Looking to be the comfiest, most stylish man in the room? Los Angeles-based menswear brand Buck Mason just released the Felted Rally Bomber, an incredibly handsome piece that remixes the A-1 Flight Jacket with boiled merino wool construction.

Boiling merino wool, for those who don't know, alters the typically itchy fabric on a molecular level and transforms the single strands into a uniform mass. This not only delivers increased softness but "supercharges" the strength and warmth-to-weight ratio considerably. It also delivers a handsome texture and is near-impossible to wrinkle, making it an easy choice for travel.

They finished the piece with proper detailing, like real horn buttons and versatile wool knit rib trim throughout. It also has a flattering drape and a dialed-in fit. "Where the original borders on blousy, we opted for cleaner, tailored lines with a simplified patch pocket," the brand says.

For those who are feeling the look, two different colorways are available right here
