From hip hoppers to Harley riders, many people wear winter jackets to express their cool attitude. Leather jackets are the favourite accessory of rock stars and rock star wannabes, but they also have an illustrious history. They are utterly fashionable and are useful in various lines of work and recreation. They are one of the few clothing items that can easily make the transition between shopping mall and a dinner date. For many people, the birth of leather jackets began with Marlon Brando in The Wild One, James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause and with Jack Nicholson, Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper in Easy Rider. Then, of course, there is Fonzie, everyone's favorite '50s cool cat of television, not to mention Danny Zucco/John Travolta in Grease.
Since movie and television characters from the '50s, '60s and '70s were often seen sporting leather, the artists and rock stars of the real world picked up the cue. There are as many types of leather jackets as there are situations for wearing them. The classic bomber jacket, worn by the military and celebrities alike, is less tailored and thicker. Italian leather jackets are known for their longer, more tailored cut and soft material.
Motorcycle jackets, typically sporting many buckles and zippers, are quite popular with the biker boys. A modified version, often lined with metal studs, was worn by The Ramones and British punk rockers in the 1970s. Designers like Christian Dior and Gucci have added details to fitted leather jackets such as intricate stitching. In 2008, some designers came out with leather jackets in asymmetrical cuts, giving an old classic a fashionable edge. Some jackets came with a hood, zip-off sleeves, and distressed leather or lined.
