"The bomber jacket—or MA-1 if we're being technical—has a longstanding history that stretches from the middle of the 20th Century into today. Starting as a jacket that was best suited for chilly, cramped cockpits, the jacket has become into an outerwear staple that's seen high fashion reinterpretations for the modern man.
The bomber jacket as we know it today would not have existed without the influence of two jackets that came before: the A-2 and the B-15.
When making the switch to MA-1 jackets, which occurred between 1949 to 1950, a few changes were made to the B-15 style. Most notably, the fur collar was replaced with a knit collar, primarily because the fur collar got in the way of the parachute harness. An orange liner was added to help promote rescue visibility in the event of a plane crash, making the jacket reversible. A nylon body became the standard due to the relatively new (at the time) material's ability to remain dry and prevent rain or water from soaking into the jacket.
While we associate the Army's “sage green” with just about anything military related, the original color of bomber jackets were in a “midnight blue.” During the course of the Korean War, and especially during the beginning of the '60s and the Vietnam War era, the jacket was shifted to the sage green color in order to more effectively camouflage soldiers in countrysides with dense vegetation and plant life.
Today's bomber, depending on where you buy it, will either be a very close reproduction of the classic, or tailored towards modern tastes. A brand name in their own right, Alpha Industries received a military contract in 1963 to create MA-1s, and began producing for civilians in the '70s. You'll find that their jackets are military spec replicas, with concessions made in color, and materials for a wider civilian audience.
Streetwear brands like regularly reinterpret the bomber jacket, often collaborating with old-school manufacturers like Alpha Industries or Schott NYC to make custom versions. On the other end of the spectrum, many labels aim to make super accurate reproductions of the standard issue versions, down to every last detail.
Even fast fashion retailers have designed their own versions of the jackets. While newer versions may not be cockpit-ready, there's a reason that most guys want a bomber jacket: You can't hate on something that's as practical as it is stylish."
