You can get answers to your questions through earphones, which is attached to the jacket. This will help you to keep an eye on the road without fiddling the phone. Coming with technology woven in the jacket, this super luxurious garment is washable. The jacket has small cufflink, which should be removed when you wash the jacket.
The jacket comes with a conductive fabric called “interactive denim” and a Bluetooth device that attaches to the sleeve.
