The good old Bomber Jacket as well as the Fair Isle Knitting style both have a long history . The particular technique of Fair Isle Knitting has its origins in Scotland. It is used to create patterns in different colours, traditionally never more than 5 in total and no more than 2 colours per row. Fair Isle Knitting gained popularity in 1921 when Edward VIII The Prince of Wales started wearing Fair Isle Sweater Vests.

Now Oliver Spencer picks up the Fair Isle Knit for a makeover of the iconic Bomber Jacket. It has a woven wool-blend body and knitted Fair Isle-patterned sleeves in the same pattern as the Fair Isle Knit Sweater of the collection.

The Fair Isle Knit Bomber Jacket is available at Mr. Porter
