The Type A-2 Bomber Jacket: bombs, babes and wartime fashion (photos)

Share this:

THE Bomber jacket was the American Type A-2 leather flight jacket that allowed US military men to wear their hearts on their backs. The original jackets were either made from horsehide, goatskin and cowhide. They were always brown. The lining was silk, although later it was cotton. But the back could feature pretty much whatever you liked – so long as it was bombs and babes:
