CHRIS SULLIVAN, STYLE JOURNALIST and legendary former director of Soho’s Wag club, suggests why bomber jackets transcend the notion of fashion – “which is rather unbecoming for any man over the age of 30”. . . In the UK during the second world war a cottage industry sprang up of American servicemen getting their A2s copied by English tailors. Sullivan says: “You can have a bomber jacket for 30 years and still keep wearing it because it will always look good.”
