Badass, one word that describes a leather biker jacket in the most simplest way. It’s very origin suggests that it was exclusively crafted to create an illusion of someone who would not hesitate riding his bike off a cliff. Marlon Brando introduced this iconic jacket 60 years ago, when he donned a Schott Perfecto in The Wild One. A Bad Boy with a heart is how you recall Johnny Strabler, the leader of an infamous motorcycle gang “The Black Rebels”. This iconic character and of course the iconic motorcycle leather armour earned a bad name and caused so much commotion that it got banned from the schools in the U.S of A.
However, soon leather biker jackets made their way into the mainstream fashion and onto the ramps. Since then it has never got off it, as every now and then you would find some model walking that glittery ramp in a biker jacket with a different touch. It’s just not models that you’ll find falling for leather jackets every season, but celebrities have also took to this iconic piece in order to pull that rocking appearance off. Movie stars, throughout the history have played their part in making sure the biker jacket remains a menswear staple. The likes of Steve McQueen, Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt & David Beckham are fond of these timeless leather pieces and they don’t let us forget that time and time again.
Every year’s winter collection from around the world is deemed incomplete without leather jackets in it. Subsequently every year’s leather collection is inadequate without this seminal piece of menswear.
