Originally created for military pilots, the bomber jacket, also known as the flight jacket, has worked its way up from wartime uniform to wardrobe essential.

Comfortable, cool and effortless, the outwear silhouette has been adopted by casual wear lovers for generations, still holding its own as a fashion staple to this very day. From high-end to high street, the bomber continues to be revived and reinvented season upon season, with little sign of stopping.
