A flight jacket is a casual jacket that was originally created for military pilots and eventually became part of popular culture and apparel. It has evolved into various different styles and silhouettes including the ‘letterman’ jacket and the fashionable ‘bomber’ jacket that is known today.
The bomber jacket trickled down into subcultures such as punk and has recently made its way into high fashion. The military bomber jacket was made to be versatile for functionality as it was a lightweight jacket that kept soldiers warm.
Subcultures picked up on the stylish jacket and established it as part of their uniform such as the British skinheads in the late 1960s.
The bomber jacket is a neutral fashion item with no limitations when it comes to genders, ages or styles. The trend may also account for the blurred gender line in society nowadays. Since the social status of females is improving, women have much more freedom to choose their own styles and aesthetics which is not limited to being completely feminine or girly. The unisex bomber jackets serves as a great opportunity for females to choose their own style.
