Bombs away: The best bomber jackets for men

Posted On By admin

Versatile, flattering and timelessly stylish, bomber jackets are a sartorial staple in the wardrobe of any well-dressed man (or woman). Originally designed for American fighter pilots during the Second World War, like the tried and tested trench coat, the bomber jacket has transcended its beginnings as military utilitarian wear to become an icon of contemporary style. Later adopted by skinheads and punks in the 1960s and 70s, by the late 90s, the bomber had become a symbol of the anti-fashion movement, and as such, high fashion designers, including Rick Owens and Raf Simons, began to send their own bomber jackets down the runways.

Now a firm favourite of the street style set, with fans including Kanye West and David Beckham, the bomber jacket is the ideal trans-seasonal piece to level up your classic jeans-and-a-white-T-shirt look. To best integrate your new bomber jacket into your existing wardrobe, you’re better off plumping for neutral shades – black, brown, navy blue, even forest green and khaki – that won’t clash, and will make styling your look that much easier. Alternatively, if you’re looking to make a statement a la Ryan Gosling in Drive, disregard that advice entirely and go for bright colours (white and metallic shades work equally well) with contrasting embroidery or appliquéed motifs.

So, whether you’re keeping things toned down or going balls-to-the-wall with your style, these are the best bomber jackets to buy right now.
