Fleet week may be canceled this year, but the bomber jacket is still a fall wardrobe essential. Originally designed for pilots during World War I, today's bomber maintains the original tight cuffs and gathered waist. The fitted silhouette kept pilots warm in an open-air cockpit, and it will keep you toasty in San Francisco's fog and wind. The silhouette is all American and will forever be associated with badass bravery. Throw a one over a blouse and skinny jeans for an instant dose of tomboy chic, and conquer any and all obstacles that may fall in your (flight) path.
