Care Guide for the B10 Bomber

November 29, 2021

Maybe a flight risk, but an easy one to care for with the right tips.

This beauty of a Jacket was first created for the US Air Force pilots and you can count on it to clock up the air miles, provided you take good care of it.

Washing it: One shot

- When the time comes to clean it, don't take any chances, but rather take it to the pros, as in your local dry-cleaners once a year.

- However, should you choose to, you can machine wash it. Just remember to remove the lining and the collar before putting it in the wash. We recommend machine-washing it on a cold setting - 30°C max - with similar colours and using liquid detergent - and max 1000rpm to rinse it out.

- Whatever you do, no tumble-drying. Just let your B10 Bomber dry in the open on a hanger, and avoid direct sunlight.

- You might want to boost the water repellency after every wash with a few sprays of water-proofing.

- The removable parts (lining, collar) can benefit from more regular care, so feel free to wash them more often. For the lining, use a cold setting on thee machine with a gentle rinse cycle. For the collar (a mix of wool and recycled polyester), simply soak it in cold water with a drop of natural soap.

Stains, no need to overdo it.

The B10 Bomber's 100% cotton canvas fabric is a hard one to leave marks on. Here's how to take care of any stains that try to do so.

- Fatty, oily stains can be mopped away with a cloth and some degreaser (only specific for textiles, please don't use the one for your oven) and same goes for coffee, tea or any other brews**. For more thorough stains, use some natural soap and a drop of white vinega**r. We hear baking soda also works wonders.

- Any wine, beer and liquor stains after a wild night? Just a damp cloth and some rubbing alcohol will do the trick (3 volumes of water for 1 volume of alcohol).

- On bloodstains - we won't ask whose it is just give you the care tip here - a bit of cold water and that's it (no hot water as this would help the haemoglobin to fix).

For all the dust and debris that you're Bomber might collect during your adventures, just use a special textile brush to make them fly away (extra care on the zipper which dirt tends to stick to).

Now, we've pretty much covered it all, it's bye from us for now and safe flight to you.
