Topshop MA1 Tall Bomber Jacket in Khaki
I’ve been interested in obtaining a bomber jacket for some time. They have been gaining popularity again the last few seasons, but one thing has always been holding me back – one that fitted just how I like. I’m quite a fan of clothing which has a more fitted look to it. If it’s too saggy or loose, I never feel comfortable wearing it. I’ve tried numerous bomber jackets from various brands, yet they always had a slightly oversized fit on me, then on the few occasions it had a good fit for my frame, the sleeves would be too long!
It was suggested to me to actually try on a women’s bomber jacket, in particular the ones from Topshop as they have quite a masculine look to them. This was quite a daunting prospect at first, trying on a girls jacket in store! Shrugging off this fear, I took a guess at my size being a UK 10 Tall in the Topshop MA1 Bomber Jacket. To my surprise, it actually fitted just how I wanted and was what I had been looking for all along in a bomber jacket. Nicely fitted in the shoulders, and the arm length was more or less perfect. The Tall version was ideal as the hem length reached the pockets of my jeans, while the standard MA1 Bomber was a little too feminine.
I teamed my new wardrobe addition with my PAIGE Transcend Croft Skinny Jeans. These are lovely and soft, easy to wear, rivalling the famous Diesel Jogg Jeans in the comfortable denim stakes. Finishing off the look with a pair of brown leather high tops from Topman really completed the style I was going for. Now that I have a men’s fashion blog, I’m interested to know, would you other guys be tempted to try a ladies jacket to get a closer fit? Buy the Topshop MA1 Bomber Jackets online here.
