Yet another menswear essential, the Bomber jacket too has its origins in the US military. These were originally worn by World War I fighter pilots, who operated bomber aircrafts to execute strategic raids—and that’s how this piece of garment gets its moniker! It has long shed its war-time image and today has become one of the most popular outerwear pieces in men’s fashion! What makes it such a big hit? A super flattering silhouette—which is slightly cinched at the waist and broader around the shoulders! Besides, its cropped hems, knitted cuffs and front zipper is very practical and versatile. You can wear it throughout the year, as it’s not heavy as a coat and can be used to dress up even a basic tee! Take style inspo from these actors on how to wear a bomber jacket…
