Bomber jackets have been a Fall and Winter staple in high fashion for the past 2 decades, but RAF SIMONS' "Riot! Riot! Riot!" Bomber Jacket is in a league of its own. Now considered a vintage piece, this 2001 camouflage bomber, made popular by the likes of Kanye West and Rihanna just sold for $47,000 on the popular streetwear auction site Grailed.com.

While it's anyone's guess how many of these bomber jackets are left, it's safe to say this was the highest selling piece of its kind ever. Vintage styles are always in fashion, however now we're seeing more recent pieces go up for sale and net huge returns. For those that may think high fashion is a bad investment, should look through their closet. They just might have a gem they regretted buying.  

 

For those looking, there are a few similar styles still on auction for a more sensible $25,000
