Leather jackets have been a part of our cultural history for some time. From fighter pilots to street racers to bikers, the tough and cool imagery related to real leather is important to understand as the inspiration for our love affair with leather. Time and again, we see examples of real leather jackets in film and television as the outfit of choice for an iconic character.
Everyone knows that leather jackets are cool, because they are historically associated with tough, masculine characters. Leather jackets tend to put us in mind of a different time, gentlemen’s clubs with cigar smoking and cognac, or the muscle cars of the fifties and sixties. Women are also fans of real leather, both on men or for themselves. Real leather is a perennial favorite and reminds us of a more classic time.
