These High-End Bomber Jackets Are Rooted in Functionality

Shearling, cashmere and suede.

The bomber jacket has transcended its utilitarian roots and created demand in the luxury market. It makes sense: The jacket’s silhouette looks good on a range of body types, and it’s a versatile garment that can be dressed up or down. Now, brands are riffing on the classic materials — leather or nylon — and using suede, shearling, silk and cashmere. These luxe versions are still rooted in day-to-day functionality, but the high-end materials give them an edge. They’re warmer, softer and loaded with nuanced details. Sure, they’re ridiculously expensive, too. But if you’ve got money burning a hole in your pocket, these bombers are a seasonal splurge you won’t regret.
