When I reviewed Everlane's E2 Bomber here, I extolled the virtues of a bomber jacket without any embellishments. So I was pretty excited to see an all silk bomber jacket on Grana's site and knew I had to try it out (and thanks to all those who click on my referral link, I could)!
So first a note on size. I'm wearing a medium here and you can see that it's still quite cropped and fitted on me (for reference I'm 5'4" and usually a size 4 on top). Since it's so cropped and fitted, it would be challenging to wear anything thick and warm underneath the bomber (here I'm wearing Everlane's silk shell). If you're wearing this in a colder climate then you would probably have to wear a thick jacket or coat on top of the bomber.
The silk that this bomber is made from is their 22mm georgette satin, so it has a heavier weight and more of a sheen than Grana's 14mm silk (this is my personal favorite of the two types of silk Grana offers). This is the same silk used on their V-neck slip dress and their silk culottes. Because of the silk material, this bomber is quite unstructured (especially compared to Everlane's bomber which was super structured since it had a light filler layer. I personally prefer a more structured look to a bomber so I wasn't a fan of this look. But on the plus side, the bomber is also lined with silk on the inside so you it does feel like you're wearing a kind of sumptuous kimono.
This silk bomber is probably best for those who live in warmer climates or as a substitute for a cardigan inside the office. But true outerwear this is not.
