    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.

    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.

    i think that jacket would look better with jeans. that doesn't strike me as a "bomber" jacket, it looks more like a "black leather jacket" like what the fonze wore. now this is a bomber jacket http://estore.websitepros.com/stores...G1TGANTfrt.jpg

    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..

    Worst case scenario:

    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

    lol...I don't think that it will. I can still see your tie. If you have a confidence problem, you should deal with that before you do any more shopping. Your self-loathing is manifesting itself in your clothing choices.
    That was a nice burn.

    During the mid 80's to the mid 90's every "Dad" had a flight jacket to wear with washed jeans and deck shoes. You better come up with an awesome updated look with the right fit and mix of other clothing to make it work.
