9 THINGS THAT MAKE LEATHER BOMBER JACKET DIFFERENT FOR YOU

Bomber Jackets have been loved equally by both men and women. They are a perfect balance between style and staying warm in cold weather.  As in the First World War, the closed cockpits weren't yet invented; these were the best things the pilots had to keep themselves warm, hence the name vintage leather Bomber Jacket. They are also called Flight Jackets. Although they were quite bulky back then, they have reduced in ‘bulkiness’ quite much but still retain their essential characteristics which make them distinguishable from other jackets.

But one might ask the question, aren’t a black or brown leather bomber jacket just like all of the other jackets which we currently have on the market? There are quite a bit of significant differences among them which will be talked about down below. The second similar question that might pop into someone’s mind is that how can you differentiate between this bomber leather jacket and other jackets? Let’s begin the characteristics of jackets that makes it stand out from the crowd of Leather Jackets.

USE OF RIB STITCH

A bomber leather jacket has a Rib Stitch, which they are also famous for. These stitching around areas like the cuffs, hem or collar give it all the most comfort, but they do not make it as much waterproof like other jackets like the biker ones. That’s okay as being drenched with water would be least of your worries if you are up in the sky and not biking.

These stitching also give it another essential element of warmth as they trap the heat inside of the jacket. I’d say this is the most important aspect of the entire Rib stitch thing. You can make Women or Mens Leather Bomber Jackets all the comfort you want, but if it is not performing its primary task of keeping someone warm that it might as well be thrown into the dump yard.

LOOSE-FITTING AROUND THE ARMS AND BODY

Not only do the leather bomber jacket Mens appear significant, but they are also somewhat loose on the inside. You would have noticed by now that they are a little loose-fitting and are not a tight fit around most of the areas of the arms and the body. 

BROAD, ANGULAR AND BOXY SHOULDERS

Another important feature, you may call it, of bomber jackets, is that they are quite boxy in the shoulder area. Some people might like this feature and would deliberately look this characteristic as it is one of the core signs of an authentic leather bomber jackets.

However, some others would not like this feature, so for them, companies have started to produce jackets which aren’t so much ‘boxy’. This characteristic had been given to the bomber jackets to make it look more masculine as men were the original targets of this jacket.

NO CHEST POCKET

Most, of all not have diagonal pockets in the waist region. So, you are out of luck if you have the habit of putting items such as pens, cash, etc. in the front pockets. Even though a few alternatives exist in the market with pockets on the chest but they go against the fundamental fashion principle of the Mens and Womens leather bomber jacket. And if you get to see those styles for yourself, you would figure out quickly that why chest pockets are omitted.

LARGE FRONT POCKETS

The leather bomber jacket has pretty big diagonal pockets in the waist area. These aren’t your standard pockets to just put coins or other small items in them; these are pockets big enough to put large items that won’t usually fit in pockets. The Womens leather bomber jacket usually has these features.

MOST ARE MADE FROM NYLON

People are shifting towards the use of other items; mostly towards leather. This is because there are factors in leather that make it the primary choice. It is durable, sturdy, has a long life, is fashionable, flexible and lastly it does not cost much. With all that being said, the use of nylon is still predominantly there which shouldn’t be avoided as that is one of the main pillars upon which Womens and Mens black leather bomber jacket were built.

GREEN: ONE OF THE MOST PREFERRED COLOR

The most preferred colors are black, white or sometimes blue; green is almost never there. But that is not the case here in bomber jacket. Although this hasn’t been the case from the start, after its inception, people began to think about the best color and hence the green color was chosen. This is because they thought that in case a plane goes down, and the pilot needs camouflage, this color would be the best one to use as it blends in nicely with the environment. From there onwards it stuck, and people never gave up on the traditional green look.

The color has also transferred to more modern types as compared black or brown leather bomber jacket where it looks equally wonderful, just like the classic ones.

UNIQUE DESIGN

And lastly, we would be talking about how these bomber jackets have a different and unique design of their own. Everything from the zipper to the cuffs had to be done in a specific way for the jacket to be classified as a bomber jacket. The first difference in design is that the zipper closures on the front are really tight so that cold air does not come in and that the warm air does not escape out; this further improves their primary role of keeping the wearer warm.

MOST ARE HUGELY PUFFED

You might think that the bomber jackets are puffed beyond need, but that isn’t true because the original ones were puffed much much more than what we have right now. The ones that are releasing these days are getting slimmer and slimmer in design.
