Acne Studios Vintage Style Shearling Jacket
Acne Studio's vintage style Vera shearling jacket caught our eye with it's manly fighter pilot style inspired by the B-3 military jacket build for cold-weather flight back in 1934 during World War II.
This WWII style bomber jacket is re-created by the Swedish luxury brand founded by Jonny Johansson in 1996 in luxurious English shearling in four colours - Navy, black, white and a unique pastel shade of mint green.
The navy Vera shearling bomber jacket is our number one choice as it is the closest to a military or public service uniformed officer's code-wear of colour with it's contrasting brown leather straps and black shearling trimming. If you really want to work the military air force fighter pilot style, pair the bomber jacket with parachute pants that have cargo pockets.
One can never go wrong in a classic black shearling jacket only the fact that's it's too boring and you probably have too many black colour winter clothing in your cupboard. Nevertheless, you can dress this little black style staple with a skirt, dress or long shirt and layer with pants to keep warm this winter.
In natural white, the colour adds a feminine touch to this otherwise chunky and slightly over-sized fighter pilot style jacket.
The Vera jacket is mint green or what they chaps at Acne Studios call "seafoam green" provides a light and airy, versatile look in contrast to the austere navy or black varieties of the shearling jackets.
