I have that navy Valstar and love it. I have the camel as well and may pick up the sage version this sale season.
If you don't mind me asking, where do you cop Valstar jackets?

Can't decide between the Valstar bomber or trucker:

Trucker no question about it.

I got mine from Porter.

Forum affiliate NMWA also stocks them - I will be picking up one from them when they restock my target piece this fall ~

Yeah I'm not in a rush to cop yet as I'm indecisive about the color.

Keri Langerman did a nice job styling the bomber on Jude Law in Vox Lux

i have the bomber and it's a great spring jacket, though the mossy gray is not the easiest to style. I mostly wear it with light denim and a tee. that said, i want a valstar trucker too =)

Both those Valstars seem nice. If it were me, I'd probably go with the trucker, but for no real rhyme or reason.

I like the Valstar trucker too but that color isn't optimal imo. Anything on the brown spectrum is much easier. Black is also cool in a Bradley-Cooper-in-a-Star-is-Born kinda way
