It’s the Bomb

  The growing discussion over nuclear crisis made The Garconnieres anxious. Talking about war in this part of the world is no game, they think, and crazy people – from both side – must shut up and start cooling everything down. At least till Sliman’s first show.

Speaking about war and fashion, the muses are not silent when the cannons are heard: The army look is hot again, and the bomber jacket is one of the must items of the season. 

The bomber jackets were born in World War I, when airplanes did not have an enclosed cockpit and pilots had to wear something that would keep them sufficiently warm. Pilots had already begun wearing long leather coats in 1915, and the trend caught on. The U.S Army established the Aviation Clothing Board in September 1917 and began distributing heavy-duty leather flight jackets; with high wraparound collars, zipper closures with wind flaps, snug cuffs and waists, and some fringed and lined with fur.

Here are few bomber jackets for Netanyahu and Barak to consider:
