Bomber Jackets (otherwise known as Flight Jackets) are a tried and tested streetwear staple that have been around for decades and look to be for many more.
The most sought after is the MA-1, was originally developed when the Jet Age came about. These Jackets provided the pilots performance, safety and comfort, everything that was a necessity when it came to military use. Originally created as an intermediate weight flight jacket for use all year, construction was from high quality nylon fabrics and polyester interlinings. These materials allowed it to be open but still keep the wearer warm. Being as versatile, comfortable and durable as it was, made it easy for it to be the staple jacket for decades and continue for it to be to this very day over 60 years later.
The resurgence of the MA-1 Bomber Jacket in streetwear came from Europe as it was perfect for layering or as a highlight piece being zipped up or left open. The 70's and 80's saw these jackets being worn by Punks and Skinheads and then in the 90's throughout Hip-Hop. The Bomber Jacket is now a staple for Celebrities worldwide and a must have for any series streetwear fanatic.
