Can you believe it? Can you believe that I'm still searching for an acceptable bomber jacket that can be purchased for say, 100€?
Almost all of the ones that I come across are too shiny and fit like garbage. I believe some of you must be struggling with the same issue so that is why I've made a thread instead of a post in the w2c.
Pic Related, perfect Rick bomber that I simply can't afford
I do believe I'd commit awful, awful things for Asap Rocky's bomber collection. This is how I want my search to end, with a bomber that fits like this.
Black, Silver Hardware, Not Shiny, short and 'boxy' fitting, almost balloon like but not going overboard. Very tight cuffs to create that effect on the sleeves.
Preferably with a placket and a pocket on the sleeves.
Another perfect bomber. I might even prefer this to the Rick one.
Another nice one from Rag&Bone, though the fit isn't quite right. Perhaps thats why it's only $500 rather than over a thousand.
Another Asap Rocky bomber. Believe this is Dries Van Noten but not sure, impeccable
I have the same issue as you suspected!
Bought this about a year ago and love it, but I'm looking for a similar bomber except thicker.
BlackMerle makes a pretty cool bomber, but it's thin as well.
Black bombers with silver hardware get my autism going~
Weekday? I've considered it but it almost definitely doesnt have that nice fit I desire
Yes, so many of them are so thin, like the Weekday one above. I want it to feel heavy on me.
Bringing in this guy again. I'm partial to a bomber and T shirt with a relatively formal looking bottom half (black skinny jeans, Derby shoes)
100€ budget? Lmao no wonder you can't find a good bomber. Understandably, you don't want a shiny bomber, so dont look at nylon/polyester bombers. Find one thats a cotton blend. Those are matte in the color. As for the fit, proper bombers all fit pretty much the same. Just dont get a bomber that has extra pockets on for example the chest. Bombers should just have 2 front pockets, sleeve pocket and maybe 1 or 2 internal pockets
Clifton bomber. Cotton blend, its lined and pretty heavy and warm. Size up for a better fit.
>proper bombers all fit pretty much the same.
I wish that were true my friend.
>Save up, instead of wasting money on trend hopping £100 trash and get the Rick bomber.
I'd have to be beyond brain dead to to that in the next few years. When I get a decent paying job I'll happily drop 300-400€ on a nice jacket.
jokes on you I never leave my room and only wear robes
Copped this a few weeks ago but haven't had the chance to wear it for the weather
OP is trying so hard to fit in by talking about the big expensive brands
Just copped this NBHD 20th anniversary bomber for 320. It's an avirex but I'm hoping I can tailor the fit if it's too big. Good buy?
you won't get much better than this under 100 euros
>tfw bought that shitty h&m pilot jacket and its bulky as all hell with edgy thumb holes mentioned no where in the description. its like they want to fuck you over.
My favorite MA-1 iterations are Rick, The Soloist (both posted), Lad Musician, and KKA (pic related)
and the Lad Musician
I remember when I first came onto /fa/, I always wanted a Uniqlo bomber because they looked like exactly what I had been looking for. I never found one. Now I have my dream Rick jacket and I still kinda want one, does anyone have one in size small?
Found an old green bomber jacket with fur collar from japan in my grandpas closet a while back while shopping for one online
Took it the cleaners and after three days shit came back crisp as fug
God bless my old man. Saved me a few dozen bucks.
Bought this one during christmas sales in F&F (I don't know how you guys feel about stuff from there but whatever) for like £14/$20 and it fits just fine imo.
I got this for half price off some chick online did I do decent on this bomber
Where can I find a thick black cotton bomber? I've been looking everywhere and its extremely difficult to find
This Uniqlo one is close enough but its not in shops in Aus at the moment
I don't care about fitting in on an anonymous online message board. Thats how I make purchases, look at what I really want and find an alternative I can afford.
I know, I mean even when I'm making decent money, I still don't have it in me to cop the Rick one.
You've bought shame into this thread
I have an ASOS bomber jacket and it's really great. Don't listen to anyone who says otherwise; they're most likely just parroting what others have said. It's the best cheap bomber jacket you can get. The amount of compliments I get on mine is ridiculous, including on this board.
I think this is the one I have:
and here it is in black
I hope those links work. :-)
You might be able to find it if you search. I didn't look around for too long.
Also, if you're worried about shininess, the jacket isn't nearly as shiny as it is in the image. That's just a consequence of the lighting. In fact, my jacket isn't shiny whatsoever.
I want this leather ma1 badly. Thoughts?
Its about $500 AU so I will have to make sure the place I buy it from has returns in case I don't like it/the fit.
>they never look good
They look really good on the models to me. I'll make sure I get the Alpha Industries one.
I would kill for something like this but I cant find it anywhere
Something like this
But they have a lot of similar jackets
not to promote my own shit, but im selling a ermenegildo zegna leather bomber on ebay right now. retailed for $2400 and its only at 49.99 at the moment. its a really sick jacket if you like bombers (size 52/L). Ends in like 5 hours
>buying a jacket to hang from your back
wow that only took about 45 seconds you lazy fuck
alpha industries slim fit, shit's cheap and good quality
stop complaining about fit because you're probably 300 pounds anyway and that rick bomber definitely wouldn't look good on you
I can tell you that it only will look good in photos.
Anyways pic related is the goat bomber. Vintage helmut lang in general makes the GOAT jackets
I tried that bomber on -- and plan on buying it this weekend.
Felt nice, for the price. My only quarrel is it had some red parts to the lining -- but that's just being nitpicky and you would only see it when it's off.
yeah there are good recent ones but the most interesting ones are the older models
heres another cool bomber (margiela contrast bomber)
our lord and savior knoch also makes some cool ones
pic related is my personal grail
pic related is a great bomber jacket
Ordered this one yesterday. Any opinions?
That's a dead link for me :/
Here's the only picture I think I have of mine.
Looking at this bomber from Carlings. Anything inherently wrong with it? The fit was perfect. It costs 100€ though.
found this leather flight jacket at a thrift store yesterday
looking good from the waist up, until
>RICK 'TRICKY' OWENS USES 'TRICK'
acne will always be my go to bomber desu
just go to a fucking military surplus you retard
literally costs 1/3rd what some poorly made "fashion" bomber would cost you, and it looks better. plus if you get one that is 1980s and back it's probably going to be made well because it wasn't made by 5 year olds in china
What does /fa/ think of the rose gold zip?
about three weeks I think. I ordered around christmas too, took him a while to send it but after it was sent it arrived in a couple of days. He answered all my emails, shoot him another
What do you say? Couldn't find a better image, it's a small local factory in our town, the jacket looks better irl. There is no weird texture on the jacket, it is all dark grey cotton. The buttons are also same color normally. It doesn't look so stretched out.
As far as details on bombers go, I don't really even bother with anything that doesn't have the sleeve pocket and silver hardware. But personal choices really, I feel like gold hardware looks just weird, same color as the bomber is acceptable.
Also diagonal chest pockets are cool as far as details go.
