Let's face it: The bomber jacket trend is never going to fizzle out. Sure, there are some years when a blazer or a sporty track jacket become our go-to transitional toppers, but somehow, we always find our way back to the trusted military staple.
Originally designed to keep pilots warm in cramped cockpits during World War I, the bomber went through some punky, rebellious phases before officially meeting the runway a few decades ago. Despite its drop from the sky to the catwalk, the garment's always maintained an element of badassery, giving the wearer an undeniable cool factor — one unmatched by 2018's favorite matrix-inspired shiny leather trench.
The jacket's trophy purchase status also has a lot to do with the its relaxed fit and versatility, and it's the perfect outerwear option for those in-between months when nature is slowly, but surely, gearing up for winter.
Alas, we've combed the web to find 21 bomber jackets that will serve as your perfect fall companion, whether you're seeking a souvenir style, a military-inspired flight coat or even a knitted hybrid. You can shop them all in the gallery below.
