The Classic Bomber is a Must Have and One You’ll Keep Forever
The numbers don’t lie. Google’s latest official Fashion Trend Report based on its search engine analytics ranked bomber jackets as the number one searched item for 2016. The flight jacket (also known as the bomber jacket) has over the years made the transition from the runway to, well, the runways in New York, London, Milan and Paris.
Once worn exclusively by military pilots, the bomber jacket now inspires 21st-century designers who are switching up the materials, hardware, and patterns to create distinctive designer versions. It’s a staple now at all the men’s fashion shows. The bomber has become an integral part of every man’s wardrobe, and for very good reason. It’s the forever-sporty, off-duty favorite of every athlete, and is perfect for any spur of the moment outing.
A close cousin of the track jacket, the bomber is an incredibly versatile wardrobe staple. Not to mention it’s a really good way to rock the athleisure trend and keep your look polished. Wear it casually with distressed jeans or dark denim to add a layer of style to a plain white tee or button down. Either way you can’t go wrong, it’s the jacket that keeps on giving.
