The fireman jacket comes back every now and then, for both men's and women's looks, as it has become a piece of clothing that has crossed the boundaries of the fashion world and has been seen on the world's most famous catwalks.
The truth is that this jacket is mainly male, but we are never tired of seeing women wearing it and the big fashion brands reinventing it for chic and feminine styles. Now we will focus on how to combine this jacket with the masculine style.

What is bomber jacket?

This type of jacket became fashionable among the British army in the Second World War, with the classic elastic at the bottom and at the cuffs that characterize it, as well as the central zipper that runs along the front.
The fabric of this firefighting jacket can be mainly nylon or leather, although you can now find it in almost any fabric you can imagine.
This jacket became the urban fashion in the 1950s, thanks to films such as James Dean's Rebels Without a Cause or Marlon Brando's Wild, which is why it was common to see people on the street wearing this type of jacket.
Only a decade later it was the women who dared to wear them in miniskirts, the next boom being in the 80s when they dressed in leather and with metal applications.
Finally, in recent years, the jacket returned to the main fashion catwalks, but especially for women, and now you can find them with thousands of prints, designs, fabrics and colors.

Types of Bomber Jacket

Mainly we can find this type of garment with a different style, as we will see below:
Harrington jacket: ideal at first to combine with models for playing golf, it is made of comfortable fabrics, such as cotton, polyester or wool and is characterized by the inner lining they wear, decorated with checks or classic Scottish tartan. With fairly large side pockets, they also stand out because they have no seams in the shoulder area, making them more comfortable and giving more freedom of movement. If you can't imagine it, think of Elvis Presley, who made it so famous that it is still worn today that it can be combined with more classic clothes.
Bomber Jacket: the actual model of this jacket is made of leather or nylon and as we have said, it was the British army of the Second World War who made it fashionable. Men's bomber jackets main characteristics are the elastics in both the waist and cuffs, closed with a metal zipper and without collars, i.e. with the round top.

Choosing the one that best suits us

There are few things to take into account when choosing the model that best suits us, apart from the style we want to give, the colour or the fabric, since they are all more or less the same.
Although it is a type of short jacket, it has to be over the hips or flush with the hips, once it is closed, so when trying it on you should take this into account, because it looks really bad when it is too high and is above the navel.

When to wear bomber jacket

The jacket is mainly casual, so it is ideal for sporty, casual and everyday looks. Clearly, this jacket is not intended to be worn or combined with jacket suits or clothing but is best worn with jeans or even sports pants.
In short, it is a jacket that is perfect for informal events as long as you are not required to wear a suit to work, even for sports, not to forget that the Harrington model was born to play golf, so if you are a follower of this sport, you cannot go without a jacket of this style.
The jacket itself is also perfect for wearing with sports trousers, especially the nylon models, as the leather jackets fit better with jeans, creating stylish and casual looks.

How to combine it

The men’s bomber jackets are almost the basic garment that cannot be missing in the men's wardrobe. It can be combined with many different styles, but have in common the casual and casual styling.
Jeans: this best fits this type of jacket, that is to say, jeans that are a little worn with a basic t-shirt and a black leather jacket is a perfect casual style.
Chinese trousers: although this model of trousers is a little more dress able than jeans, they can be combined with the jacket, achieving a classic, formal look.
T-shirts: of course, if you are going to wear a bomber jacket, you should avoid shirts, as this jacket feels better without T-shirts.
Footwear: as we have said before, it is a sporty and casual jacket; the best thing to do is to wear it with sports shoes.


As its name suggests, the bomber jackets for men has obvious military roots, although today this style of clothing can be found in the collections of some of the most famous designers, who reinvent and update it for some seasons.
From dyed leather or patent leather, synthetic or neoprene fabrics, quilted and metalized to silkier and more printed fabrics, this silhouette is highly topical.
