The Everlane Bomber jacket was an item I jumped on when it released a few months back. I had been looking for a bomber jacket that was lightly padded and slightly warmer for travelling to Japan in the late Autumn months. I’ve been looking at my Everlane reviews and all of them seem fairly positive as I only really keep things I love and return anything that isn’t perfect or what I expected.
Sizing and Fit
A bomber jacket needs to fit perfectly as you only need one (or two depending on your colour choice). I got the Everlane’s Bomber jacket in XXS and sized down once again (Everlane always runs large for me). I’m normally a size XS or an US size 0-2.
The bomber jacket is definitely quite puffy looking and is a world of a difference away from Grana’s silk bomber. While the Silk Bomber is ideal for the summer and looks elegant and drapey, this one is more of a casual winter jacket. The length is very cropped (hitting the hip) but I’m quite petite and only 160 cm or 5’3. I like the puffiness of it especially when paired with slim jeans and or skirts/dresses. I wouldn’t wear it with anything too baggy as it might start to look a bit frumpy.
One detail that makes this bomber more unique is the ruching on the sleeves. The sleeves are gathered on the sides which is simple and not loud at all but adds a little something different.
I would say that it’s quite warm with the light padding but of course not comparable to any puffer jacket. The outer is made from Nylon which makes it very durable. While it’s made of synthetic materials, I’ve found that most bomber jackets are like this so it’s not an issue at all. The material is very durable feeling. In the past, I’ve had bombers that have a very delicate outside which could easily rip- but not this one!
They have a variety of colours including black, burgundy, pink and khaki. The pink was and is really tempting as it is just the prettiest shade ever. I thought the price of this jacket was pretty good at 80 USD. Thanks to you guys for referral credit, it came down even further.
In the photos, I wore it with the Everlane Cashmere Mockneck sweater and my Acne Studios South Jeans. The bag is an Alma bb in Amarante and the shoes are Adidas Stan Smiths.
I’ll be putting this away fora few months with the summer coming around in Australia. But I’ll definitely be reaching for it next Autumn/Winter.
