The U.S. Postal Service is looking to fashion to help its troubled financial situation.
You may not be able to get a letter from the U.S. Postal Service on Saturdays, but you will be able to get fashionable new apparel.
The cash-strapped post office plans to release a "Rain Heat & Snow" clothing and accessory line.
CNN reported that the Postal Service is teaming up with Cleveland-based Wahconah Group, which will design the clothing and accessories.
The Rain Heat & Snow line should have something available for men by spring 2014, CNN said. A women's line also is being planned.
CNN said the fashion line will be sold in department and specialty stores.
According to CNN, the line will feature the latest technology, including sweat-wicking fabric, jackets that can sync with MP3 players and standards such as coats, head gear and footwear.

The Postal Service lost almost $16 billion in the past year and defaulted twice on required payments to the government.
It loses $25 million every day.
Some predict it could run out of money entirely in nine months, making measures such as the proposed clothing line a sort of last-ditch effort to save the agency.
The Postal Service also asked Congress for help. But the Republican-led House of Representatives advocated for post-office closures and never voted, before Congress expired in early January, on a postal bill that may have helped.
