(Newser) – Well, this is unexpected: The struggling US Postal Service's next venture ... is a fashion line. Of (it gets odder) "wearable electronics." Inspired by the unofficial USPS motto—"Neither snow nor rain nor heat..."—the line of apparel and accessories will be called "Rain Heat & Snow," Fast Company reports. The brand will be a partnership with the Wahconah Group, and it looks to "put the Postal Service on the cutting edge of functional fashion," according to a statement. The main focus will be "smart apparel" or "wearable electronics," clothing that incorporates technology. Sorry, ladies: The Verge notes that the line will initially feature men's items only.
