One of the most popular jackets of all time- the bomber jacket. Suitably worn at any time of year, and in particular at Spring where the weather is mixed- warm and cold. Available in a variety of colours and materials- Ape recommends getting one in suede (a form of leather) this Spring to stay one step ahead of the rest.
Add lightweight warmth for the weeks ahead, and a super versatile smart and or casual piece to your wardrobe. The Suede Bomber Jacket will never go out of style- consider it an investment piece. Opt for a classic style in a traditional colour way for longevity, worn with jeans, a t-shirt and casual shoes or smart sneakers. Here are three of the best across a range of price points.
Three of The Best
Parisian brand A.P.C. always deliver a clean and considered approach to design, and their bomber jackets are no different. Your best option is to go for a simple, plain design, cut in a slim-fit. This A.P.C. collaboration with Louis W (£910) is a great example of what you should be looking for – it is lined in smooth satin, and finished with flexible ribbed trims in a grey-anthracite shade, ideally worn with blue denim.
Oliver Spencer have always been a super reliable menswear choice, and reliability is exactly what a wardrobe piece as staple as a bomber jacket needs. A hardwearing suede bomber (£659) looks great in a classic tan colour way, with blue chinos and a pair of smart, black sneakers. For an exacting fit this zip-through jacket features an adjustable waistband for the perfect fit- always ideal for an item that’s intended to be worn over a long period of time. Similarly to A.P.C.’s bombers, they’ve also got a classic, minimalist feel that works so well in outfits like these.
Slightly more affordable, but still great quality menswear is always on offer from Jaeger, and their suede bombers are no exception to this rule. You can’t go wrong with is navy and the super-soft jacket pictured, for instance, (£399) boasts a comfortable sporty lining against some stylish tonal leather detailing. It happens to be waterproof too, always a bonus for unpredictable Spring or Autumn months where the weather can change at the drop of a hat. Jackets like these are best worn with a pair of navy jeans, a white t-shirt and a pair of smart sneakers- ideally in white.
