A classic bomber jacket is an investment of sorts; Through years of ups and downs, these nylon jackets always manage to resurface on the fashion “must-have” lists world over. Now, thanks to the Obama effect, this specific Rag & Bone Manston Bomber Jacket, dubbed the ‘Obama Bomber Jacket‘, is all the rage after he was seen wearing it courtside at the UNC vs Duke game. Unfortunately, not the easiest to come by. Particularly as his jacket is customised with ’44’ embroidered on the sleeve.
The New York-based label that boasts expertly crafted urban style clothing, currently has the Manston Jacket up for pre-order with shipments predicted to be at the end of April 2019. Made from Japanese military nylon and the highest grade Swiss two-way zippers, you can expect reliability and quality to be at the core of this piece with a high-vis orange lining giving it that authentic bomber jacket finish.
As is with any superior product, if you lay down the dough for a good quality clothing item, it should last pretty much a lifetime. The Manston Bomber Jacket is no different and will retail at about AUD $835. We personally think the Rag & Bone Manston Bomber Jacket is worth the money and worth the wait. Don’t wait too long before you order though, because if history is anything to go by, it’s not a matter of if, but rather when it will be sold out.
