Where To Shop: Our Top 10 Bomber Jackets For Bomb-AF Girls
Take off, baby!
There's no truer measure of an iconic clothing item than a time-honored piece your dear old gramps loves just as much as you do. And no, we're not talking about that dazzling maroon three-piece suit and hat combo that never fails to make you smile – although you could probably write that outfit a love letter of its own. Born out of military utility, created to keep wartime pilots warm in open cockpits, the legendary bomber jacket possesses a rich history which can be traced through various subcultures, including the punk and skinhead movements, gay communities in the 1980s, and of course the fashion pack. Rebellious-looking and yet oh so smart – even Einstein wore his habitually – the easygoing jacket is the wardrobe essential we'll never get enough of. From traditional khaki utility to modern sporty cool, we've put together our top ten explosive edit to get you flying through fall in style.
