
