The Leather Bomber
It may seem strange that a style worn by flying aces in the military would become a lasting fashion statement in men’s wardrobes. Men’s leather bomber jackets were given a huge boost by movies in the early 1940's and again in the 1950's. The simplicity of the bomber style with its clean lines and unobtrusive look keeps them looking as fresh and new as the day they arrived on the men's fashion scene.
Men put a high premium on comfort in clothes they choose to wear. They also love the look and feel of fine grained leather. Comfort and top quality leather are main ingredients in bombers. That's what makes them so popular year after year. With just a hint of an upgrade for today's look, bomber jackets are now available in a variety of leather tones. A man can own two or more and have a completely coordinated leather wardrobe at his finger tips.
One other feature is that bombers are worn all-seasons. This is due to the fact that leather materials used in making bombers are of varying weights and are lined for colder weather or unlined for warmer temperatures. Some have small collars. Others are collarless. The sturdy front zipper is one of the most desirable items in men’s' wardrobes. Most men stock wardrobes with both styles.
Today's fashions include a trend toward the rich look of leather. In bombers, leather is essential for that comfortable, quality appeal and simple styling. With a bomber, it's wear and go. This is another convenient feature men prize in their busy lives. There's no fuss and no bother when dressing for casual or sports wear, just a clean, uncluttered look.
