The British Home Office is the UK equivalent of our Department of Homeland Security. With the responsibilities of running everything from immigration, law and order, drugs policy, and domestic security services. These jackets were part of a contract for the UK Border Agency and the Home Office spared no expense in ensuring they were of the highest quality.
Made by Alexandra of the UK and never issued, these Home Office Jackets do not give the appearance of being military or police jackets. Care was taken to allow these jackets to be business casual with the "UK Border Agency" logo able to be stored in the front jacket pockets when not needed. The dark blue black color means you'll be able to wear these jackets with virtually any color or style of pants and look great.
Photos don't aptly describe this jacket! The quality of the material, the workmanship involved in producing it are far above even what the regular price listed. If you need a lightweight, professional looking jacket at a bargain basement price - grab one of these before they're gone!! They are "Quality One!!"
You will never find a better jacket for the price. Very well constructed. Good looking. Professional look.
I's a mystery to me why the Home Office's quartermaster kicked these fine jackets to the kerb. The jacket sheds all contaminants - dandruff, dog fur, dust and dirt - readily, is never wrinkled (unlike in the photos,) presents a crisp appearance, and is an excellent wind block. I'd buy another, but this one has worn like iron. Discreet for everyday use, but the vaguely military cut, epaulets, badge loop, and radio mic hangers all broadcast officialdom. If you're working security, wear this jacket for that extra ounce of professional presence.
An excellent jacket; extremely well made and very high quality! They were made to provide a professional appearance; no corners cut, no shortcuts in manufacture, quality fabric, made by `Alexandra.
It is so nice, it calls out for a hangar instead of hanging it from a peg!
