Haruyama Trading Co. of Okayama,  Japan has developed a suit for men which promises to  guard the wearer against swine flu. It goes on sale today, and will cost about $580 and comes in navy, charcoal gray, medium gray and gray pinstripe,. The secret to the suit’s swine flu protection? A titanium dioxide coating (which is a chemical commonly found in toothpaste and cosmetics which breaks down and kills viruses). However, the lasting power of this garment is more fast fashion than haute couture: the anti-swine-flu suit can only be washed a handful of times  before the titanium dioxide comes off, leaving the wearer with just a regular garment.
