When one needs to slip out of view, it is always good to have help. The proper attire is key. This jacket–like sweater for men or women (we can all have different sides) is meant to be stylish and flexible in any circumstance. The large collar can be pulled above the head and buttoned, to make a hood, and the pockets are integrally designed to conceal, well, whatever you may need to conceal.
