menswear inspired look bomber jacket street style playing with proportion in menswear

Fly boys wore jackets that were handsome, comfortable, substantial. There is an excitement you feel when you put on a real bomber. Maybe it is their storied past, warming daredevil fliers since the days of open cockpits. Whenever I want to play with scale and volume, I borrow from the boys. The coats of pilots and Hollywood legends, utilitarian shirts, oversized proportions…can be worn by the girls as well.

2017 marks the 100-year anniversary of the bomber jacket. In September 1917, the U.S. Army established the Aviation Clothing Board, which began distributing leather flight jackets to the American pilots of WWI.
