These coats have been keeping sailors in the Navy warm for many years. They were very practical for sailors because their wide lapels could be flipped up to keep their necks warm and the wool that they were made of would keep them warm even if it got wet. Their practicality along with their stylish look made them popular with civilians, and even today they remain a classic look that will never go out of style.
This style of sunglasses was created by Bausch & Lomb to be the perfect pair of glasses for military pilots. They were created with the optimal shape and material to protect the pilot’s eyes as well as allowing them to see better. They were made popular by General Douglas Macarthur (pictured), and eventually by many celebrities. Ever since they became popular designers have taken creative liberties with their shape and design, but the classic shape has always, and will always, be a sharp look.
As aviation technology advanced and planes became able to fly at much higher altitudes, the need to keep pilots warm and protected from the elements became more and more important. Thus the leather bomber jacket was created. The leather provided the necessary warmth and protection, and the design allowed for a wide range movement. Ever since then they have grown increasingly popular in the civilian population and have become iconic part of many movies.
