New 4th Amendment Underwear Lets You Send Secret Messages To The TSA

Whether you’re not a fan of the new TSA scan/patdown procedures, or you just like the idea of secret messages on your underwear only Superman can read, it’s pretty safe to say that the new line of 4th Amendment Wear makes a statement.

They’ve got boxers, briefs, tees and even a bra and panties set for the ladies.

Oh and, I think their kids line is amazing. Just…amazing.

Cargo Collective created the clothing line and the explanation on their site explains it all pretty well:

The concept behind 4th Amendment Wear is simple: to get a few people to think a little more about their constitutional rights.

We found metallic type that could, in theory, show up on TSA scanners that would display the 4th amendment. The clothes are designed as a silent protest against the new reality of being searched to the point where we’re basically naked. We don’t intend for this to be anything more than a thought-provoking way to fuel the debate about safety vs. civil liberties. If we sell a few items, great. But the main intention is to open more dialogue. It’s more of a conceptual piece than anything else.

I have a feeling they’ll sell more than a few. #justsayin
