About Bomber Jackets
The bomber jacket, also known as a flight jacket or bombardier jacket, was originally designed to be worn by pilots. They were created to keep pilots flying during World War I warm, since the aeroplanes back then didn?t always have an enclosed cockpit. During the Seventies, groups of people called skinheads began to covet the style of the jacket and since then the bomber jacket has continued to be a popular fashion item in people?s wardrobes. Although changes have been made to the original bomber jacket, the design has remained, at its core, the same as those early days. This means that they are made for comfort, with plenty of room to move and breathe.
The great thing about the bomber jacket is that it comes in so many different designs. It can be worn by men, women or children and comes in a variety of materials and colours. For women, the silk bomber jacket is particularly in style at the moment. It can be worn with heavier materials to balance out the light weight of the jacket and gives the wearer a sophisticated, fashion savvy look. There are also bomber jackets for men, which became particularly popular after Ryan Gosling wore one in the 2011 film, Drive. The bomber jacket is an easy, ready to go accessory for men that can complete any outfit. Different designs make it possible for both sexes to wear the bomber jacket in almost any circumstance, from day wear to business casual to sporting events. If you have a bomber jacket in your wardrobe, you have a jacket for all occasions.
