I want to buy a bomber jacket. Should I go for an Alpha Industries around 100 or some mediocore 50 $ fast fashion line.
Or a legit military clothing store?
Alpha industries are milsurp, but they have other divisions that make different versions of the ma-1 for like urban outfitters and shit. I bought my alpha classic ma-1 from a milsurp store. The other jackets you would find there like rothco etc are pretty ass quality.
Alpha industries is worth it. If you want something cheaper and not as bulky, I actually highly recommend the ASOS bomber jacket despite what people may say. I own it and it's a great jacket. I get complements on it often.
I have it in dark blue, but I can't find it on there at the moment.
This looks like the place to ask this. What do you guys think, should I get a black asos bomber (aka >>10925304) or get a pic related off aliexpress. They're around the same price. Also to be noted, I already own a AI ma-1 in sage green.
bombers are a menswear classic and while they might be hot shit now and you can find cheap shitty ones everywhere, they still will be perfectly fine to wear whenever, so get a decent one.
alpha industries are the classic, but carharrt also has some nice ones for example.
>slim fit bombers
I went to a size S, it fits like op's pic. I'm normally an M in outerwear.
looking for poison green bomber like this
I got their MA-1 bomber and regret it. The fabric and elastic are really stiff and the cut doesn't allow for good movement. It was poorly stitched and trimmed and the lining ripped on the first day I wore it.
Wear it with the NASA flight suit.
I can attest to their quality. Mine has held up great and looks fantastic.
It's possibly we ordered different variations because mine hasn't had any of those issues. I don't understand how the lining ripped on yours. No such thing has even come close to happening to me.
I found the exact jacket I ordered:
We did, I got the MA1 bomber in black: http://www.asos.com/asos/asos-bomber-jacket-with-ma1-pocket-in-black/prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=5902468
I don't understand why it ripped either but it's a good 6" on the seam starting under the right arm. It's a gamble with fast fashion and I lost. Still looks good at least.
Got this White Mountaineering one from sale (150€). Anybody can help with tops? Black jeans and black/white sneakers are clear, but can't come with tops beside black and dark grey.
