Menswear Essentials: The Bomber Jacket

Also known as a flight jacket, the bomber jacket was first worn by American fighter pilots during World War I. Maybe it’s the masculine military appeal (look up Tom Cruise in Top Gun), or maybe it’s the classic silhouette – whatever it is, bomber jackets make guys look instantly cool.


Originally made from heavy-duty leather, today’s bomber jacket comes in different fabrics and cuts.


For a casual look, pair your bomber jacket with a basic tee and ripped jeans. Take your jacket game up a notch and layer it over a lightweight hoodie. Finish it off with a pair of sneakers and a beanie hat.


The bomber jacket can be office-appropriate, too. Choose one in a neutral color, then pair it with slim-fit trousers and a crisp white shirt. Throw in a matching necktie if you’re in the mood to dress it up a little more.
