Product Overview

Ever since a leather-jacketed Marlon Brando slouched across the screen in The Wild One, the jackets mixture of animal magnetism, brooding menace, and sexual provocation has made it a must-have for hipsters, rebels, and fashionistas. This entertaining book chronicles the leather jacket from its roots among World War I flying aces to its present incarnation in high fashion. Along the way, it shows how every generation and subculture including the Hells Angels, beats, punks, movie stars, counterculturists, and fetishists has made the leather jacket its own.
