Just got it from US Wings. It's not a fashion "namebrand" but it's an American made military brand and I'm almost sure it's higher quality than anything I could find in the mall.

I just wanted a bomber jacket...Just curious how it fits into fashion.









I hope it gives me more confidence

Is it warm?

How would you feel wearing it while on a raid over the Ruhr industrial complex in 1944?

It's a classic jacket and could look good on you, but NOT with what you are wearing in that picture.

Isn't it an Indy-Jacket? So everything Mr. Jones wears should work. Chinos, Aldens , a whip etc.

And yes, that tie is horrible, no matter if it's x-mas or not.

Thats a G-1
Mine is a dark brown A-2.. both are the two classic bomber jacket styles for the most part.

Lol I'd hate to be so fashion-worried. I'll wear the goofiest stuff.. these ties were a buck each and sing songs! Like old ringtones on a cellphone kinda sing. Fun stuff

It's not an Indy jacket but was the main influence. Glad people would think of it as an Indy jacket though

Oh I usually wear jeans too..

it's a nice jacket. i bet they would look better with blue jeans and a matching belt/shoes, as opposed to slacks. can you verify the color for me. cause from here they seem like a dark brown, but

Yeah just ignore the pants lol.. they're just some khaki cargo pants I was wearing.

Leather jacket is only step 1 in the fashion improvement plan
