The Multifaceted Bomber Jacket

It is the quintessential piece of spring outerwear, and the most versatile by nature. Here’s our take on the bomber jacket and how to wear it

arm or lightweight, smart or sporty, sophisticated or essential - and always a classic. The bomber jacket is a multifaceted garment that tells a lot different stories, all of them sharing the unmistakable shape of this simple waist-length jacket with cinched cuffs and waists and a zippered front.

The very first bomber was issued by the US Army around the 1930s in the form of a heavy-duty leather jacket, and it gradually entered civilian life only around the 1950s. Since then, the bomber went through several metamorphoses which dramatically altered its original conception. First adopted by urban youth subcultures and later the object of fashion design experimentation, the bomber eventually emancipated from all these references to become a versatile and cross-cutting model acting as the base for new inspirations and matches.

How To Wear It


The bomber jacket is a style-fluid garment which shuns all strict definitions. While it is true that it is not suitable for a black-tie dress code, a dark and essential bomber jacket will always look great over a shirt and necktie, just as much as it will with a pair of jeans and a casual sweater. Of course, a careful consideration of the jacket’s color, fabric and pattern is the crucial premise to a successful outfit; as a general rule, if you are looking for versatility, go for a sophisticated and minimalist bomber jacket.
