    Hey everyone- I'm about to purchase my first bomber jacket. I'm 190cm, 75kg. My girlfriend says I'll look funny because I'm quite tall and slim. What do you guys think about the fit of a bomber jacket on this type of frame?

    I like the G-1 personally. http://www.cockpitusa.com/store/images/PAOHIDLKHHGGADDI.jpg

    It might look odd. It depends on shoulder width, leg length and slimness, etc. 75 kg isn't skinny enough to assume it would look lousy with most pants (less color contrast with the jacket likely would help).

    There is a chance that a super boxy one will not look the best on you. However, if you find a moderately slim cut one, I think it looks fine. See this gallery:

    Most of these guys are skinny fellows and do not look odd.
