The postal service is getting all fashionable on us. According to The Washington Post, the U.S. Postal Service has announced plans to launch a new clothing line of all-weather apparel and accessories, which plays off of the motto, “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stay these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”

The line, appropriately called “Rain Heat & Snow,” will feature men’s clothing and accessories, including jackets, headgear and footwear. A women’s line is said to be in the works as well. 

“This agreement will put the Postal Service on the cutting edge of functional fashion,” agency licensing manager Steven Mills said in a statement. “The main focus will be to produce Rain Heat & Snow apparel and accessories using technology to create ‘smart apparel’ — also known as wearable electronics.”
