A bomber jacket is a piece of comfortable outerwear whose name still nods to its original use (jackets worn by military pilots during World War I). It is a popular piece of clothing with a flattering silhouette, with a cinched waist and broad shoulder. This coat can be worn as a versatile piece since you can layer it over casual t-shirts or nicer button-ups.
What to Consider in a Men’s Bomber Jacket
Here’s what to think about before making a purchase:
- Material: Choose a material that fits your liking, whether it is a cotton or poly/twill blend.
- Sizing: Consider if the sizing will fit your measurements and if you will need to size up or down for the best-personalized fit.
- Weight: Determine if the material is light or heavy enough for your intended use.
