The History of Men's Bomber Jackets
Bomber jackets (originally named flight jackets), were created in 1917 to keep WWI pilots warm in the open-air cockpits of the early fighter planes. The Aviation Clothing Board began distributing heavy-duty leather flight jackets with high wraparound collars, zipper closures with wind flaps and snug cuffs. Some of the jackets were also fringed and lined with fur.
The airforce bomber jacket design evolved alongside aviation advancements. As cockpits became closed and more narrow, new styles were introduced. The new advancements meant there was less space for a bulky coat, and so the US Army A-1 was introduced in 1927. The A-1 had a more streamlined shape and featured a knit collar, cuffs and waistband. With a stylish and streamlined fit, the A-1 laid the groundwork for the modern bomber jacket we know today.
In 1949-1950, the MA-1 model set a new standard for functional clothing. The MA-1 is regarded as one of the earliest designs to bridge the gap between military and civilian wear and continues to be the most replicated version across all types of applications.
What to Wear With a Leather Bomber Jacket
A versatile garment, the leather bomber jacket can be worn formally or casually. Pair it with a simple white T-shirt, slim-fit jeans and trainers for a classic style. Or, dress it up with a shirt and suede boots to make for a cool and sophisticated look.
