The only thing you have to remember if you're buying a bomber jacket as a tall woman is to make sure you get one that's long enough. It just looks silly if you get a normal length bomber jacket, because it can look like the jacket is cropped, if you're particularly tall. The same thing applies for shorter women. If you are shorter, then try to get a shorter jacket , and one that's a little more fitted. Quilted bomber jackets can make even skinny girls look a little poofy, so keep that in mind too.
But on the whole, the bomber jacket is a great fashion statement for both men and women, and with shearling being so in this season, it's a great choice for this winter. Of course, it's not one of the originals, but still, I think it gives him a certain pilot-y cool.
And I think he's happy just to get a jacket that's not a nylon bomber jacket -- he wore one of those for years and got to where he hated it, so I'm sure the shearling will be a big improvement.
CopperPipe Post 2 Bomber leather jackets are so cool! I think that a mens bomber jacket is the epitome of all the many things you associate with pilots -- daring, courageous, a little dangerous, but at the same time still the "good guy. I think that I may just end up settling for something other than the A-2, since you can still get some really nice looking ones even if they're not quite authentic.
I'd go for a black bomber jacket, I think -- definitely not a nylon bomber jacket though, those things just look weird to me. If anybody reading this actually has one of the original A-2s, you have my undying envy! I've been told it is an original coat. I need to sell it. How do I go about getting what it is worth?

To say that we are fans of this jacket from the small Los Angeles-based brand Coldsmoke is a bit of an understatement.
