• Ask the Experts: Bomber Jackets

    Style  

    I recently sat down with Mr. Porter for their Ask the Experts series to talk about the past and present of our favorite jacket of the season: the bomber. Be sure to check out what Sam Lobban, Chris Sullivan, and Christopher Raeburn have to say as well. I'm honored to be in such good company.

    Solid work, Fred. Very articulate and informative. I enjoyed your ideas on that pairing of preppy and rugged material/fabric for a classically-inspired, but also modern look.

    A very thoughtful take on the bomber Fred.  You may understandably be honored to be among the other chaps, but you certainly held you own.

    This was very well done. I’m glad there is a renewed interest in bomber jackets. Also, it is great that sheep and lamb options were mentioned. I think a lot of people miss the true functionality of the jacket if they don’t choose these materials. The cowhide is not authentic military issue, and it can be a bad choice on a cold day.
