Three of the Best Leather Bomber Jackets

Leather jackets are back, but they're not for everyone. Which is why we've decided to point out the most versatile style of the leather jacket yet - the bomber. If it's good for Becks, it's good enough for you.

Leather jackets can be a minefield. Get it right and you'll be channeling young Brando. Get it wrong and you risk looking like a roadie for the Grateful Dead. The key here is style and fit. Too many people stick with one style throughout life, avoiding the fact that the Perfecto jacket, while nice, is best left to the younger folk. The best leather jacket to get your hands on is the bomber. It's more versatile and less prone to making you look like you're undergoing a midlife crisis.

The key thing with leather? You get what you pay for. Going cheap will only lead to disaster. So spend more and spend wisely.

 

Lot 78

The new guys on the block, Lot 78 was founded in 2008. They make a full range of clothing but their speciality is, and always has been, leather jackets. Case in point? Take this bomber featured, made from tumbled Italian leather, it's softer than butter left out overnight and will make any wearer look cooler than, well, the weather at the moment.

Edwin

Edwin's take on the leather bomber is a slightly more classic affair, basing its design on the USM flight jacket. The brown colour lends itself easily to navy denim and the lined body means it’ll keep you warm during a cold spell.

Eastman

The original makers of the flight jacket, Eastman leathers know a thing or four about a quality leather jacket. This flight jacket was first made into regulation clothing back in 1931, becoming the army air corp intermediate jacket. This jacket is vegetable tanned, a uncommon method due to costs, and made in exactly the same manner as the original jacket that was used in the war.
