The bomber jacket, worn by aviators for decades, is the quintessential symbol of cool masculinity. It has made a return to the fashion runways this fall, and Stefano Ricci, staying true to the brand’s luxury heritage, has the best variation on the classic design: a plongé-lambskin-and-down bomber jacket (left, price on request). Embellishments include a cashmere lining, hand-stitched embroidery on one arm, and a beaver-fur collar. (212.371.3901, www.stefanoricci.com)
