In her debut studio album Modus Vivendi, 070 Shake has a song called ‘Nice to Have’. It – like all the others – is searingly beautiful in all ways that a song can be, but it’s the lovelorn lyrics that are probably the most affecting: “It’s nice to have someone to hold you, tell you they chose you – someone you can’t fool cause they know you,” is just one of them. If you’re currently single, listening to this song may well be a particularly sombre experience – and that’s exactly why you need a bomber jacket in your life.

Much like this phantom figure who’s supposed to make you feel more loved and wanted than ever before, bomber jackets offer a level of comfort that you’ll want to commit to. Yes, leather jackets, denim jackets and coats are just as important, but being without a bomber jacket in your wardrobe is like rejecting your one chance at love. We know that you might be apprehensive about love – terrified even – but all of those anxieties will melt away once you find your perfect bomber jacket – your soulmate, in other words. All of a sudden, you’ll realise that you can put it on over some rags from 2010 and still look extremely – and effortlessly – cool. It will get on famously with the people that matter to you the most (and solicit compliments from those that don’t). In winter, it will keep you warm, but – being the least overbearing of all the winter jackets – it could easily last you until spring. Eventually, you might get close enough to your bomber jacket for it to reveal that it was originally created for pilots and called a ‘flight jacket’. This makes perfect sense, you’ll think – no wonder it’s so functional!
