INTRODUCING

Wear the Legacy: Introducing The Harris Bomber Jacket.

The Harris Bomber Jacket – a garment that effortlessly embodies the spirit of its storied lineage, while delivering the perfect piece to see you through the seasons. Crafted from 7oz 100% Cotton Broken Twill for the body, 100% cotton webbing tape, and 100% cotton rip-stop sleeve fabric, we have honoured the original designs while adding our own &SONS touch. 

Originally known as 'flight jackets,' the ancestors of today's bomber jackets took to the skies in 1917, designed by the US Army Aviation Clothing Board to shield WWI pilots from the biting cold of open-air cockpits. The evolution of flight jacket design mirrored the progress of aviation, from the knit-waisted A-1 in 1927 to the iconic MA-1, setting a new standard for functional outerwear. It is regarded as one of the earliest designs to truly bridge the gap between military and civilian wear.

A future classic…Our Harris Bomber pays homage to this rich history, reimagining the classic with premium materials and meticulous craftsmanship. YKK zips, leather pullers, and thoughtfully designed pockets enhance its functionality. This is one of our most versatile jackets and can be easily paired with the rest of our collection. Layer over a shirt and elder during the cooler months and then simplify the outfit with a basic white T and chinos as the Spring arrives. 

The Harris Bomber is an homage to the enduring spirit of adventure and is now available to buy.

ORIGINS

The bomber jacket, a sartorial icon synonymous with Hollywood cool and military heritage, has seamlessly woven itself into the fabric of both cinema and classic military attire. Think Steve McQueen's resilient Hilts in The Great Escape or Bruce Willis' Butch Coolidge navigating Pulp Fiction with a suede MA-1. The allure of Top Gun's Maverick, leather jacket open, revs up the dictionary definition of cool. However, beyond the silver screen spotlight, the bomber's genesis lies in the pragmatic realm of functionality. Born in the crucible of World War I, where open-air cockpits demanded clothing that wasn't just fashionable but literally a matter of life or death. Fast forward to today, and the bomber jacket stands as a testament to style and survival. Early flight jackets were heavyweight, thick-leather designs crafted to shield pilots from the elements. With origins in the US Army Aviation Clothing Board in 1917, these jackets evolved with aviation advancements, morphing into styles like the A-1 in 1927. The A-1, with its knitted waistband and cuffs, set the stage for the modern bomber, blending rugged utility with a flattering fit. In 1931, the A-2, a zip-closure evolution, became an aviation legend. Worn by thousands of pilots through WWII, its longevity mirrored its heroic wearers. Customization became a tradition, with pilots painting tributes on their jackets. The UK, with Leslie Irvin's sheepskin invention in 1932, added its touch to flight jacket history. Post-WWII, jackets like the G-1 and the MA-1 marked transitions in design, paving the way for the sleek, nylon MA-1 of the late 1950s. Today, the bomber jacket carries the weight of history and the promise of enduring style. Whether a vintage A-2 or a modern incarnation, wearing one is not just donning an outer layer; it's embracing a narrative, a connection to the past, and appreciating the craftsmanship that transcends time.
