Everlane Cotton Bomber Jacket Review
Bomber jackets are a fan favorite here at Gentleman Within and for good reason. It’s every bit as versatile as it is stylish and the perfect summer to fall or winter to spring transitional jacket.
I’ve written an in-depth post on how to wear a bomber jacket 7 ways. I’ve also reviewed the Alpha Industries MA-1 Skymaster in the past and featured Mission Workshop’s Mission Bomber.
So how does Everlane’s bomber jacket stack up?
Everlane Cotton Bomber Jacket: How Does It Feel & Fit?
Everlane’s cotton bomber jacket is equipped with a ribbed collar, cuffs and waistband. It’s a much more modern take on the classic MA-1 style and design, sans zipper with a mid-weight cotton shell and light nylon lining.
The drape is also much more modern. There’s not too much bunching around the sleeve cuffs like with the Alpha Industries bomber. The jacket is also generously cropped. It’s much shorter than other bombers I’ve tried on, which looks pretty flattering on my 5’6″ frame.
The sleeves on the other hand are slightly too long for my liking, but not a deal breaker. I’d say that Everlane’s bomber is the perfect spring jacket to throw on over a thin sweater or basic tee for effortless style.

Khoi – In a match up between Everlane’s Bomber and Alpha Industries MA-1 Skymaster, which do you find you would wear the most?
Khoi Nguyen says
Hey Luke, if I had to choose, I would wear Everlane’s bomber more often. It’s more elevated,thus easy to wear casually and slightly refined. The Skymaster is a new take on a classic, but is strictly more casual/streetwear. Cheers, -K
