The Perfect Casual Jacket For Spring
Spring is around the corner! And we have to be well prepared for the new season. One of my latest crushes is this Pepe jeans bomber jacket! A bomber jacket is the perfect men’s spring jacket as it works just as well for both day and night. Just like many other men’s wardrobe staples, the origins of this garment can be found in the 20th century’s military wear. The MA-1 flight jacket was designed for the US Air Force in the 50s and was worn by US pilots up until the Golf war.Today, bomber jackets come in different fabrics. The most common ones are nylon, suede and leather. If you already own a black bomber jacket, it may be time to pick a whiter tone.
Style and Fit
With bomber jackets, you can keep it casual or dress it up. Match your jacket with a pair of trousers, a pair of trainers and a white shirt to get a trendy and sharp look.
When choosing a bomber jacket, you should pay special attention to the shoulders. It’s the most important aspect for a perfect fit.
- The jacket seams should lie directly on the corner of your shoulder
- You should be capable of lifting your arms without struggle
- Regarding the length, the jacket should hit the top of your hips.
- Bomber jackets are usually slim fitted, yet you should be able to zip it up easily
