With a massive subcultural history in tow, the bomber jacket's timeless status is unquestioned. A constant focus of collections spanning the streetwear-luxury scale, the Bomber Jacket is a season-in, season-out staple of the highest order.
Since its repurposed popularity in the '50s, the bomber has been adopted by countless subcultures, from punk to hip hop, and yet still holds strong as one of the most popular casual items available. Almost every label has tried its hand at the bomber jacket and that’s another reason why it remains an essential wardrobe addition. With the MA-1 firmly on the mind, we picked out some of the best around right now.
From iconic pieces by Jil Sander to inventive takes on the style by Burberry, we're serving up one clear argument for why the bomber jacket might be the most versatile piece in your wardrobe this fall and way beyond.
Scroll for some of the best bomber jackets for men
Études x Martine Syms Horizon Bi-Color MS Bomber
In collaboration with American artist Martine Syms, Études brings a philosophical new angle to this bomber jacket. Split into a beautiful two-tone palette; it's finished with contrasting statements to either side.
AMBUSH x Nike Satin Bomber Jacket
Yoon Ahn's continued collaboration with Nike not only works but works well — seamlessly merging AMBUSH's playful industrial aesthetic with Nike's future-focused performance wear. Here, the wardrobe staple mixes technical canvas with satin to create a pastel transitional piece perfect for Spring.
Bottega Veneta Jacket
If you haven't learned already, Bottega Veneta knows how to construct beautifully made clothing. Pieces like this light and airy Italian-crafted bomber will carry your Spring, Summer, and Fall for years to come, making it a solid investment piece. The quirky zipper is a nice touch.
Prada Logo-Plaque Bomber Jacket
Yes, yes, we all need more Prada in our lives. There are not that many Prada pieces in my rotation, but the clothing I have are grails — rare pieces ten years old that still look and feel as good as the day I bought them. I suspect the same will happen with this Prada plaque men's bomber jacket.
Boramy Viguier Brown Canvas Victorian Bomber Jacket
Spread collars are becoming a thing again, and we are not mad about that. They add a distinct and refreshed look to Boramy Viguier's take on the bomber silhouette.
Burberry Quilted-Shell Bomber Jacket
Burberry's quilting on the bomber adds a subtle depth and texture to the jacket. Now, pair that with the piece's stunning walnut brown and silver detailing, and I think we have a winner for Spring 2022.
Jil Sander Gabardine Bomber Jacket
It's simple. It's chic. It's Jil Sander. The high-neck insulated collar on this bomber jacket will keep you warm if you plan to ditch your scarf in early Spring.
Y/Project Draped-Shell Bomber Jacket
The dropped shoulders on Y/Project's grey bomber give the jacket a distinct look. This is important as we expect to see many bomber jackets this season. Why not switch it up for gram?
EYTYS Black Polar Bomber
Similar to our Jil Sander entry, a sherpa collar can do wonders for those living in areas where warm weather has a slow start (I am looking at your Berliners.) EYTYS jacket is fully insulated with wool for when you want to protect your upper half.
