After an infinitesimal series of articles on how to wear a jacket, a costume, I pass and the best, it was time to move on and become #wild and # rock’n’roll (as it has of course Always been the case).
We had not talked about it here, so we will discuss (about two large items) the subject of leather jackets.
Of course we will talk about history, subjects etc but this time without going into too much detail for the most technical points: you will have the tools to have a global understanding, and some links to consult if you want to go further.
I The History Of Leather Jackets
Created according to legend in 1910 by a certain Mr. Walter, the leather jacket was at the base made of bricks and pitcher to meet a purely functional requirement. The first were jacket bombers, known mainly for their comfort and durabilié, and not really for the precision of their cut. They were initially in sheepskin, with the fur inside to keep warm.
Leather had several practical advantages: it is the material that best adapts to the shape of your body over time and if you have a slightly curved leather, you surely already realized it is waterproof , Durable and resistant.
This explains why it is used by bikers to protect themselves. The leather also resists heat, wind, abrasion and is a naturally breathable material.
Entering Culture With The Perfecto
The perfecto was created in 1928 by Irving Schott to dress Long Island bikers on their Harley Davidson. Schott becomes a reference brand for the leather jacket, and its flagship model is still, 84 years later.
According to Educationvv.com, these biker jackets are derived from those for pilots and aviators, put with a thickness and a reduced length to adapt to their needs.
Apart from their practical function in everyday life, they quickly integrate a cultural dimension. It is in the form of the bomber, but especially the Perfecto, the name of the cigar preferred by its inventor, that they are popularized through the cinema. Gary Cooper Indiana Jones
Marlon Brando focus specifically perfecto in the film The Wild Ones.
Nowadays, it is also with Matrix and the long black leathers, Terminator and especially Fight Club and the famous red leather of Brad Pitt;
The shapes vary and the most original creators like Rick Owens and Barnabé Hardy are worn by the pop star, from Black Eyed Peas to Kanye West and Jay-Z.
