The 883 Police Voyd Jacket, for example, is a lightweight funnel jacket featuring a high-standing funnel neck, a front zip fastening, long sleeves and relaxed fit. These types of jackets are easily worn with jeans, fleece and trainers for a more casual look or paired over office wear when visiting the office during colder weather.
