A rising star of spring, the bomber jacket is a new key jacket shape for menswear. Having been a major part of the skinhead and mod culture during the 60s and 80s, the bomber jacket last had a revival in the rave days of the 90s. Now that those 90s days are back in fashion, it’s time to get acquainted with the bomber once more. Wear it with rolled up jeans and brogues for a contemporary take on retro.Navy blue bomber jacket, H&M.On Bing: search for H&M jackets
