According to the world’s top fashion publications, last winter was the season of the bomber jacket. (An oxymoronic statement in our books; after all, how can one of the perennially classic icons of men’s style go in or out?) But bombers were everywhere — from the Parisian and Milanese runways, to the lowliest of chainstores. And long may it continue; few other men’s pieces have the versatility of a bomber, and look just as good with beaten-up jeans and a plain white tee, or a button down oxford, knit tie and gray flannel pants. No wonder it’s been a staple of the Ivy League set for over 60 years. This suede jacket, by Brooks Brothers, is an exceptional example of the form: Try it with colored chinos, rich brown corduroy pants, or stonewash denim, and you’ll be channeling Dustin Hoffman in The Graduate in no time.
