Mad Bombers & Aviator Jackets

I’m not sure how I became fascinated with shearling aviator hats and aviator jackets?  Was it my passion for studying about American history, specifically World War I and World War II (though the Civil War was equally as intriguing) or the costumes which occasionally appeared on old comedy shows such as Abbott & Costello (my favorite growing up)?  One thing’s for sure, I was madly in love with the Amelia Earhart aviator jacket which appeared in a UGGs catalog shortly after the brand gained mass popularity.  I remembered pining over it for days; how expensive and unattainable it seemed.  When I had finally saved up for it, I had waited too long and it was totally sold out =(.  Winter, as usual, has peaked my interest in this particular style of outerwear and accessories once more…

P.S. Juicy Couture has created a chic faux twist (in dragonfruit) to our beloved Mad Bomber styled hats…
