From Kanye West to John Legend and even Liam Hemsworth, the bomber jacket hasn’t stopped trending since 2016, and it doesn’t look to slowdown anytime soon. Stemming from military origins as a fighter pilot’s jacket, the bomber jacket slowly transitioned into popular civilian wear, apparent in subcultures from the punk movement in the 1980s to the grunge and alternative wave of the 1990s. Today, its popularity rises again as a quintessential jacket in a stylish man’s closet. Here are 5 excellent bomber jackets that will rock your outfit.
