Are bomber jackets ok in a business casual setting?

Perhaps I was unclear. Not all attendees of my elementary school became nazis. There were two or three that went in that direction however their choice of wardrobe was obvious.
Where are all these Nazis and Neo-Nazis that everyone is talking about? As the type of person who Nazis would like to kill, I want to know what places I should avoid. Is this more of a West Coast thing?

This was in Toronto, specifically. I wouldn't avoid the city on the basis of my anecdote because I doubt that the majority of residents of the city share such reprehensible views.

Isn't it all just a West Coast thing?

Edit: Are you sure you don't mean the GTA, @bicycleradical?

I've been to Toronto before. I'm just curious because so many people on here seem to have had encounters with Neo-Nazis and I fortunately never have. Never met one to the best of my knowledge.

Whew. I though our schools were bad, but not that bad.

It appears we endure a lack of both historical and sartorial knowledge.
Thankfully, it was only a few guys from my school that went in that direction. We went to different high schools. I became a surly punk rocker. They became nazis. We both wore big boots however that's where the similarities ended.

In the current environment, anyone who has, is or wants to read Dr. Suess is a nazi (neo or arch).

Most bombers will be fine in most buscas. Knit bomber-cardigans, sleek wool/cotton, suede A1s, shearling flight bombers, you name it. But Bulky Alpha Industries type bombers with loud patches, you'd be pushing it.

If you have something in mind, it couldn't hurt to show us before trying it.

Wearing military patches that you did not earn (example: a squadron patch if you were not a member of that squadron) is never appropriate.
