What Is a Bomber Jacket?
Bombers, derived flight jackets, are short jackets that stop at the hip. They traditionally have loose casual fits; a ribbed knit waist, cuffs, and collar; and functional sleeves and front pockets. Bombers can come in a variety of different styles and fits.
While they’re known as versatile streetwear today, bomber jackets were first popularized during the First World War by European fighter pilots. During this time, bombers were crafted from fur and leather to keep aces warm in freezing cold bomber plane cockpits.
Over time, these jackets began to evolve as different materials and designs were used, including wool, nylon, suede, and polyester. The U.S. Army developed several different models from the 1920s to the 1940s, but it was the B-15 that became the precursor to bomber jackets as we know them: the MA-1.
After the wars of the ‘50s and ‘60s, military clothing could be found in surplus stores, where bomber jackets then fell into the hands of various subcultures in Britain, Japan, and the U.S. as a fashion statement. Today, it’s a standard article of outerwear that is enjoyed by all cultures.
