    innovative clothes (post again with revision)

    Would you please give me a hand with the bracketed part in the following passage?

    The first samples, furnished with round-the-clock internet access, have been revealed in fashion shown at tech conferences, with models wearing headset microphones and built-in keyboard sleeves. {For all the innovation that’s been shoveled into fashion, you’d think inventors would be able to come up with something truly useful-like sang-proof cashmere sweaters. Is that so much to ask?}

    {For all the innovation that’s been shoveled into fashion, you’d think inventors would be able to come up with something truly useful - like sang [?snag}-proof cashmere sweaters. Is that so much to ask?}

    It seems the writer does not think much of the extremes in catwalk fashion. He/she is saying that if the designers are so clever, why haven't they invented something that is really usable; for instance, cashmere sweaters that do not catch on things and break the threads.
