As its name suggests, the classic bomber jacket has a military heritage. Created for US pilots in the 40s, the bulky leather G-1 has become something of a cult streetwear item over the years, thanks in no small part to Tom Cruise's look in Top Gun (stay tuned for the return of those aviator sunglasses and toothy grin with the Top Gun 2 reboot, due for release in 2020). But it's the more comfortable, soft-shelled cousin of the G-1, developed a decade after the original 1986 blockbuster, that’s arguably the more enduring style icon.
