Originally known as ‘Flight Jackets’, Bomber Jackets have come to be a popular fashion piece for both men and women in a large variety of styles and colours, with brands often putting their own twist on the classic shape. This article will go through a brief history of bomber jackets and how they became one of the best outerwear pieces to have in your wardrobe. It shall then present the best bomber jackets for men in 2022.
History of Bomber Jackets
The Bomber Jacket was created by the US Army Aviation Board in 1917 to keep WW2 pilots warm in the open air cockpits of fighter planes. They often had knit waistbands and cuffs in order to insulate the jacket from the cold air. Not only did this have a practical purpose, but it also gave the bomber jacket style a particularly flattering shape and fit, which still remains to this day.
Bomber Jackets could be considered one of the earliest styles of clothing which bridged the gap between military function and civilian style, being popularised in the 1950s by the likes of Marlon Brando in A Streetcar Named Desire and James Dean in Rebel Without Cause.
