A bomber jacket is normally a short, waist-length jacket with matching gathered waist hem and cuffs, often elasticated to give a tight, snug fit around the waist and sleeves. Initially, a bomber jacket was designed for pilots to wear so that they would be warm and protected from the cold at high altitudes but also allow freedom of movement to operate the plane's controls. Now the bomber jacket has become a fashionable outerwear garment for both men and women. A personalised bomber jacket can make a great addition to any uniform. Its practical nature means it is ideal as a work jacket and embroidered with a company logo can provide an ideal staff uniform item.
